This video explains which circle hooks we use when targeting sharks. The smaller hook is a 12/0 Eagle Claw L2004 Circle Sea. We use this hooks for smaller sharks (under 8ft). This is best hook to use for surf casting rigs. It's a great hook for blacktips as well. The larger hook is a Lindgren Pitman 18/0 circle hook. We use this hook when targeting shark species such as hammerheads, bulls, and tigers. It's a great hook and it's cheap!
