Circle Hook Eqiuvalent

Have always used the 6/0 O'Shaunessey Hook. Recently picked up Gamakatsu Octopus Circle Size 8/0. These hooks look "close" in size. Can someone 8/0 Circle Hook comparable... too big? Again fishing local beaches and possibly a boat. Have even used the 6/0's on boats in the past.

I use the 8/0 from the boat with clams and for livelining for bass fishing. I use 6/0 for livelining snappers for weaks and 4/0 for fluking. I don't think there would be a difference from the beach.

I found I had more belly hooked bass when I used the 6/0 circles and buried them in the clams. I would like to try 10/0 but I can't find them in any of the local shops.
