I use any of a few varieties of octopus hooks...I found the best sizes are 2/0-4/0...bigger hooks for bigger baits, I also put a flourescent float/bead above the hook which raises the bait off the bottom and gives it better action. Gamakatsu and Owner both make excellent hooks and are razor sharp...also check out the VMC cone cut hooks...they could be my favorite as they also come in an array of colors to jazz up the presentation in low light on the bottom they dont call them octopus so look for the salmon/walleye hooks those are the ones they are also our hooks for bass when we chunk and drag eels with larger sizes for the chunks. Never tried circle hooks for fluke but its worth a try so ill do that some time this summer.
