Sea fishing hooks come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each designed to catch different types of fish. The most popular hooks for sea fishing are the J-hook, circle hook, and treble hook.
J-hooks are the most widely used hook type and come in a variety of designs, including straight shank and offset hooks.
Circle hooks are known for their ability to catch fish without causing injury or mortality as they typically hook the fish in the corner of the mouth. Treble hooks have three hooks on a single shank, making it an excellent choice for lures, trolling, and bait fishing.
It is essential to choose the right hook size and type based on the target species, the fishing technique employed, and the fishing location. It’s also important to check local fishing regulations as some areas may have restrictions on the types of hooks allowed or require the use of barbless hooks.
