Owner Super Mutu Circle Hooks are made using a super strong, thick shank for catching jumbo fish and using jumbo bait. The Owner Super Mutu Hook is a circle hook designed for very large bait applications when targeting the largest fish the sea has to offer.
Big Tuna fishermen in southern California and Baja turn to this hook almost exclusively. Most commonly used for saltwater live bait fishing, the Mutu circle hook is designed to allow natural, free swimming action by the attached live bait.
The unique hook point is designed to slide out of the gullet of the fish and hook the corner of the mouth upon hookset. The result is less gut hooked fish for more sustainable catch and release; Mutu's have a 90% jaw-hooked rate. Check out the video for more information regarding Owner's circle hooks.
