what would be the best hooks to use for YFT

Cheers guys

Sharp ones. :074::074:


I use Pakula Dojo 15mm -40mm depending on line kg,

Here they are double rigged

or Wasabi 7/0 to 11/0.

But as mentioned, must be razor sharp.

Double hook rigs are better for trolling lures. Make sure you are using good strong hooks such as Mustad 7691s. 80lb braid will straighten light gauge hooks with ease.

Hey Crazy, just a quick question, any reason as to why you are using 80lb (37kg) tackle for YFT? For 37kg you can't really use light gauge hooks so I'd say a mustad 7691S in a twin hook rig would be perfect for tuna. You'll need to sharpen them as they are crap out of the packet...

Just be aware lads that Ande is not IGFA rated- although the premium choice due to its transparency for YFT, if you do make a record claim, you can only hope it breaks below designated rating.

If your food fishing, can't go past it though.

Hey Ant, IGFA rated Ande at a couple of different shops, and on their website they advertise an IGFA line called Ande tournament and a non IGFA line called Ande premium - is that what you're talking about?

After fighting a 'fin for one and half hours last year, I'll only be fishing 24kg this season :biggrin2:
