After my experience the other day of 7 hookups with only one boated fish, I had the opposite experience yesterday. Three hookups with three in the boat. It also reinforced the opinion I've begun to form regarding Pinks and the Daiichi 2546 size 6 and the Gamakatsu SC15 size 2. Size wise, these hooks are interchangeable. I can't explain Gamakatsu's sizing. It is what it is. On those 2 days of fishing, all fish that came unstuck (6) were on the Daiichi hook, all boated fish (4) were on the Gamakatsu. The caveat on this is that this was for Pinks only. It could also probably apply to sea runs and trout. For larger, harder fighting fish, the finer wire of the Gamakatsu might become a problem. I'm looking forward to testing that theory!
