If you don't mind spending a little more...

on hooks, check out some of the live bait hooks from gamakatsu (not cheap!) and owner(Yikes!) I've only used tubes in salt for blue water and inshore in Baja (so far), but these hooks are Capitol S-T-I-C-K-Y, and durable. Available in straight and offset hook points. Just avoid the heavy wire "fly-liner" types. Real tough to get penetration on soft takes.
