Eddie,

If you are not woried about securing the hook in a holder you can simply slip a small plastic bead above the hook and let the octopus hook swing free. This past July when I went on a Point Rip Trip off Monomoy, I used this successfully on Squid tube patterns, in fact I went as much as a 5/0 octopus hook - it worked like a charm.
