Hopefully things would clear up a bit by Friday night for my traditional Christmas eve Snapper fish.
Mustad demons are one of only a few hooks which are straight eye and non-offset circles. Most circle hooks have a offset which increases the chance of large Snapper being hooked deep. It only seems to be a problem when stray lining without any weight. Owner SSW In-Line are another option and I think Eagle Claw also has one. Unfortunately all of these hooks cost around $2.00 rather then the $0.50 which I am prepared to pay for Snapper hooks.
