He was using our #1's.


Our sizing breakdown goes as follows:

Ringer Swivels
#1's= 6/0-9/0 circle hooks, dink to medium ballyhoo. 98% of our 1.5 million swivels we've sold are this size, target species sailfish, striped marlin, white marlin, mahi, etc.
#2's= thicker wire hook than your typical sailfish thin circle hooks, our customers typically use a 9/0-10/0 thicker wire circle hook with large/horse ballyhoo trolling or pitching for blue marlin, small black marlin.
#3's= 3x wire hooks, typically 10-12/0 applications, again horse ballyhoo or small mackerel pitch baits. Personally I prefer the #4 over the #3's when I am rigging my blue marlin pitch baits.
#4's= 12/0-20/0 circles, our biggest baddest strongest Ringer Swivel. Baitmasters now sells all of they're pre-rigged Spanish Mackerels with our #4's. Customers live bait small tunas in the GOM around the oil rigs for marlin with these, or pitch bonita's/mackerel's to blue marlin/black marlin. Our customers in New England are also bridling their live baits for Giant BFT with our #4's, the live baits will swim more natural and be less stressed against currents/tides as the hook pivots independently of the bait.

What is the knot called where he tied the leader to the braid (not the triple overhand knot)?

I have been using that knot for a long time and it looks like they call it the No Name knot.
