Hi Raiders, I have seen a lot of talk about how circle hooks are great for fish hooking themselves in the corner of the mouth. For me, this seems ideal no matter what kind of fish or whether you want to keep them or release them. But of course, if circle hooks were the be-all end-all then everyone would only use circles and shops wouldn't have endless rows of other hooks. This brings me to the questions: First, if circle hooks are so great, why doesn't everyone use them? What don't they work for? What are they actually designed to be ideal for? Second, are there any other designs of hook that would work to ideally cover the situations where a circle hook would be weak?
Hi everyone. Been getting into some good sized bream and flatties out of my kayak. But I seem to drop quite a few. I'm using 1/0 or 2/0 longshanks with live bait. Should I go to a suicide or something? I bring them up slowly, but a last shake of flattie spits the hook before I can get the net under them. Bream likewise. Appreciate any experienced fisher!
