I have started using circle hooks to catch big blues....and i use very large baits.
Today, I landed a 50, a 40, and a 30 lb blue. Lost 5 good running hits, which I gave time for chewing, and when I wents to apply that gentle circle hook pressure.......the hook never hooks-up with the hawg.
I'm trying to use a hook with some offset..or else bending some offset into the hook.
What's the best brand? I've used Cabelas King Kat...Eagle Claw Circle ...Gamakatsu....
What about two hooks?? Help, I'm getting bites...but not hooking-up.
Mike Mitchell should know.
