Circle Hooks - Info needed


Recommended Posts


I was using a size 4 circle hook for Bream /Whiting and couldn't catch any fish . I had better luck with  J hook. I was told  for circle hooks we don't need to set the hook . Is that true ? Also found it easier to put bait on the J hook.

Would like to know if we need to set the hook for circle hooks or can we just cast and leave it until we get a bite.

circle hooks would not be my choice for whiting..stick to long shank hooks...ive been down the circle hook path and I just stick to 540 French hooks for bream or suicides work as well..i tried them on snapper and imo they are a fail on reds..too bony in the mouth..rick
