Re: Using circle hooks on live-bait


I think I know the reason people tend not to use circle hooks, it is because chinook salmon have a rather hard mouth, and with a circle the method is you don’t strike; you just leave the drag on a reasonable ammount…. so it may not penertrate the salmons mouth, a strike may be nessacary for it to penertrate….

So the good old octopus, or J hook may be the best option.
