    How do men. Do any of u use circle hooks as your main hook. ie not just for top pennel. If so what size do u go for. I have never use them and think they look strange but this is because I am not use to them. Do you think in a big size they would offer an advantage on the wrecks in summer bait fishing

    They don't seem to be easy to use for threading worms etc and if you are using cart there isn't a lot to wrap your bait cotton onto.
    I am thinking about wrecking and maybe using them for assist hooks on pirks or using them with jellys/shads that don't have there own hooks?? what do you think? :)

    for fish baits and squid i think they could be good . as said not good for worm bait. I am thinking that if a big ling or cod took say a 10/0 it would hook itself every time..

    hi pal the reason circle hooks are so good fished static means the fish has a reasonable amount of time to swallow the bait or at least get it inside of its mouth for the circles to work effectively on a pirk or jig ,as an assists hook in my opinion wouldn't be as effective using circles as the lure is moving up and down at a certain speed that most fish would miss the point of hook up on a flying assist ,by all means give it a try but me personally I wouldn't have the confidence using them are there are far better assist hooks to be had ,stingers octopus to name a few I use owners as there really is nothing better but they do not come cheap, the best circle hooks I have found for general fishing are red rapala ,mutu circles or chinu owners which I stock up on two or three times a year from the sports fishing shop in Tenerife as are a bit cheaper over there, hope this helps.

    maybe a combination of a O'Shaughnessy lower and a circle higher up on a pirk??

    Circle hooks are designed to self hook fish in the side of the mouth and are great when used for cod and whiting as they self hook and you don't spend ages unhooking especially with whiting. With larger cod they are generally swallowed like all hooks and will hook well but deep in bigger fish. They are not suitable for jigs or moving lures as they are designed to turn when a fish moves away from a static line and impale in the jaw line. They were initially designed for long lining for bottom feeding species and I personally use them for the majority of my winter shore fishing with good success and rarely miss a bite as the fish generally hooks itself once the rod end goes.

    Tried them last year for bait fishing when wrecking., (Got 3rd in summer festival with a 15lb 10oz ling on a circle hook Admittedly pinched the rig from Perry) I found I was not connecting to the fish as often as when using O'Shaugnessy hooks needless to say I don't use them anymore. As a top hook on a pennel with a static bait then Why not. Everyone to his own I guess. Try them and see for yourself.
