Circle Hooks

Postby panther5 » Tue Jun 10, 2008 8:01 pm

I'm trying to understand the concept that you DO NOT have to set the hook? Just slowly and steadily pulling on the rod while reeling and it's supposed to set itself. I've been trying them while catfishing and I like them so far but why not set the hook?
Thanks Fellas.

the hook is mad to hook the fish Only in the corner of the mouth
the fish has to swim away from you and as it pulls the hook out his mouth it rolles to the corner and it gets hooked

if you set the hook most of the time it will just come out not giving it a chance to roll to the corner of its mouth

try puting a circle hook with some line on it in your hand your hand closing your hand pull the line as if a fish swiming away with your bait you should see what im explaning to you
