Im not having problems with circle hooks but other people that I introduce circle hooks to have problems with them. Crank dont yank, that the saying. A lot of my friends are having problems with it, the say it doesnt work out for them, I dont know if they aren't using it right or not. What hooks are you guys using, what size? I usually use a gamakatsu 6/0. Also Whats the difference between octopus hooks and circle hooks? Is there a difference or what?
