this evening i tryed for some channels with cut bait. i usually use a bigger rod with a circle hook and leave my bait clicker on and have no problems but this time i tryed leaving the reel engaged and puting the rod in a sturdy holder. when a fish would take the rod down and load up but then let go. the circles werent hooking them, tryed two different kinds. any advice, please dont say to use j hooks cause i already know they work, im just trying something new.
