I found a thread on this the other day, but it was back from 2009, so I’d just like some updated opinions to see if anyone’s has changed. And sorry I’m advance if this has been beat to death. I just recently ordered two baitcast reels with bait clickers. I use circle hooks almost exclusively. My question to everyone is; will a circle hook still do it’s job running the reel free spool with the clicker on? All I’m using the clicker for is an alarm. As soon as I hear it, I’ll switch the clicker off and engage the reel. Hopefully that will let the rod load up. I dont plan on letting the fish run with the bait for any real amount of time. Iv heard a lot of people say that they miss a ton of fish in free spool. Can anyone shed any light on this for me? Thanks!
