    lmao yes they're perfect for limb lines, because when the fish eats the bait and swims off just like on rod and reel it hooks itself. when I limb lined all I used were circles.

    All I use now is King Kat 12/0 circles for limb and setlines. I like them over other circles because the way the tip is bent keeps it from running back into the bait.

    Nothing but circle hooks for any type of tension spring resistance like a limbline, diddy pole, inner tube, etc. Unless you don't mind a dead gut-hooked fish the next morning. Even if the hookup ratio for unmanned circle hooks were down to 75%, I think I would still use them to avoid the stiff-as-a-board dead fish who swallowed the hook. That is truley sad, I assure you. Peace.
