:doubt:Anyone know where to find big eyed kahl or circle hooks???
I don't remember the exact # but I got some Eagle claw circles from catfish connection to rig my jugs. The eyes were easily big enough to double up #18 trotline through them. They list the maximum size line that can be used in their hook descriptions on the website.
How did those circles work on your jugs?
MUSTAD 39965 HAS LARGER EYE AND SLIGHT OFFSET.
They worked great. I now use circles on all setlines. I seem to catch more fish. I believe that the circles hold fish better not letting them off as easy. I don't use the circles on rod and reel, but they are the way to go with setlines.
Thanks guys...I appreciate it. One more thing R P, what size circles are you using on your set lines?
9/0 if rigging for flatheads and 4/0 when rigging for channels. I use big gils when rigging for flatheads so I like a big hook. I usually bait with liver for the channels and the 4/0 work good. On small channels the only bad thing is the circles usually hook them coming out the eye.
Do your circles have "inline" points or "offset"????Just curious.....Dwight
They are offset.
I would give the inlines a try....The more offset the point, the farther down the gullet it's likely to hook...The inlines won't set till it rounds the jaw on the way out.....Of course, I sure there are exceptions to that rule....Dwight
