    They are Eagle Claw 14/0. Very impressed with the quality of them and got a Great deal on 10 of them.
    I plan on using them with my Tite-Lok Bank Holder and let them do their thing. I'll also use BIG baits on these.

    I also have 100 Red 8/0 Octopus hooks that will be here soon. I got a good deal on them too.
    E-Bay is too darn addictive.....:wink::smile2:

    I'll get the pics on next post...I forgot....:(

    Does anyone know if stainless steel circle hooks for catfishing are available? All the stores around here don't have any. Catfishjon

    Nice looking hooks but be careful John.Don't get that sucker in a finger. That would take some serious cutting to get that baby out.Good luck on the trying them out.

    Catfishjohn,

    go to www.jmtackle.com and look at the Eagle Claw L2022, they are a wide gap circle and do a super job. If anyone wants some Demon Circle Hooks send me a PM, I think they are either 14/0 or 16/0. I know I will never use them.

    This will be my first year using circles. I've always been a J-Hook or Khale hook fisherman. The main reason I'm wanting to try them out is to give the Tite-Lok Bank Rod Holder a true circle hook test.

    If everything goes right and I can make it up to the gathering and we get on some fish I will show you my method of using circles for flats since they dont always load up just right.

    Much appreciated! I'll take all the tips and advice I can get on using them. It'll be hard to adjust to not setting the hook and crossing the cats eyes...:smile2:

    That is if he has the bait? If not, I know of a place or 2 to get shad if the river is not raging.
    The Flats, Oh Yeh!!!!:crazy::cool2::wink::smile2:
