These are some cats caught on circle hooks, The fish are not biguns. These fish were caught on 8/0 circle hooks and the fish are 14 to 20 inches. Don't be afraid that if you use big circle hooks that you will not get the small fish as well, this is proof that you will. Bait was shad and I just let the fish take line for a few seconds and simply start reeling in. Do not haul up on the fish, you will pull the hook out of it's mouth! Hooks used are 8/0 Gamakatsu circles on a slip rig.
