For those of you who use circle hooks how many fish do you have that just "get off"? In the last year I've had dozens of fish that just come off sometimes after several minutes of fighting sometimes quick. My father had a fish hooked up for 30 minutes last summer. Couldn't do anything with it. After a long fight the line just went slack:sad2:. I told him it was probably a gar but when he got the line back in the boat everything looked fine and there was slime about three foot up the line. I've had several fish on that I am sure were real big that just came off. How about you? I have also caught alot of fish that were barley hooked in the corner of the mouth. I think that these fish that "just come off" are tearing the hook out of their mouths. Last few times out I've switched to lighter rods and lighter drag but doesn't seem to help. Tried different circles as well. Have you got an opinion?
