    Do they make circle hooks with big eyes? I like to use the #18 braided
    for dropper on trotlines and jugs. All of the circles I have seen have
    eyes more suitable for mono. I use circles on jugs but it is a art to threading the #18 line through. I

    eagle claw sea circles have some big eyes. i use 4/0 and you could fit a nail through it.

    Thanks guys, I love reading all of the tips and tricks on this sight, I just don't say much. I am one of those watch and listen(read) kind of guys.

    Thanks for the tip on the eagle claws.:0a31:

    Yes theres lots of them out there. We fished trot lines for a living for years. And never used anything bigger then a number 9 for a dropper. As you have to tie it off to the boat to break it if you get one hung up.
    We also never had a fish break one made out of a #9.
