I was wondering instead of using a treble hook could I use a double action circle hook with a team catfish furry thing for Danny kings punch bait instead. Just a plain treble hook

I’ve tried it. I even bought the ones from Team Catfish with the circle hooks. It missed every fish that hit, the furry thang slides down and fills the hook gap. There has to be a way to make it work, I’m still trying to find it.

If your punch bait is real sticky it will work, if its mostly fiber then it wont hold too well to that. I also tried double action hooks and dip bait back when I mostly used dip baits and I never got them to work. I think I hooked a couple fish, but missed every fish that didnt swallow it and run. I would be able to set the hook and stick 20 times more fish with a super sharp #6 treble.

instead of sliding it on the hook turn it sideways and run the hook thru the middle of the furry thang......so it sets horizontal just under the barb ......less movement better hook up
