I am quiet sure that I could do a lot of research from different threads and answer all of these questions. But I just never seem to have enough time too. So will any of you please throw in your 2 cents here please? I have catfished all of my life but have never been taught any correct ways of doing it. Yet i have caught my fair share of fish. But never any monsters. I am not worried about that to much long as I can catch enough for the skillet. But let me get on to my questions. 1- From reading older post the majority of yall likes wither the circle hooks are the Kahle hooks. I do not want to know which one is best because everyone has different opinions. They both must work good. So are these particular hooks only for cut are live baits? It seems that they would be not very good for dough baits? I have always used a treble hook for dough bait. Does Kahle are someone that makes the circle hooks have something on the single hooks that helps hold the dough bait on? 2- I also understand that your monster cat's are usually caught from live bait. Is this true are can you catch some of the grandaddys with dough bait? 3- When your fishing for food do you normally have at least two hooks on your line? I will probably have a few more to add to this later. But I just want to get a few replies from this 1st. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.
