Seems as though I should know the answer to this question... it has been floating around in the back of my mind for about two days and seeing as how I haven't convinced myself of the answer, I thought I would just throw it out for general discussion. Here's the set up... your jug fishing (or possibly limb lines, or trot lines, etc) and have several hooks on your line. You have a big fish on and suddenly it makes a break to get away from the deep fat fryer, ripping the line you have gathered into your boat through your hands. Now, a standard "J" hook is gonna get you, a kahle hook will probably get you... but would a circle hook get you? Seems like that would be against the nature of a circle hook, but you hear of the long liners in the North Atlantic, who uses circle hooks, getting caught all the time. So, whats everyones opinion?
