Ok... Maybe I am over thinking things, but for some reason I keep gut-hooking bluegill more often than not. Typically I am simply float fishing for bluegill (I enjoy the back to basics type of fishing for panfish). I have experimented with hook size and different types of hooks, but many times the end result is the same. I've played with my ultra light and micro light (both with 2lb line) thinking maybe I am setting the hook too hard, then I played with different bobber and line weights thinking it would somehow help, but no luck. I even used a larger bobber than I typically do and used my circle hooks (Which I've recently come to enjoy) and still have somehow ended up with the hook all the way back into their guts. SO... I figured I would just suck it up, and ask for advice. I enjoy fishing for panfish, and I've managed to catch some large ones, but the gut-hooking is something that's always been a concern of mine.
