Looks like I’m going to circle hooks anyway. I missed a lot of fish on my jugs yesterday. The bait would be messed with or gone and cat slime all over the line. I drift fished while waiting to check the jugs and had 6/0 circle hooks on my rods and caught a bunch of small channel cat. Hooked them all in the corner of the mouth. I just have to find circle hooks with a big enough eye for the jug line to go through. 6/0 that I have eyes are to small.
Snap swivel.

snell knot on the hook
Great advice but I’m using 100# monofilament and instead of swivels I tied the staging leaving a loop I usually run through the eye of the hook and loop it back. Circle hook eyes are to small for this.
I really appreciate the reply.
