    I'm gonna be tinkering with circle hooks this year and I've only used them for cut bait.I use mainly bullheads for Flathead bait.So how would I hook one with a circle hook?I was thinkin thru the lips with a 7/0 - 8/0 gama.Does that sound ok?

    If I'm fishing the river that's the way I like to hook them, but if I'm fishing a lake I hook them behind the dorsal fin.
