    I gotta stick with my circle hooks, I have had too much luck with them to quit using them.

    King Kahles will work very well on blues. I use them on flatheads, but am leaning towards 10/0 circles for big blues....they usually hit like a freight train and circles work well too.:big_smile:

    I use both circles and kahles and really like both. The 7/0 nickle plated eagle claw kahles and the 8/0 through 10/0 king kahles work great for blues, channels and flatheads. Just try to match your bait size to the hook size and size fish you are targeting. Another great thing about them is you can lock your reels down and fish them like circles or you can set your clicker and jerk as hard as you want to.

    I use 9/0 10/0 KK's and circles, but, remember witch poles have the circles or you'll pull the hook right out. Blues are pretty aggressive when they hit, good sharp hooks are a sure bet if you find them and offer them what they want.

    I agree with Johnny on this one. I like the kahles because I love to set the hook hard.
