    Either or. Pretty much the only hook I use.

    I agree with what BigGeorge said. Kahles are my favorite hooks. I like to set them hard.

    That's what I use too. I like them alot. They usually hook themselves, then I can set the hook without worrying about pulling it from their mouth. I haven't got the hang of the circle hook yet. Neither have my friends. I have caught some fish with them, but lost a bunch too either waiting for them to run with it (which they don't always do), or getting anxious, and trying to set the hook. I guess when I start drifting more, I will probably use a circle, but until then, I don't have a use for them.

    I like these hooks, but, they are the biggest snag magnet I have ever used. I seldem get a hook back, if it doesn't have a fish on then it's snagged up. I have used and lost more 5/0 and 6/0 wide gap kahle hooks in the last two years than a life time of J hooks. I'll still keep useing them as long as I can afford to keep buying them.

    Usualy the hook has done most of the work before I pick up the rod, I still set the hook on them though.

    One day when you're catching eaters and you get one destined for the cooler, try and rehook him by hand. You'll find its not as easy as you think. Also gets harder as they get bigger.
