decided to try circle hooks this season and so far its cost me a keeper. had 3 lines in the water all 3 with cut bluegill. sitting there talkin to my buddy when wham my #3 rod bends over and almost touches the ground and the fish shot upstream. when i grabbed the rod and started to reel him in it was like he just let go. i would of thought that the amount of tension he put on the line and rod would of been enough to turn and sink the hook, but i guess it didnt.. dang!
