Just got back from the river. I'm real tired so this might not come out right,lol. I had several good runs tonight on cut bait and live gills. I waited till the fish pulls the rod down hard and set the hook hard straight over my head. I missed all but 6 fish. Right when they pulled down I nailed them and nothing was there??? Two were big flatheads, they bent my med/heavy action rods down good when they pulled. I'm using 7/0 octopus hooks that I don't think are sharp enough, I try and run a stone over them to help. I've heard that you have to set the hook sideways/sidearm style on an octopus hook,is this true? Basically why did I miss these fish?
