    I am new to the catfish game but I have to say that over the couple of months that I have been vewing this site I have learned a lot. I applaud all of the boc members for being willing enough to share information with out hesitating. keep up the good work.

    Question: I was wondering if anyone uses the king kat circle hooks by eagle claw? I want to try them but dont know if they are worth buying.

    Brad K uses them & I think he likes them. I am going to try them out myself this year. I have not seem them yet, but it sounds like they have a smaller gap then Gama Octopus Circles.

    Plus, lets not forget they are red, so if your fishing w/ a wife or girlfriend they will like them, if nothing else for the color. :)

    Back channel,

    I hope this helps. I haven't tried the King Kat hooks yet but I did buy some of the
    8/0 hooks for flatheads. My buddies and I did use the regular branded eagle claw circles with great success on channel cats and expect that the King Kats will bring the same results.

    Good luck
    Big Dave
