    any body on here use octopus hooks or even octopus circles. If so how are your results and the octopus hooks are more of a j so do i set the hook hard or reel and pull a little like a circle? Sam with an octopus circle, although they are shaped a lot like a circle i do both with them and hook up both ways sometimes.

    I use both, about the same hookup ratio with either. I'm a sweep and pull type hook setter if I set at all.

    I use the octopus circles, with great hook up ratio's.....I never touch the rod till it's bent over double.
