    I was at wally world today and I grabbed a package of eagle claw octopus size 2 red hooks to try crappie fishing(with just a minnie stuck on them) anyone use these for crappies?? do you fish them like catfish circle hooks and just start reeling when they take off? I thought they might work well as you can't hit a crappie bite hard anyway---thanks in advance---Rod

    I tried them once. they were ok. I did like that they dont hang up in brush nearly as bad but I also didnt like their hookup ratio at all compaired to a an old aberdeen. So aberdeens are still what I use
