I use Kahle and J hooks all the time and looked into circle and octo hooks. I have heard that you do not have to set the hook with circles. I have seen good and bad things about them on there. I am thinking about trying octopus hooks this year. Do you have to set the hook with them, and has anyone had a lot of success with them. I am sending an order to Bass Pro, and what are some recommended sizes and styles should I get for catfish?
