    Hey guys i wanted to get some opinions on which style of hook is better. I have always used Circle hooks with good success. Any thoughts?

    I would have to agree with this statement. I Never tried them for blues or flats but when the channels are really biting good IMO there's nothing better.

    "That's exactly what I wanted to hear about the hooks", because I'm going to be giving them a shot this up & coming season on mainly the Channels here in the Ca. Delta & in a lot of other places.

    Circle hooks is the only hooks that I like to use when im catfishing, there good hooks and the best part is the fish hooks there own self on the circle hook, so I believe I will stick with the circle.
