I use j hooks when rod fishing for flatheads. I use circle hooks for trotlines, jugs, etc. I have read so many good things about circles that I am considering switching to them this season. My questions are 1)If you are rod fishing near heavy cover doesn't allowing the fish to swim off and hook itself allow the fish a better oppurtunity to get hung up in a snag? 2) What happens when the fish picks up the bait and swins toward you? 3) How do you develop the patience to not pick up the rod and set the hook?
