I met a fellow at the river one day and he told me something that I have never forgotten. I was using 8/0 gama circle hooks, and he saw my hooks and said "son" what are you using that big hook for?..he asked me if I had caught any fish that day and I said nope. He proceded to tell me he only used 2/0 J and circle hooks for all his flathead fishing..He said he used to use big hooks untill he found out that he could catch more and bigger fish by downsizing everything, hook, swivel, line, sinker. He went on to tell me me that only the most agresive fish will hit a bait with a big hook in it, and I was missing alot of fish that would not even touch my bait. Your thoughts?
