    I agree with you, kenny. Most folks either hate 'em of love 'em. If they are used correctly, they work great. I even use some size 4 & 6's for catching bait, as well as small inshore saltwater fish like whiting and spots. For spottails they work great, too. Almost never have one swallow the hook.
    Kahles also work good, and they can be fished just like circles, or you can set the hook with them, as with a 'j' hook. For cut bait, I usually stick with the circles, and use the kahles when drifting live or whole dead bait.
