Well, I have tried them before to no avail. Maybe I just was not setting up right or maybe just not big enough fish. Well, I had not given up on em. My buddy got permission to fish an old farm pond tonight in South Bloomfield. It was a little hike to get to but we fished it. It was kind of last minute so only bait we had were good ol worms and chicken liver. There is a farm pond that actually has a little channel that runs into a small gravel pit. We fished the pond for a couple hours and only got bull heads to bite. We were tearing em up. lol We went to the gravel pit and I baited (with a gob of worms) up my 6600 Rocket, on my Gator Rod, with a 7/0 Diiachi Circle Chunk light hook on it. It was a purdy sound that was made. The line had only been in the water maybe 5 minutes when it sung that wonderful song. I was amazed at that sound. I have heard that is is nice to hear, but to actually hear my reel doing it was amazing. lol I locked er down and started reeling. Like a charm that hook sunk in and I reeled in a nice 8-9# Channel cat. It was perfectly hooked in the corner of the mouth. I also caught a small channel after that on the same setup. I am glad I never gave up and listened to yall talk about em so much. I will switch to them from now on. Only bad part of the trip was that it was a private pond and could not use the fish for the fishoff. But, still pleanty of time left for that. Thanks for all those that talk up the circle hooks, I am a believer now.
