    Circles for me. When I use J hooks the fish seem to swollow them more but thats probably my fault.

    Yessiree. I can totally relate to this. Down with circle hooks!!! lol, no, I am joking. I like circles ok, but I like the octopus hooks better for the bigger cats. I use circles mostly for bullheads and channel cats.

    I'll mostly use J style hooks, but I'll use a circle every now and again. I can use both with great success, as long as I don't forget I'm using a circle hook and start jerking, which happened on a few bites a week ago.

    KAHLE for me. I cant get used to not setting the hook. Im not going to knock them. I know alot of guys that use circle hooks and have landed big fish. I think it is like a Chevy vs. Ford thing. Its whatever u like and can get used to. Thanks for reading. REMEMBER, its always a good day for cat fishing!!!!

    For me i use 3/0-9/0 kahle hooks. Not to say that circle hooks are not good but they are not for me. I think it is likle a Chevy vs. Ford thing. Finding the right hook is important, but, the right hook for you may be different than everyone else. Get them both and try. You might surprise you're self.
