I fish my local beach at rainham quite regularlyand wondered why i kept loosing fish some big some small. Well iwent fishing this week with Miz git ie JOHN i put one rod out with my normal 1.0 kamasan 940, and one rod with no 4 circle hooks, bait being lug and rag. I found it very hard to put the bait on the hook. Very time consuming and messy,any help in this area would be helpfull. But every bite on rod with circle hooks landed a fish.As the rod with the 1.0 kamasan missed quite a lot .MORAL OF STOREY i have fished some thirty years and still learning:wheelchai 007

I used half circle hooks quite a bit last year and had some success with hooking certain species. They seemed to work well with dogs, pout and thornbacks hooking them straight in the side of the mouth. I missed loads of bass bites on them though which put put me off using them.
I used mackeral,bluey and crab all sat well on the hook. I only use Sakuma phantoms or mantas for worm baits now and find my hook up rate a lot better.

What fish did you catch using the circle hooks the other night ??
