Circle hooks in brush


Recommended Posts

I've brought this up before but want to refresh it so to speak. So for vertical presentations, slip bobbers in particular, are cirlces a good option to reduce snagging while maintaining hookup percentages? Thanks, later.

I rarely use anything but circle hooks in the situations you describe. And unless you're fishing a woody area, I believe that it's the weights that more often than not get hung up. But I do think that the circle hooks have kept me from hooking up the logs more often than a straight shanked hook ever did. The only thing I think is close is the old Kahle, which is basically a circle hook in the first place.

One thing I've tried the past couple of years and had success with, both catching fish and also not getting snagged with is a drop shot rig. If the weight gets hung up, you can give the line a tug, lose the weight, reel up the hook and tie a new weight on. WOrks great for still fishing too...
