:hysterical: I use 12/0 circle hooks! :hysterical: But I'm fishing for huge or none. If you want more hook sets, spend a little extra and get kahle hooks in the sizes that he reccommended. You will NOT be disappointed. They won't straighten out as easy as a regular hook either, cause they're designed for the hook to set in the side of the fish's mouth. You'll get more hook sets and loose less bait. A lot of people will tell you its not worth buying them too, and I'm TELLING YOU.....it is.Originally posted by Snowman
That sounds good to me too. Now what about hook size? Lloyd at the marina said #6 for more fish #7 for fewer but bigger fish won't straighten em. WOW thats some big:***: hooks!
Then what about the anchors at the ends of the line. One option sounds like a tree on the bank and 1 anchor the other has an anhor at boff ends. How much weight for and anchor is needed?
