Anybody use circle hooks on assist rigs? I've got to make some and looking at different hooks to use. We are mandated to use circle hooks for natural bait when fishing for reef fish. Just curious how circle hooks work on assist rigs.
it goes completely against the concept of circle hooks. The technique with a circle hook is to reel tight with no violent moves such as setting the hook however with jigging the jig is being ripped through teh water column where a violent strike occurs.
It may be a worth while test in NC, I will tie some and try but I wouldnt think it would be very successful
