We ran trot lines in flooded timber on Lake Ouchita. The circle hooks are less likley to snag on logs and limbs. However they were great on catfish. The 4/0 size caught any were from less than a pound up to a 10lb channel.
Bought them for red drums in the Gulf of Mexico.this was my first red fishing trip. I used only one hook all day. Caught several fish of all kinds. Never had to replace the hook. very happy with my purchase
