I found these neat hooks made by eagle claw a couple of months ago at a local K mart Sporting goods store and I picked them up and thought Why not.
Well my main reason why I wanted them was the fact of all the hooks I have been useing have either been gut hooked , or just to wide and foul hooked the Bull Gills I have been catching. Since I am a catch and release angler ( eventhough I do eat what I reap ) I hated tryin to release gut hooked catches.
So T tried them and man what a huge difference they made. Vey Little gut hook and since i fish barbless these hooks are super for what I'm looking for.
Now my question is , since these hooks are Designed for Crappie , should I fish them ( rig wise ) differently for these bull gills.
So far My largest bull gill has been just over 10 inches and these hooks have held up good under pressure.
Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
