Re: Circle hooks
Making circle hooks mandatory is a good thing for bait fishing. But what about all those treble hooks on plugs? Many come with 3 treble hooks and a hooked fish usually winds up foul hooked in the gills or elsewhere besides the one in it's mouth. All my plugs have always been set up with 1 treble belly hook and a single barbed hook with bucktail for the tail. I have no problem catching bass and they are a lot easier to lip and release with a lot less damage to the fish or myself. Personally, I feel this should have been mandatory in the new regs.
