Default Need Circle Hooks With Baitsavers

Was using a 7/0 circle hook and my clam flew off a few times. Is there a gami circle hook with baitsavers on it? Thanks

I've never seen any circle with baitholder barbs, probably be a good thing to start making.

Keeping clams on the hook casting a stiff graphite rod like a Tica can be difficult. Rods with more of a bend to em, glass rods for example, are easier to work with.
The other option is to give em a few wraps with bait string

I'm using a heavy action ugly stik with a 700 penn.

Most of the Ugly Sticks I've seen have plenty of bend
How are you hooking the baits up ?

Obviously you have to thread the bait onto the bait as much as possible, hooking it once or twice isn't going to work.

once through the top front of the tongue and then back through the middle. It only slides off with circle hooks and far casts.

I've never seen any circle with baitholder barbs, probably be a good thing to start making. I thought the same thing last time at the tackle shop

I prefer to use only the meat (muscle) of the clam and get rid of the offal and stringy parts (the clam's lips). The "presentation" should not be a huge glob of clam guts on a hook. The meat of one average clam is sufficient for two or three hooks. Thread the meat onto the hook, turn it and do it a 2nd and 3rd time making sure it's over the baitholder barbs and bury the hook point in the clam
There is another school of thought, the "Big Glob" theory which you can use when you are using large hooks, such as 6/0 baitholders or 8/0 circle hooks. In fact with circle hooks you basically need the whole clam to cover the hook completely

It's okay to use smalll rubber bands or elastic thread to hold your clams in place and the color doesn't matter

I like a Hi-Low bait rig (2 hooks spaced apart) for clams as it has more offerings

Actually after typing that last post I checked my box and found these, they do have circles with bait holders. I got them on sale locally though at a place called Ramseys Outdoor Store.
Actually Daiichi has a few different circles with bait holders. They do only have a single baitholder barb and not the double like a regular baitholder
