I love circle hooks for live bait since they typically grab it and run. In my experience fishing chunk, the majority of the time that I hook up its a minor tap similar to a eel/perch/catfish... It renders the circle ineffective in that situation. I fished chunk for years with circles waiting for a "run" with little success. It wasn't that many years ago that I found out those little tap tap and drops could be the big girls.
