i have tried circle hooks when i fish from my kayak as it rocks and moves around a lot even in a soft wind, hard to detect strikes unless they run with it. circle hook reduces that by 90% but i do not hook up quite as much with it. i still use a regular wacky hook from a boat. just have to watch the line like the others said
Try the Circle Hook again. There is nothing you can do to completely stop them swallowing the hook. Some days they are just "TOO SNEAKY"! The best I have found is the 2/0 Daiichi Wacky Circle hook. The key to ANY circle hook is not to jerk or set the hook. When the fish swims off just reel tight and pull sideways and it will have a higher hook up ratio than a regular hook and and and they can't throw the hook!
