I'll be fishing for blue catfish as well as channels and the lake I'll be fishing is lake tawakoni so I think I might stick to the 5/0 double action circle hook
I'd still suggest downsizing. I caught this big dude on a 3/0 hook because thats all I had on me at the time. And channel cats are gonna have a REALLY hard time getting the bait into their mouth with a hook that big, or at least most of the smaller ones that are going to be brought in by the punch bait.
Don't Run before you know your walk
You can't fix stupid, but you can cuff it
