On several occasions when the smaller bluefin are biting bait, while using 25 and 30# leader with a small #4 non ringed Mutu I Would feel my bait get picked up And I slowly slide the lever forward Only to feel a little thud and no hookset. I am almost certain the Circle hook and bait is being pulled out of the fishes mouth. Some other guys who were doing really well were using small j hooks Fishing them like a circle and they didn’t lose any more or less than anyone else. I’ve given this some thought and the only thing I can think of is the circle hook wasn’t finding the corner of the mouth and just pulling out.. have any of you guys ever had this happen? And when fishing 25|30# leaders what hooks do you like and how long do you wait until you start sliding the lever forward?
