A circle hook is a fishing hook manufactured so that the point is turned perpendicularly back to the hook shank to form a generally circular, or oval shape
Various studies have shown that circle hooks mouth-hook a greater proportion of fish than typical “J” pattern hooks
Circle hooks have been shown to increase the survival of angler released fish. With their success already proven for many game fish species, these hooks are now used increasingly for many other common recreational species including bream, flathead and kingfish.
Many studies have shown that one of the most influential factors affecting the survival of fish released by anglers relates to where the fish was hooked. Specifically, survival has been shown to be greatly reduced for fish that are deeply hooked in the throat or beyond.
Benefits of circle hooks
Reduced deep hooking – improved survival of released fish and decreased loss of fishing tackle.
Improved hook-up and landing rates for many species.
The strike time is not as crucial for hook-up of fish.
Lighter leaders/traces can be used as the line is generally away from abrasive mouth surfaces.
Circle hooks bring about many benefits for anglers, but they do require a few minor changes to your normal fishing techniques.
