gear lists tell us to bring lots of J hooks and Circles.
When specifically, bait fishing, would one use a j hook vs a circle hook?
Sorry Jack, I missed your note. I tend to fish circles more myself when flylining bait. I'll shift to a J when targeting grouper. It's a subjective personal decision. Different folks approach things differently. Both style of hooks have their benefits, with circles being great when it comes to catch and release, or as a means to reduce line chaffing since the hook typically sets right in the corner of a fish's jaw.
