Thanks Guys! Think I have found an answer from an American Guy I talk to now and then who's been using them for years, He's a Pro fisherman over there and takes people out on trips, he uses Circles most of the time, he does a lot of reef fishing and because a lot of the fish are protected they have ...

Circle Hooks

Hi Folks! Because I like to catch and release I've switched to using Sakuma Circle hooks, so far everything I've caught has been lip hooked so I'm pleased on that front, but I can't seem to find the best way of Baiting them, I read somwhere that you just put the hook through once leaving the gape cl...

Crimpers

Hi all! I'm just about to start having a go at making my own rigs, I bought one of those cheap Red handled crimpers and did a couple of test with some 50lb main line, and to be honest I think the crimpers are c**p, can anyone recommend a decent set of crimpers that don't cost the Earth, I was advise...

Hi Mick, I don't know you and I've never met you, but in the few weeks I've been on this forum your advice and help has been great, so thanks for making me welcome, It's hard to know what to say to someone in your situation, it's one of those thing you have to deal with in your own way and in your o...

I find them really annoying, but only if the guy using them is catching more than me :D I really don't have a problem with them as dontcatchmuch says if you have dodgy eyes there a great help and perhaps some of those people would have to give up fishing without them, the thing that really bugs me i...

I was wondering?? if I spay and bit on a spud and use that will I catch ready made Fish and Chips??? Seriously though I get the bit about using oily baits because it's a natural smell, but WD40 isn't natural as far as I know it's petrolium based so can only think it's the oil in it that holds the ba...

Well firstly sorry for starting this thread, seems like it's been done before and caused a bit of a stir, when I first saw the video I thought it was some sort of joke, then I thought it was a WD40 pro-mo, I'm all for anything that helps me catch fish but WD40 seems wrong to me, anyway If this threa...

Wickfordian! an interesting post of your's, because the guy at the tackle shop where I bought my first kit a few weeks ago told me to use 40lb line straight through, and now I can sort of understand why, there are quite a few snags where I fish so it makes sense, after speaking to a few locals they ...

Thanks Folks couple of handy tips there, Redmouse your right! total novice here at Seafishing so I've still got a lot to learn, one thing that bothers me is I like to return the fish alive as I don't eat them, but a couple of them today were quite deep hooked and I had a bit of trouble unhooking the...

Thanks Simon! I must say I was amazed at the size of the hooks some were using today and how a little 6inch Whitting managed to get it in their mouth, being used to fining everything down in course fishing, my size 4 looked like a grappling hook compared to the size 20 I'm used to, seems like most t...
