So I just got back from a long hiatus from Alaska. Circle hooks were just catching on for halibut when I left. Now it seem they are the ticket for reds. I haven't read through the threads to see if it has been addressed but have read the posts on them briefly. What about kings? That's what I'll be targeting shortly. Needing to buy all new gear would the change be worth it? We'll be doing catch and release only. Would that make a difference in hooks you use? Again my apologies if this has been covered before but I'm headed out shortly and need to go buy my gear. If I'm not keeping then but want a better chance of landing them is it worth the harm it might do to them?
