HOW TO USE Circle Hooks
Rooster Tails Awards Breakfast Meeting
This coming Friday, January 18th

Using bait is a great way to put fish into the boat when fishing for striped bass. Soaking bait works, but the biggest issue some anglers have is timing when to set the hook. They typically set the hook too soon, and end up ripping their bait off without hooking the fish.
Over the past several years, Jack has been doing a lot of experimentation with circle hooks.  A circle hook looks similar to a conventional J-shaped hook, but the point curls around and aims at the shank.  At first glance, it seems like you wouldn’t be able set the hook with these things.  You would be correct, and this is where circle hooks deviate from J-hooks.  With circle hooks, the hook is pulled into the corner of the fish’s mouth by reeling slowly.  Instead of swinging for the sky like one of those bass fishing shows, you slowly reel to set the hook. 
Attend this coming Friday, January 18th breakfast meeting and learn how to rig and use circle hooks and why you DO NOT SET THE HOOK!

RESERVATIONS ARE NOT NECESSARY, BUT ARRIVE EARLY FOR A GOOD SEAT TO HEAR THIS POPULAR STRIPED BASS EXPERT.  DOORS TO THE AUBURN ELKS LODGE OPEN AT 7:00 A.M.  A LIMITED NUMBER OF CIRCLE HOOKS WILL BE ON DISPLAY AND AVAILABLE TO ROOSTER TAIL MEMBERS (only).
