    I kind of felt sorry for the guy after his blood pressure became critical from his last encounter with Den007, so I through him a bone!

  5. lol
    Yea I am a Gamakatsu hook guy.
    In fact if I were to put a hook in it would be a Gamakatsu circle hook.
    I love circle hooks and only use other hooks for trout and pike.
    Cant beat the good hold and it does less damage to the fish if I choose to release.

    Still leaning towards no hook, I am thinking you get the Idea as is. Plus its done and I don't want to fiddle anymore. lol not that that has ever stopped me in the past.

    Hey Rick Krane...thanks for the mention. That's cool that you were in the area and got to stop in at Orleans Outdoor; Ron B. is a real decent guy.
