it takes alittle bit of learning, but a week in isla mujeras or los suenos can teach you alot... after the fish is hooked you dont have to hold your breath everytime he comes surface bound... i think most will adjust just fine. and also we know as fishermen were doing as much as we can without completley stopping to ensure a healthy stock

I do. Have you ever seen a billfish come to the boat gut hooked, hooked out and around the gills, or hooked in the head?

Its kind of depressing seeing a fish like that come up dead. Especially a smaller non-qualifying fish.

Heck, if i could figure out how to get the circle farther back in the bait i would use them for everything. Circles in my opinion work a lot better then J's anyway.
