For catfish I like to usetreble hooks. I have tried all, but sometimes they bite so light than you can hardly tell. But like on another post, by the time you have a bite they have already taken off with your bait and your here it but react to slow. with a treble hook you get three times the chances. Just my opinion.

Number 1 or 2 circle hooks work good on cut bait
