cut bait is best used for circles, you just got to hook it right, then ill bet you a catfish you will like cut bait and circle hooks.

talking cats i would stay away from the trebles unless i really wanted to keep them all i all ways seam to have a heck of a time unhooking them.

when it comes to trout fishing with salmon eggs i use the smallest salmon egg hook i got unless im missing lots of bites then ill use a tiny treble like size 16-18 but i almost always use tiny trebles when power baiting but i only do that on put and take lakes as they usualy get hooked deep.drifting worms in streams i like a palin old size 10 bait holder maybe a little larger if use ing big crawlers whan actively drifting the worms i dont gut hook many fish

I try and use circle hooks anytime im fishing bait. Im mostly c&r so the the CH I have the best chance of the fish NOT swollowing the hook.
