Thumbs down Tried in Erie

I tried this in Erie at 12mile last fall and had bad luck. Lost about 6 fish very quickly. Switched to Standard salmon hooks and hooked a bunch and landed three.

My thought is that circle hooks work best for prey that is really active about taking the fly- tunas, stripers, blues.

Just my 2 schekels-
