Dave,
I think that we've discussed the offset hook causing mortality on circle hooks. To recap for Dutchman, when bait fishing on circle hooks an offset point can cut the fish's gullet when the hook is pulled from the stomach and set in the jaw. From my memory I don't think we've ever discussed the mortality or or the hooking effectiveness of offset J hooks.

I could be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time my memory was bad.
