Hi Guys,

I heard that if we are fishing slower current we should be fishing rigs with shorter hook traces, while fishing faster current we should be fishing rigs with longer hook traces for a more natural presentation. Is there any truth to this, or is this just a fisherman's tale?

While fishing circle hooks, when do we know if the fish has been properly hooked in the mouth before reeling? I have been missing a few hook-ups lately, and i suspect that the fish just swam away with the bait in the mouth, not eating the fish, so when i started reeling, the hook just popped out from its mouth. I could feel the pressure from the fish, and when i looked at my bait, half of it was gone and the hook made a small tear sideways on where it was hooked onto the bait.

For a paternoster rig, it will be the length a branch of the rig, since a paternoster rig can have many branches.
