Tim, what I need is for Carey to mark his trees at the dam with bright orange markers that float so that I can find them when I'm in my tube.  icon_lol

Fished a new place this past weekend. A small neighborhood pond recently stocked with trout. Only caught one but still good to get out and wet a line on a warmer than usual; Saturday.

Thanks fellas. The link is helpful, getting a hook that rusts out quick is a good idea. I will look for a non offset hook this time.

Ultimately the best "catch and release" hook would be a barbless circle hook that is not offset. The non-offset would make it more likely than an offset hook to be pulled out of the fishes esophagus if it ever made it down there. As it is also barbless it would be trickier and require a little more focus and skill to land a fish.

Since your post is specific to "gut hooking" being the problem, perhaps you only need to try a non offset circle hook which should reduce the probability of gut-hooking. These are why they are often a requirement for fishing tournaments where they hope to release the fish in good shape.

Have you tried vertical jigging in 22-28' of water?  Granted, it would have to be a relatively calm day for a tube.
We have been catching some there with minners.  icon_mrgreen

We use gamakatsu series 208 offset circle hooks in size 6/0 or 8/0. The 6/0 will catch those pesky itty bitty kitties and will hold 60 pound fish easily. Never had one gut hooked with either. You can get them at Barlows.

Thank you. I will go to Academy soon and get those hooks.

Sounds like you are catching some nice ones.
