I noticed several issues (besides production issues ):

1. 3/0 Eagleclaw hooks. Seems that anything smaller than 3/0 probably wouldn't have an eye large enough to fit your rig, because you double up the line with that design. I agree that tying into a double line helps hold the hooks away from the main axis. Can you address 3/0 hooks versus 2/0 or 1/0. Whiting and smaller pomps might be missed with 3/0.

2. Fishbites. Interesting that you mentioned only tying rigs without corks now. Did you mean you seldom use peeled shrimp or "fleas" these days? Or did you mean you're just tying these as examples for Fishbites.

3. Fishbites addendum. Do you use all flavors? I've only used pink-colored shrimp and orange-colored flea colors.

4. Swivel for sinker. I simply double my line into a loop for the sinker. Does the swivel have a function besides simplicity for sinkers? They don't seem to ever spin as baits do.

Thanks again.

Been using 3/0 octopus circle hooks for many years, not too big even for juvenile pomps. Catch whiting,trash and smaller fish, probably lose a lot of small fish but then again I don't have take them off and throw back. Had a guy come up to me early one morning asked how I was doing, I said nothing yet, he said I see what your problem is, you are using too big of hook. I didn't tell him that I had limited for 3 days in a row before that day.

Dang, I would've thought 3/0 was way too big.
I'm not sure of the size I'm using but it's not even a 2/0.

Most pompano fishermen feel that a 3/0 is too big. A lot of the old school guys are quick to tell you that a 3/0 is to big ! How I came to use 3/0 hooks . After years of having minimum success at pompano fishing I met a fella that was a hard core pompano guy. Pompano was really the only fish that he pursued and he was damn good at it . I eventually got him to show me everything that he did and what he used. He used light wire 3/0 hooks ,and swore by them. So I tried them and have used them ever since. Most of my pomp fishing friends that have fished with me , now use 3/0 hooks as well. But big or small they all catch pompano. It's just a matter of what works best for you. My personal feeling about them is that with the wider gap I have fewer misses when they hit and fewer get off because I have a bigger bite on them with the larger hook. Also they don't seem to pass over my bait due to the larger hook. So it's a winner with me.

Well, I've rigged up with 2/0 on top and 3/0 (as you described) on bottom for this coming trip. See if it matters for me.

Sometimes, king, I think you're just trolling us! Chicken livers?

The chicken livers were just a special recommendation for MrFish to use. I try to shoot straight with the rest of y'all. Lol

I tried them and caught a load of permit along with 2 bonefish at Alabama point. No lie! They work! Give them a shot!
