There are a number of green sunfish in the river I like to fish, and greens aren't shy. They basically just eat your entire bait. Yesterday, one big green was bleeding profusely from the gills after someone pulled it in, and I had to kill another one because it swallowed a hook and some idiot decided to get the hook out of its stomach. Poor thing was barely moving, bleeding all over the place, and smelled like fish guts.
I've heard that circle hooks can help prevent this sort of thing by hooking the fish in the side of the mouth. Problem is, I can only find bass-sized ones. Where can I get itty-bitty circle hooks, or at least small-sunfish-sized ones? I'd prefer if they have eyes, especially if they're small, but I can snell larger hooks.
