Hi guys, i would like to know when fishing for bream with circle hooks using a baitfeeder reel do i have the reel in free spool when a fish takes the bait or with the drag on.
Kind regards jbel

I would have the drag engaged.
The idea of the circle is that it pulls out of the fish's stomache and catches on the corner of the mouth.
I had had a grassy take one and swallow it when free spooling. The hook took it's gills out on the way out. Still caught it's mouth, but it was buggered.
