Some people run circle hooks and lock thier eels down and wait for the fish to set the hook itself. Most people run glosticks on their rod tips to see any and all movement.
Others run clickers, in which a reel produces a clicking sound when a fish pulls out line when the reel is disengaged. All other hooks apply here....j hooks, kahle, etc... some run circles if they have patience.
When i first sarted fishing i didnt have a reel with a bait clicker so i crimped a piece of styrofoam onto my line so that when line was taken, the styrofoam moved with it. We fished under lights, or used a lantern. Much has changed since those times.

Thank you for the response. My reason for asking is I am working on a new technology that could possibly help when trolling, bank fishing or fishing at night. I will be able to tell you more about it in around 4 to 6 weeks from now.

I recently went to walmart and got a solar powered light....i think they are used to light up walkways or something...for my boat. I usually angle it down toward the bottom of the boat or turn it offin until i need it. The light works great for lighting up the cutting board or bait station. We have even used it to light up our net to land fish. Well worth the 10 bucks....and i never need to buy headlamp batteries. It will run all night too.
I might add a piece of red plastic to the lense later so i can keep my night eyes.

I wanna hear about this invention to miss less fish? although i am skeptical as I like the way I currently catch catfish, in my opinion the circle hook is the best invention when used proper to miss less fish......
