I disagree, been using circle hooks for over 10 years, both for chunking as well as live lining.
I use 7/0 Daiichi Circle hooks, large chunk of Mac, I pierce through the belly first, spin the hook around, then go through the top, as close as to the back bone as possible, then push the point out, if you don't push the point out, past the bark, your not going to hook up.
So your basically cradling the chunk inside the hook bend.
Let the fish grab it, and run with it, just pull back on the rod, a lot of times, when they run, they will hook themselves.
How are you doing it?
