I don't know if this will help you, but you can view a two page pamphlet produced for the recreational fishing community by my agency at

I would be interested in hearing more about why you say that circle hooks may not be a good alternative or worse in the end. My sense is that circle hooks are frequently found to be an improvement.

Hi everyone, im looking for some literature on implementation of circle 
hooks and estimates on mitigation of bycatch, as it seems they might not 
be such a good alternative or even being worst at the end.

Thanks in advance.
