Circle hooks?

Has anyone had success using circle hooks when trolling worms behind a lake clear wabbler? I have noticed the last few years after getting into the brook trout scene that many fish tend to swallow the worm and further get gut hooked. Moving to a larger size 6 baitholder has not worked. So I was thinking of moving to a circle hook in hopes of reducing gut hooking as myself and our club are all catch and release fisherman. We would like to see these fish thrive and unharmed. Has anyone tried them yet? I have had success with saltwater game fish like stripers so I can’t see why they wouldn’t help reduce mortality rates in native pond brookies. Thanks
