Re:Hook size question
I want the largest I can get away with while not killing the action. That's cuzz my intention is to get the hook point under some bone, rather than just grabbing flesh. For black tray and purple tray, herring fished whole or cut plug I use 7/0 Owner on my 2- hook setups. For bleu tray, I use the same on whole herring, but I fell to 5/0 for plug cut. I use 5/0 with Brads, 8/0 with large J's and 5/0 with the smaller ones. Coyotes get 5/0 or sometimes 3/0 if I want more movement.
