I rarely go below 3 for bass and if you're Texas rigging it then that's what I use
If wacky or just going through the nose I'd go bigger
May be just me but I have bad luck with setting small hooks
The difference between hook sizes, I can tell you.hooks
Basically 1 hooks are smaller then 1/0 (pronounced one ought.)
Hook sizes go like this, A hgih number (without the /0) is the smallest. I think a size twenty eight is the smallest. As the numbers get smaller, the hooks get larger. A size 14 hook is bigger then a 28 but smaller then a 10. Then, with 1 being the hook without an /0 it goes to 1/0 and then proceeds normally with hook sizes corresponding to number sizes. So a 1/0 hook is bigger then a 1 hook but smaller then a 2/0 hook.
Easiest way to think of it is think of hooks without the /0 as being negative numbers and hooks with /0 being positive numbers, if that makes sense.
(there is no hook size 0
I use only the #4 and #5's. But admittedly we use large baits on Okeechobee.
#3 -- No, a #3 is a baitholder hook. Are you confusing your numbers?
