Rated 5 out of 5 by M0H0 Great Hook ! I use these for fishing whole squid for Striped Bass in sizes of 5/0 and 6/0. I've have an amazing 100 % hookup percentage although I've only used them for a couple of months. Can't wait to try them for livelining Mackerel. October 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by trophylad Best Wacky Hooks Sticky sharp and the best hooks for wacky worming. They turn and set good and you will rarely loose a hooked fish - I have lost a few while jumping, but I consider that my fault. 2/0 for a 4"senko, and 3/0 for a 5" works well. If you don't have them already, you need some Gammy's. July 17, 2012

A:i would go with an ewg hook in super line, in 5/0. frogs get in some nasty places, so you want a strong hook to pull them out. the finesse might be too light.

A:depends on the size worm, but I typically go with a 4/0
A:I use the number 2 and 3 sizes... Mostly the number 2 size Gamakatsu Finesse Wide Gap (Red)
A:i use the bigger sizes. if you don't feel the bite right away or its a smaller fish they can get gut hooked pretty easy. i learned this the hard way and went through a whole pack of hooks in one day. with the bigger hooks i don't think its happened once. i even use wide gaps in smaller sizes but they aren't as weedless.
Details:I have used the worm hooks previously but would like to try the Wide Gap Hook. Many thanks from a novice.

A:Use a Gammy EWG hook and thread it texas, make sure the top on the hook is paralell to the back of the lure, then skin hook it lightly to make it weedless.
You can google it on the internet for texas rigging and they will show you diagrams of how to do it.
