Re: hook size
For just about everthing I do I use 5/0 or 6/0 for big chunk. Any bigger and they may spit it sensing the hook and smaller you might not expose the point which I always do. Tied to a fluro leader as long as the fish your going to catch (don't get to carried away here ;-) and barrel swivel tied to your main line unless your 3 waying it or whatever else there is. Fishing hot so get the hell out there. Wish I didn't live 2 hours awawy or I'd be drifting some eels right now.
