Default New to Plastics..

Hi all,

Have faithfully and successfully fished Stripers here in the Northeast on the tube-n-worm my entire life... When not on the tube, I chunked or used live eels.

This season I want to really give plastics a shot.... I'm wondering what size hook would you guys suggest when rigging a 9 inch Sluggo or Hogy...

I'm thinking 5/0 or maybe a 6/0 ??? does that sound right....

Also... when fishing plastics what are the advantages/disadvantages in choosing a large hook over a bit smaller one??

Thanks for any input!!!!
