Hi

I have heard lots of differing advcie on jighead hook size for soft baits.

Obviously it will depend on bait size so lets here is what i use currently:

5 inch jerk shad  - 3/0

4inch minnow or swimming mullet - 1/0 or 2/0

7inch jerk shad - 5/0


Please let me know if you think i have any of this wrong.

Cheers

I use 3/0 jig heads for the swimming mullets but they are way to big and the hook exits by the tail. I have just got some 1/0 jig heads and think they will be the biz. 4/0 worm hooks for 5 inch jerk shads. I havnt used any 7 inch baits yet they look too big to me.
