Keep in mind that sickle hooks are a little larger than say Eagle Claw.

I use #2 on my 1/8 oz jigs and #4 on my 1/32,1/24 and 1/16oz jigs.

I would go with a #4 on the 1/16 the gap is larger then a regular hook

That would be about right in Mn, but down here where the biguns grow, I like a # 2.

Go with the bigger hooks for grubs and the smaller ones for tying hair jigs.

A #4 sickle hook will hold any size fish you hook.They're a very sharp hook so they penetrate deeper than regular hooks on a good hookset. I've caught walleyes, bass, catfish, pike, and every panfish in the lake with them.
