    Default Hook size

    I’ve read everything I can think to read on here but can’t find much reference to hook size. On average what hook size do you guys use?

    size 2 on 1/8
    size 4 or 6 on 1/16 and 1/32
    size 6 on 1/64

    I am fishing vertically from 25’ and deeper. I am using 1/4 heads to get the bait down and keep it there. Would you recommend a #2 hook on them or larger?

    I fish #2 most of the time with 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4. Sometimes I pour #1 Or even 1/0 hooks for folks. Just #2 is my universal size. I am talking for pan fishing. Up here we are walleye fishing and use 3/0 on 1 oz and 3/4oz. Then 2/0 on 5/8 and 1/2.

    I fish 1/4 oz most of the time and use #1 for 2 to 2 1/2" bait and a 2/0 for 3" and 4" baits for crappie. Usually put as big a hook in it that the mold will hold.

    I believe it depends on the average size crappie one has in there area. I personally use #2 for 1/32, 1/16,1/8 jigs

    Wow I never would have imagined a 2/0 hook for crappie. I bet you don’t have very many shorts.
