4 posts in this topic

Now I Have a question about hooks. Grabed the wrong box of hooks. Wanted to know if I should even use them. I was thinking of trolling with them. I dont know???

Looking for opinions.

IMO 5/0 is the smallest you'd want to go, 6/0 would be better. It might work for awhile with smaller hooks, but sooner or later you'll be really sorry you didn't upsize, and you'll think about it everyday for years.

what model are they?

I use Mustad 3/0 model M35656BR on the Weagle and Wabull...plenty of big fish caught on those baits.

If that is the model, I would not worry about them at all...depending on what bait you put them on obviously

More information is needed. What bait(s) are you looking to use them on? I've caught some decent sized muskies on bass/walleye baits that have much smaller hooks than you'll ever see on a musky lure. 3/0s could be just fine under the right circumstances. As Luke mentioned, the Weagle has 3/0 hooks on them and some monster fish are caught on Weagles. But I also have certain lures where I would never use anything smaller than 6/0.
