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.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942
