    I am wanting to build some trotlines and I am up in the air on what style and size of hook to use. I use to build them a long time ago but the hook choices then were not as vast as they are now. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance....The Whiskerhunter

    If you were a sucessful trotliner I would make them the same as then. Fish ain't that smart.
    What you were using will still work. Then if you want to experiment try a few circle hooks or one of the others.
    Same goes for bait.
    best of luck
