    Hey Gary, I use 5/0 Eagle Claw J-style hooks, in just about every situation and they seem to work fine. I like the J hook for drifting because if you get a light bite or tap a lot of the time you will hook up. Just my 2 cents worth.

    i like the 5/0 also it is small enough to catch the smaller fish and strong enough to hold the bigguns----------i like a kahle hook because u dont have to jerk the line u just reel it up and load up ur rod
