    well that will depend on what you are using for bait, and the size of your bait. imo you cant go wrong with a good kahle size hook, and from the reports of other members circle hooks are also a very good choice. it seems that a hook in the range of an 8/0 is about what most use, but again that is something you will have to determine on your own, or give us some info on what bait you plan to use

    and let me welcome u to the BOC. you will love it here. wealth of knowledge on this sight. im sure a more knowledgable person will be able to give you better advice than mine
