    I am looking at buying some sabiki rigs for catching bait, but my state regulations say I have to use hooks smaller than a #6.

    As the number increases the size decreases, correct?

    Does this rule apply to saltwater hooks too?

    I have never really paid any attention to the numbers on hooks, and just got the ones that where the right size for what I needed, but since they specify a specific size, well I don't want to be breaking any laws or anything.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Bigger number = smaller hook unless you're looking at the "/0" sizes -- 3/0 is smaller than 4/0 but 8 is smaller than 6.
