    What is the best hook to use for punch bait when catching those eater size chanel & blues? Most of the catfish that I take will be about 1 to 2 LB. Thanks

    If your useing Trebles I would go with a #4 or #2 if your useing any other hook you will need something to help hold the bait I take a half inch of looper material from my rigs and thread it on the hook then punch it in and pull it out at a 45 degree angle it works on circle, j"s, or kahles.

    Go with the #4 treble hook i like the ones with the spring on them it holds bait pretty good i think.

    I use a #4 with my punch bait. Sometimes I wrap it a few times with string to secure the bait better:wink:
