    The ones I use have smaller hooks probably size 8 or 10 , but the bigger hooks will probably catch bigger skippies. Fish enough weight on the end of it to get a cast to where you want to fish. I have used 1oz. on the sabiki before to be able to cast to where the fish were. Hope this helps. Good luck with the bait catching.

    I use #10 and #12 with 10# line and a 1/2 oz weight or even a 1/4 oz crappie jig. I haven't fished for herring with them yet, but they work great for crappie, bream and white perch for bait.

    all depends on what size skips your wanting....obviously with a huge sabiki its tough to catch the little ones, and the big skips wont chase the small sabiki as much as they dont see it as much of a meal. however if ur just trying to catch some skips...go with the smaller one because a ton of little ones with only a few big ones is better than just a few big ones
