Best hook to use for texas rigging 10 inch worms?
When fishing 10" worms like Zoom Ole Monsters or Berkley Power worms Texas Style what hook are you using?
I have tried using EWG hooks and have found they do not give me the best hookset and I loose a lot of fish. Gamakatsu 5/0 offset worm hooks are not strong enough to haul a heavy fish out of cover. Tried 5/0 Gamakatsu round bend hooks last year in Florida and it worked the best of any I have tried with Zoom worms, but is too small with the big Berkley 10" worms. Found some Owner 7/0 oversize worm hooks and they tore up the plastic and did not give the best of hook sets. Was told to try some of the 6/0 VMC round bend hooks that Ike uses. Thought before spending more money I would ask here and see what others are using?
