Default 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?

I use my 5/0 Stick'r flippin' hook on big baits Baron and the hook point angle doesn't miss. The Stick'r has more than proven itself durable flippin' pig fish in Texas.

This is what I use. 5/0 for 10" worms and a 7/0 for big 7"-8" senko's and the large Fluke's I put the hook completley through the worm were the stright part of the point end just lays on the worm then just skin hook the point into the plastic. Havent missed or lost many fish with this.

I would go with the Moaners Baron, he is an advertiser and all his products have been given high marks.

5/0 ewg gammy's on anything over 7" and up to 14". never had a problem getting them out of anything unless you rip too big of a hole in their lip. works for me. my usual worm is a BPS twister tail 14" or manns 14" jelly worm.
