i no longer use a regular worm hook. EWG 3/0 to 6/0 depending on what i am throwing. deep hooked too many with a regular worm hook. i try to use as light a weight as i can get by with 1/8 - 3/16 and i dont peg it unless i am throwing it into heavy stuff then i will use heaviest weight i can find

Man I LOVE a "baby" T-rig on spinning gear, 3/16 or so bullet weight, small hook small lure. Sorry all these years I've been bass fishing I still don't know my hook sizes, I always buy according to the size of plastic I'm fishing and I eyeball it, sorry :lol:

I think I have every type of hook Owner makes and I use the hook that best fits the situation and the bait for best hook ups and I fish a T-Rig about 70% of the time I am on the water.  I tried a shakey head a couple times that snoot sent me back years ago but just cannot get a feel for it plus I think they probably work better on  spinning gear which I don't own any of.

I fish a Texas rig with a 3/0 gamakatsu and normally a 3/8 sinker. Haven't fished a shaky yet.

you should try some of my Stand-Up Shaky Head Jigs......i pour them with EWG Hooks....they are killer....

I love fishing a texas rig.  I pretty much only use EWG worm hooks 1/0 - 5/0, fishing small craw type baits up to larger worms.  I try and use as light of a bullet sinker as I can get away with, 1/8 or 3/16.  I have never even tried to peg a worm weight...but maybe I should give it a try sometime.

11/0 hook!!!! jeezus what are you fishing for?? i dont own a hook bigger than a 5/0 ewg & rarely use those. i normally use a 4/0 or 5/0 straight shank round bend hook depending on how big the bait is. i throw a 1/4 to 3/8oz tungston sinker. also love the shaky head. 3/16 or 1/4 oz.
