I quit bait fishing about 25 years ago. Back then you just chose a size of J hook you wanted to use. I want to probe the deeper waters here in the Rockport/Corpus area this winter with natural baits. Probably mostly dead shrimp/mullet. A trip to the supply store showed me about 200 trillion different styles o f hooks now days. In the past you used a 1 to a 2/0 for size. The proliferation of different hooks brought me here to find out what style and size is preferred these days for table fare sized fishes. My guess was that it would be mostly bottom feeders as my target in this area. Please bring me up to date on preferred hooks for natural baits.
