We use #2 (not 2/0) Owner ringed flyliner hooks and 25# mono. This is generally due to the small size of the bait, but last weekend the chovies we very large.What do most of you use for live bait Fishing? 2/0 hook?
I think its time to try something other than the Troll..
Listen to Mark. It's forged #6s for pinheads & 2/0 & up for big deens. 15-50 for the mono or fluoro leaders. Generally you go 20-25 mono & a #2 or #1 bait hook. Don't forget the big splitshot & rubber core sinkers.As was mentioned, it always depends on the size of the bait. You don't use a 4/0 on a 4 inch pinhead chovy, and you don't use a #4 on an 8 inch sardine.
