What Size Hook For Space Monkeys Or Smokin Roosters

Recommended Posts

I want to purchase screw-in swim bait hooks to use with these Rage baits.  My lake is very shallow so I will probably stick with 1/8 oz. hooks but I'm wondering what size hooks to get.  Can anyone who fishes these baits regularly let me know what you use 3/0, 4/0, 5/0?

3/0 for the monkeys, and 5/0 for the roosters.  The rooster on a swimbait hook is a dead ringer for a madtom, so if you're on a madtom/bullhead pattern, that is the ticket.  That deal usually coincides with prespawn and spawn timing.

Yep he hit the nail on the head.

I use a 4/O keel weighted hook for the roosters. The hook fits that bait perfectly.
