i know you should closely match the hook diameter to the thickness of the line you are using, right? because too thin a line and too thick a hook, you can easily break the line or knot. and vise-versa you can straighten or unbend the hook.

 

my question is, i use 6 or 8lb (i dont remember) silverline co-polymer line on my 6'6ft medium light spinning rod. with a shimano sahara 2500 reel.

 

i like to use finesse worms and senkos, drop shotting and no hooking wacky rig etc etc.. what hooks are o.k. to use with such thin line?

 

i have 1 o/t offset worm hooks, and size 2, 4 and 6 octopus and baitholder hooks... are these okay? or is there a super thin wire hook for such line?

I use silver thread 6# on my spinning set up with a 1/0 owner wacky hook for wacky senkos and it has worked great for a long time.

they have what is called light wire hooks that will help you get better penetration easier. I've used heavy gauge hooks on 10 pound yozuri and never had an issue. it's more about presentation than anything

I've used #3 True Turn Hooks for Texas rigging for years. Often with 20 mono and a heavy rod. Never had one open up.
