Gonna get my ned on. What size hook

Recommended Posts

Going to take the plunge and start fishing the ned in deeper water while it's pretty hot, and continue using it as needed into the fall. I will be placing an order for some Gopher mushroom heads in the 3/32 variety for current conditions. What size hook do I want for the Z man TRDs? I'm thinking 1/0. What are you guys using?

#2 or #1. The small hook still sticks fish well and doesn't snag as much because of the smaller hook gap.

1/0 is WAY too big !! ... You want a #2 hook on the Gopher heads (as the largest) with TRD's  and I even do well on a #4 hook on the Gopher heads with the TRD's .

I refused to believe that the #4-6 hooks would hold a larger fish until I tried them.  Now the only reason I go larger is to 1: Reduce bycatch of tiny panfish that swarm the lure and 2: Need to make the rig weedless.
