Hook Size? 8" Lizard

Recommended Posts

I picked up a package of Zoom 8" Lizards, I'm thinking I should go with a 5/0 EWG for this bait. What say you?

Even up to the 10" ones they are pretty thin. Anything 3/0 and up in the EWG world should work.

I use a 4/0 with no issues.

As long as the gape is twice the size of the thickness of the bait it will work  .Bigger hooks are ok but I dont go much bigger . I dont even know what size I'm using half the time , I just measure them up then tie it on .

I started cutting a small hook slot in my thicker soft plastics like some swimbaits. It has increased my hook up % and baits seem to last a little longer.

I fished this bait for a couple of days last weekend. I ended up settling on a 4/0 EWG Gammy. The 5/0 looked like a beast on it and the 3/0 just looked a tad small to me. The 4/0 seemed to hit the sweet spot with this particular bait.
