Havoc Pit Boss hook size??......

Recommended Posts

I'm gearing up for the spring and have a fair selection of the Pit Bosses. Normally, I'm using 4/0 or5/0 EWG Gami hooks with worms. What's the recommended size? I fish a shallow pond and go weightless......

I use 5/0 Trokar TK 130. 

A 4/0 will fit and work fine but for punching, which is the only time I'll use a Pit Boss, I want that extra room.

I use a 4/0 EWG for a regular T rig, 5/0 straight shank for flipping.

Try rigging them vertical for a nice change as a trailer. 

I screwed up and was thinking of the Devils Spear.  Sorry.

What @OnthePotomac said! For me, it seems as if I get more hits when using a craw-style bait so the “claws” are vertical as opposed to the normal horizontal method. (How many fish have a horizontally oriented caudal fin.) I do prefer at least a 5/0 hook though - to penetrate the extra plastic. Totally unscientific observation but I’ve had better luck with Pit Bosses, Chigger Craws, Craw Fatties, and VileCraws by rigging them this way as trailers. Might be worth a shot.

2/0-4/0 EWG or 4/0-5/0 straight shank hook. Hard to rig a Pit Boss wrong as they are very versatile.

If you're gonna do any flipping with a weight I'd throw a 4/0 straight shank otherwise weightless you could go 4/0 or 5/0 ewg

That's exactly what I do as well.

The pitboss is my favorite, I've caught too many 4+lb bass on them to count. Bonus: their CHEAP!! I use a 4/0 big nasty trokar or gammy superline...
