Flipping or hybrid and size? 3/0,4/0,5/

 

I'm guessing with the screw lock a hybrid or ewg hook isn't needed? Any other hook recommendations are appreciated

I love that head and fish the heck out of them.

For Rage Craws & Rage Bugs in lighter cover situations, I use a standard 4/0 Gamakatsu EWG.

For heavier cover deals, I really like the 4/0 Owner Wide Gap Plus EWG.

Both of the above recommendations are for NO SKIRT rigs.

 For a Skirted rig I use the 4/0 VMC X Long Wide Gap Hook - extra throat length accommodates the space for the skirt between the head and the hook bend.

Hope that helps.
