Hook Sizes And Bigger bait for bigger fish?

Recommended Posts

I'm wandering does hook size, and bait size matter for bigger fish? I was only fishing for catfish, cause up until 2 weeks ago. I never could catch a bass. SO now at age 25 I caught my first bass, while catfishing with chicken liver on a tri hook. So now I've become hooked on bass fishing.  Bass just always seemed like alot of trouble till I found a great spot.

Not sure what the deal is, but everytime i cast out Stripers were tearing it up, I cant even reach in my pocket without getting a bite. Biggest I caught out of the 12 was around 11 to 12 inches.  Now i read around, and hear stories of people catching these monsters from anywhere from 15 to 63 pounds in my lake.  

My question is how big of hooks are the using for these fish with the softball size mouths, and bait? Seems larger bait would equal a larger fish right?  ;)

You really need to read the beginners section and get a general idea of what you need to know about bass then start asking your questions.

    You are correct, bigger bait will improve your chances of getting a bigger fish.  My favorite bigger fish bait is Zoom 10" worm.  I use a Owner 7/0 Offset Shank hook.

    Even though it is big fish bait don't be surprised if you also catch a few small ones.

Big bass will bite little baits so concentrate on location and timing instead of theory and technique ;)
