Owner Mosquito hooks. Size 1 for smaller baits and 1/0 for larger baits. Love the Mosquitos and hook up ratio is virtually 100%. Fish hook themselves and often the hook penetrates twice. I will go to a 1/0 Roboworm Rebarb hook for t-rig dropshot.

For using in timber, around grass or other places you are more likely to hang up...still a dropshot rig but the hook point is not exposed. You rig it like a texas rig worm. Usually nose hook (point exposed) in open areas where there is less of a chance of hanging up.

Owner rigging hook size 1, and I Txpose the worm since I fish it around a lot of timber. The Owner rigging hook is a strong, sharp small hook that works very well.
