Just seeing what hook size and does the time of the year make any difference on hook size?

#4 or #6 will work well for punch bait.

I use #6 trebles but sometimes go to a #8 if the get finicky. You use less bait and catch more fish.

Thanks what I deal with are early spring fish that are larger in size but they bite lite.After the spawn and hot weather sets in then it's like nothing but peckers, eater fish and they do just that peck I have been using a #6 but thought about droping down to a #8 . Thanks

I don't have much problem with them getting the bait deep with #8's. If my customers are missing them on #6's then I know to switch. Normally they are hooked in the top or side of the mouth just as they are with the 6's.
