Team Catfish 8/0 double action. Catches big cats as well as eaters, a 1.5 to 2 pound cat has no trouble getting a 8/0 hook in their mouth.

I just wanted to confirm because I was told get 4/0 or 5/0 circle hooks.

As far as depths...what are the best depths to make them 10 to 15 ft deep.

Depends on your bait really. If you plan on hooking some live perch, go big. When you see an 8/0 circle hook in the side of the mouth of a 70 lbs flathead, it looks tiny, lol. An 8/0 hook doesnt have any trouble hooking a small catfish, but a small hook may have trouble with a very large catfish.

For free floating jugs I set mine at 8ft. I also use 7/0 circle hooks.
