Can anyone give me any incite as to the best hook size for Carolina rigging a zoom ol monster 10.5" worm? I was on ray roberts Saturday and Sunday throwing it on a 5/0 wide gap offset gamagatsu and it was working well but I noticed I was hooking the fish way back in their mouths nearly poking their eyes out from the inside out. Fish were only 10" though so not sure if downsizing to like a 3/0 would hurt my chances if big nasty girl comes along in the double digits looking for a big red bug worm or if a smaller 3/0 would still get her in the boat. Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated.

Being out on the boat is my counseling and it's worth every second and every penny.
