Thick v thin. Guess wasn't made clear in first sorry.
If flipping heavy cover with 65lb braid with let's say a Rage Craw, you'd want a 4/0 thick flipping hook. A thin wire hook in that situation could easily get bent or not penetrate enough through the cover + a 3lbers mouth/upper jaw.
The same 3lb bass (that was in heavy cover in the above example) in open water fishing a finesse worm on a drop shot on 8lb test line, you would want a fine wire 1/0 or 2/0 octopus hook. On 8lb test and the reel/pull hook set with drop shot, you want a fine wire hook to pierce through the upper jaw--using a 4/0 thick wire hook in that situation, you would most likely either break the line or not get a good penetration into the jaw with the reel/pull hook set.
3lb bass on a crig with average amount of line out fishing a finesse worm--thin wire hook (probably a 2/0 offset roundbend)
3lb bass on a crig with average amount of line out fishing a thick craw tube--thick wire hook (probably a 4/0 superline hook)
So, the type of hook for each situation varies depending on multiple variables including:
rod strength and action
long casts or short casts
plastic width/thickness/hollow body plastic or not
appendages/no appendages and overall shape of the plastic
amount/density and type of cover you are fishing
type of hookset you use for that particular technique
what you have confidence in
In general, the less stretch the line, the shorter the cast, the thicker the plastic, the thicker the cover the more likely I'd use a thick guage wire hook.
For long, thin plastics with no appendages (regular worms), I prefer the shortest hook I can get away with (the shorter the hook, the more action the worm)
For bulky, wide/thick plastics, the thicker the hook I can get away with: I have more confidence with hook with lots of space between the hook point and shank (like a flipping hook)
If you want to simplify and use one type of hook for all situations, a decent hedge (might not be the best for all situations, but good enough) would be to use 1/0 to 6/0 superline hooks (needle-like point, put with thicker gauge)
