So many hook styles out there. Below is a quick video which helps simplify the hook selection process for soft plastics (when heavier rods and line).

Good fishing!

Excellent! I'd like to see more of this, James. So often, the issue of matching a hook to a lure just isn't discussed.

One example is the Yamamoto Fat Ika, a great plastic lure with a very fat and very heavy plastic. What to use, what to use. Its body is relatively stubby then the tentacles, of course, so if you select a larger hook to leave some "bite room" for the fish to press down on, too large a hook might exceed the length of the body.

This is one of many examples where more information would be helpful.
