What hooks does everyone use for wacky rigging a 4 inch worm or senko


I spend most of my time fishing the rest I just waste

There are a bunch of good ones to use but this is about as good as it gets.

I'm sorry I guess I'm needing to know what size for a 4inch senko and what size for a 5 inch

Size #2 Owner works great. Not 2/0, but #2.

VMC Ike Approved Weedless Wacky Hook

My preferred wacky rig hook is this one. It gets the job done. Plain and simple. It's durable, sharp, and the weed guard actually prevents the hook from getting hung up, unlike some others. It's also cheaper than the others out there. 10/10.

Best wacky hook ever. A little weight to help with control when casting and adds wiggle to the fall. And the design keeps the fish hooked up.

The best wacky hooks are posted above

But if you are fishing smaller lakes/ponds where fish larger than 5lbs are extremely rare, the Eagle claw weedless baitholder worm is good, very affordable, and widely available at most Wmarts (I like the size 2/0 for wacky)

I use the Gamakatsu Finesse Wide Gap usually in a 1/0. I like them because they are pretty cheap and have yet to fail me. I never really enjoyed using the weedless versions but may give them a shot again at some point.

These are all I use unless in a pinch. Depending on the size of the plastic I've used 1/0 to 4/0 but generally 2/0 and 3/0. The weedguard is pretty soft, even flimsy!
