Whichever is on sale at the time. I don't think it makes much difference this time of year.

I use a #2 or #1 in 1/8 oz jigs. If your plastic body has any size, the amount of exposed hook needs to be significant so you don't have so many fish shaking loose. Not a fan of small hooks.

Good Point Ken. I have had to open the gap a bit using certain plastics, but I like the smaller hook for brush
