What size hook should I be using?
What size hook should I be using?
To obtain more bites, it is best to scale down your hook size, but you need to retain some strength to land the fish. Below is our rough hook size guide.
<div style="text-align: center;"> <table style="width: 395px; height: 590px;" border="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;" colspan="3"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Putting Bait on the hook</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Bait</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Fish</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Hook Size</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Bloodworm</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Silver fish, gudgeon</td> <td style="text-align: left;">22-24</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Single/double pinkie</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Small silverfish</td> <td style="text-align: left;">20-22</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Single maggot</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Small silverfish</td> <td style="text-align: left;">20-22</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Double maggot</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Small silverfish</td> <td style="text-align: left;">16-18</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Bunch of maggots</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Medium silverfish</td> <td style="text-align: left;">16-14</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Bread punch</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Silvers + others</td> <td style="text-align: left;">16-14</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Small worm</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Medium/large silverfish</td> <td style="text-align: left;">16-14</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Corn</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Big silverfish or small carp</td> <td style="text-align: left;">16-14</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Double corn</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Bream, tench, carp</td> <td style="text-align: left;">14-12</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Paste</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Bream, tench, carp</td> <td style="text-align: left;">14-10</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Meat</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Barbel, carp, tench</td> <td style="text-align: left;">10-6</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Bread flake</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Roach</td> <td style="text-align: left;">16-14</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Bread flake</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Chub, carp, tench</td> <td style="text-align: left;">14-10</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Big worm</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Chub, barbel, carp, tench</td> <td style="text-align: left;">14-10</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">&nbsp;</td> <td style="text-align: left;">&nbsp;</td> <td style="text-align: left;">&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;" colspan="3"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Using a hair rig</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Single corn</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Tench, carp, bream</td> <td style="text-align: left;">16-14</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Double/triple corn</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Tench, carp, bream</td> <td style="text-align: left;">14-12</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Mini boilie</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Tench, carp, bream</td> <td style="text-align: left;">14-12</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Meat/bread punch</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Chub, barbel, carp, tench, bream</td> <td style="text-align: left;">14-12</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">10mm boilie/pellet</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Chub, barbel, carp, tench, bream</td> <td style="text-align: left;">12-10</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">15mm boilie/pellet/pepperami</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Carp, barbel</td> <td style="text-align: left;">10-8</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">20mm boilie/pellet/meat</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Carp, catfish, barbel</td> <td style="text-align: left;">8-4</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;">Deadbait/livebait</td> <td style="text-align: left;">Catfish</td> <td style="text-align: left;">1/0-10/0</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <br />If you disagree with any of these recomendations, get in touch via our <a href="http://facebook.com/carlandalex" target="_blank">Facebook</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/CarlandAlex">Twitter</a> or <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/HookedOnFishing000">YouTube</a><br /><br /></div>
