It all comes down to the SIZE of the lure you’re fishing and how that matches up to the jighead SIZE.
This is extremely important.
If you use a jighead that is too big with a small lure, the action of the lure will totally be off.
The presentation won’t be as effective.
This is an easy way to reduce the amount of strikes you get.
Just the opposite applies as well to small jigheads on larger lures.
If you use too small of a hook on large baits, a fish might strike the lure but won’t bite the hook because its too far up near the head of the lure.
Fish typically strike lures from behind, underneath, or the side.
A general rule of thumb to follow is base your hook choice off the number of the hook.
So, 2/0 hooks are typically ideal for 2-3 inch baits.
3/0 hooks match well with 3-4 inch baits and 4/0 or 5/0 hooks pair with 4-5 inch baits and so on.
Now, keep in mind the size of the hook will vary from brand to brand.
If the hook point goes anywhere past halfway on the soft plastic, it is likely too big and you need to change that out.
On the flip side, if the hook doesn’t go past more than a third of the body, then it is too small.
