    The weight will depend on how deep your wanting to fish and if there's much wind. If your fishing where there's not much wind I'd go with a 1/4 oz. but if theres alot of wind you might want to go up to a half or 3/4 oz. For a hook I use a No.5 or 6 size worm hook made by Gamagatizu (spellin on that might not be right)in there superline series. Good luck fishin.

      I usually use a 1/8 oz bullet weight depending on how much cover there is........ If there is a lot of cover you may want to up the weight size........ If are bass fishing in hydrilla I suggest you put on a 1 oz weight. This will bust through the mat of and put the rig in the bass’ face...... As far as a hook I use a Gamakatsu fishing offset shank, hook size 3 or 4........ Offset shanks are better when using plastics, with the bend in the shank your plastic will not be crooked and will sit on the hook perfectly.........

          A STRAIGHT WIRE HOOK IS A MUST. A offset just won't do.
