I have been reading about the kind of hooks that should be used for catching stripped Bass and all the parts of the terminal tackle for that matter. I have a couple of questions that some of you may be able to help me answer. For Instance, I see people using diferent size hooks for catching stripped Bass but the book says that I should use the smallest thinest possible hook I am not shure is it recomends a particular size at this point but I would like to know what would you guys say is the most popular size hook for stripped Bass rigs? What brand, Gamakatsu, Eagle Claw? I used to use a 60lb leader, just went down to a 50lb leader, should I use a thinner leader? 40lb, 30lb? Even though I've seen different lengths in leaders I feel comfortable with a 36 to 44 inch leader. I am currently using a 50lb test braided Power line on my 675 International but will change it to a 15 to 17 pound test Andee within the next couple of days. I used the braided line on my spinning outfit and later decided to tested on the casting outfit on account that the power line had no stretch. Now I want to get back to the monofilament for sport.
