Well it depends. When I need a stealth rig I go with a small unringed J hook. When I need to fish a long soaked bait I typically want a ringed circle hook. When it goes wide open I reach for the cheapest rusty musted I own. Sitonmyface i.e, Jake do you work on the Big Game 90?
san diego knot and a mustad 2/0. fish are bait shy, not hook shy...there's always been new hooks...remember when red hooks were cool? If the bait is lame, that's another story though. i stay clear away from owner ringed flyliners...barbs are too small, easy to lose fish
