DS Hooks&weights
« on: August 14, 2011, 10:18:46 PM »

Hello all,

I was wondering what kind of hooks you guys prefer when Dshotting  chunkier 4" baits like Goby's or Slammer's ect.

I pretty much use Gammy 1 and 1/0 for all other baits with good success and I noticed gammy also makes a wide gap fineese hook will thhis work ok if so any size recomendations?

Also does anyone prefer black tungsten weights over the shiny silver color?
I prefer the black color but the only company I know that makes them is xcal and I really don't like them.

I use Owner mosquito hooks.   Sizes 2,1, & 1/0 for my drop shot needs. 

For weights, I get mine from Mark Hill.  When the lead gets a little older it loses its shine. 

I've never found the shine to be detrimental at all.

So much water.  So many lures.  So little time.
