Choosing Your Ideal Size

Make sure to consider the size of your bait when you choose your hook size. You want your hook to be large enough that it can hold your bait and hook your fish. If you're using live bait, smaller hooks will be easier to disguise than larger hooks.
Choosing the Color of Your Fishing Hook
Most of the fishing hooks at Public Lands are clear, making them perfect for general fishing uses. If you're fishing with live bait, black hooks may be beneficial. Yellow hooks are helpful for catching small trout, and red hooks are ideal for use with worm lures.
