Good afternoon.

What is your favorite hook (size, syle, brand) with fishing live bait on a Carolina rig while inshore while targeting mostly flounder, trout, and red fish.

Been using an Eagle Claw L141G-1 live bait hook with some success but wanted to see if there are better options

Not an expert on this type of fishing -- have done it, but not with great success.

That said, I was taught a flounder rig is a carolina rig with about a 2/0 kahle hook. I have caught a few flounder with that setup, but again, I'm no expert.

I use similar rigs for catfishing, and have great luck with circle hooks. Anyone using a 1/0 or 2/0 circle hook for inshore carolina rigging?

Since u cant keep flounder... 2/0 mustad demon perfect circle hooks. Rarely a gut hook with these and a nice low profile.
