Just curious...in your experience, which hook seems to work best in the surf for whiting, pomps, etc? I started out using #4 Kahle hooks and have had a good bit of luck with 'em. I'm wondering what other folks use...I normally use a 9 ft ultralight rod spooled with 8 lb line and a single hook carolina rig with a 1/2 to 1 oz flat lead weight depending on the wave action. I don't like the multi-hook rigs for the simple reason that I don't want a loose hook flopping around when I'm unhooking a fish. I've tried both pink shrimp fishbites and dead shrimp, having about the same results on both. If anyone uses something different, I'd like to hear what you think...
