What type of brand or kind of swim bait hooks are good. I got a pack of Eagle Claw.

How do you match hook size w/ bait size. and what is a good line for swim bait flurocarbon , fireline.....

would they be effective on a 7'0 Rod

I want to add Swim Baits to my arcenal or fishing techniques.

I love them swimbaits. I'm partial to the Owner Round Type 1/8 jig which has a 2/0 hook in it. I just find that to be the proper wait when I'm throwing in rivers or even just working it in the local lakes/ponds early in the season. I've been using the swimbaits for the last few Spring Seasons and have done fairly well. I usually throw the 3" but am moving up to 4" this year for the pike or walleye.

I usually use a 6'6" medium action rod with 8 lb test.
