baie dankie so jou hooflyn is 0.65 en jy knoop hom direk aan trace, geen dikker leaders nie? Vang jy partymaal net vir krakers en dan gebruik jy 'n groter hoek of gebruik jy maar altyd die 4/0 hoeke?

Sparra hoe groot is julle ase as julle 4/0 hoeke gebruik? Ek hoor altyd Galjoene het klein bekke en mens moet lang, dun asies maak.
Baie ouens wat ek ken neig na kleiner hoekies (no1 en kleiner). Ek hou nie van die heel klein hoekies nie, het dit vir 'n paar maande probeer, maar gevoel ek verloor baie visse. Gebruik nou 1/0 en 2/0 Mustad Baitholders, en doen die seisoen beter.

Awesome but definitely an exception and not the rule!

Smaller hooks = more fish but better chance of losing the bigger fish.
Larger hooks = less fish but better chance of landing the bigger ones.
Especially with soft mouthed fish like gallies.

I'm not using a 9/0 any time soon to target galjoen!

It suggests that you should not worry about a hook half the size of a 9/0 since it was do-able on a 9/0.
An addition to your list of options above would be to use a small strong hook, thus getting more fish with the smaller size and a better chance of landing the bigger ones since its exceptionally strong.
I think a 1/0 or 2/0 big gun would get you the best of both worlds.::tight:

I agree with that hook size. Smaller hooks (<1/0) tend to rip out or not hook into the fleshy mouths of the bigger gallies, irrespective of strength.

Dalk moet ek die naweek ook die 4/0'e probeer....

Daarby gesê, verskillende hoek brands se groottes verskil. Ek het al no2 hoeke gesien van een handelsmerk wat groter is as 'n 2/0 van 'n ander. As ek reg onthou is daai Sensation Supergun's aan die kleiner kant. Ek hou ook van die Sensation hoeke (ook die prys), maar kry hulle nêrens in die hande nie. :?

Baie ouens hier rond glo ook aan 'n klein pil dobbertjie naby die hoek as hulle galjoen vang. Ek self is nog nie oortuig dit is beter as geen dobbertjie nie, maar dit jaag nie die galjoene weg nie.
