Exclamation Re: SW FLA rigs?

7/0 hooks are fine for redfish and black drum. If there are really big Black Drum around, say +40 pounds. Get big strong hooks, 10/0 octopus hooks or XX strong circles like Owner Super Mutu's, they would NOT be too big. Big Black Drum have powerful jaws and break hooks all the time.



Pompano using shrimp, depends on the size of the shrimp. Popcorn shrimp, 5/0 octopus on a fish finder slider rig. "Normal" sized shrimp a 6/0 octopus hook.

Wednesday 11/9 delivery possible if you get your order in by Sunday night 11/6. Any later than that would be a crap shoot with the postal service.
