Default Best Rigs for Maine bait fishing?

Checked out the store here. Have it narrowed down to: The High/Low Tournament one and the Slap Shop double fish finder. I vacation in Maine 2 to 3 times a year. July and Sept. I've always fished plugs. Would like to expand my fishing.
My set up is: Tica 11' 3-8oz w/ Shimano Baitrunner 8000D loaded with 40lb power pro.

What would be the best size for the inline circle hook?
Best rig?

Thanks.

What were you going to use for bait?
I use a 6/0 for small bait clams etc and 8/0 for chunks bunker etc.

The fish finder and the hi/lo are both very good rigs. IMO

For the most part I fish with clams. Squid and Chunk bait(bunker, mackeral) depending on where I am. I fish MA, CT, and RI areas also.

The tournament circle rigs are all inline?

Last summer I was up in Maine near Rockland. Lots of fishing and precious little catching going on. I sort of lucked out when I went out at 10:00 PM on the back deck of the house I was visiting which was on a cove, and heard the stripers smashing baitfish 50 feet from my deck. I caught nice fish with a bucktail and teaser right in my own back yard.

The lesson: look for the big fish in the coves on a quiet night when the high tide comes in. Daytimes they are very hard to find.

Good luck this year!
