Just wondering what everyone’s preferred brand and hook is for sturgeon. We always seem to be questioning if we are doing something wrong if the fishing is a little tougher. Also this year we pulled more hooks than we have in the past. For the most part we use 5/0 Gamis or 5/0 Team Catfish hooks. I know some guys will only use 3/0. We typically run 80 or 100 lb PP or 832 for the mainline and leader.
I know some guys are using light leader line or even mono. Has anyone had better results going lighter on the leader? I’d think they would feel 20lb mono as much, if not more than the braid.
Just curious what other people think.
