Jon, you sure teach me a lot... your posts are always subtly huge. Gracias....
The double hooks with the connector look great, but I would likely only use them if tourney fishing...hi dolla lil' mofos.
Gary Yammamoto fishes 17lb in way different type of water than we fish out here... In CO we are usually finess fishing in super clear water where stealth is far more important... I use different wt line for different conditions and def different for texas rigged... When using a big worm hook, you gotta hit those fish hard, so you gotta have some strong line, and you are usually fishing mad cover. When wacky rigging, you don't set the hook nearly as hard and it is usually not in heavy cover (wacky kinda defeats the weedless aspect of the bait).
ATK is the Senko KING and should chime in with some tips. All hail the king of senko!
