Owner Wacky Hook 2/0 Weedless Camo Green - its perfect for that size Senko. And the weedless feature works pretty good. If you dont like the weedless feature go with the Owner Wacky 2/0 Camo Green then. Tie it on with a Palomar Knot.

Hi George! In my opinion, there is a big difference between the 5 and 6 inch Senko. The 6 inch is a thicker bait and needs a bigger, wider gap hook. Hold the 2 sizes in your hands - feel the difference! The 6 inch is a lot of material to plug up the smaller gap of a 2/0 hook. That hook is ok for a 5 inch, but I would go maybe 4/0 for the 6" Senko. Remember, you will probably attract a bigger class of bass with the bigger Senko, meaning more bone and a tougher time keeping a smaller hook embedded - especially if the bass jumps! And what quality bass doesn't jump - LOL!!

You did say Wacky style right? for the 5" the owner weedless hook in 1/0 http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Owner_Wacky_Hook/descpage-OWNWHH.html for the six inch I jump to the 2/0 and most of the time slide over to the Gammie hooks in 2/0 and run them down the rubber O ring or straw and not Through the bait as it is such a BIG difference as Larry pointed out I use the drop shot Gammie as the drop shot hook eye kicks out a lil from the shank and i like the way the bait falls through the water it seems to fowl less for me.

Honestly once I go to the 6" + I start texas rigging em as I am looking for a bigger bite and i want the stouter hooks. Im probably doing it all wrong though.
