    Hut guys, does anyone have a photo of how you hook your 2 inch gulp camo worms for surf fishing? I always get tons of bites but rarely hook them maybe my hooks are too large.

    buy some size 4 and 6 owner mosquito hooks and just thread them on the hook from the fat end of the worm you could even wacky rig it i'm sure the perch wont care.

    I personally used a #4 or #6 aberdeen long shank hook and thread them on. Having the hook farther back towards the tail will get you more hookups. Especially when you normally are getting alot of short strikes.
