Bass Assassin - Screw lock and push on
Zman Trout Eye - yellow eye or white eye
I normally use longer shank heads but opt for short shank if throwing Gulp Swimming Mullet for flounder. Prefer screw lock over push-on as I don’t like frequent adjustments required to push the soft plastic back onto the head when the plastic wears out from multiple fish.

Where do you find knotty hooker heads at?

No telling. I mainly use the 2/0 but have gone back to 3/0 with Better success.

No. I think mine are from about 5 or 6 years ago. I stopped in one time while scouting and bought about 100 so I would be set for a while.

depends, seems most fish tend to follow from behind prior to eating, and grab the back end first. a lot of times when you are reeling in close to the boat, they think it is getting away, and move in for the kill, from behind. it's a confidence thing. just my thinking and it has served me well. i could be wrong.
