What kind of hook does everybody like to use to keep fish on their lines over night? Any size preference for fish between 5 and 15 or 20 lbs?

I cannot guess if I will catch a fish between 5lbs, 15lbs or 20lbs if you can you better get lottery ticket for tonight! Other than that use a quality SHARP circle hook.

Circle hooks are the way to go. I've been using 8/0 and 10/0 Whisker Seeker Triple Threats rod and reel fishing. My son caught a 3 pound flathead on a 10/0. I would not hesitate to use these on lines.
