You will base the hook size obviously on the size of the fishes mouth and the size of the lure. The size of the hook also effects the lures action. For example I use a offset #6 with a zoom brush hog very often and I am focusing on catching 2.5 lbs to large bass. If you are fishing for crappie or bluegill then of course you will have to use a different size hook for this application. More hooks the better. A single hook will dig in deep and grab ahold of the jaws but if not angled correct you can yank it right out when setting the hook. A treble hook is great for making sure the fish stays on. But the catch everything from leaves to trees to stumps. And they do not grab hold of the fishes mouth very deep.
