Sometimes I dress a 4oz parachute with a 12" Shad for my wwb - though most of the time a 9" shad. just because it is 4ozs doesnt mean it is small. Some 4oz parachutes come with 8/0 or 10/0 hooks. Of course with the rubber shads, they get a stinger too.I have always subscribed to the idea of "BIG BAITS catch BIG FISH". I think 4 oz. baits seem small, but if they do the job, I going to try it. Any other suggestions on size???
