The VMC 1/0 circle hooks worked pretty well for us today. You kinda have to eyeball it though, because the size varies from brand to brand. A 1/0 VMC is noticeably smaller than other brands like Mutu or Owner.

For 50# braid & lighter, I use Mustad 39941 2x 3/0 size - good mingo hook too - eye large enough for doubled 60 lb mono - for chicken rigs

Mutu #2, #1 or 1/0 are great hooks - thicker wire good for deep mingo/big trigger fishing - with heavier line/leaders - will hang in there with big triggers .. just pricey

Love the Mutu light wire - just not for trigger - smaller sizes wire is too light and bends too easy
