Brown Bhead

The Floating Jig /Split Shot Rig with small piece of Hotdog or crawler piece. The   other Rig I use is a sliding sinker pinched off with a small piece of shot. Sometimes I use a float to get the bait a foot or so off bottom. My three Bullhead /Channel Cat rigs. I fish them by an incoming Pipe. April and May usually are the first catches of Bullies.

Carl I guess what ever Circle hook size,would compare with a #1 Baitholder  hook which is what I've been using.
