Hooks on maniac mullet

I just bought my first maniac mullet today, slow sink pink, and pearl pink crazy croaker.
What size hooks should i change out these lures to, or should i leave them how they come.From what i can see on the pics u guys summit, the hooks look like the originals.
I just recently changed out the hooks on my paul brown devil, 2/0, but have not had a chance to go out. I bought these maniacs in mcallen, and when i asked the salesman about replacing the hooks he looked at me wierd and said that was way to big.

Hey Jack, one time in naum............

Originals are fine, theyre not really too light unless you plan on catching a bunch of big reds and trout and using braid with the drag tightened all the way down the original hooks are fine. If you really want to change them out try the vmc 4x strong #2 trebles, i use these on corkies too. If you want them to sink a bit slower go with the #4.

I have caught big trout and a 39 inch redfish with the stock hooks on the maniacs and they didn't bend a bit. I wouldn't change them out unless they rust up.

Leave the hooks alone, they are made by a Texas company for saltwater fishing. I rinse mine off after every trip and with over 10 trips, no signs of rust yet.
