I do understand the concern. Most people are surprised to see the slow pitch setup as they are so tiny and thin. But there are reasons.
First, as I posted before, here’s the video of a man catching a 35kg Amberjack with 2/0 size hook. This is Captain Higashimura, one of the top slow pitch anglers in Japan. It takes skills, and a lot of luck too I’m sure, to land a big fish with light tackle, but it proves that it is possible.
He used normal Pike 2/0 hooks. 3 of 4 hooks he had on the jig were broken and 1 remaining hook was extended when he landed the 35kg fish.
