The black shad Fat Max is the same as the smaller version, so I guess the red shad is the same. I fish for largemouth bass and use Gamakatsu size 5/0 offset shank worm extra wide gap, Texas rigged. 3/0 and 4/0 size hooks also work well.
The worm bodies are 7/16" wide, app. 3" long, with tails app. 4" long, 7" total.

Red Shad color is just like the old Red shad color and I would suggest a 2/0 or 3/0 wide gap off set hook.

The red shad color does feture the old version color (black back with a red belly). As for the thickness of the worm, it does have a much thicker profile than a standard curl tail worm. For a 7 inch worm, try using a 4/0 or 5/0 hook.
