Default Live Bait Tarpon Hook?

Using threadfin, sardines, bumper and mullet. Under balloons, on the bottom and slow trolled.
We can't do much live baiting for tarpon in LA because of bycatch but in Alabama we can.
I figured some of you SW FL and Keys guys might have a hook preference.
Thanks

I use a 8/0 VMC 7385 Tournament circle hook for tarpon fishing on the east coast of Florida.

A bunch of guys I've fished with swore by the larger diameter Owners, like the Gorilla.
