Default Best hook/rig for striped bass

Looking to create my own rigs vs. spending the money for the pre-set ones.....there is a huge savings in doing so. Curious what the census is on "the best" all around hook for stripers, as well as what leader, swivel and fish finder you are using.

Start with this, freshwater or salt, what are the regs where you are/white size fish are you targeting?

Stripers and eels - egg sinker above swivel. Weight as needed to stay near
Bottom. 100# power swivel with 6' 40# fluoro and 6/0 gamma circle. Retire hook as needed until leader <3' or 4'. I am careful to spin a hook in the egg sinker to be sure no sharp edges.
