I want to try using Seps grubs trolling for trout, my question is, what kind of hook do I use, and how do I put them on the hook?

Do a subject search on "grubs". There are numerous threads on grubs and some recent ones with pictures. What size grub are you planning on using, 2" or 3"?

I use a Gamakatsu #2 "light wire" straight shank worm hook most of the time, with a #4 Tru-turn hook when I'm just running a plain 2" worm. You just rig it like a "Jig" head, with the tip of the hook sticking out.
Like this

You'll notice the bend of the hook is opposite the curve of the tail. This will change the action. I usually make sure the curve of the hook matches the curve of the tail.

Usually one of the moderators will provide a link to previous posts on the subject. If none arise, I'll take a pic of the complete set-up.

Some guys use the wiggle fins when fishing with the grubs also. My hook is a #2 Gamagatsu light wire worm hook. But I only use 3" grubs and not 2". Seps or Berkely power grubs.

Here's a pic Dennis had posted a few times. If you are fishing Amador I have had better luck with the 2" grubs.
