If it's in shallow waters, hongkong hooks are probably the best. But if you're talking about typical drifting in southern islands, tenya or madai might be a good choice. I personally prefer apollo rig as the hook line is slightly elevated from the bottom where as with tenya or madai you need to hit all the way down where all the sharp rocks are.

They're not as good of a bait as tambans or selars but they are usable and may not differ much to fish like groupers or cobias.

I see. Thank you. Guess these bait stealers have some use to them.
