I tie the KK's on size 8 Mustad R73 3X long 2X strong hooks. Size 8 seems to be a good size for me. I've caught some real river monsters on them and never had a problem. I also use the largest size bead the hook can take.

As for the foam bugs, I've done a few yellow and brown ones too. For some reason, the bluegill here love a light seafoam green one with white legs.
