Already done.  I had a request for shad heads with bigger hooks and decided to offer them in the Commercial B/S/T section.  Here's a link to the thread and pictures. 

The link:   https://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/789074-heads-for-big-shads/

The last picture shows the standard hook size against the larger size for paddle tail shads.

What is the brand/model number of those bigger hooks? I have a bullet nose mold and would like the longer shank of those bigger hooks.

How about the Hogy Barbarian jig heads? They have a pretty beefy hook. 

seconded.  I think these hooks are actually VMC 7150's  if one was so inclined to make a lead mold and weight them yourself.

 

Another option are the TT Lures HeadlockZ HD (think they are affiliated with ZMan soft plastics).    Super heavy duty Mustad UltraPoints 3/0 to 8/0 hook sizes and 1/8 oz to 3 oz. size

They are Mustad #32824 hooks.  Expensive compared to the standard 34184 & 34185 hooks.

Thanks, definitely expensive at close to a dollar per hook but at least they offer a 10 pack so I can try them before buying 100.
