Esperance Salmon - gang hook size and type

 Hi there  

I have a question about a rig set up for Salmon /tailor/Mullaway for surf beach fishing down Esperance for family Xmas holidays.  I've dusted off my 20 year old 650 Alvey and 13 footer going oldschool after Salmon etc. I'm mainly a fly fisherman but don't really want to deal with waves=surf etc with a fly rod. 

My plan is to fish mulies on a 4 gang hook setup either with a running ball sinker/star sinker or just bait casting. I'm wandering want size and type of hook to gang. Back in the day I used to use a gang of four 4/0 Tarpons for tailor but not sure if I should go to 5/0 for Salmon. I've used Kendall Kirbys and limericks on the past also but always preferred Tarpons.


Any help appreciated
