What are you fishing for, and what are you using?

So if you are using the weedless rig i am guessing that you are hiding your hook inside of the worm. That is what I usually do, and I dont get snagged too much. The hook does go through the worm sometimes, but I just do a quick check before I recast out each time. The worm does wear out after a while which makes the hook come through even easier, when this happens just switch out the worm with a new one.
Another setup is the flippin rig which has a weed guard on the hook that covers the tip. It covers it enough to where it is harder to snag, but you can still set the hook in a bass's mouth.
There are lots of different ways to keep your hooks weedless. Type in something like "weedless bass rigs" in Google and you will get alot of results.
One more thing I do is use 20lb spider wire so when I do get snagged I dont have to worry about not being able to pull it out through the weeds.
I hope this helps.

What Sort of cover are you fishing? A Texas Rig with a 5/0 hook should work well. If you have lots of brush, or rocks, Use a smaller bullet weight. I never seem to have much problem except with rocks. During that case I'll usually use a brush hogg, or a tube, during like tournaments when i"m willing to spend a little more time for presentation Take a sewing needs and tile the line to it.. Run it right down the middle of the tube out the bottom, getting a good amount through there, place the weight on he line and tie the hook on opposite as you would hook a normal tube.


Its time consuming. But usually smaller weight with smaller hook on texas rig does pretty good... Now if your casting in the trees, I cant help you much there.

This is the Texas rig. It is where you hide the hook in the worm.
