Pretty much the same. I like having a little red on all my baits though so I have used the red hooks. Supposedly, red triggers instinctive bites due to a blood reflex. I have severely outfished some friends where we use the same bait except I had added some red to mine.
I use the red Gamagatsujapaneseword hook. Don't think it matters having the red since I use watermelon red baits mostly. Bite doesn't seem to slack off after the red flakes off and the gold hook shows.
Like most things, if I use it and have success I stick with it and don't try new stuff.
