  • Treble hook?

    Anyone hered prefer to fish with lure instead of single Hook jig?
    Yesterday was another good day out with a few of lure types. I caught more than a few and it got to the point of being annoying to remove those treble hooks. It takes quite a lot more time and requires pliers almost every fish. I wear prescription and I need to remove my glasses to remove those hooks. Another thing is when you find where the hang out with single hook I can remove hook fast and cast for the next and catch more almost every cast, but treble hook by the time Im done with the first or second fish the school already move to new spot.
    I plan to switch all of those treble to single hooks once I find the right size. It is fun fishing with those lure and quite often time the bite feel a lot more aggressive it just not a good way to fish for number. I plan to shop for more lures but I might have to put a stop on it until I can figure it out how to handle those hooks.

    I abhor treble hooks. Not only do they harm fish targeted for release, but they can be downright dangerous to our well being as well. After years of experimentation with various hook alterations and replacements, I found this to be the best solution - for me:

    This is using the VMC Inline single hook, designed to be a replacement for trebles. Works extremely well on crappie cranks and I've employed it now on blade baits for bass and lake trout, as well as spoons. You might do well to consider this alteration. JMO!

      The VMC I use is only available in the 1/0 as their smallest size. Works on all my cranks. Not sure if another manufacturer makes these in smaller sizes, but the crappie don't seem to mind this one at all.
