Jigging Spoons-Treble hook or single hook

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what your preference is when it comes to jigging spoons. Do you keep a treble on if it was bought with one or do you change it out to a single hook? Any pros/cons of either?

On the smaller spoons I like to change the treble out with a single hook, more for panfish and perch, on the larger spoons I have some with singles, and some with trebles. I have found no difference in the catching. It is easier to remove a single hook when deeply hooked though.

I agree, single hook on smaller spoons seems best...it is a pain trying to get a small treble out of a 7 inch perch's mouth. For walleyes I like to exchange the trebles that come with the jigs to Daichi (sp?) trebles. These extremely sharp hooks on the back of the thumbnail are "sticky" and it seems like they go through the bone in the eye's mouth a lot easier. I use to lose a number of fish near the hole, but have not had that problem in the past 6 or 7 years.

I usually change out the trebles for the little 3 in. leaders with a blood hook. If using a whole minnow gives them a lot more area to move.

Thanks. These are also my thoughts concerning changing out the trebles.

My 2 cents. I only use HALI chain hook spoons. Single hook on a chain works great! Now that they have 3 replacement hook sizes available I can change up or down, depending what bait I want to add to it, small minnow or soft plastics. Sharp hooks, very easy to check your cholesterol...

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
