Jigging Spoons-Treble hook or single hook

6 posts in this topic

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...

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
