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...

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck.
