I only use treble hooks if I absolutely have to. A single hook is much safer for the fish and easier to unhook.
Same here. Isn't it illegal in most places to put a live baitfish on a treble hook? I use my circle hooks for anything of any size. If I'm fishing with punch/dip and not using a worm I put a sponge square on a treble and it works fairly well.Yes it all depends on the bait your fishing and the fish that you are targeting. I would only use treble hooks with a punch or dip bait. All other, live or cut baits I would use a single hook. Or double single hooks.
Yikes!!!! I caught a Zara Spook in the Ear......still bear the scars. One second of carelessness by my fishing partner and we're off to the ER too. Treble hooks must be respected at all times!I use to use trebles for cats but found you get more snags too. Trebles have there place on muskie and walleye lures. I stopped using them when my brother got one in his thumb after the cat flopped just right in the boat. We had to quit fishing to go to er to get it removed, ruined the whole day.:eek1::laugh:
single hooks only,I despise trebels for cats,I am not much of a cpr fisherman,But i prefer to release all under 3-4 lbs,I don't think trebels are cpr friendly to cats,
