I've been using treble hooks for punch bait and single hooks for everything else.
But a point was brought up re: if both lips get hooked and the line brakes...

The way I get punch bait to stay on the hook would work on a single hook (and probably be easier to do). So, I do believe I have used my last treble hook.
I certainly wouldn't want a fish starving to death because he/she couldn't open his mouth to eat.
