Choosing The Right Single Hook To Replace Treble Hook

How do you know what single hook size to use to replace the treble hooks?

Have you replaced the treble hooks on your artificial baits and other hard plastic baits with some single hooks? If not, you should definitely think about it. Here are some advantages:

  • Single hooks are better for the fish than treble hooks (fewer holes in the mouth, face or eyes of the fish)
  • Single hooks are less likely to snag you (every fisherman probably knows a treble hook is more likely to snag onto you)
  • Single hooks are less likely to snag on trees, grass, clothing, nets, etc.
  • Single hooks save you time unhooking fish

Yes, your hook rate will drop slightly, but with all the time you save to unhook the fish and anything else the treble hooks get into, you’ll actually be able to cast more, and therefore likely cancelling out the reduced hook rate. Now the big question is… How do you know what single hook size to use to replace the treble hooks? Below is a video that explains exactly how to do it! Watch the video below to see what single hook size you can use when replacing treble hooks.
