Replacing treble hooks with single hooks

Postby Bob Daly » Wed Sep 20, 2017 1:07 pm

Hi Larry: Hope all is going well! When replacing treble hooks on large lures such as huge GT poppers do you generally replace the trebles with similar size single hooks or do you use a slightly larger size single? In process of exchanging lots of trebles per outfitters guidelines. FYI just back from Alaska Peninsula on silver trip. Amazing. 28th straight year and the fishing keeps getting better and better. 8)
Thanks doradokiller. :shock:

Usually getting the weight of the hook correct, meaning single that weighs same as the original treble, is the main issue in making sure the lure runs the same. good luck!
