Im not too sure how long it is now since I made the decision to switch to single hooks on my hard lures? I guess it has to be a couple of years now. I do still have a few lures in the box with treble hooks but as they corrode they always get replaced with single hooks. Its pretty grim to witness. I do ponder as to how many Bass I sent swimming off to a watery grave or at the very least seriously affected their chances in the harsh world I returned them too? How well can a one eyed Bass hunt or avoid predators?
Doing Battle with Blackfish. This is why I don't use treble hooks! After a short trip on the river this morning wuth about 7 pike landed, I was making my way back to the launch and found this guy floating belly up, down the river. A nice 28" pickerel that I took out of the water to look at.
