no you can't. A treble hook by itself can not be used. A treble hook, or any more than one hook must be attached to a lure. however, you can get past that by tossing on a spinner adjacent to the treble. It doesn't hurt. I've caught plenty, but of course I rule. good luck.

A crawler harness will do the trick.

Take a look at GM or your local store for quick strike rigs. They typically include a treble with a very small spinner (the size of a pinky nail). I have these on all of my tip-ups and have had much better success setting the hook on northerns.

Good luck,

Curtis

A treble hook can be used, but you must have a Blade or spinner with-in so many in. of the hook. I will check and get the exact distance.

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.
