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.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
