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.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
