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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
