Single hooks?

7 posts in this topic

Moved to the state last November, and have been trying to familiarize myself with the seemingly endless fishing regs in preparation for spring. One that popped out at me today was the use of only one hook, and that treble hooks are illegal. Do all of you folks switch out the treble hooks on your crankbaits/spoons/etc with single ones? Any tips on where to find single hooks if you do?

I hope I posted this in the right spot.

Single hook is for live bait rig. Crankbaits, spinners, spoons etc. can use trebles.

It confused me as well when I first started fishing out here! If you keep reading the regs it states that treble hooks, as part of a lure system, are allowed. So basically, you can add a spinner to your line just above the treble and it becomes legal.

Thats the way it has been in the past and it is what i do. I use this on some of my northern set ups as i can set hook right away, same thing with circle hooks and quick strike set ups. So i can release the non keepers alive.
