Most lures on the market come pre-rigged or recommend treble hooks as a standard.

Below are some advantages and disadvantages of using either single or treble hooks on your lures.  

Hook

Advantages

Disadvantages

Treble

-Great hookup rate

-Holds more water so it’s easier to swim in most conditions

-Scratches lure significantly

-Hooks are more likely to fall off during fight

-Tends to open up when there is a lot of pressure

Single

-Doesn’t scratch your lure as much

-Gives the best swimming action

-Tends not to fall off during fight

-Doesn’t open up easily

-Doesn’t damage fish as much, better for catch and release

-Harder to swim in rougher conditions

-Not a great hookup rate

 

Double Single

-Fish can easily get hooked due to having 2 hooks

-Hooks don’t fall off easily

-Slightly heavier than singles so you can rig them on belly

-Harder to swim in rougher conditions

 

 

A popular rigging option is putting a belly treble and a single tail hook, this will help your lure dive in with the weight of the treble hook whilst being light on the back to give you a strong tail kicking action. Mix and match accordingly to your needs
