Small Treble Hooks For Bass?

Recommended Posts

Basically the situation is that I had 2 un-useable lures.  One SK Bitsy Minnow with a broken bill and a Rapala Countdown Minnow that I found with rusted out hooks and splitrings.  What I did was put the Bitsy Minnow hooks (size 14) on the Countdown just so there was something on there and I could use it.  I think the Countdowns hooks were origianally a size 12.  Do you think I'd be able to hook any bass with a treble hook that small or would I be better off keeping this lure in my trout box?

I have had the SK bitsy hooks bend on a fat and feisty 13" bass recently when I was testing my sons rod out after spooling new line. But if your countdown is the smallest size they will catch you all kinds of other fish that won't bend the small trebles, I have gotten many a sunfish or bluegill and suckers too on a tiny countdown in perch color.

sure you can hook a bass with a treble hook that small. sometimes i will fish for bluegill using a rebel tad fry and its only got one tiny treble hook, occasionally i will catch bass on it...
