trapper treble hooks

Recommended Posts

Just got my 2018 Lurecraft catalog and they had the Trapper treble hooks. Has anybody used or seen them? Will they hold fish better? I lost a big fish last night on a Wiggle Wart with Gamakatsu 471 hooks and got to thinking that these just might work, but they seem a little gimmicky.

I don’t think their a gimmick but I don’t think they work any better than regular round bend trebles either.

   Try em gives us a review?

It would take a lot to get me away from the owner st-41.  Search around until you find a hook that you have faith in.  No wrong answers just ones you do and don't like.

I haven't used the Trapper trebles but I have used the Trapper drop shot hooks and honestly I'm not a fan.  Once they get hooked into a fish they do keep the fish locked in tight, but that same "locked in tight" deal means removing a hook is a nightmare because you can't just reverse it out smoothly and just have to deal with the barb - you have to deal with the barb and the 90 degree angles.  I had a hook break on me while trying to remove it, I had two others bend on my while removing them.  Two Trapper trebles hooked deeply into a fish and that fish is gonna be dead by the time you get it back in the water.
