jerkbait hooks

Recommended Posts

On my jerkbaits that have 3 sets of treble hooks, I have been removing the center one. It makes it easier to unhook fish with less damage to them and less chance of hooking myself. I have not noticed any change in the balance or action of the baits and I have not had any decline in strikes or fish landed. I am just wondering if there is any real disadvantage that I may have missed? Your thoughts? Thanks.

Suspending jerk baits that are missing a hook, will not suspend. They’ll rise up. If that’s ok with you, then go for it.

Sorry, I should have mentioned I only did this to the floating jerkbaits. As Scott said it would definately mess up a suspending bait some, unless you compensate with a suspend dot or something. Thanks.

Should not be much of a problem.
