Boy u nailed it dead eye. You couldn't be further from right about any of that. Blue collar with no fly fishing experience. I stand by the statement treble hooks with spawn are better for snagging and singles are better for bites.

For fishing skein a treble is better for holding it on the hook. So if that works for you go for it. For CPR a single does less damage. When I fish CPR I actually go barb less or Circle hook or both.

As far as Livefreefishhard is concerned where I come from we mind own business and one gets hurt. Don't let these prima-donna my way is the right way guys intimidate you with their negative BS. Sounds just like a fly guy in a $2000.00 Simms Tuxdedo with their $1000.00  rod & reel. Livefreefishhard if probably just a typical flosser. Just a flosser.

Go2, notice the word need. I don't think there is a need for treble hooks with spawn unless you are looking to snag fish. With the high quality single octopus hooks available at the same price or less than a quality treble you would more than likely get more bites, which translates to more fish caught. So what's the need? I never said it's illegal. Fish with trebles, I guarantee the guys fishing single hooks will catch more fish legally than those using trebles.

When I first started fishing the harbors in the fall with skein or spawn sacs some 25 years ago I used treble hooks with either a small split shot or under a bobber.  Back then I'd never heard of or even considered using anything else.  They're absolutely legal and hook up's aren't a problem.  Having said that, with the increased sharpness/quality and the invention of good smaller sized hooks they're a good choice.  To each his own.

"LiveFree" - If you're not sure, why do you assume negative, or illegal?!  Live Free

Not sure why you would need to use a treble hook with a spawn sac unless you are looking to snag fish. You will have better hooking percentage with a fish that bites using a quality single octopus hook.

Trebles are perfectly legal with spawn or any other bait.  In the river upstream from the harbor the gap size on a treble needs to be less than 1/2in from sept 15th To first saturday in may.

I was told today that using a treble hook with spawn sacks is illegal. After reading through the rules a few times I haven't found anything saying this. Can anyone clarify?
