Default Jigging Spoons

Since fall jigging is here, I thought I'd ask - how do you fish your crippled herings - with treble hooks or with single hooks? They come with the option of either and I've always fished them with a snap and a single hook. Bought some Heddon jigging spoons today and I noticed they come rigged with a treble. I've never really paid much attention to it.

I always take off the single hook and put the treble on.
I don't know why, though.
Because the voices tell me to.

I can't say where I read it or what the logic behind it was,,,, but, I read that a single hook results in a more secure set of the hook. Many salmon lures and baits use a single hook for that purpose. I personally prefer single hooks for Kokanee and seem to get a deeper hook-set resulting in fewer pull-outs.

Steve Gerber (CWA member and former board member) will be giving a seminar at Sportsmans Warehouse in the Springs on Tuesday October 3rd about jigging spoons. I sat in on his seminar up at Bass Pro last month and it is one of the best I have seen. He displays and talks about more types of jigging spoons than I have in my tackle boxes and goes into detail about how to read your electronics for active, semi-active and non-active fish. The meeting starts at 6:00 and is free to the public. Steve is a walleye and laker guide and is sponsored by Eagle Claw...he knows his stuff.

Have you guys caught anything on the Herrings? I mostly use Hopkins, Rocker Minnows, Kastmasters and Krocadiles. Those all have trebles. I always try the Herrings, but I never get anything on them I can't find the old 3/4 oz Rocker Minnows anywhere Only have three left. The 1/4 oz is my favorite ice fishing bait and is still available at Thorn Bros!

i like the single hook best, they dont foul as much as a treble, i have both in my box, but i have kastmasters, crockadiles, hopkins, and some others that i have changed to a single hook, for jigging

For the most part, that is all I have used (aside from Kastmasters) for straight jigging. I've had good days...I've had bad days

I've done well on the crippled herrings for trout and kokanee. I use the single hook.

I prefer a treble hook if I am jigging aggressively without the lure being tipped with bait as I seem to have fewer missed hits this way. Working it slower and tipping it with a mealworm or piece of a nightcrawler I seem to do better with a single hook.

Single hook might be an advantage with trout and Salmon when they jump? I still haven't found anything that beats a 1/8 oz Kastmaster for trout and Kokes thru the ice? Silver/blue and silver/orange.

I caught alot of small walleye and perch last year on the Buckshot Rattle spoons, but they were to light to slab in deep water with! I found them in 3/4 oz at BPS last week. Looking forward to giving them a try also.
