You might want to consider using a good swivel and a xxx 7/0 - 9/0 J hook. Just like the bonita lures. Gives a great hook up, its a stronger hook and there are no swinging trebles to hook you. I changed all of my stretches this winter.

The secret to not getting hooked by a flailing treble is to put the fish from the gaff to the box. If you set it down and let it flopp someone might pay for that move. Ice tends to have a calming/chilling affect on a flopping fish.

i second the j-hook as opposed to treble..... much better hook up ratio.
