    I always carry a good heavy pair of wire cutters and some extra treble hooks of your favorite size. When I hook a fish too deep with the trebles. I dimly cut the hook at the curve and pull the barb straight out. Leaving a small hole in the fish where the hook was. Then I just replace the treble hook and keep fishing.

    You could just leave them in because it might effect how the minnow moves but if you want to Im not against you I have that same problem some times

    Okay! I 'll try pinching two barbs first. If that don't work I'll swap it out with a single.. I thought about cutting 2 hooks off but I was afraid the hook might be too small? Thanks you guys.

    You could clip off two of the hooks on a treble with wire-cutters.

    the treble hooks should be attached to the bait by little rings, like a miniature key chain. these hook on to little loops on the bottom of the bait. slide the treble hooks off the rings, just like a key chain, and then replace them with single hooks.

    I have an awesome imitating minnow.. but I really hate triple hooking fish inside there mouth. Is there any way to swap out trebles with singles? Or do I just deal with it... asking for help. Or advice on this.
