The 6 Best Treble Hooks
This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in June of 2019. Treble hooks can be an important part of a fisher's tackle box, as they can greatly increase the odds of success, though they are not a great choice for catch and release anglers, as they do too much damage to the fish. Because of this, you should always check state and local regulations before using one, as they are not allowed everywhere.

Many anglers will buy treble hooks to replace worn-out hooks on their favorite lures, or to upgrade the hooks that come with them to something sturdy enough not to bend if their prey is putting up a fight. While the design and usage of treble hooks is pretty straightforward without a lot of variation besides sharpness and strength we did find two innovative designs when evaluating these hooks.
The Mustad Ultra Point Elite comes with a shorter shank than the typical option which allows the angler to use a larger size without the risk of tangling, that coupled with the brand's specially angled points for extra holding capability and it's superior sharpening process makes it a top choice.
The Gamakatsu Magic Eye takes a hook from a brand that is known for being of high quality in terms of strength and sharpness and adds the convenience of a tapered top so that users can add this hook to their lures even when out on the boat without having to reach for an extra tool.
