I have been adviced to change treble hooks on my spoons/spinners for Mahser which are either aluminium trebles or thin wire trebles. But how do I know the size of the trebles so that I can order replacement trebles made out of thick wires? What is the correct make / wire thickness to order?

Hi Ashok,

You will have to change trebles as often they aren't strong enough for Mahseer. I use 3X and 4X trebles for my Mahseer spinners/spoons. I've recently ordered some Mustad 5X trebles for my sea fishing.

You should find all that you're looking for here:

Hope this helps,

That info on mustad hooks helped. But how do you estimate the size so that you can order the correct size of treble hooks / single hooks. Would you prefer to use single hooks as a repacement for trebles?
