Stupid question I know. Most all the jigs we use in the GOM for tuna have 3 way aka treble hooks on them. Can I use the same jigs for Wahoo or will I have to change them out to one way aka single hooks?

very hard, bony mouth...single hook, all of the pressure is on just one point to drive it in. Treble, that pressure has to drive in more hook points. Single has worked for years...no need to reinvent the wheel ;)

Thanks. I've always been a professional masterbaiter. I tried throwing some jigs and bombs at hoos before but I didn't have much luck. Not that I didn't put the effort in it I just had better luck with bait. I've always read that single hooks are better, was just curious about 3 ways. Have a good day and a weekend sir. Tex
