How can I make my crankbaits weedless?

Fishing Weedless

Cast a crankbait with two treble hooks into the middle of a weed bed and you'll have a mess on your hands. There's not anything particularly natural about a small creature dragging a three-foot trail of weeds behind him. You can still fish the weedy areas where fish are concentrated with crankbaits with a simple modification. Snip the forward of a three-pronged treble hook off so that weeds will tend to slide right over the hook. You'll have to do it with both trebles. If your bait is a high-dollar lure with quality hooks, simply use split-ring pliers to remove the original trebles and replace them with cheaper hooks that you won't mind modifying.
