Default Deadly Dick - Replacing Treble

Started using a Deadly Dick in the daytime and it works. Definitely my fav metal go-to for Stripers now. The issue is the number of lost fish with the treble. I had read that many replace it to a single hook which I am a big fan of, just didn't have any spare single hooks. I have a 3oz, what size hook, 4 or 5? Targeting Stripers and fishing in the surf. Was thinking of putting on a hook with some white bucktail on it. Has anyone found the lure changes how it moves/performs when adding a single hook?

I switch out the treble with a single 1to2 sizes bigger than the attached treble.
I think it swimms with better action.

Hows the fishing? I'll be up in the York area at the end of Sept.
Lazy days. Tight lines. Cold Beer.

Tks for the reply. The fishing has been off a bit of the last week. Strange as some areas are producing and some aren't. Fished the weekend during the day and caught a number of stripers but nothing big. Largest was 29" but did see some big fish in the waves so they are here. Just need to entice them to bite.

I doubt that switching from a treble hook to a single is going to reduce the number of lost fish. It will, however, reduce the amount of damage done to fish that you catch and release, which is a good thing

I use a 4/0 hook on a 3oz Deadly Dick.
