Hey guys

So I lost 3 snoek yesterday and I had a 1/0 BKK Raptor Z treble rigged to my 55g Onda Spoon. The thought behind using the treble, was that snoek tend to snatch at lures and let go quickly, and therefore the treble should have provided a better hook-up (I could be very wrong here).

Also, should you fight snoek with very light drag?

Thanks
