Just purchased a 3oz Gibbs casting swimmer {bottle plug] it came with three sets of 3/0 treble hooks.I would like to modify the plug by taking off the front treble and replacing it with a 4/0 treble for more dig in heavy surf.I would also remove the middle belly hook to prevent snags and weed buildup. Would these modifications affect the action of the plug??? Thanks for any input!!!! I Fish Montauk, Moses and Breezy Pt.
