you will have better hookups when the gap of the hook is wider than the profile of the lure,especially the front hook. this comes from muskie fishing where we bend the front treble to a "T" instead of an even 120 degrees, on round or flat bottom lures. that way the hook protrudes beyond the sides of the lure when the hook lays back on the set. im sure this applies to your situation as well.
there was i time when i fully believed a single siwash was getting better hookups on my jigging spoons for walleye while ice fishing. i was finding when you set on that single point, a little farther in from the lip,( the siwash, being wider gapped than the appropriate treb)` you get better connected and the hook hit home. ive kind of shied away from this lately, but a lot if my buckshot spoons still have the singles on it. i was not using singles to inflict less damage, it was just to acheive better hookups. i didnt notice any major difference in damage between one barbed treble or a single hook. most salmon trolling spoons have just a single siwash hook.
i will agree sometimes the three trebles on a larger stickbait can be a pain.
ive mentioned the "siwash" hooks a couple times and ive found they seem to be the way to go . the ones in the pic are a bit large for the bait. try to find a shorter shanked brand, similar in size to the full width of the treble that came on the lure. they come with the eye partially open so its easy to put them on the splitrings, and the barbs bend down easy enough.
