My set up is pretty low tech. A bit of dish soap and a soft brush for the yak and paddle.

I've found the old school dropper loop keeps the bait and weight separated better than the 3 way swivel.

As for trap hooks, many good halibut anglers swear by them. But I've found traps get...

Ya, you may be over thinking it.

Singles are easier on the fish for C&R.
Trebles are safer for you if...
