I have not heard that from anyone. It is not on TWPD's Legal Devices, Methods& Restrictions page. http://tpwd.texas.gov/regulations/outdoo...evices-for-fish
I prefer live bait on a circle hook. Trebling a live shad is common. The problem is that the fish has a tendency to suck the bait all the way in and therefore the treble catches in the stomach instead of the lip making it difficult to impossible to release the fish alive.
