I saw some saltwater guides fishing vegetation that switched out trebles or single hooks on rip baits and was curious about 2.0 Squarebill or trap applications for certain areas with a lot of cover

If so Gamakatsu octopus is a good choice. Don't think I could stomach going with two hooks as opposed to six on my crankbaits though.

In Florida (Lake Kissimmee specifically) during a drought you could find old Big O's with the back treble changed for a single. I found 6 of them one year, so it was definelty all the rage. The fact that I found 6 tells me it was not snag proof.

offshore fishing it is done to increase the amount of pressure you can apply to the fish. better hookup into more meat/bone. I don't really see a benefit to doing it in freshwater. if worried about vegetation, use a chatterbait or swimjig or weedless swimbait.

that's why I was throwing that spinnerbait into those weeds on texoma.. couldn't get a treble bait in there to mimic the shad.

I started doing that on a few lures for when my wife and I go out to catch hybrids and sandies, so there's less chance of getting a hook in one of us while unhooking them.
I've been really impressed at how few times I've missed fish with them. Caught a bunch of sandies, hybrids, walleye and bass on them this summer.When fish get hooked, they get in the boat.

I have done this with some top waters as well. It made them a little more weed less but not what I was hoping for.
