never tried, but thought about:
1) as treble replacements -- inline jig hooks w/ minimal shank bend (<30*)
2) body patterns actually painted like an injured bait ON ITS SIDE
    i.e., when plug is floating at rest, dark back & light belly on opposite sides, HORIZONTALLY!

That's outside the box for sure Phil.  But, if it is going to be repainted anyway then why not repaint with left side dark and right side white,  instead of making it list to the side with bent hooks.

Steve that's exactly what I was thinking. In fact I'm gonna try it next lure that washes up.

Here's what i ended up with. I know they're owner hooks i don't remember the size.

So you know its a party when a lure makes you realize you need more braid on your spool. Never seen that before. 90 yds

you're gonna' need a bigger spool  Shocked  at least, 1600 old-Daiwa / 2500 new-Shimano...  pref., BIGGER
when those things work, it's often right at the end of the cast, after the first few chug-chug-rest...  & they get SLAMMED!!!

EDIT
this looks more size-appropriate (or, maybe GS equivalent):

The first cast stopped midair at the arbor knot. It holds a good 30 yds more, I just sacrificed a lot when I saw a fuzzy spot after a dock rub. On 10# braid that's a lost fish. I already have a spool of nomad x8 to put on. I'll do it today, now that I know the stakes. Gotta give them a bit of space to get tired.

Here are the hooks you need.  Body hook points down,tail hook points up. 

I have used hooks like those in your photo in a pinch, but add an extra ring, so that they don’t point sideways and unbalance the plug.

Here’s a luck craft I took the trebles off.  I used two owner in-line hooks that weighed the same as the three trebles. Gets bit fine and so much easier to deal with

There are open-eye siwash hooks that you squeeze closed.  They will avoid having to use two split rings to keep everything in line.
