How many of you cut the hooks off your Jigging Raps? ...Front? Back? Both?

X2 with my Jigging Raps.  Have been using Moonshine Shiver Minnows a bit more these past couple seasons, though - No front hook on those.

Usually front hook on size 2 and 3 maybe 5.  Sometimes the fish are biting lure by the midsection and that front hook prevents the lure from getting engulfed.  I think that sometimes prevents the belly treble from a solid hook up.  One time in the mouth lure was sideways and both head and tail hook was perfectly lodged no hook point.  What are the chances of that?  ???
