Spinnerbaits: Trailer Hook or Not?

This weekend was all about spinnerbaits on Lake Istokpoga and everyone was throwing them.  On Day 1, I was using a Death Shimmer spinnerbait with a trailer hook and never missed a fish.  My partner for the day was fishing without a trailer hook and missed a few fish.  He caught more fish than I did, but my landing percentage was better.  It also seemed like my trailer hook was catching more hyrdilla than his was without the trailer hook.  I personally use a trailer hook 100% of the time for that extra confidence that any fish that bites will get hooked.  Could it ever work against you?  I don't know but I am going to stick with the trailer hook.
