barbless hooks?

First let me say -thanks alot- for all the quick responses to my "newby" type questions. Next question. I have always fished barbless for trout. My only 2 bonefish trips, I fished barbless and never lost a fish. Now that I am aquiring larger flies for tarpon,jacks etc., I am really tempted to crimp all these barbs, is there any real problem if I make all my flies barbless for these larger fish, I really dont mind loosing some fish now and then, I am more into the hunt and the hook-up.
