Looking for some good quick strike rigs -- My father in law is a big time tip up man - but he looses way way to many fish. So time to get him onto quick strike rigs -- anyone know of a commercial one that puts a rubber band through the nose cavity of a sucker and pins a double hook below the dorsal ?? A few years ago I use to make my own and they work great -- they hang wonderful under a tip up !! When you pinch off the leader a few inches back from the main hook with a clip clamp -- you make a good looking L shaped leader -- with a snap at the joint you can thread a rubber band through the nasal opening of a sucker and slip the triple hook under the dorsal -- keeps the sucker setting nice and they seem to last a lot longer -- of course they dont last long when the Pike are on the feed !!!
If people concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing rods. Doug Larson
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
