In an unforgiving world where bigger fish eat the smaller ones and only the strong survive, the largest and most savage predators usually come out on top.
That is unless you turn the tables on them – making you the biggest predator of them all.
That’s where Northland Predator Rigs™ enter the fight, says the US-based company. They eliminate fraying and prevent bite-offs. The seven-inch leader is pre-rigged for convenience with the right components to take on both savage strikers or spooky biters.
“The Quick Strike Predator Rigs™ are key pieces of my ice fishing tackle,” says Team Northland® Pro-Staffer Jeff Gustafson, a hardcore ice angler who plies the wilds of Canada for massive northern pike, elusive walleyes, hard-fighting lake trout and other species
“When you are out in frigid temperatures, howling winds and blinding snow, hopping from hole to hole to locate fish, you can’t afford to mess around trying to tie up component rigs with cold, numb fingers. I just grab the right Predator Rig for the situation and I’m ready to catch fish.”
Single Wire Predator Rigs are made of a blood red, 36lb test stainless steel leader to withstand the sharp, slicing teeth of big pike and muskies. Each has a 90lb test, #5 Crane Swivel and heavy duty leader sleeves to withstand shock and abuse. Faceted beads are included for added attraction.
Gustafson said: “They’re ideal for fishing large live or dead baits suspended under a tip-up or float. Just nip your minnow lightly below the dorsal fin with one tine of razor-sharp treble hook and you’re all set.”
Fluorocarbon rigs are made from 15lb test Bionic® Fluorocarbon Leader, providing a clear option for fussy fish like walleye. They have 30lb test, #10 Crane Swivel, plus a Super Glo® soft plastic attractor bead just above the premium treble to help focus the strike at the bait.
“These are lethal for fishing below tip-ups, floats and rattle reel set-ups,” added Gustafson.
All Quick Strike Predator Rigs feature an alluring Baitfish-Image® Attractor Blade to help bring fish in for the strike. And you can opt to add a second treble hook to the set-up to ensure that they are legal for use in states and provinces where multi-hook quick-strike rigs are not allowed. Adding the spinner blade transforms the rig into an approved lure configuration, not just a rig.
