The Northland Predator Rig is a deadly "quick-strike" bait presentation for large toothy predators; such as Northern Pike, muskie and walleye. These rigs are just as deadly whether used below a tip-up or a large float. The Predator Rig is constructed of 45# Surflon nylon coated stainless steel wire and features a "Y-Yoke Harness", designed to present live or dead bait in the most natural way possible. The pair of "holographic" Baitfish-Image attractor blades flash and flutter to lure fish in while the set of premium blood-red treble hooks hold fast once a strike occurs. The three available sizes will hold baitfish from 6" - 12" in length.
These rigs come one to a package.
Used this rig with the orange blades this past weekend with a piece of smelt on each hook. Had 6 flags total and landed 4 northerns. Much more action than others fishing with just a single trebel hook. Had one northern take me into a stump or tree and was able to pull it out without damaging the hooks or the leaders. I caught all my fish after that incident so everything functioned fine. Definitely going to be using more of these rigs.
Last pike of the day flopped and rolled a few times on the ice and made a HUGE mess of my tipup backing and this rig.. it was totally my fault but just a suggestion, hold them down until you get the rig out of their mouth.
I use this rig icefishing with large smelt and herring for pike. Works great,easy setup.
