Crimping Leaders

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I recently purchased materials for crimping leaders for some jigs I have, and I'm not sure how to go about it. They're single sleeves, not double, and rated for 15-45lb 7 strand. I got some 40 pound wire, and obviously a crimping pliers, but I'm not sure which of the slots in the pliers to use? There are some that are just small circles, and some that are U-shaped. The crimps only fit in the smallest circle one, and when I tried they still slipped out, so I just used a flat surface of the pliers to crimp it shut. I'm sure it's a bad idea, but I was... "frustrated" lol.

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
