Quick Strike

3 posts in this topic

I have an interesting question. The new QuickStrike rigs are on the shelf in local tackle shops and retatilers. Question: are they legal in MN. For those not familiar, the Quickstrike rig is a double treble hook rig with a tiny blade on one treble (for use with live bait). I heard on the radio last Saturday in a show with T3 that the rig was not legal. I am assuming because there is a blade on only one of the trebles. The second treble is on a line possibly longer than 3 inches.

I put this one out on the floor for discussion since I have one tied on but have not hit the lakes yet. Whats the good word guys?? Am I legal in MN or not? Thanks all

Check out the "pike/muskie" area. There have been many discussions about the quick-strike rig. I by no means am an expert, but I believe that as long as it has a spinner blade or similar on there turning a "hook" into a "lure". I'm not sure where that line is drawn.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
