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.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
