# of hooks

Recommended Posts

Guest

Next summer will be my first trip to MN and have been avidly reading thru the forums and the DNR regulations. My question is about hooks. The DNR regs state only one hook my be used, treble hooks only if part of an artificial lure. So, are harness rigs with more than one hook legal? I see many posts refering to crawler rigs.

Yes, crawler rigs with three single hooks are legal.

But now that brings up another question. What about a sucker harness with a treble hook on it? Is that considered an "artificial lure" tipped with a sucker minnow???

When using a rig like a quick-strike rig or a single treble hook, you can make it legal by putting a spinner within 3 inches of the top hook or treble. I verified this with a conservation officer at the Sportshow this spring.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
