Question about treble hooks...

7 posts in this topic

I think as long as you put some beads or a spinner on it so that it is considered a "lure".

I would just use a Quick Strike Rig if you can.

good idea...i never thought about that.

do you what the regs are?

i know it says not to use one under the fishing regs, but doesn't mention tip ups specifically.

Like Dtro says, you need to add a small spinner blade to make it a lure, without the spinner, its just a hook, you need to make it into a lure, which you can do by adding a spinner blade to it.. Not only that but it adds a little flash which isnt a bad thing.

From state statutes:

97A.015 DEFINITIONS.

Subd. 2.Angling.

"Angling" means taking fish with a hook and line. An "angler" is a person who takes fish by angling.

From regulations, page 8:

Angling Methods

• Anglers may use only one hook. An artificial lure is considered one hook. A treble hook, when not part of an artificial lure, is considered three hooks and is not legal.

Using a tip up would fall under the definition of angling. Hope this answers your question.

One of the worst offenders when it comes to gut hooking pike is a minnow under a tip up. If you plan to release any of the fish use a quik strike rig. No matter what way the fish grabs the bait the trailing hook catches on the outside or roof of the mouth and prevents the whole rig from going down the gullet.

In rare cases if the fish is big enough and the rig small enough the whole rig can be swallowed, but as a general rule the quik strike rig is the way to go. Hans

One more point about using quik stike rigs, The trailing hook, if outside of the mouth,dangles and can easily catch on the bottom rim of the ice hole or on the rim of a net.

While using a net, if the hook catches on the front rim-flip the net under the fish and the mesh will turn inside out and you can usually get the net under the fish before it uses the leverage of the net to pull itself free.

I imagine you could stuff your rod down the hole to save a rim hooked pike. I have only lost fish because of the trailing trebel, never saved one. Hans

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
