Northland Predator Rigs™ Whip Toothy Tough Guys

Bemidji, Minn. – In an unforgiving world where bigger fish eat littler fish and only the strong survive, the largest, most savage predators usually come out on top. Unless you turn the tables on them, making you the biggest predator of all!

That’s where NORTHLAND PREDATOR RIGS™ enter the fray by eliminating fraying and preventing bite-offs. They’re 7 inches of no-nonsense leader, pre-rigged for convenience with the right components, whether you’re fishing for savage strikers or spooky biters.

“QUICK STRIKE PREDATOR RIGS™ are key pieces of my ice fishing tackle,” says Team Northland® Pro-Staffer Jeff Gustafson, a hardcore ice angler who plies the wilds of Canada for massive northern pike, elusive walleyes, hard-fighting lake trout and other species. “When you’re out in frigid temperatures, howling winds and blinding snow, hopping from hole to hole to locate fish, you can’t afford to mess around trying to tie up component rigs with cold, numb fingers. I just grab the right PREDATOR RIG™ for the situation, and I’m ready to catch fish.

” ‘Single Wire’ PREDATOR RIGS™ are constructed from Blood Red, 36-pound-test Stainless Steel Leader to withstand the sharp, slicing teeth of big pike and muskies. Each has a 90-pound-test, #5 Crane Swivel and heavy-duty leader sleeves to withstand shock and abuse, and faceted red beads for added attraction. They’re ideal for fishing large live or dead baits, suspended beneath either a tip-up or a float. Just nip your minnow lightly below the dorsal fin with one tine of the razor-sharp treble hook, and you’re all set.

“‘Fluorocarbon” PREDATOR RIGS™ are made from 15-pound-test Bionic® Fluorocarbon Leader, providing a clear option for fussy fish like walleyes. They have a 30-pound-test, #10 Crane Swivel, plus a Super Glo® soft plastic attractor bead just above the premium treble to help focus the strike at the bait. They’re lethal for fishing below tip-ups, floats and rattle reel setups.”

All QUICK STRIKE PREDATOR RIGS™ feature an alluring Baifish-Image® Attractor Blade to help attract fish in for the strike. And, should you opt to add a second treble hook to the setup, to ensure that they are legal for use in states and provinces where multi-hook quick-strike rigs are not allowed. Adding the spinner blade transforms the rig into being an approved lure configuration, not just a rig.
