The Rig
A quick strike rig provides the perfect presentation when using dead bait. It allows for a single hook to be placed through the lips, while a treble hook is lightly skewered on the upper back side, toward the tail end. (see photo)
When a pike swims with a bait, turning it around to swallow after a short run, the hooks will usually find a secure place at the front of the mouth on the ensuing hookset. A No. 1 single hook coupled with a No. 4 treble works well in most situations.
Quick strike rigs can be purchased from tackle retailers, or designed by oneself. It can actually make for a rewarding hobby leading up to the season, and is inexpensive to get into.
