Single hooks for pike


Recommended Posts

So I'm looking to leave the trebles behind and move onto single hooks.

 

I like to use sprats on my local canal and am looking to have a single hook up through the throat latch and out top of the head.

 

Can anyone recommend a hook fit for purpose?

Can I have your bank account number and sort code please?

I'm a great fan of barbless, circle sea hooks.

as always, why do people think the scissors is a good place to hook pike (or any fish) and say it like its a badge of honor

All,   I agree with Andy. Hoop nets are the only way to catch pike. Just put a sealed gallon glass jar of bait fish in the jar. Works a treat.   The technological "action" described for a circl

Go for it,i did last year and I will never use trebles again,if I remember right I started half way thru the winter and out of 20 runs I hooked 18 and all were hooked in the sissors,this has been done before and there is a lot of fors and againsts,I used a single size 4 or 6 carp hook and hair rigged the baits, even if I was using a whole herring,happy days

The technological "action" described for a circle hook is counter intuitive to the pike family. I'm willing to learn if someone wants to tell me how/why it is a "good" hook for pike.

Andy - where would you like them to be "caught" - in the lens of a camera? We are anglers not PETA, Yes, there will always be collateral damage - that's what we DO!

Didn't Leon Roskilly cause a similar rumpus a few years back when he started using circle hooks for Pike. I always thought doubles would be a good way to go with a small barbed fook to attach the dead (or live) bait and a single barbless hook for the hook up.

After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.

Phone ive no serious issue with what we do and i have hooked pike in scissors but thats just random luck. I wont use a method that seems to always find its way to scissors by design.

 

As for where id like to hook em it would be inside the mouth in a good solid bit of cartlidge as is the majority of where my trebles end up.

You might like this setup, used for skate fishing but I would be very happy using it for pike. Leaves the hooks "floating" so 100% hook-ups. You would be mounting sprats or fillets of fish, and wouldn't need the lead loop, just the clip and bait stop.
