This forged, extra strong Mustad Pike Hook is developed for ice fishing, where the hook/bait is presented vertically. Designed to hold whole dead bait, such as Roach, Perch or small Herring. The most common way to ice fish is by using Tip-ups, which is a device used to suspend live or frozen bait at a set depth. When the fish takes the bait a flag tips up to signal the angler. Use it to target Northern Pike, Muskie or Walleye. The “MTL-V1” point combines a more efficient point design with a new sharpening process to enhance the quality. The result is a sharper, sleek new point shape with penetration resistance 50% lower than standard Classic Hook points! Bronze finish.
