Quick Strike Rig

The quick strike rig is used with bigger sucker minnows or other types of large bait fish.  The idea behind this is that you will have a hook in the middle of the bait fish and muskie usually take a large bait fish by biting the center of the bait.  Instead of having to wait until the fish eats your bait entirely to get a hook set, you can get a hook set right away which prevents anglers from gut-hooking fish and killing them.  Most people that fish for muskie will be practicing catch and release and the quick strike rig makes it easier to do that when using live bait.
