HOW TO MAKE A DEADBAIT TRACE

Post by Metalscobes666 » Thu Jan 11 2018 22:18

I got asked to show a novice angler how to make my standard pike fishing trace so I made a quick youtube video, I thought I would share this with novices on here too.

The trace is made from AFW 45Lb Bleeding Leader with Owner Trebles its 24" long which is my standard bait trace.

over the years I've used a few different ways to secure the top treble to the trace the knotless knot was the easiest i found to tie with numb frozen cold fingers.

but yes its the devils work I agree I've ripped off a few bits from the carpists over the years like the hook sharpening kit then the rig tube stuff after having a pike wrap itself up during the scrap it lost a few scales and tore some of the fins so I adopted the carpist rig tube since then the same things happened three more times and the tube just stops the pike losing scales.

carpist aren't completely useless hahaha
