I’m going to be shoreline fishing for Northern pike this summer, in Jackson’s Point, Ontario. Any tips for making my own leaders, or maybe other types of leader material for knotless rigs?Posted on April 17th, 2016
Hi David, Black Creek near Jackson’s Point can produce some pike both just up from the mouth and up-stream. Most anglers fishing Lake Simcoe for pike focus on the south-end of Cook’s Bay where there’s ideal pike habitat.
You have a couple of options for making your own pike leaders. The first is to use/make a heavier Fluorocarbon leader. We have a great tip for making connecting heavy Flurocarbon leader material to your main line on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel. You can view it by going to, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4trzxBw3uq4 . You can also use “Toothy Critter” leader material.
