Hardcore Lures “Pike Strike” and Happy Angler


Good morning! My name is Kristian Keskitala and it is a lovely november morning We´re standing here by the water and we ´re going to fish with soft baits With me, I got Henrik Persson from Hardcore Lures and Jani Markuksela who´s a great pike fisherman. We´re going to show you how to rig these soft baits and hopefully catch some nice pikes aswell Lets go! Henrik and I will now show you how to rig these shads in basically three ways This first version is going to be with a shallow screw I have prepared it with a leader with a stinger rig from Savage Gear. It works really great, I often use it myself Start by screwing the shallow rig into the shad. This is great because it does not damage the soft bait and it will hold it in place And then you simply press the spikes into the shad by the pectoral fins And the other hook in the back most fins. Now it´s rigged for fishing in shallow waters down to about two and a half meters Another way to rig this bait is with a weighted shallow screw from BFT You assemble it the same way as the ordinary shallow screw This is very convenient if you want to fish deeper than two and a half meters depending on the weight of the head There´s different ways to rig your stinger hooks. In this case I just put the hooks on to the side of the shad. One on each side or underneath the belly to achieve a certain movement Can you tell us ,Henrik, a little bit more about the material and why it´s so soft? The plastic that Pike Strike is made of is our own plastic and it´s extra soft in this model
And it´s also enviromentally approved So if you loose your bait in the water, it will dissolve As a fisherman, that´s really important to me because you´ll loose some baits from time to time Another way to rig a soft bait is with a regular jig head that I have modified
by removing the hook If you leave the hook on it´s easier to break the soft bait during a strike Simply assemble the jighead in the soft bait like this, and put a bit of super glue on it
so it will stay on And then use a stinger rig like this on the belly or one hook on each side Now it´s rigged for deeper fishing depending on the weight you use A couple of things that are good to know about the Pike Strike is that we designed it like this to achieve a unique swimming motion It both swims and rolls It´s 22 centimeters long and weighs 100 gram Pike Strike is available in sixteen different colors at the moment but during the spring
we´ll have nine more colors and a total of 25 different colors All of our soft baits are hand painted with air brush and covered with a coating to get a nice 3D effect What a strike! Marlin Pike Strike blue and white This is a five kilo fish Play it safe now It´s a strong fish Nice one! Yes! Yes! Lovely I am happy! Great! You´re the best man, you´re the best! 9,2 kilo and 109 cm It´s starting to get dark and we´re almost done for today I just wanted to say that the Pike Strike delivered big pike today Many thanks to you Henrik for hanging out with us and letting us try out different colors of the bait I have used these baits for a while now and they really do deliver big pikes Thank you too, it was really nice
