HOOK-OUTS & BOLT CUTTERS

Simply put, you cannot hunt muskies without certain tools. If you do, the probability you will be hurt, or that death or injury to the fish will result, increases dramatically. There are four tools you should never leave the dock without:

1.) Hook-out
2.) Small bolt cutters
3.) Jaw spreader
4.) Heavy duty long-nose pliers

Of course, it is ideal to simply “pop” the hooks with the hook-outs or pliers, but every year lures get bigger, hooks get stronger, and it gets harder to remove them without overdue stress to the fish. That’s where the bolt cutters earn their place in the box – if hooks are hard to reach, or in a vital place, cut ‘em. Replacement hooks are cheap.
