Mustad to Introduce Pete Maina Signature Treble Hook at ICAST

Miami, Fla.– Mustad, the world’s best-selling fishhook brand, is excited to announce the new-for-2019 Pete Maina Muskie Treble Hook. Maina has long been recognized as North America’s foremost expert on muskie and pike fishing, and the long-awaited launch of his collaboration with Mustad is sure to create a buzz.

Pete Maina Muskie trebles (Ref No. TG101NP-BN) are a Standard Wire/2X Long UltraPoint designed for fishing on large plugs and lures, and are made with as light a wire as possible for minimal impact on lure action. Mustad’s legendary Triple Grip bend yields maximum power at hook set, and its superior holding ability keeps your fish of a lifetime on the line. 

The barbs on Pete Maina Muskie trebles are 30 percent smaller than those on standard muskie trebles. This promotes a faster and safer release of fish and makes it easier to convert the hook to fully barbless. These new premium trebles are available in Mustad’s eco-friendly Black Nickel finish, and come in sizes 1/0 to 8/0.

Mustad’s Pete Maina Treble Hook series features the company’s 4.3 Micro Sharp Point Technology. This unique, three-stage, Opti-Angle sharpening process provides a sharp point with incredible strength and durability, which means hook points don’t roll and stay sharper longer. Mustad’s Nor-Tempering process results in up to 30 percent more strength than conventional hooks.

“I’m very excited about the hooks. They’ve been designed with just the right combination of shape, weight, size, and strength to maximize the action of your baits,” says Maina. “I have complete confidence in UltraPoint Hooks.  Not having to constantly check and re-sharpen your hook points means more fishing time and fewer missed fished.”
