The Kurtis Katch-All is a bait holding rig, that is unparalleled at catching Pike, Muskies, Perch, Salmon, Lake Trout and Walleye.  Originally designed for bobber and still fishing using smelt type baits or mutiple minnows, it also works great for ice fishing, slow trolling or even as a fish decoy.   This rig was invented in 1957 by my father Louis A. Kurtis (1905-1992) and I assisted him in getting patents for the device.   The "Bait Holder" is primarily designed for use with frozen smelt, (one of the secrets) but can be used with big minnows, frozen, dried or canned natural baits and even imitation baits.   The main attraction to the Kurtis Katch-All is the superior hooking capability of the rig.  It provides 4 treble hooks on spreaders, an additional hook can be rigged once inserted into the bait.  It is easy to setup with a substantial central support, the cross member slot guides allow easy no-miss insertion and the bait remains in a natural horizontal placement.  The Kurtis Katch-All is completely contained inside the bait fish so that game fish can not "mouth" the rigging when attempting a strike, all they get are the hooks.
