Thanks Jann's Netcraft

December 7th 2013 01:28
Every now and then I like to recognize companies for outstanding service or doing the right thing. If you don't like that, don't say you weren't warned because it's about to happen again.

Overstock Bait logo
U.S. anglers have probably seen ads for Outlet Bait and Tackle and wondered if it's worth the risk. I have to admit I was part of that group although I've been on their mailing list for over a year but, I must say my recent experience was great!

Outlet Bait and Tackle is a mail order company that has a lot of overstocks, discontinued items, and closeouts. Some people may turn up their nose at that but a lure is a lure, and it's not like you're buying last season's fashions.

Using fishing pliers

January 13th 2013 23:53
Sometimes you just can't remove the hook from a fish's mouth and you need a little help. In times like these, a pair of needle nose pliers come in real handy to give you a little added leverage.

Pliers like this may be just the thing you need to remove a stubborn hook!

A few words about bite alarms

November 20th 2012 01:20
Although they're not real popular here in the U.S., bite alarms are one of the niftiest tools an angler can have.

People may call these gizmos "bite indicators" which can boil down to simple bobbers or floats.

While we're on the subject of bucktails, here's a video that may help you use one.

Don't be put off because this guy is fishing the salt--remember to scale back your equipment or lures and you'll be okay.

A few words about fishing with cheese

October 15th 2012 11:21
Sometimes people look askance when I tell them to fish with cheese.

What can you catch with cheese? You'd be surprised because almost any pan-fish will bite on cheese and it seems like the smaller they are, the more likely they are to bite.

Are tungsten weights worth it?

August 23rd 2012 01:50
It's funny how life works out. Back in the day, I never thought I'd end up wiriting about fishing and one of my best friends was too cool to fish.

Now, nearly 40 years later, I have this little blog and he's a tournament angler fishing in B.A.S.S.

Super Glue--the agnlers' friend

August 15th 2012 18:44
Keeping a tube of super glue, more accurately know as Cyanoacrylate, in your tackle box is not a bad idea. Granted, it may not be the proper adhesive in all cases but, a quick drying adhesive is just the thing you often need when something breaks and you want to get back in action ASAP.

As far as I know, most fish are not put off by the smell of super glue. Admittedly, I havenít done enough saltwater fishing to have an informed opinion. Iím pretty confident bass are okay with the scent. Iím still out to lunch on trout and catfish but, I havenít seen much trouble. My biggest problem knowing anything about catfish is because I generally end up using big hooks and something like chicken liver.

The other day the head on my string trimmer exploded into a few different pieces and since some of them were lost in the weeds, a trip to the hardware store was in order.

Little did I know, Shakespeare, well known in the angling community, also puts their name on trimmer heads.

Cordless knife goes anywhere!

September 26th 2011 01:32
Berkley Turboglide
If you eat the fish you catch, you're going to have to clean them and fish are always better if you clean them ASAP. Now you can fillet your catch as soon as it comes out of the water with Berkley's Turboglide Lithium-Ion Fillet System.

Yeah, I know it sounds like a razor commercial but if you tried the first cordless knives and wrote them off as low-powered or awkward to hold, this offering from fishing giant Berkley was made with you in mind.

Save your minnows with O-tabs

August 10th 2011 20:54
It's really a drag to finally get some time to go fishing only to find that all of your minnows have died on the way to your favorite spot. You may have an aerator but, those squiggly little critters have died anyway because once again you tried to carry more minnows than is recommended for the bucket.

Otabs and bucket
Aside from cutting numbers, you may want to try O-tabs. Otabs release thousands of bubbles of oxygen when dropped into a bait bucket and replenish the oxygen consumed by live bait. About three dozen, one inch minnows require an OTAB about every five to twelve hours. More or fewer needed according to weight, kind of bait and conditions.

What IS Bakelite

June 12th 2011 01:44
If you have an old reel lying around and you think it's a hunk of junk because it made from plastic, it may be highly collectable because that old plastic may be Bakelite.

A lot of people know Bakelite is some kind of rubbery plastic but are at a loss to know much about it.

Upgrade your reel handle

May 1st 2011 01:19
Here's an ad that popped up in my in-box the other day.

deep sea fishing
New fishing equipment comes out every other day so I'm not real crazy about promoting items unless I use them or it's one of those "Why didn't they think of this sooner?"

It would be difficult to count all the great fishing products Plano has come up with but, they've done it again with their Bucket Topper.

This is another product you look at and declare, "It's about time!"
