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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
