So I firmly believe that sometimes, I just don’t know things. I have done some basic fishing when I was younger, but seriously my mom would get some worms, we had some inexpensive rods, and went to the local stream, or pond and went fishing. My boys really want to go fishing, and I need to get them some rods and gear to go at some point. But we were sent some really cool fishing gear! I thought it looked awesome, but really other than that had no clue about it.
Since hubby’s buddies are avid fishermen, he brought them the goodies, to take and review for us! They were pretty happy!
Here is what Scott had to say about the products he received:
The frog is a good size and will be great for catching really big large mouth bass. I use them in the Lilly pads and heavy top water cover that bass hide under. Perfect for lake Scugog.
The jig heads I will use in deep water for walleye/pickerel by jigging them along the bottom mid summer when the walleye are in deep water. Likely use them on Sturgeon lake.
The jerk bait is good all day long when there are not a lot of weeds but the is structure for the fish to hide. Anything from bass, perch, pike, Muskie and walleye.
The monofilament line is good in really clear water that does not have a lot of obstacles like sticks and stumps. Also avoid heavy weeds. Great on open lakes where the water is clear and the fish can see your line. I will likely use this up north on the otonabee river.
All the products are part of the normal brands I buy because they work well and are top notch for quality.
As for the other 2 things:
These are really cool worm looking things! Seriously I could use this versus the wiggly worms! I hated using real worms. They have really sharp hooks that I am sure would stick really well into the fish and catch him really nice. Our friend said if he was a fish he would eat it….so there you go!
This was a cool tool. For me I could see it being really handy, and the clipping on your belt would make sure it was right there when you need it.
The jig-eye puncher was good, and is something you will always need. It’s a pain having to punch out a jig-eye with another hooked. The scissors are always useful.
