This has been a very difficult year to manage inventory. Stocks of many items are lower than I would like at this time of year. If you are shopping for a Christmas gift, please do not wait until the last minute. There is a good chance your items will be out of stock if you wait.


Micro Baits

by JDA
(MIDDLETOWN , NJ)

Last weekend I was fishing bluegill using a Fountainhead Caddis rod rigged with nine feet of four lb. yellow test line and finished off with a double loop. To this, I added a tanago hook via a loop to loop connection. I also added a #4 shot two inches from the hook on the one lb tanago snelled line.

I used this set up to test a few micro baits. I tried three artificial baits at about 1.5mm in length and various colors: silicone bands, rubber bands, and Little Atom Micro Noodles.

While the rubber and silicone baits worked well, the Little Atom micro noodles were amazing. Red, black and white were the colors that worked the quickest. I would suggest using a razor blade and pointed tweezers to make the job on cutting and adding the bait to the hook a bit easier. The baits come in a pack of 18 and are very easy to store. For us urban anglers it's a good alternative to worms and other live bait.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
