Unpopular Tackle that Works

Postby DirtyD64 » Mon May 07, 2018 10:50 am

Just wondering, what are some products (ANYTHING) anglers on here use that don't get much love or just simply that don't get used heavily. One of my favorites that I have NEVER seen anywhere else is HiSeas Quattro fluorocarbon. It is pink, purple, grey, and clear in an alternating pattern, a little thick, but extremely strong, long lasting, long casting, and overall amazing. Just enough color to watch your line, but not enough to spook fish.

I also really like Lethal Weapon's swim jigs, not many seem to mention them ever either. OMTD hooks come to mind also, never seen anyone else mention or use them, and I love them. They make a football head with a wide gap hook that is absolutely perfect for Keitech 4.3" and 4.8" swimbaits...

I used to spilt shot rig those with a swivel and fish them over weed beds on warm summer nights. They come folded up in the package and when pulled through the water would straighten out a bit and spiral and then fold back up on the pause. I find myself doing a low more finesse fishing with weightless worms so a I might have to buy a pack again and give it a go.

Id always just reel them nice and slow so they would slowly spiral along and whatever it is about them id always get bit no matter the time of year. The back hook would get the gills that would nip at it and the other 2 would snag the bigger fish. Pike, bass, walleye, pearch, gills, crappie would all hit it. It was fun because i really never knew what was about to come up out of the water.
