What can be considered unique fishing equipment depends a lot on how many species you are targeting. Unique fishing gear can be something that other anglers use all the time. Additional fishing factors such as the versatility of techniques, locations and conditions can also affect the fishing equipment in your boat. Here are four accessories that can be considered a unique fishing gear:
1. Fish Grabber
There are several types of these devices that are helpful when dealing with toothy fish such as pike, fin or sea trout. This fishing gear can also be equipped with a built-in measuring tape and / or a scale. Although the largemouth bass is not lacking finger-piercing teeth, the Major League Fishing tournament series uses a gripper with a digital scale with a lip clip for quick release.
2. Marker buoy
If you are fishing in the open water and get a hit, this handy device can be tossed overboard to keep you in the hot zone. Many anglers in larger boats may enter a waypoint on their electronics, but I prefer a visual reference point as well. My marker buoy is actually a duck bait; This is a little less obvious to other keen-eyed anglers.
3. Spinnerbait storage box
This is one of the most popular fishing lures, but the unique bent wire component makes it a wide shape that can become a complication for narrow tacklebox trays. Because there are many versions of blade types, combinations, and colors, anglers often have a lot of these baits, and this particular fishing tackle storage box is a way to keep them organized. Another way to solve this bait storage problem is to reuse plastic lunch meat containers with lids.
4. Alabama Rig
This multi-bait rig is a pourable umbrella rig that has been around for decades, but was only adapted for bass fishing around 10 to 15 years ago. Using a series of expanding wires, this distinctive rig creates the illusion of a school of bait fish. While the Alabama rig is not new, its restrictive regulations, more open use in the open air, and its adept ability to locate hooks make it considered a unique fishing gear.
There are so many types of fish and ways to catch them that there is a unique range of fishing tackle. While traveling, visit the fishing shops in the area not only to get a fishing license for this state but also to discover all the interesting fishing articles available from the locals. You can only learn a trick or two.
