Saw this baby at a local hobby shop…looks pretty fun! The “Happy Hook’r” even complete with a real rod and reel that you can crank remotely.
I’m glad I didn’t have this thing as a youth because I may have used it for no good!
You read plenty about catching Atlantic Salmon in freshwater, but I’ve always wondered if there’s an ocean troll fishery for them somewhere. Yes, these are the random things I think about when I can’t sleep. But anyway, apparently there are some offshore fisheries, including at least one in Denmark. A quick Google search led me to these these pix of absolutely gorgeous salmon on the Shark Cannonballs FB site, but there wasn’t a ton of info about the fishery. In fact, there was very little about catching Atlantics in the sea anywhere that I found on the internet.
Sure, I’d rather catch ’em in some beautiful river flowing through an enchanted forest, but these fish are so stinkin’ pretty, it makes me wanna catch one offshore too! And by the way, this is what an Atlantic Salmon is supposed to look like…not the round finned mutants from the net pens!
I must admit I’d never heard of Paul’s Custom Lures out of Southern California before I received a little care package the other day. But I’m pretty sure they’re going to be in my arsenal going forward!
Check to the beautiful detail on these baits…very nice custom paint jobs and they feel extremely durable as well. My immediate thought after seeing these two samples: The 110 Redside (top) and the 130 Lavender Shad was: High Country browns and macks beware! The Redside looks very close to the Lahontan Redsides of the Tahoe Basin and the Lavender Shad is a spiting image of a young kokanee.
I look forward to dragging these things around soon and will report back. To see all the color combos, check out Paul’s Custom Lures.
