High tech comes to catfishing
We all know high tech innovations are an important
part of the fishing tackle industry. While most of the focus
is on bass and other other fish people normally think of as glamor
fish, someone is working to improve the chances for catfish anglers
That development is in limb line fishing. Paul
Bella has created a product based on his experiences as a child
growing up in New York. He made many a trip to the local river
to trout-line fish with his dad.
He saw many of the anglers using milk jugs to help
them in their fishing. Kansans might relate to it as jug-fishing
(which is illegal in Kansas, but legal in Oklahoma). It is legal
in Kansas as long as it is anchored to something,which is the
main purpose of the Floating LimbLine. It can also be used as
a straight jug fishing device in states that allow it.
Bella's idea was to create a better way to achieve
the same or better results. His "Original Floating Limb
Line" is billed as an all-season, all-hour fishing product
proven to catch fish in a variety of ways... floating limbline,
floating troutline, jug fishing, drift-fishing, still-fishing.
What ever your fishing preference may be.
According to company officials, "It's simple
and easy for beginners to use, yet durable enough for experts
to bring in the big one. River or stream, pond or lake, day or
night, the Floating Limb Line is so effective at catching fish
it's almost unfair."
The manufacturer, Bella Secrets, knows that bringing
in a fish isn't always just "hook and go." Thanks to
a lifetime of experience, the Floating Limb Line has been designed
to be tangle-free and handles a variety of fishing problems with
The Floating Limb Line consists of three working
sections - the limb line, the base and the bait line.
consists of a high-strength fishing line and a heavy-duty clamp.
Just attach the limb line to a secure structure, and the limb
line provides a reliable anchor, no matter how big the fish.
The limb line connects to...
a high impact Polystyrene float that is waterproof, environmentally
friendly and virtually indestructible. Its beveled edges allow
it to float smoothly and effortlessly at the surface of the water.
Extending from the bottom of the base is...
The Bait Line
also uses a high-strength fishing line, and comes standard with
large 5/O size hooks that allow you to use the big bait that
your even bigger targets will want.
he secret of the Floating Limb Line is a small
cylinder inset in the base where the bait line connects. Inside
this cylinder is a high-quality, extremely responsive spring
that makes setting the hook automatic. Once a fish grabs hold
of the Sea Guard Lazer Sharp Hook and starts to run with it,
the embedded spring will snap back, ensuring he doesn't get away.
Barrel swivels at three crucial points: where the
limb line connects to the clamp and where the limb line and the
bait line connect to the base. No matter how active the fish,
these swivels will keep your line tangle-free, with no twisting
The product solves a number of problems for the angler with its
tangle-proof features and a custom kit ready for use. The angler
doesn't have to worry about making some generic jug or limbline
out of bottles. The high flourescent colors help it be found
on the water.
Beginners find it easy to use because they can
just clamp it and toss it out. It's also billed as being great
for kids because it's colorful, easy to use and they don't have
to get close to the water. Parents won't have to worry about
the little one falling in. No more lost poles from the kids getting
bored and leaving them unattended. The device can also be used
attached to a rod and reel and used as an oversize bobber. The
spring loaded cylinder does the work and helps increase the number
of fish caught.
Other uses include drift fishing or multiple units
used as a troutline.
