OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


Want to know how to get a rod back that you kick over the side of the boat. Tipster has a way!

Ever kick a rod over the side? Or, lose your grip on the anchor rope and drop the whole thing in? Well, if either happens again the water is not terribly deep, Old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, has a major 'tip' for you.



Take a look at the accompanying photo. Note that big old treble hook. It is about the size of the palm of your hand and has a good, heavy lead collar molded onto it. Tipster also has ground the points off just a bit so it will not penetrate anything (like stumps, logs, and especially my fingers). Tipster keeps one right up on the front deck, just in front of his trolling motor peddle. He also keeps a float marker fastened there, too. If Tipster, or one of his friends, kicks a rod over, it is a simple matter to quickly toss the float marker close to where it went in. Old Tipster then takes off a lure and puts the big hook on his line. With a few drags on the bottom around the marker, the hook will almost always snag your lost treasure. I have recovered a dozen rods and three or four anchors (by snagging the submerged rope) with the big hook device. But, remember to grind down those hook points. No need to recover logs, too.

A common question that we get: "Is there somewhere close to get bait and tackle?" This is where we get our bait.
