10. Daoud Sabiki
Those who want to waste no time going after the big boys may wish to consider something else, but if you’re attempting to create a stockpile of bait fish for attacking larger prey another day, the Daoud Sabiki (around $11) is a useful set. The small hooks are great for mackerel.
- Available in 3 quantities
- Reflective for good visibility
- Swivel may rust eventually
9. ilure Alabama Umbrella
The more bait you throw out there, the better your chances of hooking into a mess of bass, right? Consisting of five spinners connected by a web of flexible wire to imitate a school of small fish, the ilure Alabama Umbrella (around $10) certainly believes in that approach.
- Nice variety of color options
- Spoons twirl fast and fluidly
- A bit complicated to set up
8. Berkley Walleye
Anglers, by nature, are a crafty bunch, which helps explain why the Berkley Walleye (appx. $10) is a popular choice. As long as you are a willing do-it-yourselfer, this model provides enough pieces to build 15 customized rigs to fill out your tackle box.
- 80 bright attractor beads
- Very affordable and effective
- Need to purchase hooks separately
7. Sanhu Crawler Harness
If you’re looking to spice up your approach to trolling, give the Sanhu Crawler Harness (around $16) a whirl. As you drag one behind your boat, the worm or plastic attached to the hook looks like it’s lackadaisically drifting through the water, making it attractive prey.
- Work with live or artificial bait
- Ideal amount of line resistance
- Can be tough to set the hook
6. Tackle Crafters Pompano
Some say saltwater fishermen are a different breed. Whether that’s true or not, the Tackle Crafters Pompano (about $25) should enhance your chances when targeting bluefish, drum and sea trout out in the surf. They snap together quickly and remain tightly locked.
- Made in the united states
- Leaders rated for 30 pounds
- Come in a pack of 12
5. Bullet Weights Perch
Available in four enticing colors, the Bullet Weights Perch (around $7) will allow you to have a field day if you get into some substantial schools of pan fish. The strategy is simple: let it drop until you feel it hit bottom, then give it a solid crank to bring it up a foot or so.
- 2 individual hooks
- Suitable for minnows or worms
- Nice level of sensitivity
4. RignFish Surf
Hand tied using high-quality line, swivels and hooks, the RignFish Surf (about $23) will attract hungry sea bass, flounder and even small sharks. You can drop a line directly from your vessel, but they’re also effective if you’re fishing from the beach or a pier.
- Corrosion-resistant components
- Each is packaged individually
- Ideal for saltwater angling
3. Booms CRR Ready
All five rigs that come with the Booms CRR Ready (appx. $14) are separated, so you don’t have to waste time untangling lines and sorting pieces before heading out to the water. Depending on the conditions, it’s simple to change the weight if you need a different size.
- Make a fish-attracting sound
- Durable brass bullet sinkers
- Do not get snagged easily
2. Bullet Weights Bouncers
Walleye are often known to be hanging out within a few feet of the floor of a lake — a difficult area to consistently position your bait. The Bullet Weights Bouncers (about $11) allow you to feel the bottom at all times, and thus keep your lure in that coveted territory.
- Choose from chartreuse or orange
- Can add a spinner to it
- Really effective when trolling
