EPISODE #8 - 2018 Alex's Fishing Show!
Pro Staffer Kevin Martinek was in the lead after 2 days of filming the Alex Fishing Show. Douglas S. had a fantastic day skipping our bubble gum finesse worm under docks and almost pulled off a victory over Kevin & Alex. Great job, Douglas!! And to his little brother Nathan for whooping me & Alex that day as well. Will Kevin keep ahead of Alex and the others in the final episode of 2018, as Troy Lindner runs the banks of the Chippewa River and kayak guides Tyler Theide & Chang Lor of Small Craft Outfitters take Alex out on a guided trip challenge? Stay tuned to the next blog to find out....
NEW Double Dunk Dock Skipper
We were able to design a new lure over the winter break from open water fishing. As much as we love our well-built BEE WHACKER buzzbait, its plastic quad wing buzz could be damaged when risking an attempt to skip aluminum docks or around boulders. We created a new, HD metal double in-line buzzbait with a smooth flat body for skipping docks. This Double Dunk Dock Skipper has a weighted body for decent casting range, and will skip quite well for a solid distance. Our Kalin's Sizmic Toad trailer not only skipped well, it also kicked quite nicely during the retrieve. The metal on metal buzz system creates a unique sound that is incredible to hear. Also the counter-rotating blades spin opposite of each other, maximizing spray and commotion. This lure will be a fish catcher in 2019, and we highly recommend spraying some JB's Fish Sauce new frog mist on it, or apply it in the frog gel version. This lure is already listed in our online store and is ready to ship as we are stocking a small inventory of them for the Wausau Show in February. Check out the video below as I was able to skip this buzzbait even in horrible wind conditions yesterday on the river.
LOVERTAIL 2 Now Available In "Trout" & "Mississippi Mayhem"
Alex's Lovertail 2, our all-time highest selling lure design, and known "kicker" catcher, is available in 2 new colors for 2019. "Trout" features a painted blade imitating the rainbow trout forage. This could be a great option on a cloudy day, in trout waters, or in stained water. "Mississippi Mayhem" will be great in stained waters, in rivers, and anywhere that bluegill roam. The black and blue combo was put together for the anglers that chase bass on the Mississippi river, as their most well-known color pattern.
LOCAL ICE FISHING REPORTS
JAMES GANG PRO STAFF MEMBER KEVIN MARTINEK WITH A 17.25" SMALLMOUTH BASS CAUGHT ON A SUMNER BROS FLIRTY GIRTY
This ice fishing has been fantastic! Report after report is that the panfish bite has been consistently red-hot all season, and people are having luck running into solid bass, walleye, and northern pike as well. The few trips that our gang has taken has been very successful as we have been able to catch and fry several meals of delicious panfish. The Gullickson's Beavertail has been trailing all of my jigs for 2 seasons now, and simply catches fish just as well as live bait. I have treated all my Flirty Girty and Acme Tungstens this season with JB'S Fish Sauce in "Black Magic" and it has produced very well, much like the "Crawfish" scent did one year ago. The balm stick on a lanyard is the slick way to go when dealing with ice fishing.Click on the button below for more info on JB'S FISH SAUCE:
