CharkBait Umbrella Rigs!
- 1 KG Center Weight, 36" width, 1/4" Stainless Steel Bar, Squids or Tuna Feathers
 
 
We've finally received our Dredges (aka Umbrella rigs). Like our spreader bars, we're using 1/4" stainless steel bars (not flimsy wire), and upped our weight to 1 Kilo (2.2 pounds) on these stout rigs. The bars can be used individually or "stacked" for even greater fish attracting effect. Again, like our daisy chains and spreader bars, we're having these made up with both squid squirts and tuna feathers (11 lures in the spread). The bars are unique in construction, but also quite traditional in design. And, because there is no middle man in the process, we can offer you greater value for your dollar invested. Please do compare these rigs with ones costing several times more. No arguing the effectiveness of both lure types - squid or tuna feather. But, if your game is tuna or (when the water temp moves up) yellowtail, our unique Spreader Feathers will be a fish catching investment well made.

CharkBait!
Chains and Spreader Bars!

We're very pleased to introduce you to another new CharkBait product line, something we've been working on for a few months time. As a private boater I've long used chains to help entice a bite, to aid getting noticed and make a greater fishing return on my fuel investment. It's all about getting noticed. While CharkBait has long been associated with outfitting long range fishermen, we've also earned a good reputation for assisting private boaters - which I'll suggest is the specialty that got us into the tackle trade in the first place since that was the beginning of the CharkBait. We were first a private boater's networking and reporting website. So, it's natural that our own products would be geared to folks fishing from their own boats. The new CharkBait Chains are geared for the private boater seeking better coverage, better visibility and better fishing while on the troll. The lure packs are made for us, to our specs overseas. The quality is quite good, and since we are acting as both the importer and retailer we have eliminated one or more layers of markup on the pricing. We are passing that savings directly to you. The following lures represent a very good value for something that you should be dragging behind your boat. All lures come in a storage bag. Lures are rigged on 200# leader.

Products:

  1. "Green Machine" Chain - Five 9" lures rigged in-line - compare them to rigging your own at $50 or more. 9' length

  2. Tuna Feather Chain - Five 6.5" Tuna Feathers - compare to other manufacturer's chains that run about $50

  3. Squid Chain - Five lures, the trailer rigged like the other chains above, in 9" and 6" length.

Please compare the prices and quality of what we are offering against any other supplier on the market.

Spreader Bars

Getting noticed is the name of the game for private boaters. That's why spreader bars and daisy chains are so well accepted as fish drawing tools among the better skippers. I've long been a fan of running bars and chains, because they do work. They provide a very good reason for a predatory fish to cover more water to bite your lure. There's more of a commotion, more noise in the water, more splashing around, more silhouettes to see from below. My first experience with bars came from a fellow named Fred Archer, he helped popularize an East Coast technique out here on the West Coast. I bought a couple of his bars many years ago, still have one of 'em. They were made on a thicker bar than what we generally see these days, and I liked his more than the others I've messed with since. Usually, at least in my estimation, the bars are too thin, and often there are too many baits on 'em. So, there's more wasted time on tangles. When we made our bars, we remembered some of the old lessons, and applied them. Our bars are made on 1/4" diameter stainless steel. That's a 1/4" stainless steel bar folks, not 1/8th or less, not cheap highly flexible wire. Bar length is 36 inches, an easily manageable size for most any boat. We use a stainless steel chaffing spring to protect the mono-to-hook connection, double crimped where it counts. We also shorten our wings, so to speak, with the two side chains only long enough to meet at the middle of the bar. This does much to eliminate tangles on the lines. We have these bars made with tuna feathers, as well as the more common tube squids. Feathers, as any angler well knows cost more than tube squids, and they draw more strikes on the troll. So, why not rig 'em on the bar! Well, cost is one consideration that's prevented folks making spreader bars with feathers before. Since we eliminate the middle man with our own line of lures and accessories, we can pass that savings your way and upgrade the lures, rigging and value. Value is very strong on our spreader bars. They are simple, more basic than some on the market, but made to last and to be fished hard. The CharkBait Bars come in a nice lure bag allowing for drying as well as visual inspection. We've made four bars in the traditional squid patterns and four with tuna feathers. All will prove effective, and all are a dandy value.

New CharkBait Lure Wraps and Totes

In keeping with the wonderful items above, we've also produced some excellent lure wraps and a Panga Bag. There are three lure wraps in the stable. The small wrap has six with 2.5" by 8"wells and measures 8.5x15" when open.  Our big game wrap has seven 5" x 12" wells - large enough to hold marauders or your larger marlin sized lures. Unwraped the Big Game wrap 34" x 13" when unwrapped. The Large Lure/Utility Bag is an interesting and functional item with four large 3"x13" size wells and eight smaller 2.5"x7" wells for storing lures, jigs, pliers, or other essentials. Behind the wells are two additional storage areas which are perfect for holding your leader coils. This is a very nice lure wrap, with a whole lot more possibilities as an all you need storage outfit for a day's fishing adventure. All the wraps feature an open mesh bottom to vent moisture.
