SmartBait Lures New to the FTFF

SmartBaits Fishing Lures


"Fish see color", said Smartbaits representative Michael Dingman "and the unique chemistry in Smartbaits lures imitate wounded bleeding prey fish changing color at different water temperatures and depths. Predator fish hone in on those colors of vulnerable or injured smaller fish and attack. Smartbaits incite that attack. In cold deep water or warm shallow water, just one Smartbaits lure will change colors from chartreuse to red or watermelon to june bug to attract more fish to strike."

Smartbaits is a fishing lure company with a unique revolutionary color changing technology offering an innovative solution to help anglers catch more fish. Using a patented color change technology that enables our fishing lures to change colors at different water temperatures.

When a Smartbaits lure is cast into the water and it moves through different temperature ranges it will change color, and this color change process is designed to alert fish that there is activity in the water Once the lure has fully changed color (a quick and continual process as the lure moves through different water temperatures) then it will appear to be wounded and bleeding and the fish will attack the lure.

Teaching the Next Generation

We all meet up at about 8:30 am at a little after 9 we had 10 kids from the La Habra Summer camp show up eager to catch a fish. Well Flyfishingfool, GT, Casting Call and I got to work talking to the kids helping them to understand the sport of fishing. After a short talk we got the kids out on the water to practice casting. lesson was learned by myself spool all reals myself, don't use the the store bought rod and reels that come pre-spooled. So we had a lot of knotes to get out but we pushed on. Next set them up and do some bluegill fishing most of all kids caught fish and all had a lot of fun. So here are some pictures from GT of the day I will post some from my phone and my wifes. I would like to give a very big THANK YOU to Casting Call, GT and Flyfishingfool for all there help this never would have happened with out there help as well as everyone that donated to the cause.

Float Tube Fanatics
Universal Fish Finder Mounting Systems The universal fish finder mounting systems from Float Tube Fanatics & Fish Finder Mounts .com are amazingly innovative products. They have really come into the market place and filled a niche that was long overdue to be filled.  For many many years, since float tubes or belly boats started to come into the marketplace there was no really clear solutions available to easily help fisherman adapt a fish finder of their choice to their belly boats or pontoons. The team at Float Tube Fanatics has completely changed all of this with their true universal float tube mounting systems. These systems literally allow the fisherman to pretty much mount any popular fish finder of choice from Lowrance, Humminbird, Garmin & Raymarine to their float tubes. Their solutions not only allow a fisherman to literally choose from scores of fish finders on the market, and put them on their tube, but they also turn these fish finders that are traditionally engineered and designed to be permanently installed into boats into very compact – extremely portable fish finders. Taking your fish finder with you wherever you go has never been so easy, with the single strap mounting system from Float Tube Fanatics. The sport fisherman is no longer confined to the traditional portable models of fish finders because the Float Tube Fanatic’s mounts make virtually all fish finders portable.  “What I love about these fish finder mounts is that they operate on one single polypropylene strap making a difficult thing very simple and easy. Also their articulating transducer mount is ingenious in that it offsets any angle, so this is perfect for offsetting the radius of an inflated float tube bladder. Having the long-life rechargeable battery built into the whole unit is also extremely handy. It stays with your mounting gear and keeps your pockets free for your other gear and goodies you need when float tube fishing. “ “I have been using the Float Tube Fanatics mount for 2 years now, and I can’t imagine float tubing without it. It has become a necessity for me. It allows me to concentrate on fishing. I don’t worry about the transducer being set correctly, or if my control head will fall in the water like I once used to. There’s even a cable management solution built right in.” “If you are wanting to attach a fish finder to your float tube, look no further, the Float Tube Fanatics universal fish finder mounts are a must have. They have amazing – personal - customer service and their products are built to last.”
