NEW - Cast-a-Weight Sinkers from K&E!

New from Stopper Lures, Cast-A-Weights! These new sinkers were designed specifically for the bass stopper worms. This handy new idea was made up to help the bass stopper worm glide easier through weedy areas. They come in different sizes and there is a size just right for you. These sinkers can be used on many other lures that stopper provides like; the rival spin, or even a Carlisle bobber for some easy blue gill fishing.
 


How to set it up….
Here is how to rig a bass stopper worm with cast a weight sinker…
 


-Step one. Tie a barrel swivel to the end of your line.
-Step two. Take the loop at the end of the stopper worm and attach it to the swivel.
-Step three. Pinch the sinker on your line about 18" up from the worm.
 


How to fish this set up….
One way to fish this set up is just like a Carolina rig. A Carolina rig is basically a weight above the soft plastic. Cast the bass stopper out and let it sink to, or near the bottom. Slowly retrieve, jigging up about 10 inches and back down picking up slack. When lifting up on the worm be ready for a strike. If pulling up and you feel a tug on the line, set the hook. It might be a fish. Another great way to fish this setup is to throw out the Stopper worm parallel to a weed line or drop off, let it sink near the bottom and slowly retrieve the worm. You can vary your retrieve, slow, fast, pauses and fast retrieves.

Give it a try and let us know what works best for you. Or if you have a favorite way to fish the Bass Stopper, we'd love to hear about it. Also, be sure to share your pictures and stories with us!

I hope you found this information useful, good luck and happy fishing.

Summer Pike Fishing

When it comes to pike fishing, the first thing that comes to people's minds are Rapala’s or Daredevil spoons. Pike taste good, they make a great addition to your photo collection or trophy wall, and they put up a good fight when hooked; so what's not to love about them? Believe it or not, there are more techniques to catching monster pike than trolling or casting for them. Here are some essential tips to help you land your next big northern during the summer:

Location
The location of pike can be found in weeds, deep water, fallen trees, or simply where smaller baitfish hangs out. But I find bays jammed thick with cover, openings to a lake or river, and weeds with a clearing in the middle most successful.

Lures
Like I said, when it comes to pike fishing, the first thing that comes to people’s minds is Daredevil spoons or Rapala’s. Those are both legends in the pike lure category, but I find live bait to work very good also. Pike will also take top water lures in the shallows, so when all else fails, bust out the poppers. I personally like to think of the quote “big fish like big lures” so I tend to use the biggest lure I can find when going after pike.

Time
Pike like water temps 65 degrees or lower too, so I always head out in the morning or dawn, because in the middle of the day, the sun has warmed up the shallows opposing from morning or dawn, where the shallows are fairly cold. However medium to smaller sized pike are more tolerant to warm water than the bigger ones. Pike fishing in the spring is also very good for shallow fishing.

How to Set Up a Rod
I setup my pike rod by taking a good rod, 6 to 7 foot and spool it with 8 to 12 pound test line, put a fairly big sized spinning reel on it, and top it all off with a leader.

Cleaning Pike?
Many people claim that pike are “too bony”. They are right, the pike are very bony, but that can easily be fixed. My dad and grandpa like to fillet the pike just like any other fish, but then they flip the fillet over and cut around the “Y” bones. When they are done, we end up with two strips of meat; the top one is fatter than the bottom.

Have Fun!
There’s not much to pike fishing and certainly, not much on Michigan’s inland lakes fights harder. Make sure to know fishing regulations when going after pike. Most lakes the pike have to be over 24” to keep, but some have a slot system in place, where smaller ones can be kept, but bigger pike need to be released. Also be careful when unhooking pike. You can look at some scars on my fingers to see why!

Finding Peace with Fishing, a young Army vets story

Kyle Kactro of West Bend, Wisconsin hauled in this huge largemouth out of Little Green Lake. The only equipment required was a pole, paddle, kayak, and a purple Bass Stopper Magnum. No official measurements were taken but this beauty is clearly in the two foot range. Kyle says, “The pictures I captured don’t do the fish justice. My biggest concern was snapping a few shots and getting him back in the water because failing to release the fish was not an option.”

Kyle is finding time to fish these days after completing his tour of duty with the US Army. He was fortunate to serve with some great soldiers on an elite combat team conducting missions and patrols near the Pakistan border in RC East Afghanistan during the Operation Enduring Freedom Campaign. The gentle waters of Little Green Lake in Washington County, Wisconsin are a far distance from the war-ravaged countryside of eastern Afghanistan in the Logar Province. Just ask Kactro.

He’s been learning to cope with the myriad of emotions following combat deployment. It takes time, patience, and coming to terms with a world that has lost much of the innocence of youth. Finding peace after living with war can be a shorter journey when you travel by kayak. The young vet figured as long as he was on the water he might as well bring along his fishing rod. His first efforts this season yielded mixed results, more often than not his hook came up empty. He soon discovered the Bass Stopper Magnum. The first time he tied on the purple worm he caught four, 15-18 inch bass within an hour. Afterwards, Kyle stopped by his folk’s house to find his hardworking father snoozing in front of the television. He had been lulled to sleep by another lackluster performance by the Milwaukee Brewers.

“Dad! You missed the party!”

“What party,?” was his father’s groggy reply.

“Bassfest 2013!”

Anyone who has met Kyle knows there is no shortage of clever comments and goofy remarks these days. A kayak, a lake, a wealth of largemouth bass, and a little purple worm have all worked together to help bring back a measure of the joy and enthusiasm that people close to him would agree he had lost.

Kyle has probably caught his last big Wisconsin bass for a while. He will be attending Hawaii Pacific University in Honolulu, Hawaii this fall in pursuit of an advanced degree in the areas of Law and Diplomacy. He will find himself on the Island of Oahu where he can’t wait to go after the famous relentless fighting, peacock bass. Kyle is also well aware of the fact the state record largemouth in Hawaii is only 9 lb., 9 oz. and as every good angler knows there’s always a bigger fish out there!

Good Luck to Kyle, we wish him well……
