This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Review of the Stealth swim jig from Freedom Tackle – fishing.

Hi AMFisHers! This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is a review of a great product by Freedom Tackle Corp., which is their Stealth swim jig.

Swim jigs are quite unique baits themselves as they allow us to fish them various ways with various soft plastic trailers, but this Stealth version from Freedom Tackle is unique in itself as it has a swing motion to it, which other swim jigs do not have.

Their is some pretty cool technology behind the head of this bait, that offers all us anglers and fishing enthusiast’s something we have never seen before and nothing we have ever been able to use this way before. The hook can be removed from this bait very simply, yes you read that correctly, you can take the hook off this bait due to the specialized technology inside the bait head.

These baits has a brass chamber inside the lead head, which was designed this way to allow for more noise when the bait hits the bottom of the lake. Lead is quite dense and does not really make much noise at all to to it being dense, but this Freedom Tackle head has a hollow brass chamber that will give off noise in the form of a ping and clacking sound as it bounces along the bottom. Inside that brass chamber is also a unique curly arm like structure that is where the hook attaches to and can be removed from, making this a very versatile bait especially for kayak and shoreline anglers who are looking to travel with much less tackle.

Now why would it be beneficial to remove the hook off this bait? Well lets say the hook on your standard swim jig gets damaged or breaks, there is no way to replace that hook and the bait now becomes useless. If the hook on the Freedom Stealth swim jig for some reason break’s due to a band hangup or snag that causes too much tension/pressure on the hook(note: it comes with a very strong hook I might add.) it can quickly be taken off and replaced with a new hook so that bait is now a usable bait again!

Other benefits to being able to remove the hook off these bait are that you can pre-rig multiple soft plastics on extra hook that you have in your tackle and be ready to change that swim jig presentation in just a few seconds, this is absolutely priceless to us anglers! Say you are using the swim jig with a creature bait soft plastic bait on it and the fish stop hitting that bait, you can very quickly slide that hook and bait off the jig head and slide on that soft plastic swimbait that you already have rigged up on another hook. But this bait’s efficiency does not stop here, you can do this again and again quickly without damaging and wasting soft plastics due to pulling and putting them on and off the hook.

This is versatility at it’s best especially for all anglers who fish in small vessels like myself in my kayak, where battling space is a big issue as well as those fishing from shore, because a few of these Stealth swim jigs and a few packages of soft plastics can take you a long way creating 8 to 10 different baits from one, all while saving you money on soft plastics!

If you are looking for a great versatile bait with a lot of advantages to it, definitely take a good look at what Freedom Tackle has to offer, you will not be disappointed!

Hope you found this video helpful…tight lines!

My two day musky hunt is not far off now! – fishing.

Musky season opener is not far off now! Anyone else into hunting for these big boys and girls?

Be sure to stay tuned to my social pages as I will be heading out for a 2 day musky fishing adventure in just over a week, on a great little lake that holds some BEAST’S!

This is a fall musky catch from 2 years ago, very long fish that was not carrying a lot of body weight for it’s overall length.

This illusive fish species has intrigued a different side of the fisherman that I am, as I have always enjoyed all of life’s challenges and muskies do nothing but flat out challenge us to be beyond the best we can be as anglers to try and catch them!

There is a constant learning when you start fishing for muskies and that is the part that drives me more and more each season, putting in those lone 12 to 14 hours fishing days, making every effort possible to figure out where they are, how they want the bait and when they want to eat, all in all a very big task for the fish that is nicknamed the fish of 10,000 casts!

Eagerly looking forward to musky opener this year and this 2 day trip should be quite interesting as I am after the BEAST that I almost caught a couple of years ago right beside the boat, only major difference now is I am fishing for these TANKS from a kayak, which makes it an entirely new ballgame!

If you appreciate hard work that does not pay off all the time, consider getting into musky fishing because that’s exactly what it is. Casting small, medium, large and extra large baits all day long in various conditions, with heavy rods and reels that are needed to land these fish successfully is no easy task, especially after you have made those 10,000 casts with about 50 to 80 different baits.

From a fatigue factor it is flat out grueling physical and mental work, as there are so many different factors that come into play, ranging from dealing with very big baits with very big hooks, right down to the intense focus that is required from assessing which spots will be the most productive for you. All in all musky fishing has offered such an immense challenge to me, which explains why I got hooked fishing for them quite quickly!

This should be quite the adventure to say the least…tight lines everyone!
