Fishermen Can Maneuver Around Obstacles Eliminating the Need to Recast

NORTON, OH (July 2009) — BulletBobber castable planer boards are a welcome addition to any fishing tackle box. This patented device is engineered with two keels and wings to provide directional control. Fishermen can quickly change the direction of their bait or lure with the flick of the fishing rod. The right-to- left motion of the BulletBobber fishing bobber provides a natural movement and presentation. You have to see it in action to begin to understand the new possibilities for enhancing your fishing and ability to catch more fish. Check out the videos at http://www.bullet-bobber.com.The BulletBobber fishing float’s direction-changing ability allows fishermen to steer around structure, docks or weed beds. By reducing the need to cast, lures remain in the strike zone longer allowing fish more time to grab your bait. The technique is easy to master for novices, fishing guides and professional fishermen alike.

The BulletBobber fishing floats can use the current like a kite uses the wind. You can “Set It and Forget It” because it will hold position like a kite. Changing and churning currents will give a lure action all day long.

Families with young fishermen will quickly learn to appreciate this new invention. It reduces the need to cast – reducing birds’ nest untangling time and potential hook injuries. Kids will love making the BulletBobber flip over and change direction and color – and being able to do it themselves.

The BulletBobber works well with most fishing techniques and locations.

  • Live bait or lures
  • Rod and reel spinning and casting
  • Can be rigged as a slip float.
  • Works for all species of game fish.
  • Kayak, Canoe, and Powerboat; Troll, Drift, or Cast
  • Shore or bank fishing
  • Dock and Pier fishing
  • Fresh Water and Salt Water

“The new BulletBobber invented by Paul Lieb in Ohio has me excited. It offers the angler unlimited possibilities to use not only live bait, but also artificial lures. I am now convinced the fishing world should know about this fish catching secret weapon,”  says Johnnie Crain, retired pro Bass Tournament Fisherman and Midwest fishing writer.

The two-toned translucent orange/green BulletBobber is offered in four sizes – small, medium, large and extra large, priced from $2.50 – $8. A combo pack with one of each size is available for $16. BulletBobber provides recommended lure size/weights for each BulletBobber size for optimal performance. Easy to understand standard rigging instructions are included in each package. Glow sticks are also available for inserting into the BulletBobber.

Elk Hunters Scramble Steep Slopes with the Irish Setter Trailblazer

Irish Setter Trailblazer #878RED WING, MN (July 2009)— Irish Setter’s Trailblazer is a mid-height boot addition to its popular line of all leather Elk Tracker hunting boots. This boot shares the proven combination of materials and special features resulting in a lightweight – yet heavy-duty – hunting boot with a lower height that allows for more active hunting. This waterproof, non-insulated elk boot is great for hunting environments that require scrambling and a wider range of motion.

“These boots help you conquer the rugged terrain you encounter when you’re pursuing elk. Perfect for scrambling up steep slopes”, explained Kyle Rackiewicz, product manager of the Irish Setter brand for Red Wing Shoe Company. “These boots simply eliminate an entire area where boots could rub against skin and cause a hot spot. They also allow freer muscle movement in the calf area, minimizing constriction on steep slopes when muscles are working their hardest. And because these boots weigh less, the return to camp is easier.”

The Trailblazer combines a variety of features which contribute to its comfort and durability. The genuine leather welt construction provides some flexibility with enough rigidity and torsion control for stability on uneven terrain. And the cushioning of the Comfort Cork EVA with Memory Foam and ScentBan Odor Inhibitor footbed comes standard on all models.

The Irish Setter Trailblazer retails starting at $129.99 and is available now at leading outdoor sporting goods retailers. Five standard-height Elk Trackers are available now in non-insulated, 200 and 600, and 1,000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra Insulation. The 600 gram version is also available in kangaroo leather.
