Met Branden from Bust'em Baits today at the Berkley Striper Club's annual Fishing Flea Market. They offer a new, interesting and uniquely designed soft bait in various sizes and colors, that are full of fish attracting action. I had to purchase some and I'm looking forward to giving them a try.

He is based out of Maryland so, I had to mention , and he had good things to say about Stackfish's own Jimmy, whom he said he met at a show sometime back.

He stated that they are trying to increase their territory, which is why they are up north on this 20 degree NJ day. As we spoke of fishing along the Outer Banks , where they say they catch alot of fish with their products, images of the NC Stackfish Crew popped into my head, along with memories of me fishing there, the windiest place I've ever fished. Amazing how fishing can connect people far and wide.

About Fishin Dude
A little about me
I was born and raised in central NJ. My earliest fishing memories are catching Panfish with a cane pole, followed by Catfish with an old Zebco enclosed push button reel on a 3 ft pole using hotdogs as bait. Alot of time has passed since those days. I now travel to fishing locations by car, boat, or aircraft, instead of bycycle or a ride from my parents. I have met and swapped stories, tips, laughs, and tears with a variety of fishermen worldwide, from all walks of life, and made great friends too.

I will fish for anything, anywhere, anytime.

I'll actually fish for anything that swims, crawls, or even rests on the bottom , in any water, anywhere, anytime.
Bunker Chunks
When fishing Bunker Chunks for Stripers and Bluefish, I cut them into 4 sections. The head, fished on the bottom usally catches big stripers
Whiteleggers for Tautog
One of the best baits for winter Tautog fishing is hands down the Whitelegger crab. Fished whole, half, legs on/off, bite changes day by day
Green Crabs
Green crabs are a great, inexpensive bait that catches many species. Generally used for Tautog, I used them for Seabass, Cod, and Pollock.
I love vintage Penn Reels
I own alot of tackle, both modern and vintage, and fish with both. Old Penn Reels are my favorite, and if it's a lefty, even better.
