Berkly Nanofil from our August sponsor - Kingfisher Designs

Not a Mono. Not a Braid. The Next Generation of Fishing line. NanoFil is made out of gel-spun polyethylene, much like a superline (‘Superlines’ is a general term that includes braided and thermally fused lines. These lines are specially manufactured to create the thinnest lines with the highest breaking strength possible). This ultimate spinning reel fishing line consists of hundreds of Dyneema® nanofilaments that are molecularly linked and shaped into a unified filament fishing line. Dyneema, The World’s Strongest Fiber™, gives this line superline type strength and our uni-filament process makes it feel and handle like a smooth monofilament.

Vinner Minners, made by Vinnerbaits LLC of Roselle Park, NJ, are hand-poured, painted, eyed, and dipped in clear plastic to finish, providing these soft plastic swim baits with great swimming action. When paired with our EWG hand painted weighted hooks they become a deadly and versatile bait that you cant live without. By changing up your retrieves you can key in to what the fish want at any given time. You can wake them on the surface, swim them through the thickest vegetation or even slow roll them for a lazy bite on the bottom. A fast retrieve puts all the action at the tail, mimicking a fleeting baitfish. A slow retrieve flops the bait from side to side, mimicking an injured / dying baitfish. Our Vinner Minners are offered in 3″, 4″, 5″, and 6″ with 10 new and improved colors to choose from.

Our Mustad Ultra Point EWG weighted / painted hooks are the only ones on the market that come in multiple Glitter Finish colors. They are hand poured, painted and glittered to have a durable jewelry-finish chip resistant coating to help keep them looking just as good as when you bought them.

The giveaway is a 19 piece kit pictured at the bottom of this article. The kit features twelve 3″ swimbaits, 6 red(glittered) painted/weighted hooks, and 1-Plano box.

These hook/swimbait combinations have caught just about every species of freshwater fish including; Largemouth, Smallmouth, Pike, Pickeral, Crappie, Perch, Hybrid Stripers, Trout, and Walleye.

May LOTM – The Uncle Manny Minnow by CatchemCaro Bait Co.

Comment at the bottom of this article for a chance to win this 6″ Uncle Manny Minnow wake bait.

The Winner has been chosen. George A. from Lebanon, NJ (aka gbamas) will be receiving his new lure in the mail.

Uncle Manny Minnow - Wake Bait from CatchemCaro

CatchemCaro baits are completely custom, hand-made from poplar wood and dressed with all stainless steel hardware. The lips are hand made from Polycarbonate and each bait is hand painted and protected with two coats of an epoxy clear coat finish. Each bait is tested by CatchemCaro owner Rich Caro at Spring Lake, CA near his home, to ensure they all run true before being packed to ship all over the globe.

This month, RoundValleyFishing is giving away the Uncle Manny Minnow wake bait pictured above. The Bait is named after Rich’s uncle Manuel who was a very big inspiration in Rich’s fishing and family life. The 6″ Uncle Manny Minnow wake baits come in 18 fish catching colors. Each bait has two coats of epoxy clear coat. They also do custom paint jobs. The wake baits have all stainless steel hardware, 40# split rings and #2 VMC extra sharp treble hooks.

The Uncle Manny Minnow will push a HUGE wake when retrieved very slowly on the surface. These make awesome night-time baits, but any time when the topwater bite is on, cast out, let the bait remain motionless for several seconds then begin a very slow retrieve keeping the lure on the surface. In Round Valley, big bass will more than likely see this as a trout in distress and move in for the easy meal.

You can also speed up your retrieve and the Uncle Manny Minnow will dive down to 3 or 4 feet. Whether letting the bait float motionless at the top of the water or ripping it, the lure mimics a fish that is having a very bad day!

18 colors to choose from

April LOTM – The Binsky by Fish Sense Lures

Comment at the bottom of this article for a chance to win a free Binsky Blade Bait.

All emails have been sent and this month’s giveaway is now closed. I want to congratulate Mike, STEVEO, Kevin and B.Tardo for all winning Binsky Blade Baits!

I am an avid Bass fisherman but first and foremost I am a fisherman. Unfortunately, being here in New Jersey, the winters can be brutal and brings ice to pretty much all my regular fishing holes. For the past few years instead of residing myself to the indoors and thumbing through fishing catalogs creating wish lists I have turned my attention to Round Valley and its abundant lake trout fishery. It is an interesting change of pace from my normal fishing quests during the year. The RV trips were so rewarding it even enticed some of my fair-weather fishing buddies to join the fun.

The lure of choice is The Binsky,a lure made by Fish Sense Inc., a company I am proud to be a part of.

The Binsky - available in gold and silver

The Binsky was created on the theory of strikes by recognition. The vibration of the lure is a trigger for a fish’s natural instinct to prey upon vulnerability. Vulnerability is huge, it shows a fish that its efforts and expending energy are most likely going to result in success. This is especially key for species that become lethargic in cold water temperatures. It’s all about presenting that ultimate feeding opportunity and The Binsky does that very well.

Always have a game plan. Before I got a little bit of knowledge of RV under my belt I looked at a map and marked some areas that I wanted to fish during the day. I’ll look for ledges, humps, and bottom structure such as timber or foundations. At the ramp, I take notice of other variables such as wind direction, which may make me fish certain areas first like wind blown points. One of the biggest mistakes anglers make with the Binsky is poor time and water management. They tie it on and just start fishing the whole lake in a circle. Fish with confidence, look for where the fish SHOULD be based on seasonal patterns. Figure out the high percentage areas and move from spot to spot. Especially during the winter, fish will set up in “wintering holes.” Discover a few of these on your home lake and you should find the fish active in one of those areas trip after trip.
