Wallingford, CT (PRWEB) April 8, 2007
A hot, new fishing lure that started in Costa Rica has created a real buzz among fishermen in the Far East and set a record for catching bass in Mexico. It's now flexing its muscles in the U.S. The lure can be found at the site of its U.S. distributor, http://www.ngcsports.com/r/pr.
It has out-fished shrimp bait in Washington state and beat top-selling U.S. lures three-to-one in Florida. The lure's technology is so effective that one state, Wyoming, has banned it. Canada may follow.
The breakthrough is a high-tech chip integrated into the lure's body that blinks blood red in time with its swimming action. It gives a perfect imitation of an injured prey. Fish are predators, so if a fish sees a smaller fish bleeding, it knows it's weakened and will strike. For years, blinking lures have been a secret weapon for many Alaskan salmon fishermen; however, their lures were often clumsy looking and had a very limited life.
Some fishing authorities, like those in Wyoming and Canada, think light of any kind gives fishermen an unfair advantage. This lure suggests they may be right.
Three fishermen using the lure in Mexico caught 650 largemouth bass in just 25 hours. That's 8.6 for each person per hour, and a record for the lake they were fishing. They said the bass struck with such ferocity they hardly lost a strike.
In Florida, two professionals fished for four hours from the same boat. One used the new lure; the other used some top-selling U.S. lures. The new, "bleeding" lure caught three times as many fish.
A Tournament fisherman on a lake in Florida tried everything in his tackle box and had no bites. He switched to the new lure, caught a bass on his first cast and had his limit in 45 minutes.
The lure, called the Bite Light™, lasts over 1,000 hours in the water and has a small ball in its head to keep it erect so it swims like a real fish. The ball's rattle provides another attractant. No battery replacement is required.
There are four designs: one for top water, a shallow diver, deep diver and a sinker that retrieves at any depth.
The lure comes with a money-back guarantee, is patented and -- despite its high-tech components -- is reasonably priced. It is not in stores, so to learn more about it, go to Ngcsports.com Leader in Scientific Fishing Lures, the site of its U.S. distributor.
