Default The Bait Stik

I saw this in my Forida Sportsman magazine. No more tangles with Sabiki Rigs, could it be? Just wondering if anyone has used them and if so how good did they work?

Had one that was similar...loved it. Used it ALOT. It did not, however, make your sibiki's last forever. If the bait went crazy when pulled out of the water tangles still happened. But, it did make it extremely easy to have the sibiki ready to go on a moments notice and very easy to store.

Great input! Yeah I understand crazy baitfish will still cause tangles but my biggest problem is the tangles caused by trying to put the Sabikis away or taking them out. I think it wold be great to have two of these on board so my son and I both had them ready to go all the time and they were easy to put away.

Sure enough, the expense of hunting season is overand the expense of the fishing seasonbegins!

They work great, I highly recommend them. My only small issue is when you use a large weight. You pretty much have to lay the rod down in the boat because it shakes like crazy in a rod holder while motoring.

I've seen them but don't think they would work.

They work to keep the sabikis from tangling when you reel them all the way in. If you are using the larger sized sabikis for hardtails or larger bait you will have to cut them in half, becasue the sabiki is too long to fit in the rod.

I personally do not likethem, because they arestiff. Not saying that you would like your bait rod to have any action, but it is just my preference.

As far as tangles they work good though.

I have two of them and love them. They are great for when you take out inexperienced fisherman. They usually catch the bait as I drive. They are stiff but I spooled mine with leftover powerpro and you can fill the smallest bait hit the rig. Very quick and easy to use. I have also used mine on the pier and they work just as good out there.

It's not a bad idea... MADMAX had one. They are very stiff.

I just got to the point of expecting to use a sabiki rig or two every trip and just throw it away nearly every trip. You have to trade off the price of the rod against the price of using sabikis. After all you loose a hook or two every time you use a sabiki anyway, so it'll last maybe 3 trips max.

At $3.00 or $4.00 each, I just plan to use on every trip or two and try to keep that small rod out of the way of everythong else (though it never works out that way).

I have several and love them. I have one too many that I will sell for a good price. Send me a PM if interested. I think it has been used twice. I just don't have a need for 3 of them, even during a tournament.
