    Default Pocket Bait Caster

    Thought I'd try out a new fishing gear idea. I have not field tested it yet, but will let you know...

    That's simple and looks workable.

    I kept expected you to shake a hook right into your hand.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    The hooks are taped. I'm shocked that you would think I would stick myself with a hook......twice.

    I like the fact that you can store your gear inside it. The idea is called a Cuban YoYo but your version stores gear. They come in a variety of sizes.

    Very clever. The simple flick of the wrist there at the end doesn't seem so simple. I'd probably drop the whole kit n' caboodle. Or I'd fling it a foot away while the line got tangled up in my fingers.

    Don't feel bad...... I do that with a $500 rod and reel....at least you can do it inexpensively.

    Anyway, it's too bad you can't shoot fish....they die too quietly....just sort of laying the flopping around......

    At least you don't have to worry about doing things like Bill Dance.

    Thanks Crash, this thing is by far the best caster of any hobo or survival set up i've ever tried. That thing can get out there pretty far!

    That thing looks like it cast's great.....but what's pocket bait?

    Is it what you use for catching grass shrimp?
