Kentucky Outdoor Adventures is proud to partner up with yet another innovative company, Floatback Lures. Floatback Lures has developed a transformational and disruptive technology that we believe will change the lure industry. Floatback develops lures where the hooks are not permanently attached to the lure, but to the line itself. This allows for the crank bait to eject from the hooked object allowing the lure to float back to the surface for retrieval. What does this mean? No more lost crankbaits when you get snagged on underwater structure. When the lure gets snagged, the hooks eject therefore decreasing the amount of valuable fishing time trying to unsnag the lure and saving you money on lost crankbaits.
When hooked on a fish, the lure ejects increasing the chance of a double hookup, which in turns doubling your chances of landing that trophy fish. This same action helps to prevent throw-offs when reeling in your fish. As the lure ejects from the hooks, the fish no longer has the ability to leverage the lures weight to throw the hook. This new technology should greatly increase your hook to land ratio, save you money on lost lures, and save you precious time messing with trying to retrieve snagged lures.
We are very excited about this technology and will be featuring their lures in videos and reviews over the next several months. Floatback Lures also made a big splash at iCast 2013 received lots of praise and feedback from FLW and Bassmaster Elite Series pros.
