How Fishing Crazy are the Freaks?

Being Called The Fishing Freaks is a name we live by and we are absolutely nuts about Fishing. Here is a video of one of the Freaks showing his undying love for the sport and proving just how freaking crazy he is about Kayak Fishing.

Rattler Series

Now i am very skeptical when it comes to Plastic Lures and the makes that i buy and i will always buy the more expense lure because i know i am paying for quality and that the lure will swim correctly and most importantly CATCH fish!

The Kingfisher has come out with the Rattler series of trawling lures and we have been lucky enough to test them out!! They come in different sizes, swimming depths and  great colors , they all come equipped with VMC Hooks and the best part!!! They catch FISH!!! I have been Trawling the blue 150mm length 3m diver and i have been hooking into the Yellow Fin Tuna.

So I , Dick give these affordable lures the thumbs up ,they have a great swimming action,they catch fish and they don’t put too much of a dent in your wallet. So get down to The KingFisher today and go chose your favorite colors and sizes in the Rattlers Series.

The Fishing Freaks S01 E08 “not the end”

It’s finally here!

 

First off our deepest apologies for taking so long to bring you this episode. I won’t give too much away but we do explain why there has been a “drought”. This is the final episode of Season 01 of The Fishing Freaks BUT not the final episode of The Freaks! There will be many many more to come, only in a different format.

 

Looking forward to Season 02, Dick and I (Wez) will be doing Web Series instead of a weekly adventure diary. We will be heading out on tour to find you the best accommodation, awesome fishing destinations, tasty recipes, meet some locals and the usual antics you’ve come to appreciate.

 

While we’re not on tour we have setup this awesome blog to keep you in the loop with all things Freaky & Fishy. Here we will do product reviews, post some recipes, weekly catches (if any), your catches and more! If you’re not on here you should definitely like our Facebook Page or drop us a mail thefishingfreaks@gmail.com

 

Until the next installment, tight lines and keep those comments and messages coming 🙂
