Title: redneck jaw jacker/auto fisherman hook setter
Post by: Duneman101 on January 04, 2012, 11:21:19 AM
I know most of you don't do any kind of ice fishing, but if you jjig from a dock or set dead bait for cats this just may be a winner for you.  how it works is, you bend the pole and find the sweet spot for the parabolic curve meaning the tip of the pole in perpendicular to the trigger and all the the presuure is pushing out instead of up, when the fish hit the bait the trigger releases the tip of the pole and sets the hook.  I have been eyeing the jaw jacker and auto fisherman for quite some time now, but i didn't really like the price so i had everything but the trigger figured out and found some inspiration online...  i think it looks pretty good, i'll be putting it to use this saturday...  with this length it works perfect for my 24" medium action and 24" ultra light, i figure the medium for trout lakes and the ultra for perch.  i made three different triggers last night and figured out the longer the trigger the lighter the pull.  i filled the cross braces with silicon and sand for some added weight.  let me know what you think.
