  • ℹ️ Published 4 years ago

We are testing a 2$ fish bite alarm. This fishing product will alert the fisherman when a fish is moving your bait. This is helpful when you are fishing in the dark, or fishing multiple rods and cant give all your attention to one spot. We got it for a couple bucks from a Chinese website but I'm sure you can find it on Amazon! Watch this episode and decide for yourself it will be useful to you!

Our vision at Hey Skipper is to be the best source of helpful information to anyone who wants to get into the world of fishing! Help support our channel by visiting us on our website and downloading our Ebooks!

*Wow. **enjoyable.fishing** recommend I must say this rod has exceeded my expectations. Nice quality, budget friendly rod. May have to buy another one in the near future!*

I ve ordered 6 of those from AliExpress. They are pretty useful and loud. Especially where everyone uses bells, I didn't have to get up and check if it's my rods. I found that if I stick my rods up like you did, wind makes it go off. Best to keep your rods horizontal. My ones haven't effected by rain which is good. Only downside is if fish unhooks itself before you get to your rod, alarm continues. I d recommend it. It's cheap, won't take space, easy to use.

I have bought 30 of these over the years. I bought 4 at first them then people were always asking about that Alarm, and so I would give it to them and I gave a lot to my buddies. I use them 95% when I’m catfish fishing. Sometimes if you get a big strike, the line will pop off the alarm. And for windy days I tend not to use them, but if I do my rods are low to ground. I’d give them 4 out of 5.
LOUD !!!!
Barriers last long a good amount of time

Batteries are very bad to replace
Sometime you miss the strike or the line pulls but you won’t hear anything

Been using that for 4 years now it's pretty good but sometimes it is a bit annoying though because it's kinda sensitive 👍

Looks like you guyses had a good time. See if you can try out an alarm built into a rod stick.

You lean your spinning rod against it and run your line through the top of the holder and when the line moves your alert goes off.

Did you already made a video for the minnow/crab/shrimp/eel cage trap that you ordered last month? I bought one last week and it came today but I still havent used it yet. I was wondering if you can provide your insights of the item first before I use it.

Open it up and put some tape on the speaker. That will reduce the sound by about 80%.it will be loud enough to hear but not enught to be annoying. I have one and it works great.mine is a different version where it has a wire hoop and put the line thru.



The ones I had was kinda like yours but was a different and never had a issue got it from eBay

I live in WV! Ive never heard of that park. But I fish at a place called The Harris Riverfront Park. Its a popular place in my area to fish. I haven't been to the river lately because its starting to get cold and the river is on the rise. The park could be under water right now.
