Buying Fishing Gear For SHTF
Please Rate This Article

While my wife and I were doing our Sunday shopping at the local china-mart, I went to the sporting goods section to look at the fishing supplies.   Choices, choices, so many choices.  Should I get some perching supplies, or stuff for catfishing, bass fishing,,,,,.  Do I want supplies for artificial or live bait.

A lot of survivalist stockpile freeze dried foods, food in mylar bags,  canned goods, seeds for a garden and ammunition for hunting.  One thing that I do not see talked about a lot is fishing supplies.  Maybe fishing supplies is a given, that everyone should have fishing supplies stockpiled, or maybe its overlooked by a lot of people?

Stockpiling fishing gear for SHTF

Fishing supplies bought today:

1.  Zoom artificial lizard, 6″ long, cotton candy color – for bass fishing

2.  Eagle claw hooks, box of 40, size 1/0 – for catfish, noodles and trot lines

3.  Water Gremlin split shot weight – for perch fishing

4.  Eagle claw Barrel swivel with interlocking snap, size 5 – for catfishing, trot lines and jug lines

The supplies bought today cover at least 3 different types of fishing – bass, perch and catfish.

The eagle Claw 1/0 hooks can be used on a rod and reel, trot line, or jug line. If your out on a camping trip, the hooks can be used to fish off the bank, or make up some trot lines or jug lines and set them out overnight.

Now its time for a couple of videos.

In this video lets look at making some noodles, which are like jug lines. After making this video, I revised the way I want to make the noodle lines, but a video about the new design has not been posted yet.

In this video a buddy of mine and I go on a 3 day camping trip on the Angelina River in December of 2010.
