Balloon Fisher King A Sponsor For 2014 OIFC / Jolly Mon King Classic

Posted on:

It’s that time again.  Schools of King Mackerel are now beginning to show offshore off the coasts of North Carolina and South Carolina so it must be kingfish tournament time.  Once again, Ocean Isle Fishing Center will kick-off the area kingfish tournament season with the annual OIFC / Capt. Brant’s Jolly Mon King Classic this coming weekend from June 26 – 29 in Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

The Jolly Mon King Classic is one of the largest king mackerel tournaments in the Southeast every year and this year is no exception with 250+ boat entrants already registered and still more expected before the weekend.

Balloon Fisher King balloon clips are commonly used by many kingfish anglers in the area for suspending “anxious” live bait under a balloon over bottom structure to draw frenzied kings to the surface to pick off an easy meal.  One of THE coolest things to watch is a hyped up kingfish skying out of the water to pounce on a live pogie, mullet or bluefish suspended under a balloon with nowhere to run (or dive).  Balloon Fisher King is very proud to again support the 2014 OIFC / Jolly Mon King Classic as a product sponsor.

OIFC Jolly Mon tournament operator Captain Brant McMullan had this to say about the Jolly Mon King Classic and Balloon Fisher King…..

“The King Mackerel are showing up just as the Jolly Mon is set to take place this coming weekend, setting the stage for a perfect storm fishing event “no pun intended- hopefully”.  As the Kings move over structure in the 50-70’ depth range, they respond well to anchor fishing while chumming as it stimulates competitive feeding amongst the Kings.  Floating live baits under balloons rigged with the Balloon Fisher King is a formula for Kingfishing success anytime, but this weekend it might be the formula to a victory in the Jolly Mon King Classic.”

OIFC is also a Balloon Fisher King dealer and carries plenty of Pro Pack 5″ (5 balloon clips + 10 5″ natural latex balloons) inventory which are ideal for kingfishing.

Balloon Fishing For Cobia: Enjoy Battle Without The Hassle

Posted on:

If you’ve never used balloons to fish for cobia, now is the time to start. You’re likely well aware of how fun it is to chase the species, which grow to impressive lengths and weights and delight anglers with at-the-surface strikes. But balloon fishing for cobia is one of the most effective and exciting ways to target the fish.

The Go-Anywhere Balloon Fishing Rig For Cobia

Aside from being one of the best fish as table fare on the planet, cobia are some of the gamest creatures to be chased anywhere. This explains why, during the summer months, anglers head out in droves to fish for them. Cobia—found from the Atlantic Seaboard to the Gulf of Mexico in the U.S., to South America, the African coast, Asia and Australia—are targeted by all manner of lures and baits.

But the most popular means of targeting the fish is with cut bait and live bait, which are ideal for use with balloon fishing rigs.

Since the fish are typically found near the surface during the warmer months, a balloon fishing rig is perfect for keeping cut bait or live pinfish high in the water column for hungry cobia. The problem typically posed by balloon rigs when chasing cobia is the fish are prone to taking long runs, making for quite a bit of hassle when an angler is forced to fight a balloon, swivels and such, in addition to the fish.

What’s more, as the fish gets closer to the boat and starts to jump and flail, the balloon can foul the eye of the rod, resulting in lost fish.

All Excitement, No Hassle

With the Balloon Fishing Clip, fishing for cobia with a balloon is anything but a hassle. 

Because the Clip, not the balloon, is fastened to the line, removal and installation of a balloon is a breeze. You simply insert the fishing line into the Balloon Fishing Clip’s line cavity, then insert an inflated balloon, and you’re ready to fish. Then, when you need to remove the clip, you press the line removal button and the balloon is free.

That’s it.

What’s more, the clip, which moves up and down the line to control depth, keeps your bait in the strike zone, no matter what depth the fish are hanging out in.

The clips are suitable for both freshwater and saltwater.

The Balloon Fishing Clip is available as part of the company’s Pro Packs and Starter Kits, both of which also contains balloons. For a complete listing of the company’s products, visit the website.

Balloon Fishing For Kingfish Will Never Be The Same With The Balloon Fishing Clip

Posted on:

Steele Park, a North Carolina charter captain, has plenty of experience with balloon fishing. He knows the benefits of fastening a balloon to his line, which allows him to keep his bait at the desired depth. He also likes that fishing with balloons makes it easier to place more lines in the water.

Unfortunately, Park is also aware of the negatives of fastening balloons to line, which includes the hassle of removing the tangles of rubber from the line after a balloon bursts.

So when Park had his first experience with the Balloon Fishing Clip, he was beyond excited. He saw it as money in the bank.

The Balloon Fishing Clip Simplifies The Process

“Before, when I was tying balloons directly to the lines, you had to worry about the balloons spinning (in the wind) while the boat was moving, so we couldn’t tie it on until we were ready to fish, and the (spent) balloons can be a pain to remove from the line,” said Park, who competes in kingfish tournaments. “This clip removes that margin for error, and when you one fish can be worth $50,ooo, any margin of error we can remove is helpful.”

The Balloon Fishing Clip is ideal anytime depth control is paramount, be that in freshwater or saltwater. It fastens to the line easily, requires very little effort to fasten balloons to and can be removed from the line just as easily.

Park, who primarily fishes with live bait, has found the Balloon Fishing Clip to be a tool that removes most of the hassles normally associated with balloon fishing, which allows him to concentrate on catching fish.

He likes to use balloons to put out multiple lines when slow trolling, a popular technique for those chasing kings. The balloons keep the bait—typically menhaden—in the strike zone.

But a major hassle in the past has been that the pre-rigged balloons spin around the line, causing tangles, as the angler searches for fish. The remedy had been to wait until he’d arrived at his fishing spot to begin rigging, something that can take 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how many rigs he has to set up.

More Time Fighting Fish, Less Time Fighting Balloons

It was a potentially expensive hassle.

“The more time you have in the water, the more chances you have for success,” he adds.

Now that he’s been using the Balloon Fishing Clip, Park is able to keep numerous rigs at the ready, and he doesn’t need to concern himself with removing those annoying pieces of twisted rubber from his line any more.

“The Balloon Fishing Clip really makes fishing with balloons a lot more efficient,” Park says. “Balloon fishing is now a whole lot easier with this clip.”

Balloon Fisher King Brings Added Excitement And Enjoyment To Kayak Fishing

Posted on:

Joe Hector’s first experience with Balloon Fisher King products was an eye-opening one. The kayak angler, who had never used a balloon fishing rig, was impressed with how easy the Balloon Fishing Clip was to use and how little time it took for rigging. More than anything, however, he’s now convinced that balloon fishing does away with a hassle plaguing live bait anglers chasing fish at or near the surface.

“People forget that you have a free line out … that the baitfish is really not on the top,” says Hector, a Pompano, Fla., angler and co-founder of  ExtremeKayak.com. “It’s like having a 3-pound weight on the line. There’s not many ways to keep him up.”watch King Arthur: Legend of the Sword 2017 film now

Balloon fishing has long been a popular option for anglers who need to keep live or cut bait off the bottom or at a desired depth. Attach a swivel here, a clip there, another clip over here, add a few beads, and you had your balloon rig. It worked, but it wasn’t easy or much fun to set up and fish. And each time a strike caused the balloon to burst, the set up had to begin anew.

Until now.

Simple. Easy. Effective.

With the Balloon Fishing Clip, set up and fishing with balloons is a breeze. You simply insert fishing line into the Balloon Fishing Clip’s line cavity, then insert an inflated.

That’s it. Simply bait and fish.

The clip, suitable for both freshwater and saltwater, takes all of the worry and hassle out of balloon fishing.

Small Change, Big Difference

Hector and his contingent are a brave lot, typically fishing miles from shore, where they encounter everything from giant kings and wahoo to sharks, swordfish, sailfish, tuna and mahi-mahi. While he’d never used balloon rigs before, he immediately saw their potential.

One of the biggest issues, he says, in chasing pelagics, is the fish are often active near, but not necessarily on, the surface, meaning the bait being used should ideally stay close to the surface as well. But baitfish being baitfish, when fished from a free line, will attempt to get away from the the surface, swimming down and away from predatory activity.

With the balloon fishing setup offered by Balloon Fisher King, that problem is a thing of the past. It works just as well for cut bait.

“Anytime you can simulate [keeping the baitfish near the surface], you’ll have success,” says Hector. “That’s a huge advantage.”

Balloon Fisher King Exhibits At The Big Rock East Dealer Show

Posted on:

RALEIGH, N.C.—Balloon Fisher King’s first trip to Raleigh for Big Rock East Dealer Show has been met with great success. The show, a bellwether for the upcoming fishing season, is one of the most comprehensive trade shows in the country, with thousands of attendees and exhibitors. And though this is the first visit for Balloon Fisher King, we have been impressed by the turnout and the response to our products.

The traffic at the booth has been steady, order writing has exceeded expectations and everyone who has seen our products—many for the first time—has shared positive feedback.

“Wow! This product makes a lot of sense,” said one Northeast dealer, referring to the balloon clip. “This is the coolest thing I’ve seen all day.”

Considering the size and scope of the show, such praise is anything but hollow.

Held by one of the nation’s largest distributors, the Big Rock East Dealer Show attracts hundreds of tackle manufacturers plus independent retailers from throughout the Northeast and South. The retailers come to purchase the must-have products for the upcoming fishing season.

Experts see the show as a litmus test of sorts for fishing tackle sales. The items that move well at the show are some of the first and most plentiful on dealers’ shelves, which is an enviable position no matter the size of your company. The show is not open to the public.

From what we’ve see so far, our products will certainly have ample space of dealers’ shelves. The event is still ongoing, however, and there is still much to be done.

Check back tomorrow to see what interesting nuggets we were able to pick up. For more information regarding Balloon Fisher King’s products, visit the site here.
