The Fish Strike Difference

For us, the Fish Strike was born out of necessity.  There were other bite alarms and strike indicators on the market, but none of them had the versatility to tackle all of the different kinds of fishing that we like to do.

Strike Indicators Pros/Cons
Fishing Bell

Fishing bells have probably been around since the advent of the fishing rod.  They work great in some situations and we have certainly used them in the past.  You can't beat the performance for the price.  However, they have some drawbacks well.

  1. They only work in calm water...unless you are going for the bell choir effect.  This rules them out completely for trolling or fishing in any significant current or windy conditions.
  2. When fishing multiple rods, especially at night, it can be difficult to determine which rod is getting a bite initially.  Especially with the advent of barbless hook fishing this is time you don't have at the strike.
  3. They aren't particularly loud.  You could easily sleep through a strike.
  4. They end up in the water.  Even with a safety line we seemed to donate several a year to the deep.
  5. They attach to your rod.  After spending a small fortune on a high end rod and reel do you realy want to clamp a $5 bell onto it?  In the heat of the moment you can easily slack your line trying to remove the bell or refer to number four.
Rod Mounted Alarm  There are a number of rod mounted alarm systems on the market now.  Most are inexspensive by comparision to our alarms and they vary in complexity from a plastic clip with bells and a chemlite to units with motion detection of the line or rod tip.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What type of battery does it use?

The Fish Strike uses a L1028 12 volt battery available from us or you can usually find them at any hardware or big box store with a decent battery selection.  

How long does the battery last?

The Fish Strike doesn't have an on/off switch and it only draws on the battery when the alarm is actually going off.  Even with frequent use we typically get several seasons out of a battery.

Will it fit brand XYZ of rod holder?

The Fish Strike will fit most commercial and homebrew rod holders.  As long as there is a flat surface at the bottom face of the rod holder then it will usually work.  We have tested the unit with most models of Scotty, Fish On (Tempress), & Folbe rod holders.  Units that clamshell fold or that have an opening at the bottom front of the rod holder may require some modification to work.  The alarms will also work with pvc or aluminum pipe type bank rod holders or rocket tubes on boats.

I fish for (species of your choice)...will the alarm work for me?

More than likely, yes!  We have people all over the world using our alarms for a wide variety of species.  Here in our back yards we routinely use them for catfish, kokanee, salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, trout and more!  We fish from the bank, anchored in a boat, trolling and trolling with downriggers.  The alarm sensitivity can be adjusted from mere ounces up to 20+ lbs.  Our way of thinking goes like this...if you have a rod holder of some kind on your boat or at your favorite bank hole, then you probably intend to use it.  If your rod isn't in your hands, then you can benefit from one of our alarms.
