JawJacker Giveaway!!!

JawJacker
JawJacker Ice Fishing!

Many of you may not know what this contraption is, but hopefully after reading this it will be on your wish list!  What you see above is called a JawJacker which is an ice fishing contraption with the purpose of making good ice fisherman great!  The way it works is explained and demonstrated thoroughly on this video from YouTube.

See them in action!
JawJacker in Action!!!

When I used these for the first time myself, it shocked me how easy they were to use!  I will admit, I was worried looking at it and wondering if I would set it up wrong with all the different adjustments such as the rod height, the trigger slide, and the trigger tension.  After getting it out of the box and playing around with it, I realized that all of these adjustments are extremely simple and self explanatory.  If there is any confusion on how to set it up, there are step by step instructions on the back of the JawJacker box.  I headed up to the lake Friday morning to give these a shot in hopes that I would have some good luck.

In Idaho, we are able to use 5 poles which can be hard to monitor all 5 poles at once.  With my poles in the JawJacker, I didn't stress about looking around constantly checking to see if my poles were getting a bite or not.  This made ice fishing so much more relaxing and enjoyable because I was able to sit and jig one pole while all my other poles were being "monitored" by the JawJacker.  It wasn't long until I got some action on the JawJacker and the only words I have to say about my first experience is that these things work!

I was able to catch some great fish using these things and had a blast every time one went off.  I would be in the middle of a conversation and then hear the sound of a JawJacker go off and my adrenaline would rush in anticipation of what would come next.  There were a few times when the JawJacker would go off, but fail to hook my fish... I was a little frustrated and thought that there was just a little fish messing with my bait.  Then I remembered a tip which was also on the back of the JawJacker box which said that if you are getting bites on the JawJacker but not having many hookups, then try to downsize your bait.  I thought what do I have to loose, so I gave it a shot... Sure enough the next time the JawJacker went off the fish was hooked and the rest was left up to me to get that fish on the ice.

My dad and one of his fish of the day


My dad and I spent about 6 hours on the ice and caught almost 50 fish.  There were quite a few people fishing around  us who kept saying that the fishing was quite slow.  In respect to them, the fishing was quite a bit slower than what it had been for them a few days earlier.  They were catching a few fish here and there, but the fish were not biting very hard for some reason this day.  Those next to us would run from pole to pole because they would see a fish was nibbling on their bait, but by the time they got to it the fish was either gone or it was not interested in their bait any more.  I would not say that we had more bites than the other fisherman around us, but the difference was that when we were getting bites, we were mostly always hooking up with a fish because of the JawJacker.  A few of these people kept asking us what we were using for bait and we were open and honest about what we were using.  To their disappointment, it was the same thing they were using, but we were catching more fish.  I would definitely say that the purpose of the JawJacker, which is to "make good ice fisherman great," was fulfilled because the only difference between us and the other guys was the JawJackers... AND... about 30 more fish!

When we decided to call it a day and pack up, the JawJackers collapsed very compact and simple so that they were easy to pack on and off the ice.  They are also secure so that you don't have to worry about any part of the JawJacker getting caught on something and breaking off.  My personal favorite part about the JawJacker is that you are more likely to catch more fish with them than you are without them.  In my opinion, the more fish you catch, the better chance you have of catching a big fish! The great part about this day is that my thoughts were confirmed because the last fish we pulled in for the day was this great trout!

My Catch of the Day! 
 I would 100% recommend the JawJacker to anyone who enjoys ice fishing, or is thinking about getting started in ice fishing.  You do not have to be a professional to run one of these contraptions, and they are worth every penny.  Honestly if you see one of these things work you will realize that they are worth it!
