We bought this little contraption on EBay. My husband saw it and had to have it. It is a little plastic do-hickey that you basically thread your fishing line through after you cast out and set up your rod with a holder. The Quickset is designed to automatically set the hook for you when you are fishing.
Quickset can be used for any type of fishing; it can be adjusted to “go off” with even the slightest bites.
The Quickset is made of black plastic the “body” of it is about 3 inches long and about an inch wide, there is also a “lever” that is approxmately4 inches long, and has a thin black cord to attach to a stake.
My husband says he LOVES this Quickset and even I have to admit that it actually WORKS!! He likes the fact that when we used it in the river…he was able to adjust it so that the current did not trigger the Quickset…but when an actual bite occurred the Quickset DID trigger then.
It was very nice and convenient when we used it for cat fishing…you just set it up and go about your business, you don’t even have to pay attention…sleep if you like…the Quickset triggers and sets for you. You just have to pick up the rod and reel em in when you get a fish on.
NOTE…my husband did not follow the directions when he first used this contraption…so it didn’t trigger properly. If you decide to buy one of these…I suggest following the exact instructions! They are simple and easy to follow.
The best way for me to describe this product and how it works is for me to give you the link to the website that even has a video on it so you can see it in action!
We will say this…this baby really works! It’s been tons of fun! It’s great for all ages and all types of fishing. It has been an awesome addition to our fishing supplies/accessories. It was well worth the $4.95 each we paid on EBay for it.! We HIGHLY recommend The Quickset for anyone who loves fishing!
