Perhaps people had a stockpile of them already? Or the sand eel run of 2011 had people looking for heavier and longer casting needlefish? Maybe people just forgot about them? Its always hard to figure fisherman out.
So, I was really excited when I opened my email last week and found an email from a gentleman looking for more 5/8 oz. needlefish. He shared a few pictures and put up a post on a messageboard about how he likes to fish this needle. I was really enthused because he fishes them in a different way than I do, so I had something to learn.
So instead of telling you a few of his tricks, I will just let him do it. Head on over and read "Do the Choopy"
