There are some other suggestions for the origins of the word "shark" but it seems this theory is the most logical. Before 16th century this fish was called "dog fish". It is still called dog fish in many regions of the world (like in Turkey) Arabic - qarsh Bengali - hāṅgara Burmese - ngarrmaann Shark in Chinese - shāyú Czech - žr

A Review for Jackson Artist Lure. I was looking for a different lure that must be sparkling and I can retrieve so fast to attract all kind of species especially right before sunrise and after sunset. It also should not rattling. Because places I usually go for spinning are rather rocky shores where it suddenly gets deeper and the big pieces of rocks lay at the bottom and most of those predatory ones hang around them and they attack their victims senselessly if something swims around them so fast. They are not much attracted to any kind of sound. They just want something getting wild like themselves. So, when I saw this beautifully designed sinking hard bait on Jackson Lure website , I knew it was what exactly I have been looking for! It looks so simple but when you handle it, it feels so different. Unique shape of tail, perfectly shaped lip, huge dark eyes in red head and super-shiny body makes Jackson Artist FR 105 absolutely perfect for my needs. It's 105mm, Sinking, 15g and

The movements and actions of a Megabass Cattle Tongue Lure under the water It is a plastic soft worm for both freshwater and saltwater fishing. It is a sinking soft plastic with a flat tail for extra movement. " Megabass cattle tongue plastic worm " is ideal to catch bass, perch , zander, seabass, snapper, bream, pike and all kind of species that live in sandy bottoms, rocks, weedy lakes and rivers.
