California angler develops product
to be used with Power Bait and other dough baits
15, 2006 - Dave Thompson, an avid angler since he was just
a small boy has invented a new tool anglers using Power Bait
for trout and crappie will be anxious to use. In his over 40
years of fishing he has become quite skilled at fishing and have
caught nearly every specie of game fish available to him in Northern
Several days each year he likes to get away from the valley and
find himself on one of the many mountain reservoirs pursuing
the many trout species that they have available.
"I have come to learn that the most common
and most effective bait used for our most abundant trout (planted
Rainbow) is Power Bait. I can safely assume that Power Bait is
the most popular trout bait on the market," Thompson
has used a lot of Power Bait in his years and realized that removing
this stuff from the jars is a task requiring the skills of McGuyver.
You can use a stick, your fingers or a knife but these methods
are either primitive, messy, or hazardous to children.
He always wondered why nobody sold a small scoop to get the stuff
out of the jars and roll it into a small ball, much like an ice-cream
He searched far and wide, doing many hours of research
to find such a tool, to no avail. It is such an obvious idea
and yet unavailable to the trout fishing market. If he
had found one, he would have bought it. He thought that if he
would buy such a tool, so would many others, there must be a
market for it.
"I made the commitment to develop this product to my exact
specifications and have the item manufactured exclusively for
this purpose," Thompson said.
The "POWER SKOOP" by Thompson Manufacturing
is basic in design and yet extremely useful to all fisherman
that use any brand of the very popular dough type trout baits.
"I am extremely confident that the POWER SKOOP will be the
new "MUST HAVE" tool for nearly all users of Power
Bait and all other dough type trout baits. I also believe that
this tool will be as common in the fisherman's tackle box as
nail clippers and hook files," Thompson said.
The "POWER SKOOP" will be available at
Zeiner's Bass Shop in Wichita
for $2.99 around December 20 and can be ordered
online through their shopping cart.
"A customer of ours told me about the product
and suggested we get some," said Jim Zeiner. "I contacted
Dave and we have some on the way. It's so simple, but most good
ideas are. I think our customers will really like it."
