TULSA, Okla. (Dec. 22, 2015) - Bobby Garland's new Dock Shoot'R Pull Tabs provide an easier, safer and more repeatable way to accurately shoot and skip crappie jigs bow-and-arrow style into small openings underneath docks and other low hanging cover where crappie often hide and other fishing methods can't reach.
Using a rod and reel bow-and-arrow style to "shoot" jigs into hard to reach fish hideouts is an effective crappie fishing technique. The new Bobby Garland Pull Tabs simplify the process.
Up until now, "dock shooters" had to rely on pinching and holding the jig's hook or head with thumb and forefinger of one hand while pulling the lure back toward the reel so that the rod is flexed like a drawn bow, then letting go of the jig to catapult it into the hideaway.
What has been a cumbersome technique mastered by only a skilled few because of the dexterity and timing required, the Garland Pull Tabs now make it possible for virtually any level of crappie angler to enjoy the fun and success of dock shooting.
The Pull Tabs are constructed from a lightweight, flexible material that is waterproof and tear resistant. The tabs provide a grip surface that is easy to hold and let go of, keeping the hand clear of the hook and allowing a smooth and consistent release.
To rig, the hook is inserted through the starter hole on either end of the tab until it "snaps" past the barb. There's a hole on both ends so product life can be extended by switching to the other should the fit become too loose on one.
The waterproof, tear-resistant Pull Tabs keep fingers clear of the hook.
