Ice fishing!

So you think ice-fishing is kinda the real and coolest winter fishing thing, eh.?. Well, that`s what i thought, too. At least until today! And maybe it`s still true when you live in some remote areas in Finland. Ice fishing right here in the middle of the town really sucks!


First of all there are no fish! This is where continous readers might ask if i don`t get used to this with time. Of course i do - i run a fishing blog with a category “no fish at all” smart ass! ;-)

Much more annoying then the absence of fish are all those pedestrian with their shitload of funny questions … uhm, i still don`t get their kind of humor. “Are you fishing?” “No ma`m we come from planet Mickey Mouse and search for oil. Can you help us?”

Get a life folks!

Lemmy, Micky & Phil did it again! About two weeks before the official release of Motörhead`s new album Motörizer SPV put up a widget on their website where all Motörmaniacs out there can catch a glimpse of what is about to come pretty soon. Great stuff!

Get deaf here.

Bumble Bee is not human - Bumble Bee is a machine

Right folks, today we here at the Tarakito headoffice are proud to announce that we got a brand new member in our team of professional fishermen and nerds. The mighty Bumble Bee joined the crew by the beginning of this year and since then has proven his skills in various US tournaments where he outfished American pros with ease using our secret underground lure techniques.

Right now Bumble Bee is on the way to Japan in the Tarakito Jet where he`ll meet up with several Japanese pros to teach them what he calls “The Real Style”.

So stay tuned for some serious “Bumble Bee in Japan” dude!

Holidays & Killers - everything is safe!

So, one week off finally! Holiday means fishing, fishing and … erm … yes, fishing! Today i tested the not so new Imakatsu Wind Killer Bill - man what an awesome little lure. Caught some really tiny pikes and perch up to 30 cm on this crazy little thing. This was rather a lazy but a good fishing day anyway. When the expenssive weapon got trapped in some branches it was time to put the home made lure safer to the test once again. This little toy is simply but absolutely effective. I`ll post some pictures within the next days.
