A Campingman NW Review of The Mighty Bite Lures Fishing System
To Catch Trophy Size Fish
To catch trophy Size Fish, you need a 'trophy quality' lure. You are about to read a review from someone who has actually used the Mighty Bite Fishing System and experienced what it can do.
Once you understand all there is about this system, would you then consider buying the lure?
Of course you would.
Most times, two fishermen fishing side by side using identical tackle and one will catch more fish than the other. Why? Presentation.
The Mighty Bite Fishing System WILL give you that presentation needed to catch fish.

The Mighty Bite System VS Top Baits or even Spoons
M/B as a Top Bait?
A lure is only as good as it's design and the Mighty Bite Fishing System lure is top of the line. In this review of the Mighty Bite Fishing system you will see (as an example) that it can be rigged as a Topbait for Walleye.
Top baits are all designed to be fished along the surface of the water, usually in or near the shallows. Personally, I have found the M/B Fishing System allows me to 'present' the lure in the same manner as a standard 'Top Bait' but with more success. To create a top bait, I use a weed guard hook, then insert a rattle and a scent stick. If the water is murky, I add a fluorescent stick. Simple.
Tricks I use:
I start by tossing in the shallows, fishing around the edge of the vegetation and if that doesn't work? I toss right in the middle of the vegetation working from side to side, front to back, retrieving the lure through the vegetation with maybe a bit of side to side motion with the rod tip or 'a slight jerk and stop' retrieve. All I am looking to trigger a 'strike' out of one of those fish who are hiding or resting in the vegetation.
Using M/B as a spoon:
To imitate using the M/B lure as a spoon? I rig everything the same as for top water bait but....I add the fluorescent stick for the 'flash' of a spoon. Then when reeling my line in, the flash will trigger the 'strike' from those lazy fish in the shallows.
Amazingly, this fishing system is so simple----it works.
What Is Luck Really?
You can catch fish on a windy day, when it's hot, when it's cold, in the spring, summer or fall, even when it's raining.
For example, did you stumble upon a freshly stocked pond one day and the fish were biting like mad, but NOT the next day? Whatever, the truth is: You can put more than just luck on your side if you change a few of your tactics.
In fact......you can catch fish most anywhere, most any time of the year or day if you try some new tactics. Simple tactics. Start with the Mighty Bite Lure.
The story of the Mighty Bite Fishing System is really quite simple. It works.
How to entice that 'Strike'
As fishermen and women, we ALL strive to entice 'The Strike.' A strike can be enticed in many different ways and with many different lures and tactics.
Just remember, "It's easy to catch fish when they're feeding in the spring and the fall", but what about the rest of the year?
It doesn't matter if it's day or night, hot or cold, they will strike if properly encouraged.
All fish will strike anything that moves when hungry or after spawning. The rest of the time they need to be enticed to strike. Whatever the season or the reason, it is our job as bonafide fishermen and women to incite that 'Strike action and behavior.'
There are five basic lures fisherman use so why is the Mighty Bite Fishing Kit System better?
The Mighty Bite System incorporates ALL five basic lures in one package.
"If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles" By Junius P. Long
I use everything I recommend
I never recommend anything I don't or haven't used. Nor anything that does not meet or exceed the manufacturers claims. That being said, these are my recommendations for a fishing system (Mighty Bite) that I use and consistently catch fish with. As always though, I leave it to you to decide what's best for you.
How About Comparisons?
Crankbaits are and remain......a popular lure.
To cover all uses for a crankbait would mean carrying a large variety of lures for the differing conditions, etc.
To simplify, most crank baits have a lip on the front of the lure to make them dive when retrieved. (most) The speed of your retrieve will cause them to dive and rise all in the hopes of a fish thinking the crank bait lure is a fish that has lost it's ability to maintain buoyancy, or so goes conventional wisdom.
The image to the right, is of a couple of Lee Sisson, Diving Big Sis crank baits. You can visually see the size difference in two identical lures. With variations of course, they are pretty typical of what is out there. Those variations include: articulation to the body to simulate swimming, rattles, lighted ones, big one's, smaller ones etc. To carry all of those different lures, takes up a lot of space. (that's why fishing retailers sell bigger and bigger tackle boxes)
NOT all Crankbaits work well
Now, don't misunderstand me, these lures do work, but I must preface my statement with this. Some can.....and do....trigger the 'strike' mode' in fish but the biggest draw back to these lures, is having to carry a dozen or so of them.. So, why carry a ton of lures to do the job that just one fishing system will do?
The MightyBite System
For fishing this system as a crank bait? it's really simple to change the presentation. (Remember that I said it's about presentation?) Well, here is why this Fishing System will catch fish as a crankbait when other crankbaits will not. Start with the basic lure and add a weedless hook, so that it can be fished in the shallows or weedy stretches. After the weedless hooks, add some swim fins and maybe a weight to help hold it down a bit. Finally, if the water is murky, add a fluorescent stick to make it visual to fish. So, to recap: " weedless hooks, swim fins, a weight to hold it down and a fluorescent stick to make it visible.
Add a rattle to make it heard and a scent stick to draw the fish in? Doing all of the above, utilizes all parts of the M/B Fishing System that will attract the fish senses. Sight, smell, looking like a baitfish and most of all? Sound, the fish can hear the bait. The lure can now be retrieved in exactly the same manner as a crankbait but with one big advantage.....Presentation.
All of this is just too much for any self respecting, predatory fish to ignore.
Mighty Bite vs Jigs and Plastics
Carry less equipment with you
'Jigging' is all about dropping your lure to the bottom and bouncing it up and down small amounts at a time.
Doing so either using the pole itself or with a modified retrieve, all in the hopes of trying to snatch up that bottom dweller. A lighted, weighted M/B Lure does the trick quite well, using a Carolina rig set up. It never fails to attract even in murky water. Use scent and light sticks to your advantage as well. See what works best for your conditions.
Instead of Plastics
Mighty Bite used as soft plastics, again add the weed guard hook on a Carolina rigged set up such as shown here, so that it can be dragged along the bottom or in those vegetation covered areas where fish hide. In this instance, choose the larger Mighty Bite Lure with it's obvious blood spot. The scent stick does everything the plastics do, it's just carry less tackle to have to carry fishing.
To recap, carry a couple of Carolina rigs already made up. carry this Fishing System kit with all of the add on's, to be ready for most any conditions. Topwater fishing, Deep Water fishing, Jigging, or even Plastics for those weedy areas and it all fits in a pocket size plano box in your vest,
You have everything you need with this Fishing System to be successful.
When to Use This Lure Around Vegetation
How to use it
Let's say it's the middle of an early spring day. In many places, maybe where you live, the water is still cool. so you will want to fish the shallows where the big one's will be hiding as they luxuriate in the warmer water along with the bait fish.
Conventional wisdom has it that if the weather is warm, so is the water. To catch fish, fish in deeper water. That's good advice, but isn't always true. Bass as an example, like waters 65-70 degrees or so and if there are bait fish for them to feed on, they will be in the shallows too. One important thing to keep in mind....water clarity will affect your presentation. If it's murky, the fish won't see your lure. Or can they? Don't change lures, add the light stick.
Everything necessary is included in the kit, all that is left is presentation, which brings me back to my original statement: "Two people fishing side by side, using the same lure and one person catches more than the other because of presentation.
I want to use every advantage when I'm fishing and this Fishing System gives me that advantage
Now that you know of the Mighty Bite Fishing System would you try it?
Fishing with the Mighty Bite Lure
Now you know the advantages of the Mighty Bite System, so one question remains. Is the Mighty Bite Fishing System the 'ultimate' in fishing gear? No. But it comes darn close.
I really like that picture. You can see the size of the bait fish that bass is going after. Never be afraid to use a larger lure.
I feel that the Mighty Bite Fishing System provides me that 'Advantage' over other products on the market. Seriously, ask yourself: "If you could buy and use a lure to help guarantee you to catch more fish each time, whether it be Bass, Walleye, Trout, Crappie, Blue Gill, Muskie or just about any fish, would you give Mighty Bite a try?
Why would you ever use anything else?
Buy the Mighty Bite Fishing System. Make a believer out of yourself.
