Bait Scissors

Post by Miles » Fri Sep 16, 2016 4:15 pm

Last season, i was doing the obligatory tackle shopping at Seaport and came across these bait scissors. I've been using the Berkeley brand of bait scissors, but since they've been discontinued, i've been looking for a replacement.

After a full season on the boat, with-out it being washed or cleaned, it worked extremely well! I simply HAD to clean it properly before i took the photo's, so as to show the condition it was in under all that dirt and surface rust.

After a FULL season in the salt water environment, this is what the scissors looked like:

Blades are still sharp, cuts bait and mono as well as flourocarbon easily. My only issue was that the locking mechanism had seized up and after washing it and adding a few drops of lubricating oil, she's working perfectly again.

All in all, seems like really good value for money, considering the bait scissors costed me under R100 and survived an entire season on the boat. I'm definitely getting me a few more for Dr.Fish!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
