About Fish Sense Lures was established in 2007. It is the inherited passion from fellow anglers like ourselves that we use to create our products. We strive to bring innovative lures that will improve your catches and outperform the competition. The first of those is The Binsky, the hardest working blade bait on the market. With it’s superior vibration , 3D eye, and realistic shad design there is no predatory fish the Binsky cannot provoke into being at the end of your line.
President Stephen Carey is a lifelong angler spending time on the water fishing tournaments and keeping up with the evolution of today’s artificial baits. One of Stephen’s most noted accomplishments was being the first angler from New Jersey to enter a bass into the Texas Share Lunker Program in March of 2007. With ideas needing to be brought to light VP Eric Habrack came in with an unrelenting commitment to quality and the drive to become a progressive influence on the fishing community. From this partnership emerged a company and an attitude, Fish Sense, Inc. How does a successful day on the water start? With Fish Sense, it is a state of mind from which key decisions are made. Without a doubt when you have Fish Sense, YOU have the EDGE.
The Binsky is the newest and brightest star on the blade bait market. It has a realistic shad design and an unmatched hard vibration that cannot be ignored.
The key to this type of bait is to imitate an injured or dying baitfish.
Most anglers use these baits in deep water with a vertical presentation, but fishing them is shallow water or near the surface can also work well.
While the Binsky can be used all year round, it is most effective from fall thru winter and early spring. When water temperatures plummet game fish school up in tighter groups in deeper water. They also seem to travel less making them more reliable and easier to find trip after trip.
The Binsky is most effective in cold water it can be just as productive in the heat of summer. Game fish will do the same as in winter when water temps get increasingly warm in the summer. The fish will migrate to offshore structures and school up, often following schools of baitfish.
When fishing the Binsky:
Remember to mix it up a little. You can double pump the Binsky by using a smaller range of motion with shorter hops. Sometimes you may have to slow down your retrieve and take more time between hops. there are times when you might even need to allow the metal vibrating lure to lay on the bottom and just twitch it slightly. You can also fish it using a steady retrieve. The Binsky has a unique vibration capable of provoking any near by predators to strike.
“There are times that fish will react to a certain color more than others. With blade baits there is this perception that it’s only about size and the vibration from your cadence but color can absolutely make a difference so make sure you switch it up!”says Steven Carey President of Fish Sense Lures.
Up north, the Binsky fall smallmouth bite is unparalleled when it’s right, and it’s also fairly untapped. From October onward, many anglers start pursuing furry things instead of bass, and the weather deters others. The weather is simply too dicey. All that adds up to unpressured smallmouths that are about as fat and healthy as they’ll ever be and willing to eat if targeted correctly. Outside of the prespawn, there’s no better time to catch a big limit, and on places throughout the New England area, you can be looking at 100-fish days.
Steven Carey is as good at targeting early fall smallies as anyone, particularly in big waters of the Northeast, and he’s been on the forefront of the Binsky movement for smallmouths. However, one of Carey’s favorite cold-weather baits is far from new – the Binsky blade bait. In fact, it’s one of the best smallmouth baits around.
You can catch smallmouths on a lot of baits in the early fall, but one of the most consistent producers thru winter is the blade bait, and Carey is an expert with it. His go-to is the Binsky.
During real cold periods remember the fish will have a very small strike zone.
