Finicky Fooler Hooksetters
« on: Nov 16, 2022, 08:42 AM »
Have any of you tried the finicky fooler hooksetter rigs they came out with? I love the classic foolers, just curious how the hooksetters are. Considering ordering the conversion kits. Thanks! KP

I have had the foolers for 5 years and love them. @ years ago I got the fooler 360 as it is much easier to set and catch with. I had any auto setters as all it reminds me of is my dad hooking the fish and handing me the rod! The hook setting is one of the  biggest thrills of ice fishing, anyone can reel in a fish already hooked for them!

I made 2 of these last year at $10 each. I use a small bell on the rod tip as the strike alert. Works great.

You're welcome. I glued all the pieces together except the side extensions. Fits nicely in a soft rod case with the rods.

Made two of them, pretty similar to yours with a few small mods. Looking forward to trying them out! thanks again

That is a really ingenious idea.  Might have to look into making one.
