Sharkbanz Fishing Device - the Zeppelin

HOW TO RIG YOUR ZEPPELIN

Sharks use this sense to locate objects nearby, and it becomes vital when they cannot depend on vision alone. In the surf zone, the water is murky and people and sharks are sharing the same space. Most shark bites occur in these hard-to-see conditions. People are not on shark’s food menus, but when their electrical sense alerts them to potential prey in their area, they are likely to investigate. Remember: sharks don’t have hands, so they use their mouths to feel. This is why the majority of shark bites are “hit-and-run” attacks, meaning the shark bites, then quickly leaves after it recognizes someone isn’t food. Unfortunately, a simple case of mistaken identity can do a lot of damage. Sharkbanz warns curious sharks that the wearer is not food before they bite, reducing the risk of hit and run attacks. To find out more, ask at your local Tackle World store.

The Zeppelin is designed to be rigged for a variety of bottom fishing applications. There is no top/bottom orientation for the Zeppelin. The easiest method to replace your sinker with the Zeppelin.

The key to success is in the placement of the device in relation to your catch.

Attached the Zeppelin so the device will sit 40-50cm (18″-24″) below the tail of the target fish species.

Your device can effectively deter sharks at any depth. If you are using sinkers in conjunction with your Zeppelin, do not use steel sinkers. Use only lead or zinc sinkers.
