Fishing product reviews and buying guides for making every fishing trip your best trip.

What is Baitstick?

Baitstick provides anglers with unbiased, independent, and in-depth fishing tackle reviews and buying guides. This site is a resource to anglers of all levels.

Baitstick is powered by a team of experienced anglers with decades of freshwater and saltwater fishing experience. Baitstick is simply for and about people who love fishing and powered by a team with a similar passion for fishing.

What makes Baitstick different?

Baitstick doesn’t accept vendor gifts or free samples. And Baitstick strives to be free from corporate influence in our fishing product reviews, assessments and buying guides. So Baistick supports anglers’ choice over decisions about what to buy and where to buy it.

We take fishing tackle reviews and buying guides seriously and hold product companies accountable for their products. And we hold ourselves to high standards of independence and ethics with our unbiased, independent, and in-depth fishing product reviews.

Baitstick applies a similar process to all of its fishing tackle reviews and evaluations, including:

  • Going through a similar buying process as consumers at different online merchants and national and local retail stores
  • Collecting data about products and services, consumer demand in the marketplace, and what our followers care about most
  • Scrutinizing that material, along with suggestions from our followers, to develop our testing protocols and schedule
  • Buying products at prices available to the general public and accepting no freebies or benefit from free manufacturer or retailer gifts
  • Inspecting product out of retail packaging and putting the product through in-field testing at various locations in the United States
  • Collecting results from field testing and summarizing in reviews and buying guides
  • Providing anglers with access to latest product reviews and buying guides, so they can make good buying decisions and choose on their own where to purchase

About California Proposition 65

Proposition 65, officially the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a law that requires warnings be provided to California consumers when they might be exposed to chemicals identified by California as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. The warnings are intended to help California consumers make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals from the products they use. The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the Proposition 65 program and publishes the listed chemicals, which includes more than 850 chemicals. In August 2016, OEHHA adopted new regulations, effective on August 30, 2018, which change the information required in Proposition 65 warnings.
