We would like o inform that on the first of June the production and sale of the pilk – the most technologically advanced artificial bait for saltwater fishing is officially started.


After fitting a battery in you have two types of joining rings to choose from. One with load capacity of 10 kg if you are using 20 kg fishing plait or 20 kg joining ring for 30 kg fishing plait. In case of trolling the pilk should be joined to the fishing plait with t stronger ring and the triple hook attached to the twisting cork which becomes a navigation fin. When placed diagonally or horizontally it causes accordingly deeper or shallower sinking as well as makes the pilk bob.

Our pilk has been tested on great sea depths. It has safely reached 450m below the sea level and at the same time undergone 50atm without any damage. The second time it has been tested we discovered that, unfortunately, it is not sharkproof because a blue shark was lured and caught on the bait and as a result we lost it.



General information about predatory saltwater fish


Most fish possess highly developed sense organs. Nearly all daylight fish have well-developed eyes that have color vision that is at least as good as a human's. Many fish also have specialized cells known as chemoreceptors that are responsible for extraordinary senses of taste and smell. Although they have ears in their heads, many fish may not hear sounds very well. However, most fishes have sensitive receptors that form the lateral line system, which acts as a sonar. The lateral line system allows for many fish to detect gentle currents and vibrations, as well as to sense the motion of other nearby fish and prey. Even though the sight is the weakest of the senses fish are not colour blind. Due to many chemical reactions including rhodopsin, called visual purple, the sight is possible and cod, salmon and bull trout are able to see commonly used red and blue baits. Surprisingly, above information is not useful when it comes to saltwater fishing since visibility at 40 meters and more below the sea level is highly reduced. In such conditions when a fish does not see its prey it relies on the sonar to localise and kill it.

It has not been proved to what extent fish use their hearing and smell in hunting. We know for sure that an attack based on the sight is always fast and successful, given the unlimited visibility. That is why, a colourful bait is crucial for successful fishing.





Because saltwater fishing is a specific type of fishing it requires adequate equipment such as pilks which are proven quality spoons for cod fishing and usually metal imitations of herrings and sprats. Most pilks have one or two triple hooks attached to them and are connected to the snell in a way to forbidden the fishing line to twin. A colourful lure is an additional advantage because it is possible to catch two fish at a time, if one fish goes after the pilk and the other attacks the lure. Pilks are available in different weights ranging from 150 to 350 grams (or heavier). Moreover, a variety of lures is on the market. Among them imitations of herring or sprat, which are typical food of cod, as well as latex rippers and twisters that are attached to a short side strap above the pilk.

Polish Angling Association is a fishing authority in Poland. One of the fishing regulations established by PAA states that cod and other fish that belong to the Gadidae family are to be caught using either a pilk with no more than two triple hooks or a pilk with one triple hook and one lure on a side strap or a set including two lures and a sinker. According to the regulations a diameter of a triple hook cannot exceed 3.5 centimeter.

The novelty of our pilk is the idea of fitting a source of luminescent light inside a pilk which increases its visibility on great sea depths and provokes an immediate attack.

The innovative pilk is a metal spoon with a light-emitting diode (LED). What is more the diode sends electromagnetic waves which are detected by the lateral line system of a fish and attract it to the bait even stronger. The strength of the waves is adjustable depending on the species we are fishing for. The crucial thing is that these pilks lure mainly adult fish. It is important because once pulled out of deep water the fish is basically dead due to the caisson disease despite its size.

The pilk is joined with a triple hook by a joining ring which breaking strength is lower than that of a fishing line. In case of any problems we loose only the hook and avoid polluting water environment. This specific kind of pilk does not require using any additional lures or expensive conventional fishing reels. It is made of technologically advanced materials, such as odourless and tasteless resin which shrinks and expands according to the water pressure and can be used on 250 meters below sea level maximum. Every new pilk is tested in a pressure chamber by its manufacturer before it reaches a buyer. Our pilks are manufactured in Poland, all of them have serial numbers engraved and are protected by patent law.



Most common questions


Is the pilk effective?

I will answer in this way: having the pilk, any plk, does not guarantee successful fishing, some skill and knowledge is required too. However, our pilk is efficient to an extent that allowed us to market 5 thousand items (4 types) in Poland and 10 thousand in Scandinavia in 2008. We also plan to keep the sale on this particular level in the following year. We hope that our pilk will dominate the fishing bait market in few years time.


Does the water depth we fish in matter?

         The general rule is that the deeper we aim to fish the heavier pilk we need, however, the unavoidable sea currents have to be taken into consideration. That is why, not only the weight but also pilk’s shape and hydrodynamic features are so important. Our pilks, compared to other spoons, characterize with slight resistance when put into water. It means that a 250 gram pilk can be used to fish on 30 meters as well as 100 meters. Plus you do not have to carry kilograms of metal.


Is it true that cod is attracted to noise?

People believe that when this particular fish hears the noise of the bait, usually metal one, hitting the bed of the sea, it is encouraged to prey and, in result, to be caught. However, cod do not feed only on the bottom of the sea, like flounder for example, but its territory reaches up to 5m above it. What is more, the bottom itself is usually very muddy so making any noise down there is a wishful thinking.



What do I need besides a pilk?

         It is advised that when you reach the fishery you immediately cast with a fishing rod and a pilk (the first person to do it has most chances of catching a fish) then listen carefully to the skipper who informs about the actual depth and the leeway. If the depth is e.g. 60 meters and leeway is 3 you should use a 300 gram pilk then lift and drop the rod energetically. Noteworthy, our pilks have extraordinary hydrodynamic shape which allows for quick sinking and does not require a lot of strength to manoeuvre. Personally I advise to equip yourself in an Abu 10000 CL reel and a Fenwick 880 MC-E FSO rod. Both are best for handing as well as trolling and make fishing extremely enjoyable.


How do I know I caught a cod?

         It is simple. If you try to lift the rod up you will fell resistance, some shaking and faster heart beat. It is a fish for sure.


It often happens that when we reach the fishery only few people catch something. Why?

It is common because fish are extremely skittish animals and the number of people on the boat, which can sometimes reach 30, does not help. Bear in mind that all the people cast with their rods at the same time.


Where are the best fisheries?

         The deeper water the better. I recommend Władysławowo and Hel.


What happens in case of trolling?

         It is not necessary to use any weights. It is enough to adjust the speed of the boat to the pilk which is in use, in this case 300 grams one.
