New fishing LURE invention


fishing user avatarbruce9936 reply : 

I know the fishing  lures business is very hard to get in to. I know you have heard it before that Someone has a good LURE. Make no mistake guy I do. And it's nothing like it on the market. I been working on these type 3 yrs. I have come down to the last proto type. I have 40 working models. I did not won't to start a business. But can't find anyone that will look at them. All I won't are the normal royalties  now I even come up with the next generation of them. Iam getting some 3D scanned so I can get get on chromed. I need your information and what would be the next step. Trying to get funding for a patent. I down a patent search and was advised to get a design patent. Your thoughts.


fishing user avatarsoflabasser reply : 

Get the patent on your lure invention before you post the lure online.


fishing user avatarReel Guy reply : 

Good advice! I had a book published a couple of years ago but I had to do it by a self publishing company because in the book industry, you can have the best book in the world but it's a tight knit industry and you had to know somebody big on the inside. I know a well established author and he had a friend with a good book and couldn't get a publisher to look at it. Don't give up though. I hope it works out for you!

Mail me some, you're secret is safe  :ph34r:


fishing user avatarj bab reply : 

Yeah send me some too, you need proven field tests in order to get promoted ;)


fishing user avatarTorn Thumb reply : 

HA.


fishing user avatarbasseditor reply : 

good luck, is all I can say


fishing user avatartimsford reply : 

I'd call zman and find out what law company they used to help enforce their chatterbait patent and hire said company to file for the patent and protect it. Otherwise within a month,  luck-e-strike,  castaic, strike king, Berkeley,  and a slew of other companies will be making copies "tuned and designed" by the pros and luck-e-strike will file a patent blocking you from making your own bait like they did with the scrounger. 

Seriously though good luck,  and whatever you do, no late night infomercial because no serious fisherman will buy it after the banjo minnow,  helicopter lure,  or mighty bite fishing system. Although I own all 3 kits so I guess maybe a few suckers will truly buy anything


fishing user avatarflyfisher reply : 

First thing i would say is work on your spelling and grammar because if i got a message that sounded or read like the one you posted i would be laughing.

Good luck.....

Interesting ........

But welcome to the forums!

Social security number, bank account number, next of kin, and of course...mothers maiden name. If you post it here that would be easiest, that way everybody with an invention can use your info.


fishing user avatarBass Turd reply : 

Found this site the other day. Now they are a technology company. Maybe they can help you. Don't listen to the haters. America is home to inventors and innovators.  There is always a better way. Look at the Whopper Plopper. Everyone thought no new lures could be invented... ha.

fishing user avatarthefraz44 reply : 

Sounds interesting. I'd love to be one of the field testers, however I don't want to force myself.


fishing user avatarRogerLaPointe reply : 

I'm brand spanking new here and was just looking around when I stumbled in here. I know your pain and frustration . . .  no money and needing serious protection. I asked myself what I would do and I think the first thing I would do where you're at right now, would be to find a patent lawyer and document every possible thing you can. It all starts there, finding money is hard but can be had you just gotta be very careful and like I said CYA with a lawyer. Even big companies get careful when they see lawyers are involved, so that needs to be your first move. Good luck I seriously would love to see you pull it off.

I'm also not asking for some to look at a product I came up with either...oh and the grammar on my post isn't wrong but it could be better.  As far as capitalization goes, I was lazy typing the letter "I".

Whopper Plopper isn't a new lure. It was originally designed as a musky lure and downsized for the bass market, and Larry Dahlberg has a bit more credibility in the fishing word than the OP

Poe's Top Raider has been around much longer than the Whopper Plopper and I'm sure there are others before my time.  I even recall a show segment with LD dropping Poe's name. There isn't really anything "new" hitting the markets anymore.  It's a modification or tweak to something that has already been done.  That's why I don't understand when people get their panties in a wad over a newly released lure that are strikingly similar to another.  It's been happening for decades, it will continue to happen for ever.  

Now let's see this "new" invention...

Doubt he's going to post his new lure invention without getting a patent first.

I doubt theres anything new about it. 


fishing user avatarCody21w reply : 

Why so much negativity..? there's innovations to come that everyone but the inventor wouldn't consider or comprehend till they see it. Give the advice he's seeking if you have it and say good luck to the guy. OP: Goodluck!


fishing user avatarBaitmaker reply : 

Many years ago I designed these single treble blade baits with spin tails. These are prototypes made from 3/8" metal tubing. They work extremely well on a large variety of fish. For a hot minute I was thinking about getting a patent until I saw something very similar being made. I'm always thinking and trying to design a new bait or action that the fish haven't seen. It's healthy for the brain if nothing else. 

Good luck on your invention!

fishing user avatarNorthwestBasser reply : 

@Baitmaker looks like the La Bamba I picked up this season. Catches bass, walleye, tiger muskie... I must say I like body shape of your design better than what I bought. You should have pursued it, if you had some sort of proof or documents showing you were first you may have had a shot! but honestly I know nothing of patents and law and business sooo...


fishing user avatarSam reply : 

Bruce, many years ago I spoke with my brother who is an attorney about a simple hook remover that I was thinking of producing.

I also obtained data from the library on how to file for a patent.

Results:

1.  Filing for a patent is not easy. You may need legal assistance along with a draftsman. Go to your local library and look for a book on how to file a paten or check it out on the Internet.

2.  If your invention is successful the Chinese will copy it and flood the marketplace.

3.  You will not be successful if you sue the Chinese for the illegal production and sale of your patented invention.

4.  Patent attorneys can have high hourly rates.

Check out how to file for a patent and then decide if you want to continue your efforts by yourself or with an attorney.

Good luck.
