Shotgun Shell Bobber's on the Shark Tank
Fishing Ammo - Season 4 - Episode 422 - 4/26/2013
The Shell Bobber was just featured on the Sportsmen Shopping Network last summer when it was compared with a traditional round fishing bobber. This super cool new bobber invented by Jeff Stafford, was made out of a shotgun shell and became an instant hit. Jeff thought they were prepared for the orders for their new fishing invention but instead the shell bobber's completely sold out within 5 minutes. I have to admit after watching this video, I never want to use one of those pain in the ass traditional bobbers again. Just the shear ease of taking it on and off your fishing line is definently worth the price to have a few of these in your tackle box.
Here's a one minute video that'll convince all hard core sportsmen they need to use the Shot Gun Shell Bobber. Yes, Fishing and Beer usually does make for the perfect fishing trip!
Fishing Ammo before the Shark Tank Update
If you are an avid sportsman that loves hunting as well as fishing, then this is a no brain er product you would be interested in. How could you not be interested in a product that represents two of your favorite outdoor activities? The fact this is also a superior bobber then anything else on the market is another bonus for getting a few in your tackle box. They also have the guys from the popular Duck Dynasty on the front page using the Shell Bobber's that leads to it's authenticity and mass appeal.
If I had to predict if the Fishing Ammo gets a deal with any of the Sharks, my money would be on Daymond John getting hooked on this outdoor product. From a few video's I've seen with Daymond, he has a very impressive collection of weapons that any collector would appreciate. I would imagine he also has a few shotguns to round off his gun collection. John is also an avid fisherman with some excellent fishing right in his backyard. He clearly has an interest in both outdoor activities the Fishing Ammo Brand represents which is always a good thing when your investing in ANY product.
Obviously, it'll come down to the numbers they put on this business and how much revenue's been generated. Selling over 5000 6 packs of the Shell Bobber's on the Sportsman's Shopping Network in 5 minutes clearly shows there's demand within the fishing community. Most likely they'll sell 10 times that amount when the Shell Bobber's are first seen on the Shark Tank Show.
This Is A Great Idea and one that I am going to buy a few dozen bobbers myself. A few for our tackle box and the remainder will be custom bobbers with our business logo and phone number for promotional reasons. The next time that customer is out fishing with his buddy's, you can be sure, the Fishing Ammo will come out of the tackle box (whether they are fishing with bobbers or not) and my business WILL become part of that conversation.
The #1 Rule for any service business that relies on sales is to make Friends First. Having a common Hobby can only be a good thing and folks will never forget where that first Shell Bobber came from. It sure beats the heck out of those cheap coffee cups I have used in the past (and yes they do work) but the Fishing Ammo Brand is definitely more my style that will easily make more of an impact on my customer's that love to fish as much as I do.
Look for the Shell Bobbers in a Sporting Goods Store near you soon!
