B-Fish-N Tackle’s MasterFlash Jig taps into key predator-prey interactions  
(Jun 15, 2017 - Coralville, IA) Underwater, some pretty cool visuals produce compelling cause-effect scenarios, often unbeknownst to anglers.

(Jun 12, 2017 - Crosslake, MN) Don’t be surprised when your smartphone goes full A.I., 3D and solar powered—all at once. Or when your device lets you interact with lifelike holographic images. Or when something called ‘augmented reality’ endows your phone with Star Trek Tricorder powers, scanning, analyzing and enhancing anything in your world.  

(Jun 2, 2017 - Gurnee IL) Onboard power management is a concern, particularly on larger yachts where multiple light sources can represent a continuous drain.

(May 9, 2017 - Hayward, CA) Out of the water, even the lightest dinghy can be awkward to move. Some owners use anything they can find, from reluctant bystanders to dock carts.

(Mar 24, 2017 - Park Falls, WI) The precision, long-distance cast – it’s the mark of the elite bass angler. The ability to hit the faraway pocket in a pad field, to reach the most remote regions of a dock, to run a crankbait on ledge in just the right window—these are the powers that separate the average bass angler from the extraordinary one. These are the angling powers that St. Croix aims to amplify with the debut of six new members in the Legend Tournament Bass casting lineup.

(Mar 16, 2017 - Plano,IL) Great hunting is where you find it, and sometimes, it’s just a short distance from the house, camp or truck.

They need a secure place to keep essential hunting gear and supplies meticulously organized and ready for action – a sturdy, svelte and lightweight hunting pack that won’t slow them down.

(Mar 14, 2017 - Peachtree City, GA) Bright white light is great when working or performing a specific task but often a softer tone or secondary color is desired. Owners can now benefit from two alternating LED hues with the new Dual Color Sea Hawk-XL lamps from Hella marine.

St. Croix Eyecon trolling rods let anglers see, feel and CATCH what they’ve been missing
(Feb 21, 2017 - Park Falls, WI) Unpredictable? Oh yeah. Fickle? Goes without saying. Heck, why don’t we just simply call ‘em plain ol’ picky and be done with it. And if you target what is arguably North America’s choosiest (and tastiest) freshwater fish, it’s obvious, we’re talking walleyes.

St. Croix goes off the grid with new Premier Musky Spinning Rod  
(Feb 17, 2017 - Park Falls, WI) This isn’t about the poor sap caught on camera with his spinning rod upside down. What matters is that the dude’s heart’s in the right place. He’s fishing. Not golfing, bowling or sitting in his mom’s basement shooting zombies with a joystick.

The Inside Story Behind Custom Jigs & Spins’ Classic Ratfinkee
(Jan 4, 2017 - Coralville, IA) Funny thing about the best fishing lures ever created. They’re often the least extravagant, most humble baits in the bunch. But like actual works of art, they have a way of transcending the space-time continuum. Not just in the sense that these classic lures “hold up” across many seasons, but that they’re virtually immune to the dreaded fishing-pressure factor; that fish never really turn wise to these all-time greats.
