    They’ve been referred to as “performance enhancing” and an “unfair advantage.” The fact nearly every wide receiver in the NFL and NCAA now uses gloves to protect their hands and grip pigskins should not go unnoticed by anglers. Apparently, it hasn’t been. Several seasons back, gloves designed for fishermen and women started showing up in grip-and-grin photos and live tournament coverage, everywhere. The reasons? Enhanced fishing performance and protection from outdoor elements.

    Seaguar premium lines provide insurance against heartbreak

    We’ve all been there before: the panfish trip interrupted by a giant pike; the speckled trout adventure that becomes a bull redfish circus; the after-work bass run that evolves into a battle with a mammoth flathead.

  • Radically Realistic, Snag-Free Ned Rig From Z-Man

    Radically Realistic, Snag-Free Ned Rig From Z-Man

    What looks to the casual observer like the simplest jig and softbait pairing possible has actually become one of the most potent bass-catching systems ever devised. The Ned Rig, brainchild of Hall of Fame fishing writer Ned Kehde, pairs a mushroom style jighead with a small softbait, most notably a Z-Man® Finesse TRD™. The jighead pivots and activates the softbait as it traverses the substrate beautifully, small, sleight hook stinging bass with minimal hookset pressure.
