KastKing Kodiak Spinning Reel

KastKing Kodiak 3000

If you’re thinking “I’ve never seen KastKing in Bass Pro before”, you’d be exactly right. KastKing exclusively sells their products on their own website or other online channels. KastKing creates reliable and strong fishing gear and is able to keep their prices below competitors because they don’t pay shelving costs, not because they’re any less quality.

Deeper Smart Sonar PRO+ Fish Finder

I have been interested in portable fish finders ever since I first started kayak fishing. Deep lakes with no visible cover can be very hard to fish without electronics, such as Lake Norman in North Carolina. One of the biggest attractants to this unit in particular is the ease of use and portability that allows you to transfer this between fishing from shore, to a pier, to a kayak.

GoPro HERO Session Review

GoPro has already made the point that their cameras are almost essential for any fisherman’s day on the water. The fact that they’re waterproof and durable, while still capturing quality video makes it an easy choice. However, there was a little hesitation in the GoPro community when the Hero Session was released. Could this little camera really live up to the hype of its predecessors?

Yeti Tundra 45 Cooler

The first thing that comes to mind when you see a Yeti is just how thick and solid it looks. It seems overkill for a cooler, and it is, but then again most coolers only keep ice for about a day. I’ve had the opportunity over the last several weeks to review Yeti’s most popular cooler, the Tundra 45. It is the perfect size for storage and portability and it really just is an awesome all around cooler.

Southern Bred Outfitters Performance Fishing Shirt

As an avid fisherman I have had the opportunity, or rather the need, to purchase a variety of high quality fishing shirts not only to look awesome while fishing but also because the material and UV protection really make a difference while out on the water. By that I mean faster drying, non-chaffing, and just overall just a more comfortable shirt.

Williamson Curved Fillet Knife

Williamson is a part of Rapala and they develop lures and fishing tools. I was fortunate enough to be able to work with their 10” curved fillet knife this past weekend and I was very impressed with the cutting power and rigidity that it provided. My first impression of this fillet knife was that I could use it to fillet a 15 foot bull shark.

Adventure Medical Kits Sportsman Steelhead

First aid kits are often overlooked by fisherman especially when just going out for just a few hours, however, that is often when they’re needed the most. Adventure Medical Kits has developed specific sport-geared medical kits that are waterproof and very light. It makes bringing one along very easy and everything inside will stay dry.

Costa Del Mar Zane Green Mirror 580G Sunglasses

One of the coolest parts about Costa Del Mar is that they are deeply rooted in fishing as you can tell from all of their frame names. For example, the Zanes, which get their name from the Zane Grey reef in Panama, is one of the best sport fishing locations in the world.

GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Review

GoPro’s HERO 3+ Black Edition is an excellent action sports camera and it has endless potential for anglers. With the latest improvements there is little to be desired and it is hands down one of the best outdoor camera/video cameras on the market. Check out our testing to see what this camera can do!

McCoy has developed a Super Spectra Braid that uses polymer saturated spectra fibers to create a super strong and super tough premium line.
