Railblaza C-TUG Ultimate Kayak Cart

Railblaza makes one of the higher end kayak carts available and their design for the CTUG is definitely different than the normal metal tube frame with rubber tires found on most carts. The neon green pads and slick black frame really makes it stand out and it just looks like a solid cart all around. I had the chance to run this cart down some rocks, steps, and slopes with a 13′ kayak – see how it handles.

Rapala Scatter Rap Deep Husky Jerk Lure

Rapala has added a scatter rap lip to the Husky Jerk lure which now gives it more erratic action. It is supposed to have a built-in triggering mechanism that adds a revolutionary evasive action perfect for casting or trolling. The lip should make this lure unpredictable in it’s swim pattern and let it change direction quickly and randomly on either a fast or slow retrieve.
