This versatile bait can be fished as a bladed jig, ultra shallow swim jig, or buzzbait.
-FishArrow Riser Jack Swimbait: https://bit.ly/30FMOqw
This bait is a completely different action than you’re used to. Its a crackdown with a nose up rise that gets bit. Watch some of the JDM videos and you’ll be pumped!
-Norman Speed N Crankbait: https://bit.ly/33Hpj2f
We love to speed crank and this little bait is designed for speed. Its the exact profile of the Deep Little N but in a shallow version.
-G Loomis IMX Pro Swimbait (Keitech) Rod: https://bit.ly/3ktZFnF
The 7’2″ 863C was designed for small to medium paddle tails. This is the first rod we’ve seen that is specifically designed to throw finesse swimbaits like the keitech. Great rod, great action, definitely fills a niche.
-Spro King Daddy: http://bit.ly/2h0LCYd
This giant frog is a big fish catcher! Its proven itself for years but now comes in even more colors! Our favorite are Yellow Sparkle and Navy Seal.
-Plano Edge FLEX Boxes: https://bit.ly/3kngvEG
We’ve fallen in love with Edge boxes this past year. The FLEX series allows complete adjustability in all directions, creating an incredibly versatile box.
