PLANO RELEASES WHAT UMBRELLA RIG USERS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR: ALABAMA RIG RAP
Plano, Ill (April 19, 2013) – One fish, two fish, three fish more… And sometimes reeled in all at one time! There’s no doubting anglers have embraced the Alabama Rig as more than just a here-today-gone-tomorrow technique. Just a single cast where shad or shiners are the forage of choice is all it takes to prove this multi-hook mechanism can cause quite a commotion of flopping fish.
Minnetonka, Minn. - Sufix® 832®, the first fishing line to combine both Dyneema® and GORE® fibers and win prestigious awards from both the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades and Field & Stream, is the most innovative fishing line introduced in the last few years. Now, Sufix expands on the renowned 832 line series with the introduction of two new colors: Camo and Hi-Vis Yellow.
"When anglers are trying to match vegetation for the perfect blending technique, Camo is the line for the job," said Al Lindner, legendary angler and National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Famer. "This color line can make the difference in catching or not catching fish when flippin' in grass, rocks or other heavy structures."
MINNETONKA, Minn. - In 1936, Lauri Rapala made history with the 'wounded minnow' action of the Original Floating® Rapala®. To this day, the 'wounded minnow' action has set the benchmark for lure design across the globe. Now, Rapala makes history once again with the patent pending, industry first 'evasive action' of the new Rapala Scatter Rap®.
In true Rapala style, the patent pending Scatter Rap Series flaunts classic balsa body shapes and a new Scatter Lip, which creates the most evasive, erratic, aggressive sweeping action ever seen.
KENNESAW, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Yamaha announced today the launch of its new 2013 product line at the Miami International Boat Show. These new products represent the cutting edge of marine technology, while offering Yamaha's signature power and reliability.
Yamaha's new four-cylinder, four-stroke F200 is the lightest 200-hp four stroke on the market and can easily replace lower horsepower or larger V6 outboards, thereby increasing the performance of mid-sized boats.

With on your tackle boxes you'll save time and get organized. The TackleMinder set includes 20 colorful, easy-to-read, pre-printed labels with all the most popular items - plus four additional blank labels so you can custom create your own TackleMinder label.
