Most of you know that everyone at American Legacy Fishing just L-O-V-E-S Sunline fishing lines. Definitely the world’s best fishing line, hands down. These are fishing lines that are absolutely perfectly round with no variation in diameter. That means that the test strength is better than typical “popular priced”, mass market lines. They’re also far more castable and lay on the reel spool far better. And with the brand new Reaction FX you even get a fluorocarbon line that stretches, which is actually very desirable in a fishing line.
So here the deal: Buy ANY Two spools of Sunline fishing line – any type – any spool size (mix and match is OK) and we’ll include a FREE Sunline microfiber t-shirt absolutely free. That’s a $38 value t-shirt free! No matter whether you buy the least expensive Super Mono or the more pricey fluorocarbon, the t-shirt is free. And we all know just how cool microfiber clothing is on those hot summer days. Just include a note with your order telling us what size you want and we’ll take it from there.
Here’s your chance to try the world’s best fishing line and get a freebie to boot. We can guarantee you that once you experience Sunline you’ll never go back. It’s just that good! Oh, and be sure to troll your new line out before first use. This is true of any new line. Try it and see just how much better the line performs.
Seems that normally you have to buy a card of 10 skirts per color for the Shimano Lucanus jigs, but we’re offring these individually OR as card of 10 per color. Hey, we listened to your requests! Individually they are $2.25 each; $19.99 for a full card.
By offering these individually you can now have some spare skirts without making an investment that will exceed the price of the jig! And with 10 different colors you don’t have an excuse for not having a spare or two for each jig. Don’t compromise the effectiveness of your jigs with worn out skirts!
We also are now stocking both replacement trailer hooks for the Lucanus jigs. There are two sizes: a #3 and a #1/0. Both are now in stock and sell for $5.99 each. If you’re using Lucanus jigs consider some replacement trailer hooks as well as skirts to keep those fish-catching jigs working perfectly!
Here’s a great encore to the fabulous Koppers Live Target Hollow Body Frog – the Koppers Live Target Field Mouse. Winner of the 2011 ICAST Product Showcase these hollow body top water lures are awesome. Talk about driving a fish crazy, this guy will definitely do that in spades! These are so realistic that you can use them to catch some trophy fish or, if you want to get into lots of trouble at home, put them on the kitchen floor and watch the little woman’s reaction (not recommended). They’re that real looking!
There are two sizes, a 3″ 5/8 oz size and a 3 1/2″ 3/4 oz. size. Both sizes come in 4 great colors: Brown and white, gray and white, white and white, and black and white. All come with Made-In-Japan Daiichi super sharp hooks. This the perfect treat for Bass and Pike stalking in heavy cover, waiting to ambush their quarry. This weedless lure is most effective when skirted across the tops of pads and grass mats; however it also has an incredible side-to-side walk-the-dog action when used in open runs. The intricate life-like details make this mouse so realistic you’ll swear it is alive.
We can’t image any serious fisherman not having a full arsenal of these babies in the tackle box and right now they are all in stock and ready to ship the same day your order is received. The price for either size is an extremely reasonable $10.49, especially when you consider these guys fish catching potential.

Available in 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 65, and 80 lb test, 4 colors – Timber(brown), Marine (blue), Aqua (lighter green), and Hi-Vis (yellow), and spools of 150, 300, and 1,500 yards this is simply a remarkable line for any fishing application, especially if you haven’t been a braid fan as of yet.

Sometimes you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a heck of a reel. Shimano’s Citica Low Profile Casting Reel would be a perfect case in point. At $129.99 this is simply an awesome reel and offers tremendous “Bang-For-The-Buck in every way imaginable. Think Premium HEG gearing for unbelievable power and torque, Aluminum frames, Lightweight Graphite Side plates, 4 Bearings, Dartainium Drag, Variable Brake System, Quickfire II Clutch Bar, Drilled Spool, and so much more. Weight? A paltry 7.5 oz. – about the same as the new Shimano Chronarch!
If you’re getting tired of those “throw away after one season” low profile reels then the Shimano Citica Low Profile Casting Reel is just the ticket. These reels come in 7.1:1, 6.5:1, and 5.5:1 ratios with the 6.5:1 ratio also available in Left Hand Retrieve. And we guarantee you this reel will perform circles around other brands of reels costing lots, lots more!
Best of all, every Citica reel has a phenomenal line capacity. Think 180 yards of 8 lb test mono; 155 yards of 10 lb test, and 110 yards of 14 lb test! If you’re a bass, walleye, northern pike, or other freshwater species fisherman this is one great reel and one worth your consideration. We have all of these great reels in stock and will ship your order the same day – worldwide. Take one of these great reels for a test drive. You won’t be disappointed!
Did you know that American Legacy Fishing Company stocks ALL Shimano Jigs and All Terez Rods? We mention this because these are two of the hottest items we currently carry and they are literally flying off the shelves!
The Terez rods offer some of the very best Bang-For-The-Buck anywhere. These rods have the New Fuji K-Frames with Alconite ring Guides, TC4 or C4S Blanks, Custom EVA or Cork grips for specific techniques, Custom Reel Seats, and an Over-The-Counter-Exchange Limited Lifetime Warranty. They are light, responsive, and unbelievably powerful and strong. There are 33 models and each model comes in 5 colors so you very likely match the color of your boat. If you fish saltwater and don’t have several of these fantastic rods in your arsenal you really are missing out. They are matched perfectly with the Shimano jigs including the super-popular Waxwing Series. Add a Shimano Talica, Trinidad A, Stella, or Thunnus reels and some Power Pro braided line and you have a deadly fish-catching machine without equal.
The Shimano Waxwing and Lucanus Jigs are just as hit as the Terez Rods and every day we hear stories of unbelievable fish-catching using these jigs. They perform in saltwater as well as freshwater and have been known to catch fish that weigh in well over 100 lbs. in many different situations and conditions. There are 63 models in a total of 5 different sizes for saltwater and 16 different models in 2 sizes for freshwater. And folks, these jigs are catching fish like crazy!
The great thing about the these Lucanus and Waxwing jigs and Terez rods are they are matched perfectly to make sure you get the greatest bang-for-the-buck. Prices are very reasonable and right now every rod and jig is in stock. WE highly recommend you consider giving these Shimano Jigs a try – the sooner the better (fishing success). And don’t forget the Terez rods as these just match up perfectly with the jigs. Why wait to figure out why your buddy is catching all the fish?

They rotate on a super heavy spinner assembly and proudly come with G. Loomis stickers. We figured now that Spring is in full bloom many of you will be doing some Spring Cleaning and making a serious attempt to get organized. Nothing is more frustrating than having to look high and low for a particular rod. Our Rod Rack will make that a thing of the past.
Best of all, you can store either rods alone or rod and reel combos using this rack. Typically we can get about 18-20 combos in the rack with no problem, but that will vary depending on the size of your reels. Right now we have these great All Wood 40 rod capacity Rotating Rod Racks In Stock. Get one or two now and Get Organized this fishing season!
These super coolers and will hold ice (or heat) for as long as 10 days. We actually tested these in Florida last year, leaving an 80 quart cooler filled with ice, beer, bait, etc. out at the end of a dock in the sun on 90 degree days for 8 days. At the end of the 8th day everything was ice cold and we still had lots of ice in the cooler!
We told you in the last newsletter that simply by having these amazing coolers we would probably sell them down quickly. Well it’s happening! Fair warning here that these coolers are going F-A-S-T, so if having one of these babies is even close to being on your radar screen you need to order now. It has taken about 6 months to get what we now have, so that sort of gives you an idea why everyone wants an Engel.
We know these coolers aren’t cheap – the 65 quart, for example, is $339.99, but just ask yourself how many coolers you’ve thrown away over the years. If you’re like us it’s a bunch. All at about $50 – $70 a pop. Add in the expense of all the extra ice you had to buy after a day or so to keep your stuff cold or had food and drinks spoil because your cooler just didn’t hold the cold and these Engel’s are a bargain. Best of all, this will be the LAST Cooler you’ll ever buy!
Like we said, we have them in stock and can ship now. No shipping fees (to ANY USA Address), no packaging fees, just the price of the cooler. What a deal!
Holiday Schedules for 4th of July………………
“Gone Fishing”. Yep, we will be closed the 4th of July, Wednesday, July 4, 2012. We WILL BE OPEN Tuesday and Thursday before and after the 4th of July, so if you’re in the area please stop by and say “hello”. We are always eager to meet every customer we possibly can.
Walleye Fishing Heats Up and We Have Some Great, New Gear………..
I don’t know about you, but everyone here at American Legacy fishing just Loves fishing for walleye. They’re fun to catch and oh so good to eat. And now is the start of the season that we have all been waiting for!
More often than not walleye fishing is all about finesse. They’re bite is usually pretty subtle, especially when the bite is hard to come by. The right rod and reel can make the difference between bring home a nice mess of keepers and practically being skunked. And of course we think we have some of the Very Best Walleye equipment available today.
The Right Rod is an absolute “must” and both G. Loomis and Shimano have some of the very best finesse rods out there for walleye. On the G. Loomis side the new Walleye Rods are just spectacular. There are now 16 models, half are GLX blanks ($375 to $400) and half are G. Loomis “walleye hybrid” blanks ($235 to $255). The GLX blank rods are absolutely scary in their sensitivity and power. There is just no way you should ever miss the softest finesse bite with one of these babies. But the “walleye hybrid” are surely about as good. They weigh slightly more and the components are perhaps one step down from the GLX models, but they will also kick some walleye butt in any finesse fishing situation. They’re both fantastic rods! And as will all G. Loomis rods, come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
In the Shimano side we absolutely Love the new Crucial rods. They are new for 2012 and have improved sensitivity, split grips, and some fabulous components to boot. These rods are very light but also very powerful, so don’t worry when you hook into that 10 pounder. These rods can handle that bad boy with ease! All have a Limited Lifetime Warranty as well.
Of course, you need a good spinning reel to mate up with one of these great rods so it should be no surprise that we have what we think is the perfect reels. If you opt for a G. Loomis rod we can’t think of a better reel that the brand new Shimano Sustain FG Series reels. This is also a new reel for 2012 and everyone around here calls these magnificent reels the “baby Stella”. They have been completely redesigned and just rock. We like the Sustain SA2500FG or SA3000FG matched up to the G. Loomis Walleye Series rods. If you are a light tackle fanatic then take the smaller Sustain SA1000FG for a spin. All are magnificent and sell for a reasonable $329.99 in any of the 3 models mentioned.
For the Shimano Crucial rods we are in love with the Shimano Stradic CI4 Spinning reels. These are light, powerful, well built reels that will amaze you in just how ell made they are. Again, we recommend the either the Stradic CI4ST2500F size or the Stradic CI4ST3000F size. And again, if you like very light gear don’t overlook the smaller Stradic CI4ST1000F. At $199.99 any of these Stradic CI4 reels will make walleye fishing a whole new ball game.
Finally there’s the line you’ll put on that new reel. If you like a sinking line the brand new Sunline Reaction FC fluorocarbon line is just the ticket. This line stretches which is not typical for a fluorocarbon line. This means that you get just enough stretch to set the hook fast and deep. A great line that will surprise you. If you’re more of a “typical” fisherman or just like monofilament line then you can’t beat the Sunline Super Mono lines. These are precision lines which means the diameter is consistent, something that not typical with most mono lines. This means that break strength is better and the line performance is the best available. A perfect line for all of you walleye fishermen!
Right now we have every rod and reel in stock with good quantities on the shelf. Be sure to take a look at these great rods and reels and be prepared to catch some fish this Spring!
We’re going to level with you here. We were not real thrilled when everyone started using these so called “Alabama” rigs. Some of you call them Umbrella Rigs. We just saw this as perhaps a bit unfair to the fish. That is until we actually tried a few. Simply put, we are now eating crow. These rigs Catch Fish! My oh my do they catch fish!
That said, there are some problems. First, many that we were able to get our hands on were crude and not very well made. Second, the swivels that came with these were cheap and frankly not very good quality. Especially when you consider that these rigs sell for as much as $40 a pop(!). So, we decided to have one of our custom lure makers take a long hard look at this design to see if it was possible to make an Umbrella Rig that was high quality but priced fairly given the components that were used. Folks, I think we hit a home run!
American Legacy Fishing’s Stealth Bomb Umbrella Rigs are truly different. First, we have a custom painted lead head with custom eyes. No one else does. Second, our wire extensions are high grade .041 Stainless Steel. Third, our wire ends are made so when you lose an end swivel you can actually replace it, so no more throwing away your rigs due to missing a couple of end swivels. Forth, Our swivels are all ball bearing Sampo’s – no cheap swivels here. Fifth, or Stealth Bomb Umbrella Rigscome with a retainer next to the jig head that allows you to compress the rig for easy (and compact) storage. Finally, our wires in the jig head are twisted so there is never a chance that they will pull loose or pull out. The price of all this quality? $24.99 Not cheap, but when you consider the quality, workmanship, and the fact these are custom rigs that address most other rigs short comings they are a heck of a deal.
Right now we have a very good stock of Stealth Bombs on hand. We have 4 different colors, all 1/2 oz. total rig weight.
Like we said in our last newsletter the hottest item in fishing today is the Alabama/ Umbrella rigs. We think we have the best quality there is in our new Stealth Bomb rig (see below), but that still leaves the jigs and bait that you’ll need for the end of the wires. Well, let me tell you, we got what you need!
Right now we have one of the “hottest” swimbaits out there, the brand new Big Hammer Swimbaits in 3 different sizes – 3″, 4″, and 5″ – and all 7 colors. These are simply put the best swimbaits available for your Alabama/Umbrella/Stealth rigs. They have a unique square tail design that gives them a great swimming action and when used with a Stealth Bomb rig is almost a guarantee for some serious action.
Also on the shelf is another fantastic swim bait from Reaction Innovations. Here there are also 3 different sizes – the Little Dipper, Skinny Dipper, and Big Dipper. All three of these Reaction Innovations Swimbaits have a very different swimming action as well as a unique head design. They work fantastically well with our Stealth Bomb umbrella rigs and we can tell you these catch fish – big fish.
Either one of these swimbait lines are highly recommended by our staff as well as our touring pro. We’ve all used them and they are so well made and so unique as far as swimbaits go. There really is a big difference in quality and if you are using our Stealth Bomb rig then either the Big Hammer Swimbaits or the Reaction Innovation Swimbaits are for you. Right now we have a great stock, so get some of these and show everyone how it’s done!
By now just about everyone is using Alabama/Umbrella rigs . Whether fishing for largemouth, walleye, or other species these rigs are, simply put, producing fish. Large fish! Our high-end Stealth Bomb has already scored in many tournaments and we have no doubt this success will just continue to get better and better as time goes on. But there is ONE Problem: Once you have these rigs “rigged out” they are a real pain-in-the-butt to store in your tackle bag or box. Yes, our Stealth Bomb has a retainer ring built in that allows you to “collapse” the five wires, but that still leaves the swivels, jigs, hooks, and plastics out, ready to catch all your other stuff hither and yon. Until now…
The New Shimano Umbrella Rig Tackle Bags are Just The Ticket to eliminate all this untidiness. The Small Shimano Umbrella Rig Tackle bag has eight slots that Fully Rigged umbrella rigs will easily fit into plus 6 slots for unassembled rigs (no jigs, hooks, plastics) plus a front pocket for a utility box or spools of line (not included). The Large Shimano Umbrella Rig Tackle bag has 16 slots that Fully Rigged umbrella rigs will easily fit into plus 8 slots for unassembled rigs (no jigs, hooks, plastics) plus a side pocket with a utility box (included) plus a front pocket for a utility box or spools of line (not included). Best of all, these Shimano Tackle Bags are very High Quality 1680 denier fabric with a durable rubber mesh bottom for fast drain and dry. Both have shoulder straps (removable) and a side strap for pliers, etc. And, they both have a One Year Shimano Warranty.
The Small Shimano Umbrella Rig Tackle bag is $49.99, the Large Shimano Umbrella Rig Tackle bag is $69.99 and right now these babies are In Stock and can ship immediately. If you’re using umbrella rigs and are tired of the tackle bag mess they create then this is your bag!
If there has ever been a fishing phenomenon that has taken the fishing world by storm it has to be the invention and use of the Alabama rigs. One day no one has heard of it, the next everyone, and we mean E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E is using them. Call them Alabama Rigs, Umbrella Rigs, or Stealth Bombs, everyone is throwing these rigs.
And that’s great, but from what we’ve seen many of you are not up to speed as far as the best rod, reel , and line that allows these marvelous rigs to perform at their best. When you use these Alabama/Umbrella/ Stealth Bombs you really need a swimbait rod coupled to a larger reel. Now we wouldn’t be telling you this unless we thought we had the perfect combo for you. And we do.
We recommend using a swimbait rod such as the G. Loomis Swimbait rod SWBR904 ($265) or SWBR955 ($270). If you’re throwing bigger jigs (3/8 oz or more) with bigger swimbait plastics you may even want to consider the SWBR956 ($270) or even the SWBR957 ($295). If you like split grip rods we also have some awesome new 2012 G. Loomis GL2 Swimbait rods such as the GL2 956C SWB ($245) or the GL2 957C SWB ($245).
Now that you have the right rod then you’ll need a reel than can stand up to the heavier lure weights both when you cast out as well as retrieve since you have a lot more weight than you normally would if you were fishing just one jig, crankbait, or spinner. You need big gears and guts. What to use? The Curado 300 series reels are just the ticket! Right hand we recommend the Curado CU300E, left hand the Curado CU301E. Price is $249.99. Not bad for a bullet-proof low profile casting reel with extra line capacity that’s Made in Japan and practically indestructible. No more side plate bearing failures for you!
Once you have the right rod and reel then all that left is line, and of course we have a recommendation for this as well. All of us here at American Legacy Fishing like using either 65 lb test $21.49 (16 lb mono equivalent) or 80 lb. test $24.99 (18 lb mono equivalent) Power Pro braided line or, better yet, New Power Pro Super Slick – 65 lb $24.99 or 80 lb $27.99. A 150 yard spool of either will fill that Curado 300 series reel perfectly and now you will be all set to really get the most bang-for-the-buck out of your Alabama/Umbrella/Stealth Bomb rig.
Right now we have everything in stock, so consider our recommendations if you will be fishing these “hot” rigs.
Over the years we have resisted offering rain suits in our store. Why? Well to be honest, most just didn’t work very well. They leaked or were so cumbersome that you could hardly move in them. And, as they got older they leaked even worse. And they were expensive. Way too expensive given their mediocre performance.
But that all changed when Shimano introduced the new 2012 Dryfender 3T Rain Pants/bib and Jacket (together a “rain suit”). Everything we disliked in other rains suits we looked at just wasn’t here with these new Shimano Dryfender 3T‘s. They were lightweight, cool, easy to move in, definitely kept you dry as a bone, had great well thought-out features, and were reasonably priced for the value received. So, as you would expect, we jumped on these and put them in stock pronto.
The Top-of-the-Line in Shimano Dryfender is the Dryfender 3T jacket and Pants/Bib. Color is Charcoal and the price for the jacket is $249.99, for the pants/bib is $219.99. Total for a suit: $469.98 Pretty damn reasonable when you look around and there are lots of folks wanting $500 to $1,000 for a rain suit that we guarantee you will not perform near as well nor wear as well as the Shimano Dryfender 3T.
The Shimano Dryfender rain jacket and pant are one step down from the 3T and in our opinion more like a lighter duty rainsuit you would throw in the boat when expecting light showers or intermittent rain. Don’t get us wrong, this is great rain gear and equals many other brands that cost lots, lots more. But it is not as good as the Dryfender 3T. That said, it is a lot less money as well. The Dryfender jacket and pants come only in black and the jacket costs $119.99 and the pants are $79.99 Now for a total of $199.98 this is one heck of a rain suit. It doesn’t have all the features or performance that the Dryfender 3T does.
Look, we’re are in the middle of or will be in the middle of the rainy season any day, so give one of these rain suits a try. After all, we held out for many years until we found something this good. And we know YOU deserve to be dry, cool, and comfortable!
There’s something about the great outdoors that makes enjoying a good cigar just that much better. Maybe it’s because most wives “prohibit” cigar smoking in the house. Maybe it’s because we get tired of smoking those lovely sticks in the garage or on the back porch. Whatever it is we now have a great new line of American Legacy Fishing Travel Humidor Boxes in Three Sizes for you cigar smokers.
These Travel Humidors come in Three Sizes: 5 Cigar, 10 Cigar, and 15 Cigar capacity. Every box has an air tight seal with two clip closures and a humidification device that will make sure your precious cigars will remain fresh, dry, and in perfect condition regardless of how much abuse these boxes are subjected to. Every Travel Humidor has removable foam inserts that treat those smokes to the best care possible. Best of all, every one of our American Legacy Fishing Travel Humidors carry a Lifetime Warranty.
Quick story: I forgot I had one of these in my boat last fall and it stayed there over the winter. When I got my boat out this Spring I discovered my Travel Humidor. I opened it up and lo and behold my cigars were just as fresh as the day (about 5 months ago) I put them in there.
If you enjoy fine cigars as much as we do then these are a “must have” for travel, fishing, golf, etc. Prices are $24.99 for the 5 stick travel humidor, $29.99 for the 10 stick travel humidor, and $34.99 for the 15 stick travel humidor. With good cigars costing $6.00 to $15.00 or more a stick these are simply a great investment!
Sometimes you just get lucky. In the case of being the very first dealer to offer Phil Hunt’s Squeaky P Buzz Prop Baits we got more than lucky. We were absolutely blessed. These lures will be featured in an article in an upcoming issue of BASSMASTER Magazine. They’re that good.
The Squeaky P is made by hand from Balsa wood here in Indiana by angler Phil Hunt. Each lure is built by hand then clear-coated, painted then clear-coated again for added durability. Each one has an aluminum rod running through the length of the bait so it won’t be crushed and the props won’t be pulled off by aggressive fish. The Squeaky P is designed to be fished anytime the top water bite is good. Several of our pro’s have had great success with these lures. It is highly effective on Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted bass on the local river systems all the way through the late fall. It is most effective when retrieved at slow speeds, and when you pop the lure on slack line it will always turn to the left. It does not pull straight like most other prop lures. Additionally, the Squeaky P emits a squeak when “walking the dog” thus giving it the name Squeaky P. All made in custom painted colors these lures are as much a work of art as a proven fish getter. Price is $28.99 and worth every penny. Try one of these are we’re sure you will agree!
Speaking of hot items, how about those Koppers Live Target Hollow Body frogs! Now that Spring fishing season is in full bloom this will soon be the hottest lure in your tackle box. And up until now supplies (and colors/sizes) have been hard to come by. But we just received an amazing shipment of every color and size and right now they’re all in stock.
These babies are so life like that there isn’t a fish that has an appetite that can resist them. Plus, they are true “match the hatch” colors and really look and swim like the real thing. There are now 3 sizes: 1 3/4″, 2 1/4″ and 2 5/8″ and 8 fantastic colors. Everyone here at American Legacy Fishing has a great selection of these in their tackle boxes and continues to report phenomenal success using these lures.
Every one of these Koppers Live Target Hollow Body Frogs is under $10 bucks. Think about what you’ve been paying for lures that are so-so performers and these guys are simply a no brainer. Whether Spring or Summer these lures will produce both big fish as well as amazed fishermen. Please, if you haven’t tried these yet order some today. we just know you will be glad you did!
You can’t hardly go to any credible fishing blog or tackle test web site that isn’t all abuzz about this truly “Heavy Duty” Low Profile “Big Fish” Reel called the Shimano Tranx. If you’re a musky fisherman or fish for other big, bad fish such as stripers, wahoo, steelhead, salmon, or any variety of other bad fish and have always wished you could find a more comfortable low profile casting reel then this, my friends, is your reel!
These reels are made tough as nails and will outperform many of the “round reels” so common today. They are available in 6.6:1 and a 4.6:1 retrieve ratio and weigh in at about 20 oz., so don’t think of them as dainty or something you’ll use in Uncle Norm’s farm pond. These guys are for fish with attitudes. Big fish that don’t want to be caught!
Shimano TranX reels have a revolutionary design and shape that provides the comfort of low profile with the capacity of a conventional reel. Shimano TranX is offered in high gear (HG) and power gear (PG) models to cover a wide range of applications. Here are the details per Shimano:
X-Ship provides an extra smooth retrieve with superior durability; HEG – a larger drive gear and pinion gear increase cranking efficiency; SF – Superfree Bearing supported Pinion Gear eliminates friction with spool shaft for better freespool; E.I. Surface treatment on the spool protects against corrosion from saltwater soaked braided line; S A-RB coating protects bearings from rust in saltwater use; Super Stopper eliminates handle back play; VBS Brake System effectively reacts to spool rotation speed to provide ideal brake force at all times during cast; Dartainium II Drag Washer provides incredibly smooth drag performance with durability; and an Ergonomic Power Handle for better leverage.
The “right way” to really sharpen a good fillet knife is with a set of whetstones specifically designed for putting a razor’s edge on the knife. But, such systems are cumbersome to say the least, require some skill in order to get the knife really, really sharp, and are in no way very portable. Yes, they are the best, but when you’re out in the field and your knife gets dull (hopefully because of all the fish or game you have bagged) these systems just are that practical. So we wanted to offer the case hardened sharpening system.
For over a year we’ve been looking for a “quick” knife sharpening tool or tools that we could offer not only for our World’s Best Fillet Knife, but for all knives, even the “quick to dull” stainless steel models that are so popular today. Up until now everything we looked at was, well, shall we say “cheap”. Not necessarily in price, but in performance. All too often we ended up with a sharp blade, but took so much metal off the blade that it just wasn’t something we could recommend. Worse, the edge went away very quickly.
Then we found Edgemaker. This system is Made In The USA and actually meets our very strict requirements. There are two tools that, when used properly, will put a great edge on any knife and Voila, will actually last quite a long time. And the knife will be very, very sharp! Best of all, both tools will easily fit in your tackle box. Price for this Edgemaker Sharpening System Kit is a very reasonable $29.95 If you fillet fish then this is a tool you definitely need!
WOW! Our World’s Best Filet Knife is finally back in stock! To celebrate and to thank you for your patience we have these amazing knives on sale for $49.99 (normally $74.99)! In the world of fillet knives this is a one-of-a-kind knife and one you will want to pass down to your kids or grandkids (once they know proper knife handling skills).
Let me make this perfectly clear from the get-go. These baits are priced Way Too Low. The Crankbaits are only $15.99 each and the Spinnerbaits are $8.99 each. Hey, these are handmade here in the USA custom baits. Hand assembled with premium TroKar and Mustad hooks, hand painted, and assembled. Like we said, Way to Cheap for the quality and performance!
Everyone is looking for an extra edge out on the water. The fact is fish have seen the same factory baits over and over. It is time to show them something a little different…..something custom. The new Stealth Custom Spinnerbaits and Crankbaits are some of the finest lures on the market. The custom hand-tied spinnerbait skirts and ultra-realistic custom painted crankbaits give you the edge you’ve been looking for.
The Stealth Custom Shop spinnerbaits are currently available in 3/8 oz. and 1/2 oz. Double Willow Leaf models. There are seven proven and tested fish catching colors that are sure to make even the pickiest bass commit. The spinnerbaits utilize an ultra-thin wire that throws off a ton of underwater vibration. Stealth’s hand-tied skirts pulse and undulate in the water like nothing the fish have ever seen.
If the spinnerbait bite isn’t happening, tie on one of the SCS1.5 or SCS1.5 DD crankbaits. These baits were designed to be some of the best shallow cranking baits in your tackle box. Currently available in six handpicked custom colors, there is an option for every water color you encounter. These baits run true out of the package, no tuning needed. The SCS1.5 square bill will run 2 – 5 ft. and the SCS1.5 DD will run 6 – 9 ft. These are high performance crankbaits that will deflect through wood and rock without getting hung up.
Say again: these baits should probably sell for between $25 – $30 at the least. And we’re pretty sure that sooner or later the manufacturer (one guy) will up and realize what he’s created and the price will zoom. Until then we’re pricing them at his suggested retail and no more at his request. Get them while you can at this incredible price. They won’t last long. We just hope the manufacturer will!
