Fish Fighter Products Tackle Tender

 

My first experience with Fish Fighter Products was at the Western Washington Sportsman’s Show this past January. I kept wandering over to their booth looking at all the product line. After many years in the fishing industry it takes something special to get me excited. Well I can say now that Fish Fighter Products is one of the new products that did just that.
The product line is not a rehash of other boat hardware accessory stuff, its new and extremely innovated. It is also the build from the best materials they can use. No short cuts with Fish Fighter Products you get the best from each top of the line product down to the provided bolts to mount it.
The first product that caught my eye was the Tackle Tender. Tyler Ross from Fish Fighter Products demoed the unit for me and I was hooked. I now have a set of sliding Base Rails, Tackle Tenders with Rod Risers holding my Scotty rod holders mounted on my new 27ft North River O/S.

It’s been an interesting year working the Washington Sportsman Show, The Seattle International Boat Show and the NW Sportsman Show in Portland. I enjoyed meeting all the anglers that attend either my seminars or just stopped by the Lowrance booth to see all the new products. What was the most asked question I got over and over? If you think it was about fishing you would be wrong. It was what happened to your boat? (more…)

Pro-Troll Lighted Flasher

       Pro-Troll Lighted flasher

Following three years of testing and development, Pro-Troll has developed a lighted flasher series. Most fish are attracted to light. The light is water activated. It turns on when it contacts the water, and turns off when dry. It’s unique circuits flash red, white and green on both sides of the flasher. The sealed battery lasts 80 hours or more and then the light can be easily replaced. Lighted flashers and glow flashers are most effective in dim light (early morning) or in cloudy water or when fishing deep (where it’s dark).

Evinrude G-2

 

I have been running the new Evinrude G-2 engines for several years now on Salt Patrol and have been extremely pleased with the performance.

When Evinrude set out to build its latest second generation E-TEC outboards to not only surpass current engine technology but to build an off-shore capable engine that is easy to use and even easier to maintain. They are the only one of the “Big 5” outboard builders to pursue advanced 2-stroke engine technology rather than the less costly development of 4-stroke power. (more…)
