For serious saltwater fishing action, the all-new Twin Power SW spinning reels fuse Shimano technology for a reel with overwhelming power, durability and reliability to tackle any situation in any condition. Within the Twin Power SW series, anglers will uncover Shimano HAGANE reel design concept for the ability to fight big, powerful fish with confidence.
The All New Deck-Boss 15-inch Boot features an updated design that sets the new standard for what a fishing boot should be. The Deck-Boss Boot provides all-day comfort, high performance fit, superior traction, and features that every fisherman who has spent long days in boots will appreciate. Designed to be tough, durable and long lasting, the Deck-Boss Boot is built with a flexible and protective toe cap and an injection molded upper that eliminates delamination and cracking. The Patented “Herkules Grip™” compression molded rubber outsole is certified with SRC Slip Resistance, the most stringent level of slip resistance certification; providing best-in-class traction on wet surfaces. The flexible upper folds down when the full 15-inch height is not needed, and a 1-inch groove holds a durable silicone band that keeps pants out of the muck and legs dry. As with all Grundens Deck-Boss Boots, we are proud to manufacture them in a state-of-art factory in the Pacific Northwest.
No form of ocean plastic pollution is more dangerous than discarded fishing nets. Costa is joining forces with Bureo who work with fishermen to prevent discarded nets from polluting our oceans and harming marine life. The Untangled Collection features new sunglasses with frames made from recycled fishing nets. Your purchase is a step towards untangling our oceans.

Accurate Tern Reel
The Tern, Accurate’s first star drag offering, is perfect for anglers who want the lightest and smoothest star drag experience possible. The use of CVX technology allows for an incredibly lightweight, yet strong frame to take down the toughest game fish, while the TwinStarDrag allows for anglers to have confidence putting the pressure to the fish. By putting stainless steel and carbon fiber washers on each side of the main gear, rather than a stack of washers on one side, anglers will experience an unmatched smooth payout of drag at every click of the ergonomic star that fits perfectly in your hand. Whether it is castability, strength, or a smooth drag that you are looking for, the Tern is the ultimate star drag experience.
The Nomad Design Chug Norris is designed to be the ultimate popper! It represents maximum action for minimum effort when popping offshore, combined with a shape that allows an amazing walk the dog action when worked slow across the surface. We believe it captures all the best attributes of a popper, and we have put our years of experience into designing what we believe is the ideal shape that not only excites fish, but is super easy to work.
Yo-Zuri TopKnot Leader
Yo-Zuri Topknot Fluorocarbon Leader material is the newest product from Yo-Zuri.. The TopKnot Leader—Natural Clear—is Abrasion Resistant and Super Durable which maintains its clarity even after extended use. This allows the angler to get even more strikes on the same line. The most pressing feature, however, is the diameter to strength ratio. The TopKnot series offers the strongest possible breaking strength with an even smaller diameter than before. This is a must have product for any angler!
Casa Vieja Lodge Fishing Packages
On the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, an easy ride from Guatemala City, there is a paradise that caters just to offshore fisherman. Casa Vieja Lodge is a luxury resort that offers a fishing experience like no other of its kind. The accommodations are every bit of a 5-star feel with friendly staff, gourmet meals, beautiful rooms and a resort style pool and bar. But while the accommodations are enough to draw a person in, that’s not the only reason to go to the Casa Vieja. Their 9-boat fleet will take you to some of the most productive fishing grounds in the world. They are known as the “Sailfish Capital of the World” and that ain’t no lie. With an average of 15 billfish raises per day, boredom is not an option.

AFTCO Reaper Hoodie
“Game Changer?” Too cliche for some, but AFTCO’s Reaper technical fleece hoodie is definitely making the game a lot more comfortable. AFTCO delivers with technical features like an integrated face / neck warmer, laser cut ventilation on mask / underarm, cinch shock cord anchoring system, Blocky Tapey pocket closure, AFGUARD stain release, sidearm logo hit, and a toasty 100% poly bonded micro fleece fabric. No disrespect to our favorite cotton hoodies, but the AFTCO Reaper will easily be a staple when things cool down and warmth is a necessity. Wear as-is or as a crucial layering piece to stay warm on the water.
