            That little span between the end of the fall fishing and the beginning of spring fishing

         could be a depressing period of time if not for the winter holidays. Not only is Christmas a

         time to rejoice and celebrate with family and friends—it’s a time to rack up on great new

         fishing gear. 

            We’ve spent a great deal of time playing with the newest rods, reels and lures, just so

         you can have a leg up when making your list (or buying for others). It’s a tough job, we

         know, but after extensive research, we’ve narrowed things down to the coolest of the cool.

     

         NEW BAITS:

            It never ceases to Amaze us how innovative lure manufacturers are each new fishing

         season. New scents, new actions, and new materials continue to make lure making the

         fastest changing aspect of the fishing industry. This year, seductive swimbaits and

         premium crankbaits, along with an array of new scents and flavors and soft artificials.      

 

         RATLLE HEAD BAITS

            The hook design on Rattle Head lures is sure to make some noise this year. As

         the hook is moved side-to-side, it slaps a brass rattle chamber. This sound is

         noticeably different from traditional rattles. The unique design is featured on jigs,

         spinnerbaits and buzzbaits. In addition to sound, the free-moving hook provides

         vibration and increases hook-ups while reducing thrown baits.

            All baits come in various sizes and colors. The spinnerbaits are available in

         tandem Colorado and willow-leaf or double willow-leaf blades and a nighttime

         model with a single cupped Colorado blade. Jigs sell for $3.99; spinnerbaits and

         buzzbaits are $6.99.

 

w BEST GEAR FOR 2008”– NORTH AMERICAN FISHERMAN

      Excerpt of article by managing editor Ryan Gilligan taken from October/November 2007

       issue of North American Fisherman

      

             As a diehard fisherman and gear junkie, the only place I wanted to be this past July

          was Las Vegas, the site of the 50th annual International Convention of Allied Sportfishing

          Trades (ICAST). There virtually every tackle manufacturer in existence gathered to show

          off the new baits, rods, reels, electronics, line and other gear they were unveiling for the

          coming year.

             Here are some of best, most useful products of the thousands I got to see and try at the

          show. Keep in mind, these items are far more than catalog fodder– they’re what will

          shape how you and other cutting-edge anglers fish over the next year and for seasons to

          come.

      

         RATTLE THAT RULES

              Rattle Head Baits’ unique Spinnerbait ($6.99) features a

          hook attached loosely within the lure’s head, which lets it swing side-to-side within

          a brass collar on the retrieve. The moving hook creates a fish attracting clatter

          against the collar, but probably more important is that it decreases a bass’ ability

          to get leverage and throw the bait. Rattle Head offers it in 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 ounce,

          and each bait comes with a bushing that helps change skirts.

           NEW SPIN

              How many ways are there to serve up spinnerbaits? While the variations may

           seem finite, Rattle Head Baits has developed a twist to this time-proven bass

           favorite. The Rattle Head Spinnerbait takes the action one step farther with its

           special head and hook configuration. Unlike most spinnerbaits with a fixed lead

           head and hook assembly, the Rattle Head uses a brass chamber head with the

           hook allowed to move side-to-side and up-and-down. When pulled through the

           water, the spinning blades transmit vibration through the frame and to the head.

           The hook subsequently vibrates and strikes the head chamber to produce a

           unique sound that works in addition to the flashing blades. The Rattle Head

           Spinnerbait is available in three weight sizes and three blade combinations.
