From the guys at 13 Fishing is a new brand with the same numerical theme. No. 8 Tackle is the name, and their slogan “Fish Your Heart Out” aims to catch the eye of anglers seeking the ultimate in value and performance. This brand will be totally separate from 13 Fishing, with eye catching products that look unique and vibrant compared to others on the market. At ICAST we had a full tour of the No. 8 Tackle booth, and here is just a sampling of what they will be offering.

Candy Apple Rods: These rods are offered in both spinning and casting versions from 4'6” to 7'0” in length. Bright and attractive, they showcase red graphite blanks, white Evolve reel seats, split cork grips, and guides comprised of stainless steel with polished frames. A total of 10 spinning models are available, including 5 two-piece rods. Casting rods have 5 models, all with 1 piece construction. Regardless of what rod you choose, expect to pay $24.99.


The No.8 Candy Apple rods may retail for only $24.99 but they certainly look and feel higher end than the price indicates


Candy Apple Reels/Combos: What good is a Candy Apple rod, without a Candy Apple reel?

The spinning reel will come in a 2000 and 3000 size and retail for $39.99. These models include 4 ball bearings with instant anti-reverse, a 5.1:1 gear ratio, aluminum spool, and EVA knob.
