TackleTour's "Gear Up For Summer" Buyers Guide
(Shimano Banar Boat Bags) No expensive James Bond multi-pocketed
tackle bag this season, we are simplifying things with the unpretentious yet
highly functional Shimano Banar boat bags. These bags feature a waterproof soft
bottom, EVA handles on both ends and a convenient mesh pocket inside the top
lid. They are designed to stow everything from extra clothing, reels, camera,
GPS units, or any other gear that needs to stay dry, and that includes tackle.
There are two sizes the medium is 15.5" x 10.5" x 12" and the larger bag is 19"
x 12" x 13".
What could Ms. Mari have inside
the Shimano Banar bag?
Even the medium sized bag can hold four Plano 3700
size boxes, or Shimano's own 370 boxes. Zander and JIP have used the Banar bag
for two straight seasons, and the bags have travelled over borders and been
through some very nasty weather. The Banar bags double as portable tackle bags
and gear holders, and the staff has used them to protect camera equipment in
pouring rain on a number of occasions. The medium sized bag retails for 39.99
and the large boat bag is only 10 dollars more. Both the
medium sized and
large Shimano Banar Boat bag are available at Tackle Warehouse.
How about some full size Shimano
370 boxes loaded with the latest frogs and crankbaits
(Izorline) Our pick this summer in the line category is Izorline,
these lines offer exceptional performance qualities without the hefty price tag
that usually accompany other premium lines. There is an Izorline for just about
every application. The "Platinum" line is designed for tournament anglers, and
not only handles well but resists abrasion equally as well.
Izorline has a great assortment of
premium lines for more aggressive prices than the competition making it among
the top choices for higher end lines with value in mind
Izorline's XXX Super Co-Polymer is made out of space age materials
resulting in a line that is Xtra limp, Xtra Strong, and Xtra tough. Finally,
Izorline's Premium Spectra is designed to be extremely strong for frog fishing,
extra sensitivity when fishing contact baits, and can be used for a wide array
of saltwater applications.
Tackle Warehouse has all three of these lines in stock.
What are you thinking Ms. Casey?
The Girl's Pick:
(Swimbait Necklace) With the Editor's picks all entered the TT Girls
decided to make a pick of their own. While Ms. Casey and her friends liked the
new rods, thought the latest swimbaits were cool, and even had some fun sporting
the latest TEC tools, there was only one thing that they just couldn't do
without... the lucky swimbait necklaces!
The Lucky Swimbait necklace is Ms.
Casey's top pick this summer season
A lot of the top tournament pros have been sporting this new charm, the
first few were given to pros including Ike, Ish, and Skeet Reese at the Classic
and we all know what happened there. Brent Ehrler also was wearing the necklace
during his recent win in the first Walmart FLW Series National Guard Western
Division event of the season on Lake Havasu with a four day total of 57 pounds,
11 ounces. Whether you believe in the lucky "mojo" or not, these necklaces are a
hip accessory for big bait fans, and makes a great gift for anglers (or your
very understanding significant other). These necklaces are made by Eddie
Rodriquez of Ace Jewelry in Las Vegas, and the original limited edition
necklaces were made out of silver with a green diamond eye. There is now a new
version available that retails for about as much as a single premium swimbait at
$59.99 per charm. These new necklaces are still .925 silver but now have a ruby
eye instead of a diamond, and are available at
The TT Girl's say goodbye for now,
but they will be back... you can count on it
Thanks for joining us here at TackleTour for our
Summer Buyers Guide, and while the Summer is still weeks away we are already
excited about getting on the water for some warm weather fishing. We know the TT
Girls are geared up and ready to go, how about you?
