Death Hook Spinners


Guide Dave Henning has been at the forefront of working with finesse spinner rigs for walleyes since they first hit the market in the 1970s. He offers his own extensive lineup, including many with spinning "death hooks." Check Death Spins, Death Prop Spins, Flashing Death, and Death Fin Spins at

Feather Dressed


From the Lazer Sharp lineup of hooks from Eagle Claw are two feather-dressed Platinum Black replacement treble hooks in sizes #6 and #4. Color options: white/silver and chartreuse/silver — $4.99 per 2-pack,

Polycarbonate Lure Boxes


Created with a polycarbonate shell that's durable in the extreme and with a clear cover, the interior is of silicone to anchor lures firmly, while magnets keep the lid securely closed. Gruv Boxes are available for Hardbaits ($30), Big Jigs ($30), and Micro Jigs ($18),

Rod Covers


SLIX Rod Covers, available in lengths from 5 to 9 feet, and in spinning and casting configurations, protect guides and avoid snags. Bands secure SLIX to the reel for travel, while a loop on the tip allows ceiling storage — $7.99,

Popular Demand


Back in production based on popular demand, the newest Bully is heavier, at 9/10 ounce, for long casts and fishing deeper water. There are nine color options, including models with genuine silver and 24K gold — $9.99 to $13.49,

Evair Boat Shoes


Perfect for fancy footwork on any boat deck, Shimano's Evair Boat Shoes are as comfortable as they are functional. Quick-dry fabric. Non-marking sole. Special EVA gripper material on the front of the sole to better work a trolling motor pedal. Two colors and sizes from 7 through 13 — $79.99,

Fish & Play Solera


New to the Skeeter lineup of Solera "fish and play" boats is the Solera 205, with lots of storage for gear, a ski-tow pylon, and a standup top for shade. The boat is rigged with a Yamaha VF250XA four-stroke outboard, Minn Kota Terrova 112-pound-thrust trolling motor, and Humminbird HELIX 7 electronics — $58,995,



The extensive lineup of Abu Garcia Veritas casting and spinning rods are among the most popular of all their products. Lightweight and perfectly balanced, they fish comfortably and extremely durable. Titanium alloy guides make casting a breeze — $99.95 to $119.95,
