The reels feature cutting-edge Shimano capabilities such as MicroModule Gear II for unparalleled smoothness and SilentDrive Technology for microscopic tolerance levels to reduce any handle play and eliminate any clicking noise in all moving parts. Shimano’s X-Protect design provides maximum protection in the harshest saltwater environments.

The new Stradic FL reels are in five models – 1000HG, 2500HG, C3000XG, 4000XG and C5000XG. MSRP: from $199.99 to $229.99

There lengths and powers offered to cover nearly any type of bass fishing technique, from cranking and flipping rods, to jig and worm, drop-shot and clear water tube rods. MSRP: $129.99

SHIMANO– SP ORCA Baby Subsurface Lure - Saltwater


Giving offshore anglers the ability to target finicky pelagic species on smaller baits, Shimano expands its ORCA saltwater lure offering with the SP-ORCA Baby subsurface lure. It slowly sinks in a horizontal position and has a tuna-enticing roll when retrieved with steady jerking motions. The small compact body (90mm) encompasses a heavy center weight attributing to long distance casts. Available in eight colors. MSRP: $19.99



There’s something special about going back to your roots. G. Loomis further expands its all-encompassing IMX-PRO bass rod series with the addition of 17 new ‘Classic Action’ rods – Mag Bass, Spin Jig and Classic Casting now joining the 47 technique-specific available.

The seven new Mag Bass (MBR) action casting rods are highlighted by magnum tapers and light tips to facilitate long cast and deep-water hooking abilities. The line-up includes 6’6”, 7’ and 7’6” rods, all with a parabolic action to absorb the energy of surging bass.


Originally designed for use with soft plastics, the eight IMX-PRO Classic Spin Jig (SJR) rods provide the best alternative for anglers who favor spinning applications where a casting rod is usually prescribed. In models for finesse techniques to power fishing, the SJR rods include 6’ models for vertical jigging, swimming lures, as well as smaller waters, standard 6’6” and 7’ rods, and 7’6” specifically designed for the growing use of hair jigs and spy baits for smallmouth.

The two 6’ IMX-PRO Classic Casting (CR) rods are the ticket when anglers need to make precise casts when fishing small topwater lure and small crankbaits or to pitch or skip a jig into tight quarters.

With the addition of the ‘Classic Action’ rods, the IMX-PRO series continues to be G. Loomis’ most extensive line-up of bass rods, now totally 64 different models for any bass fishing situation faced or any technique used. MSRP: from $325 to $345

G. LOOMIS – IMX-PROm Musky Fly Rods

Loomis’ new IMX-PROm musky fly rods offer ‘Conduit Core’ technology to remove excess blank weight keeping the rods dramatically light and yet powerful. G. Loomis builds in durability to handle big flies and big muskies with chrome single-foot guides and three chrome stripper guides, a custom aluminum up-locking reel seat, and cloud cork composite top and bottom ‘Magnum Grips’. 

Offered in an 11-weight (400-450 grain) and 12-weight (500-550 grains). MSRP: $625

POWERPRO – Moon Shine Braid


With a special process making it glow when illuminated by a blacklight, the new PowerPro Moon Shine braid benefits both anglers fishing at night to avoid the summer heat, and the fish they are pursuing. Using Super8Slick V2 braid as its core, the Moon Shine braid is targeted to the growing interest in nighttime bass fishing tournaments taking place most notable in Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Texas. With Moon Shine glowing under a blacklight, anglers can see even the smallest line movement and hopefully set the hook more often. Plus the new braid also has applications for others anglers, including any nighttime action when targeting catfish, muskie trolling and surf casting, and be used during day for those who prefer an easy-to-see high-visibility braid.

Available in 8- to 80-pound test – in 150 and 300-yard spools. MSPR: from $20.99

JACKALL – iSHAD Soft Plastic Lure


Jackall brings a new design to its legendary iSHAD soft plastic bait to target finicky bass on a drop-shot rig or jig head. With a tail bulge shape to keep it stable, the split tail design creates small vibrations. Two different salt compositions are injected into the iSHAD, with less salt on the top section so the bottom section is heavier and provides a more stable swimming action.

Offered in 2.8” and 3.8” sizes – eight different colors – MSRP: $4.99 package of 5

JACKALL – Keeburn Blade Bait

With its circuit board body design to offer the ultimate in vibration and movement, Jackall’s Keeburn blade bait will trigger strikes with either ‘yo-yo’ retrieves or vertical jigging, especially in colder water situations. It has an instantly strong wobbling action with the turn of the reel handle when being retrieved, plus has the stability to fall straight down with as subtle, fish-enticing flutter action. Offered in 3/8- and 1/2-ounces size – eight different colors – MSRP: $9.99 

Freshwater – Great Lakes, Walleye

SHIMANO – Talora Trolling Rods

The Talora rods now feature SeaGuide components along with SeaGuide reel seats. MSRP: from $99.99 to $139.99

SHIMANO – Compre Walleye Rods


Redesigned with input from walleye anglers from Lake Erie and Mille Lacs, and from Lake of the Woods to the western U.S. reservoirs, the new Compre walleye rods offer models to detect the most finicky bite, heavier actions when needed, and even a trolling rod to pull crankbaits – a comprehensive series for all types of fishing. Many of the standards sizes – 5’6”, 6’, 6’3”, 6’6”, 6’8” and 7’ – are offered in both one- and two-piece rods for both preference and easier travel use, such as that bucket list fly-in trip to Canadian wilderness lakes.
