UPCOMING EVENT: YETI FLW COLLEGE FISHING - 2019 - Sam Rayburn Reservoir

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

New Terminal Tackle

This innovative new drop-shot rig eliminates line twist with a built-in swivel. A new Nano-smooth coating and tournament-grade wire allow for better hooksets. The rig comes in four hook sizes. It has not yet hit the market but is expected to retail for $8 to $9 for a three-pack.

Don’t skimp where it counts the most – terminal tackle. Hooks, weights, jigheads and the like are the keys to taking all those new soft baits and swimbaits to the fish, hooking them and getting them in the boat. Here’s the best stuff we saw on the floor at ICAST 2015.

The 401Kraw Jig's head is shaped like a craw tail, making it perfect for any soft-plastic craw bait. The jig is designed to be fished in a similar way as a square-bill, where it is always moving and keeps in constant contact with the bottom. 
The jighead comes with a 4/0 Gamakatsu hook and is available in four different colors. It's sold two to a pack for $6.99.

Greenfish has expanded on its swimbait jighead lineup with 3/4- and 1-ounce sizes. The larger sizes are perfect for 6- and 7-inch swimbaits. Of course, the most unique feature is a small spinning prop on the nose that moves more water and makes extra noise to draw in fish. 
The Shin Spin retails for $4.29.

Eagle Claw has made two improvements to its line of hooks. First is the addition of Teflon coating, which protects the hook and gives it a slick feel. It helps with hook penetration and reduces rust. The second addition is a clip in the packaging that runs through all the hook eyes and holds the hooks together. It is a simple addition but adds a valuable organization tool. 
The new line of hooks is expected to hit the market in the next couple of months and should sell for around $4 for a five-pack.
