New Gear: May / June 2015

Fathom Fish Weights


    Banged and scratched transoms, hulls and decks are soon to be a thing of the past as Fathom Offshore has introduced a proprietary nonslip, no scratch, coated fish lead. These new weights are not only functional, but are offered in a variety of colors to complement your dredge. The baked-on coating creates a soft rubber-like texture that not only helps protect your hull and other fiberglass surfaces from accidental damage, but also keeps the weight from sliding on deck in rough seas. The hydrodynamic shape of the fish creates a drag-free track in the water while maintaining a low position for your dredge or baits. A must-have when dredge fishing or as a downrigger ball, all sizes have flared eyelets for extra strength. The weights are available in 6-, 8- and 10-pound sizes in six stock color options while custom colors can also be applied if desired.

Pelagic Sandals


    Pelagic’s new Kona Leather Sandal was inspired by a love for the ocean lifestyle with a little added dose of aloha culture.  Constructed from 100 percent genuine leather, this sandal offers an anatomically correct arch support foot-bed for a custom fit, and foam-cushioned midsole for added padding. Featuring an authentic marine-inspired tribal pattern from Hawaiian artist Carol Lynne on both the non-chafing comfort strap as well as the gum-rubber, nonmarking outsole, these sandals are durable and perfect for any sun-drenched occasion, at sea or on beach. Sizes available range from a men's 8 to 13. Contact: Pelagic at 949-642-0646 or visit www.pelagicgear.com.

Rugged Shark Starboard

The Hexagrip rubber traction nonmarking outsole pads provide sure footing on even the slickest decks. Included in the lightweight outsole system is the H2Flo-Vent technology, which circulates air in and drains water from the shoe. The midsole is comprised of a lightweight compression molded EVA, cushioned, breathable full-length foot bed for total foot comfort. The Starboard comes in white with navy blue accents and is available in medium width, in full- or half-sizes ranging from eight to 11 and full size 12 and 13.

Tauten Linecutter


    Cutting braided line can be a hassle as knives, standard line-cutting tools and pliers all leave frayed ends.

LineCutter is a high-performance fishing line cutter that is purpose-built to reliably cut braided lines ranging from 8- to 250-pound test and leave a clean-cut end.

Toro Tamer Poppers


    Toro Tamer has introduced a new line of surface poppers for 2015 and they are available in three sizes ranging from 4½ to 8 inches. The two larger models feature VMC single hooks while the smaller version is rigged with treble hooks. The head shape has been refined from the previous generation of lures and provides a rounder head to produce greater splash which will prove beneficial to those fishing from large long-range boats that are much higher off the water than traditional craft. All three sizes are thru-wired, rigged with 200-pound split rings, sonically welded for durability and feature finish patterns that are stunning and effective. While anglers often fish poppers using spinning gear, the 200 size is easy to cast with conventional gear. Designed for a wide range of surface feeding species these lures are available in five effective color patterns including skipjack, pink ghost, blue mackerel, ahi and sardine.
