New Gear:

May / June 2016

Climate Technical Gear


    Climate Technical Gear has been building commercial fishing clothing for more than 30 years. Not only do they build the gear in their own Canadian plant, but design it to fit the needs of a diverse work force exposed to harsh environments. Their newest line of commercial gear is the most durable yet. Built under the Sevaen brand, the Industrial Series jacket and pants are built with tear-resistant rip-stop 420D nylon outer shell with PU-coated polyester knit waterproof fabric. The outer shell provides market-leading protection against damage and abrasion while protecting the inner layer, keeping the garment waterproof. This rain set will stand up to some of the most demanding tests a professional can put it to, as demonstrated by the video they published showing a variety of tools trying to break down the shell.

OceanLED DMX Kit


    OceanLED introduces its XT Series and XP Series Underwater LED Lights and the OceanDMX App Light Control System, allowing simple color control from anywhere onboard the vessel from any iOS or Android mobile device or tablet. Both models' fixtures feature performance-driven, intelligent LEDs boasting a higher lumen output than previous models, for intense, super-bright color. They also feature a new bezel design. The marine-grade stainless steel housing on the XP Series fixtures is low profile, fully sealed for maximum fixture life and more robust for added protection and style. The DMX Mobile App Light Control System delivers hands-free limitless color-change technology with its simple multi-function and fully customizable automated control that allows you the freedom to create different lighting effects. The OceanDMX offers a touch RGBW color wheel to create virtually any color and a powerful, easy-to-use slider to conveniently adjust brightness, speed and sensitivity for static color, cycling through the color wheel, sound-to-light with audio, strobe effects and a motion-controlled feature that strobes as the vessels rocks on the waves.

Owner Jobu Hooks


    Ideal for trolling or chunking, Owner’s Jobu Big Game Hooks are designed to tackle the biggest fish in the ocean. While trolling enthusiasts will find them ideal for custom rigging large baits and skirted lures, those targeting tuna also can rig them with large chunk baits. Features include an extra-heavy, triple X-strong forged shank, deep throat bend and anti-corrosion black chrome finish. The Trolling Jobu features Rustop attached to its shank, which acts as a sacrificial anode to deflect corrosion away from the hook. Rustop extends the life of high carbon hooks, allowing anglers to troll for days with the same hook. When pitting becomes evident on the Rustop, simply replace it. Trolling Jobu hooks will eventually rust out, reducing mortality rates of released billfish. Other features include vacuum tin finish for improved corrosion resistance and Owner's patented Cutting Point that never needs to be sharpened. Sizes available range from 7/0 to 12/0.

Propstrip by Propspeed


    It’s common sense that fouling of propellers and running gear will slow a boat’s speed. Propspeed gives your props and running gear a long-lasting ultra-smooth surface, preventing fouling and giving you more speed. Sportfishing boat owners already know that Propspeed is an efficient and cost-effective way to keep their boats running at peak performance. Now there’s an addition to the Propspeed range with the new Propstrip. Propstrip is an efficient and cost-effective way to remove Propspeed prior to applying a new application of it. No more time-consuming, labor-intensive grinding as Propstrip does all the hard work for you. It’s as simple as painting on, waiting and then washing off. Once the Propstrip is removed the new coat of Propspeed can then be applied without any further sanding. Reduce your cost on the next haul-out with Propstrip - the quicker way to get your boat back in the water. Contact: Propspeed at 305-640-5869 or visit www.propspeed.com.

Taco Marine Carbon Fiber Outriggers


    Taco Marine’s new Carbon Fiber Outrigger Poles feature UV-resistant, clear-coated black carbon fiber poles construction with 316-type stainless steel collars and rings that are stronger and lighter than any aluminum poles on the market. Designed for use with universal or Taco Sport Fishing Grand Slam mounts that accept 1½-inch outriggers, the cylindrical design has the strength built into it to allow for today’s modern fishing techniques of pulling small dredges of ballyhoo, mullet or squids through the water at higher speeds that would be difficult to achieve with aluminum poles. A patent-pending swivel roller mechanism allows for live baits or artificial lures to have a more natural swimming action, which will result in hooking up more fish. The Tele-Outrigger version telescopes to less than 8 feet for bridge clearance, trailering and storage and is sold in pairs, with two models including 16 feet with double line rollers and 20 feet with triple line rollers.

Tightlines Tackle Rodholders


    Tightlines Tackle’s new TTC Rodholder incorporates the best features of the original CJ Marine rodholder with several additional improvements. Marine grade stainless steel construction throughout these rodholders includes four 5/16-inch by 3½-inch mounting bolts which are through-bolted and welded to the face plate, allowing the face plate to be completely smooth without visible screw heads. The liner is made from UV-protected PVC and is pressed in place rather than glued. The swivel base has been beefed up with a larger drag washer plus a larger stainless steel tension washer, allowing for a more secure tension setting, which reduces the need to retighten the drag swivel after heavy use. The backing plate has a loop for attaching a safety line and can be used as a template for drilling mounting holes. 90-degree and 15-degree models are available.

Tormenter Fishing Products Side To Board Shorts


    Tormenter Tackle announces the introduction of their newest highly styled and functional Board Shorts, which are made from a superior fast-drying four-way stretch fabric featuring sharp and distinctive colorful artwork of a gamefish’s profile down each hip and thigh. These shorts also include Tormenter’s signature four purpose-designed pockets, including one for fishing pliers that’s plastic coated Kevlar on the hip for easy access. A cell phone pocket is designed to fit all popular smart phones and styled for fast access. There’s also a large cargo pocket for a wallet, and an extra-deep pocket for keys, pocket change or other items. Other features include triple stitching on the seams, micro thread on the inseam for reduced chafing, top quality Velcro and premium zippers. Even-numbered sizes available range from 28 to 42 with patterns including marlin and yellowfin tuna with additional species available later this season.
