ICAST, the world’s largest sportfishing trade show, is the premier showcase for the latest innovations in fishing gear, accessories and apparel and it’s going on in Orlando, Fla., this week. Here is a little sneak peek at what’s new this year.
Storm Arashi Glide Bait
After years of design and testing with Brandon Palaniuk across the United States and Japan, the Storm Arashi Glide Bait is finally here. It delivers a fine-tuned, consistent stable glide at any speed and is developed to sink slowly and respond to the slightest line movement. The Arashi Glide has a versatile action, triple-pin hinge construction merged with swiveling hooks for reduced leverage and is available with precision color patterns ending in an unbeatable masterpiece of a lure.
Sufix Advance Fluorocarbon
Try to create a fluorocarbon that blows away the likes of Terry Bolton, Jacob Wheeler and Seth Feider. Proven and tested by these anglers for years, new Sufix Advance 100% Fluorocarbon is developed with a proprietary Gel Phase Technology process that produces the ultimate handling, performance and clarity essential to the most discerning anglers.
VMC Bladed Hybrid Treble
VMC continues its momentum by applying new innovation to the 2019 Bassmaster Classicwinning treble hook. This new Ike-approved concept is a swivel and blade combination securely nested and enclosed on a VMC hybrid treble with a powerful epoxy resin. Take a bait and make it better with the extra flash and vibration created by this new treble. The hybrid treble is perfect for modifying crankbaits, swimbaits, topwater lures, spoons, jerkbaits and more.
Luhr-Jensen Coyote Cyclone Flasher
Luhr-Jensen brings a patent-pending design to a completely new and innovative accessory. The center “cyclone” blades on this flasher rotate independently, adding a strobing flash and vibration while the Coyote Flasher rolls in a wide elliptical pattern, imparting fish attracting flash and motion within a big water trolling application. Built with a kick fin to keep the flasher rolling over a wide range of speeds, the new Coyote Cyclone Flasher is available in 11 color patterns, including UV Bright colors and glow moon jelly patterns. The product comes in two sizes.
StrikeMaster Lite-Flite Lazer Drill Unit
The ultimate advancement for run-and-gun ice trolling. This drill unit is built with innovation from head to toe. Featuring a segmented flight molded with a proprietary blend of synthetic resins, a heavy-duty steel shaft, drill adapter and safety flange. The Lite Flite Lazer Drill Unit is ready for action with chrome-alloy stainless steel lazer blades. A lightweight drill, the Lite Flite Lazer is up to 3x faster than the competition. Speed and efficiency result in the most holes ever drilled with a 18v brushless handheld drill. It’s available in 6-inch and 8-inch models.
