New Rapala® Skitter V No. 13
For anglers who target big, toothy species, Rapala® presents a new size of the Skitter V that’s more than an inch longer than the original and comes armed with one more treble hook.
Great for going after inshore gamefish species, this topwater bait features an exclusive design that radically alters the action of the lure. Its V-hull body design combined with tail-weighted balance allows the lure to cut quick with a snap of the rod, ending with a soft long glide on slack line.
At 5-¼ inches, the new No. 13 Skitter V is 1-¼ inch longer than the original No. 10 model. Weighing a full ounce, it weighs a half-ounce more than the original. It’s armed with three No. 3 VMC® Black Nickel round-bend hooks.
The new Size 13 Skitter V is available in the same 10 color patterns as the original: Bone, Chartreuse, Chrome, Gold, Gold Chrome, Glass Ghost, Hot Pink, Red Ghost and Silver.
Sufix® 832 Advanced Superline® Coastal Camo
This winter, delight the anglers in your life with a gift that virtually eliminates frustrating line breaks:
Sufix® 832 Advanced Superline®. The line of choice for boating saltwater fish of all species and sizes in nearly any scenario, Sufix 832 is now available in Coastal Camo, an ocean-blue option perfect for fishing ocean-blue waters.
Sufix 832 Coastal Camo not only offers an ideal presentation that blends in the waters in which the world’s most coveted game species lurk, but it is also incredibly strong, sensitive and abrasion-resistant thanks to advanced braiding and fiber technology. Its proprietary braid of seven HMPE and one GORE® fibers woven 32 times per inch creates a nearly unbreakable superline that sets the market standard.
Available in strengths up to 80-pound test, Sufix 832’s increased sensitivity makes it easier to detect subtle bites, a quality any angler who has set the hook too late will appreciate. The line also offers the ability to make extra-long casts and does not stretch, so when the lucky recipient of this gift feels a strike, their target fish will be pegged almost immediately.
Storm® 360GT Searchbait®
To help anglers match the hatch on waterbodies flush with small baitfish, Storm® 360GT Searchbaits are available now in a 2-½-inch model pre-rigged on a 3/32-ounce jighead and armed with a No. 2 VMC® hook
Creating the ultimate illusion of natural movement, 360GT Searchbaits pair a lifelike, single-ball rattling jighead with a realistic, phthalate-free soft body with 3D holographic eyes and a toe-in boot tail that elicits fish-attracting action and vibration at any retrieve speed.
The 360GT Searchbait is the ultimate confidence lure and is designed to fish anywhere by all skill levels. It allows anglers to cover more water and doesn’t require advanced presentation, and it has a natural swimming action fish can’t refuse. Fishing it couldn’t be easier: simply cast it out and reel it in with a steady retrieve.
Along with the new 2-½-inch model, pre-rigged 360GTs are available in three additional sizes: ⅛-ounce jighead, 3-½-inch body; ¼ oz. jighead, 4-½-inch body; and ⅜-ounce jighead, 5-½-inch body.
All sizes are available in 11 color patterns: Chartreuse Ice, Gaga, Herring, Houdini, Hot Olive, Marilyn, Pearl Ice, Smokin’ Ghost, Smelt, Tru Blue and Volunteer.
