Free winterizing guide for your boat from BoatUS

Thursday, October 27, 2016

ALEXANDRIA, Va.— Water mistakenly left in a boat’s engine block to freeze over the winter is sure to become an expensive repair bill come springtime. As the ice expands, it can crack the block and ruin the motor, damage fiberglass, split hoses, or destroy a boat’s refrigeration system. To prevent a mishap while putting the boat away this fall, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), a boating advocacy, services and safety group offers the free 15-page “Boater's Guide to Winterizing.”  Read Full Story

Berkley Introduces Fusion19 Slow Turn hook

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

COLUMBIA, S.C.  - Berkley introduces a way to increase action to any presentation with the Fusion19 Slow Turn hook, part of the ICAST New Product Showcase later this month.

This uniquely bent fine wire hook produces a spinning action that leads to more strikes. With an exaggerated bend, the Slow Turn improves the action of lures even at the slowest trolling or retrieval speeds. 
The Slow Turn features an innovative bait keeper with high holding power for both artificial and live bait. This is key when trolling at higher speeds and results in less baits slipping off. 
The Fusion19 Slow Turn paired with a Gulp! nightcrawler is killer on walleye in any season. The distinctive hook is forged for increased strength and is available in four sizes. With a sleek, smoke satin finish and Slickset coating, the Fusion19 Slow Turn has an MSRP of $5.99 in a unique package.
