Fishing products are ever evolving. There’s always something new to try – whether it’s a favourite lure in a new colour, a new technique or accessory, or the latest in technology to help make your time on the water more efficient. In this blog, SAIL Fishing Ambassador, Ashley Rae, highlights some new fishing gear products that have recently been added to our SAIL locations and online store.
Newly added this year, Infini is a lineup of Canadian-made soft plastics available exclusively at SAIL. This collection includes 9 different profiles with techniques geared towards trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, and panfish.
Here are some of the standouts in this collection:
This 5.5”/ 2-2/3 oz lure may appear as a regular glide bait but it has a unique feature. The hooks are fastened on a titanium wire that releases from the body of the bait. On the hookset, the hook rig will release from the body, providing direct contact to the fish. This provides a better hook-up ratio and less chance for fish using the lure as leverage to shake off. The durable rig is built with 100lbs of titanium wire and features a solid connector ring, heavy-duty split rings and premium VMC Coastal Black round bend trebles. This lure was designed primarily for pike fishing.Shop
This Daiwa Tatula CT baitcaster reel was designed for a variety of fishing techniques, from soft plastics to crankbaits and beyond. It is a lighter weight reel at just 7.2oz. This reel includes Daiwa’s T-Wing System level-wind for smooth line release helping to prevent backlash. When the reel is out of gear, it allows for less resistance on the line, enabling further casts and less occurrence of backlashes.Shop
SAIL carries a wide selection of Garmin products, and have recently added some new fish finders to their lineup. As a Garmin user for my year-round fishing adventures, I find their products very user friendly, and the cutting-edge technology packed into these units never ceases to amaze me. There’s a long list of features on the ECHOMAP Ultra 122sv, but a few of my favourites are:
