EDITORS NOTE: This gallery is large with more than 150 new products, so give it a minute to load or scroll slowly so the images have time to buffer to your device.
VMC Tokyo Rig
Taking the effectiveness of a drop shot and coupling that with the power of a Texas rig and you have the Tokyo rig. With premium components including a one piece solid ring connected to a premium rolling swivel allows the bait to move freely above the dropper arm, maximizing the rig’s action.

Insert your preferred weight on the shaft then bend the end of the shaft with pliers to secure weight on the dropper arm.

VMC Neko Skirt
Take your Neko rig to the next level with the Neko Skirt. With a two part skirt combining living rubber and silicone material to create an incredibly realistic and unique action underwater.

Available in sizes 2-2/0.
Rapala RipStop 12
The RipStop tail design creates a fast ripping, hard stopping, flashing swimbait action. Its forward motion stops on a dime, with a subtle shimmy before coming to rest, then ever so slightly lifts its head with a super slow rise. Now in a larger size with 3 treble hooks.
Rapala 60-inch Retractable Ruler
Spring loaded retractable ruler for easy storage with oversized, easy to read numbers, in ½” increments up to 60”. It has a non-reflective surface to ensure lengths show in photos, made from a long-lasting, UV protected, waterproof material. To frost the cake it has a flip-up nose board for accurate measuring.
Storm 360GT Searchbait Swimmer
This new swimbait has a molded diving lip that adds a crankbait action and depth control. Exclusive VMC hook with extended “leg” on line tie to further enhance the action. A 60 degree angle keeps the lure swimming perfectly and a life-like rattling jig head provides an un-rivaled presentation. The Swimmer jig head has an optional hanger on the bottom which allows customization with stinger hooks or blades. Like all of the 360GT bodies, the 360GT Searchbait Swimmer has entry and exit marks for the hook which make it the easiest swimbait to rig perfectly every time. Each package contains a pre-rigged Swimmer with 2 extra bodies.
Storm 360GT Jigs - Heavier Weights
To compliment the current lineup of 360GT Searchbait jigs they’ll now be available in heavier weights. The 3.5” Searchbait can now be used with a 1/8 or ¼ ounce jig head, the 4.5” with a ¼ or 3/8 ounce jig head and the 5.5” with a 3/8 or ½ ounce jig head.
MSRP: $3.99 for 1/4oz, $4.49 for 3/8oz and $4.99 for 1/2oz
Sufix Advance Monofilament
Is this braid or mono? It’s a little bit of both and the result is the most abrasion resistant, supple and sensitive monofilament ever. Advance mono provides 50% lower stretch than standard monofilament, incredible abrasion resistance, superior sensitivity, smooth long casting, unbeatable knot strength and low memory. Following in the footsteps of 832 Advanced Superline, Sufix now revolutionizes the monofilament world with a line that has superior abrasion resistance, yet is extremely supple and sensitive. Available in 4,6,8,10,12,14,17,20 and 25# test in 330 yard spools.
Terminator Shudder Bait
The Shudder Bait has a custom designed swimming lip, combined with a lower positioned head to create an erratic, hard pounding, sweeping action. Amplified water displacement generated by the swimming lip emulates feeding predatory fish. The lifelike interchangeable silicone skirts in baitfish patterns allows you to perfectly match any situation and the premium VMC hook and snap ensures you land ‘em all. The action of this bait is almost that of a Colorado bladed spinnerbait and has become a go-to presentation when faced with dirty water. Available in 9 colors and in 3/8 and ½ ounce.
MSRP: $ 6.99

The Mermaid is the perfect “transitional” lure between the Flappin’ Hawg and the Cowboy. The body provides that large, bulky profile that mimics crawdads and bottom-feeding minnows. The legs, with their outward curl, fold into themselves during the fall, making the Mermaid look longer than it is, providing a tight, fast, vibrating action that minnows produce when trying to flee.This bait excels used alone on a jig head dragged along the bottom, or Carolina rigged. Add the Mermaid as a jig trailer or alone Texas rigged when flipping and punching. For Texas and Carolina rigs use a 3/0 EWG, but even a 4/0 or 5/0 straight shank hook will fit this bait.
Seaguar Smackdown Stealth Gray Braid
At ICAST 2018, Seaguar will unveil a new color of its ultra-successful Smackdown, designed specifically for the angler who demands a low-visibility main line. Welcome Seaguar Smackdown – Stealth Gray.
Smackdown is Seaguar’s eight-carrier braided line, sporting a high-density weave and an extremely round profile, making it exceptionally slick. It’s a difference that bass anglers will notice the first time that they present a bait with Smackdown spooled on their reel, a Seaguar exclusive feature that lets you cover more water with every cast so you can catch more fish each trip. That same slickness also makes Smackdown remarkably quiet as it passes through the rod’s line guides, and eliminates the wind knots that are commonplace with lesser braids. Smackdown is truly the ultimate braided line for a wide variety of everyday bass-centric applications.
Seaguar Smackdown – Stealth Grey packages all of Smackdown’s key features and capabilities into an extremely low visibility line that makes presentations appear more natural and is perfect for challenging fishing conditions, like clear water, cold water, or heavily pressured fish. Anglers no longer need to choose between stealth and strength – Smackdown Stealth Gray provides everything they need.
Smackdown – Stealth Grey will be available in seven popular tests, ranging from 10 lb test (2 lb mono diameter equivalent) to 65 lb test (25 lb mono equivalent) in 150 yard spools. Look for Smackdown – Stealth Gray on shelves in early 2019 with MSRP $29.99.
Seaguar Smackdown Flash Green Braid
At ICAST 2018, Seaguar will reveal a new color of its versatile Smackdown, engineered to exceed the expectations of finesse anglers who detect bites by watching their line. Introducing Seaguar Smackdown – Flash Green.
Seaguar Smackdown is an eight-carrier braided line, manufactured with a high-density weave to give it an extremely round profile and an incredibly smooth finish. You’ll appreciate those differences every time you present a bait with Smackdown spooled on your reel, advantages that let you cover more water with every cast, so you can catch more fish each trip. Smackdown’s slick finish also makes it remarkably quiet through the rod’s line guides and eliminates wind knots. Smackdown is truly the ultimate braided line for bass anglers.
Seaguar Smackdown – Flash Green assembles all of Smackdown’s key advantages and capabilities into a high-visibility braided line that is perfect for finesse applications and other times that strikes are detected not by feel, but by sight. Combine Smackdown – Flash Green with a Seaguar 100% fluorocarbon leader to enjoy the best of both worlds: slick, strong, and highly visible above the water; supple, abrasion-resistant, and nearly invisible below.
Seaguar Smackdown – Flash Green will be available in four popular tests, ranging from 10 lb test (2 lb mono diameter equivalent) to 30 lb test (8 lb mono equivalent) in 150 yard spools. Look for Smackdown – Flash Green on shelves in early 2019 with MSRP $29.99.

Mustad Triangle Catfish Hooks
Reminiscent of the awe-inspiring angles of stealth technology, Mustad’s Triangle Concept (MTC) is a complex merging of wire shapes.

From professional angler Randall Tharp:
The ARK Tharp Series is comprised of 12 rods (2 spinning, 3 composite and 7 casting models). Each was built to my exact specifications to fish specific techniques that I use to do my job at the highest level on the Bassmaster Elite Series.
This project was a lot more than testing a few new blanks and putting my name on them. I took this opportunity to use my knowledge, working with an amazing company and the very best in the business overseas to build an innovative and affordable line of rods. We utilized new materials and components that I am confident will give me a competitive advantage on the tournament trail. I flew half way around the world to ensure each model is perfect for the task that I designed it for and couldn’t be happier with the results!

Crappie anglers were asking for a better solid body tube jig for vertical jigging and casting applications.
