PRODUCT REVIEWS

Sunline Shooter Invisible camouflage line is made for high pressure situations and ulti- mate line invisibility. This fluorocarbon line has a three color line in every spool consisting of grays, greens and browns. By using three colors any direct line image scene by weary fish is broken up and blends with the cover you’re fishing. The company suggests tying your lure to the green section when fishing grass, the gray section when fishing rocks and the brown for fishing around wood. The multi colored fluorocarbon also prevents light transfer through the line. Clear fluoro- carbon is nearly invisible but there are situations when the sun hits the line at a correct angle and the light feeds through the fluorocarbon similar to a fiber optic cable. This multi colored fluorocarbon eliminates this issue and offers the highest degree of invisibility in a fluorocar- bon line. This is serious line for serious fisherman. Available in sizes from 4 to 25-pound – test, Sunline is the brand of choice for many top Elite Series and FLW Tour pros, it is designed to handle light line finesse as well as heavy handed flippin’ duties.

The official scent of Bassmaster Elite Series pro James Niggemeyer, BioEdge produces a range of powerful fish attracting scents which stimulate fish feeding. All of these products will help to attract fish, mask unwanted scents like gas and sun screen, stimulate fish to strike and provoke the fish to hold on to your lure. They are extracted from a range of natural baits with no artificial ingredients, from crayfish to shad to smelt and even frog, Bio Edge has the scent you need in one of two effective forms. BioEdge Potions are highly concentrated solutions of oils, pheromone, enzymes, amino acids and natural feeding stimulants. Each is available in a 2oz squirt bottle. Potions can be applied to live or cut baits, flies and soft plastic lures. Marinate soft plastics with a squirt of BioEdge Potion and they will absorb and slowly release powerful bait extracts for hours. A pipe cleaner soaked in the Potion and inserted into a tube lure has proven deadly on striped bass. BioEdge Wands are made with the same concentrated oils plus a solidifying agent. Very similar to a glue stick in function, they are mess free and do not spill. You can quickly and eas- ily coat your metal or hard plastic lures, sinkers, leaders and other terminal tackle with 100% natural long lasting fish attracting scent.
