River2Sea Spittin’Wa Catches Fish!

River2Sea Poppin Wa FrogThe new River2Sea Spittin’ Wa is a hollow body frog bait of two sizes that has unique keel shaped and mouth design which makes it has 3 in 1 function – Spit, Chug and Walk. The Spittin’ Wa is the frog for when you need a little more commotion.  A cupped, popping mouth with bubble jets that leave a bubble trail behind to draw more strikes.  Spittin’ Wa is extremely versatile, an excellent walking frog or use short, aggressive pops for a solid chugging sound.

We’ve had them in the store for a coupl weeks now and I can’t wait to get out on the water and try’em out. But since it’s cold right now, check out this video that shows how good it works!

Shimano CI4+ Casting Reel

APT has had the reels in stock now since they hit the market, and has quite a few customers who are fishing with the new Chronarch Ci4+ for several weeks now and it’s hard to not be impressed by the look, feel, smoothness, and performance of the reel that won Best in Show at ICAST this past summer.

It’s incredibly light, sleek and powerful and the SVS Infinity Braking System allows for nearly limitless options when it comes to adjusting the brakes. We’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from the customers who have purchased them. In several cases they have purchased more to replace their existing reels.

Wild card field tops out at 49

The Bassmaster Classic Wild Card, a 3-day tournament set for later this week at Lake Okeechobee, will feature a 49-angler field, well below the 175-boat field B.A.S.S. has targeted when it announced the event in October 2012. The winner of the tournament will claim the final berth in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.

The disclosure was made in a story posted at Bassmaster.com over the Thanksgiving holiday. B.A.S.S. typically does not publish field sizes or identities of registered competitors prior to competition. The event was open to all Elite Series anglers who failed to qualify for the Classic as well as anglers who competed in at least three Bassmaster Opens in 2013. The full field will fish the first 2 days and the Top 12 after day 2 will advance to the final day.

Among the 49-man field are 13 Floridians, a list highlighted by 9-time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year Roland Martin. Shaw Grigsby, another Florida native, and former Classic champion Boyd Duckett are among 19 Elite Series anglers in the field.
