ICAST 2017 Standouts

ICAST 2017 Highlights. Awesome solution for storing or customizing push pole as needed: the new High Tide multi piece system from Blackfin Rods. It’s a carbon fiber modular pole expandable from 18 to 26 feet, with finely engineered carbon and polyurethane screwlock ferrules and a carrying case. Great value at $799. Okuma has spinning drag technology on lockdown. The new Coronado bait-feeder series features the Dual Force Drag, with carbon washer stacks topside as well as (visible here) a giant disc beneath the spool, and another disk on the shaft. The reels also feature a unique recessed bait feeder control for the ultimate livebait presentation. Big fish? Hook ’em and submit ’em. Kwanza Henderson, from Old Town Canoes, and Dee Kaminski, with Native Watercraft, immediately recognized the potential use of this item!
