Bassmaster Senior Writer Louie Stout recommends the Lunkerhunt Lunker Frog. With swimming legs that extend on the retrieve and retract on the pause, bass are destined to find it as tasty as our writer does.  

Iaconelli-designed Back Slide from Berkley

Jul 9, 2013

Ike is doing his thing again, he designed this lure. With Berkley's new Dual Density technology this soft bait concept will be tricking lunkers into striking a lure that will retreat back under cover while on a slacked line. Looks like Ike wants everyone to get in on the power-fishing tactic.

Cool factor

Jul 9, 2013

In Las Vegas right now, where it is 106 degrees as I type this (not joking one bit), clothing that keeps you cool is a must. Ex Officio boasts that it actually cools you down 5 degrees with its Sol Cool Ultimate Hoody. It ventilates the head, pits and sides. And it protects the wearer from the sun with UPF 50+. The hoodies come in versions for men and women. They retail for $75 each.

Crazy CrawZ

Jul 9, 2013

The Z-Man Turbo CrawZ is said to be a great addition to any Texas rig, Carolina rig or swim jig setup (also a great ChatterBait trailer). Designed to thump at the slightest rod movement or reel crank, the ElaZtech material should allow the ClawZ to rise up of the bottom in a natural defensive pose.
