ORLANDO, Fla. — Since Mark Zona is kind of the Oprah of bass fishing (hey, they’re both on TV and both worked out of Chicago), he decided to share his favorite things from ICAST 2019.
While Oprah’s list was a staple around Thanksgiving for gift ideas, Zona’s list is more the new ICAST products he thinks will be flying off shelves.
Of course, a jig he personally worked on gets top billing. “You get a jig, and you get a jig” is his thought of the Trokar Ned Rig heads with Pro-V bend hooks.
“The Pro-V bend, honestly, is one of the best Ned rig heads I’ve ever used,” he said. “It’s a smaller head being tungsten, and the bend in the hook is something you just don’t find in that style jighead. These are really, really, really bad to the bone.”
