Tackle & Equipment:

I get asked more and more by customers about what gear, and tackle etc that I use, and/or recommend for boat fishing.

So, I thought I’d compile a little list that can be easily found for future reference.

Below, you will find everything from braid, leader, hooks, lures, rods and reels, fish de-scaler etc...

If there are some items that you may be interested in that aren't on the list, please ask and I'll add them.

For clarity, I do have an affiliation with Sidewinder, and recommend their lures because I think they’re great, but I have included some other lures in the list below for contrast.
