New Braid and Fluorocarbon from Seaguar
If you know me, it doesn’t take much to get me excited about new gear. This is especially true when one of my favourite brands solves a problem facing numerous skinny water bass anglers. I’m talking about a new signature series of fishing line made specifically for flippin’, pitchin’, and punchin’ from Seaguar.
Black out = Lights Out
So, since about the time braided line hit the mainstream, bass anglers fishing in the junk have been using a permanent marker to black out the last couple feet of line. Gear companies have even created their own line of permanent black markers for exactly this purpose. The idea being that blacking out the line when you are fishing shade will decrease the chance of fish being line shy.
Well, why haven’t the line manufacturers just produced black braid?
Enter Seaguar with the solution. The Seaguar Denny Brauer Flippin’ series of braided line is black; so no more markers and re-applying to your line as it fades through use or break-offs. So, you take Seaguar’s already fantastic braid (I’ve been using Kanzen for quite some time) and then turn the lights out for a killer product targeting the shallow water angler.
Fluorocarbon line you say?
Yes, yet another line of fluorocarbon from Seaguar, who in my opinion already makes the absolute best fluoro going already. This line boasts super
abrasion resistance when fishing in the junk, and I have it on good authority that it live up to it’s name. FLW Gator League Pro Tim Zdrazil says to me on Twitter: “Fished a whole day practice after roughing the 30lb flouro early on sawgrass(aptly named btw) caught 8 in junk w/out prob”
So, my recommendation: Run out and grab some of this line while you can, as I bet it flies off the shelves in short order.
A note for my Canadian pals; this line won’t be available in Canada for a little while yet, however, you can order it through Tackle Warehouse or Bass Pro Shops in the U.S.
