    Evinrude Launches New 150 HP Power Tiller

    Evinrude announced today the industry’s first 150 HP tiller controlled outboard with integrated power steering assist and digital shift and throttle, the E-TEC G2 Power Tiller. Designed with beginners to advanced anglers in mind, the new 150 HP Power Tiller is easy to use, even in the worst conditions.

    Evinrude makes your boat smarter.
    “While the competition is focused on releasing larger and larger engines, we spend our efforts developing products that matter to our core market,” said Tracy Crocker, president of the BRP Marine Group. “Because of the E-TEC G2 architecture, we are able to offer incredible features at a value that our customers appreciate. Unlike other manufacturers, our power tiller doesn’t require accessory power steering kits, additional batteries or recharging systems. This allows us to offer an elegant solution at a significantly lower price point in the outboard sweet spot – the 150 HP category.”

    Evinrude makes your boat go further.
    Combining the power tiller with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 Intelligent Piloting System, a suite of integrated engine features like iSteer, iTrim and iControl, instills confidence in all boaters. The 150 HP Power Tiller model has zero steering torque feedback and offers boaters exceptional running quality with precision performance. The comfortable twist-grip throttle has adjustable friction capability to fine-tune resistance. It is easy to control the running attitude of the boat with iTrim, as well as the thumb operated tilt and trim switch. The convenience of Touch Troll push-button operation for setting trolling speed is perfect for anglers. In addition, to reduce strain on the driver, the Evinrude E-TEC G2 Power Tiller has adjustments for both vertical and horizontal arm position, enhancing comfort and control.

    Evinrude makes your boat better.
    All Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines make boats stronger with up to 30% more torque, go further with best in class fuel efficiency, and cleaner with up to 75% fewer total regulated emissions compared to leading four-stroke outboard engines. They also make boats smarter with the most user-friendly ownership experience with no break-in period, one-touch winterization, and no dealer-scheduled maintenance for five-years or 500 hours. All Evinrude E-TEC engines come standard with five-year factory backed coverage and no engine oil changes – ever.

    Lowrance®, a world-leader in fishing electronics since 1957, announced today the launch of HOOK Reveal, the latest in the HOOK Series of fishfinder/chartplotters.

    The all-new HOOK Reveal makes fishing easier, delivering powerful performance with proven fish-finding tools including, Autotuning Sonar, SideScan and DownScan Imaging™ and now FishReveal™, which makes fish easier to see by combining the benefits of Lowrance CHIRP sonar and DownScan Imaging on one screen. Whether fishing a local spot or unfamiliar water, find the best fishing areas with preloaded US Inland mapping or map uncharted water – in real time – with Genesis Live.

    “HOOK Reveal brings a new level of fish-finding performance to the HOOK series. We are confident game-changing features like FishReveal and Genesis Live will help HOOK Reveal anglers have more success on the water.” - Knut Frostad, CEO, Navico

    Available in 9-, 7- and 5-inch models, HOOK Reveal includes one of Lowrance’s most popular features, FishReveal and its live-mapping solution, Genesis Live.

    Anglers will have an easier time seeing fish with FishReveal, which combines on one screen the proven target separation of Lowrance CHIRP sonar and the high-resolution images of fish-holding structure from DownScan Imaging.

    Genesis Live gives anglers the capability to create custom 1⁄2-foot contour maps of their local lake or uncharted water – in real time – on the screen of HOOK Reveal displays. Genesis Live maps can also be created and saved on HOOK Reveal non-mapping GPS plotters by placing a blank microSD card into the card slot.

    A simple interface and HOOK exclusive Autotuning sonar make HOOK Reveal easy to use. Anglers will spend more time fishing and less time reworking sonar settings with Autotuning sonar, which delivers the best sonar image every time by automatically adjusting settings as fishing conditions change.

    Whether fishing a local lake or unfamiliar water, HOOK Reveal makes it easy to pinpoint key fishing areas like humps, drop-offs and ditches, with a built-in, high-detail C-MAP US Inland fishing map with 1-foot contours on nearly 4,000 lakes. Optional chart upgrades include C-MAP, C-MAP Genesis, Navionics® and more.

    With HOOK Reveal, anglers can choose their preferred combination of display size, sonar type and navigation from TripleShot (High CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan Imaging) or SplitShot (High CHIRP and DownScan Imaging) transducers and mapping chartplotters or non-mapping GPS plotters.

    Ranging in price from $299 to $799, HOOK Reveal started shipping in late December 2019. For more information on HOOK Reveal or other Lowrance products, visit

    GILL: New Benchmark in Foul Weather Gear FFF Staff 01/22/20 04:33 PM

    New Benchmark in Foul Weather Gear

    Now available, GILL’s Pro Tournament 3L Jacket represents years of product development

    Wind, waves, rain, sleet, and snow… There’s nothing more miserable than getting wet, cold, and clammy on the water. And while there is a myriad of rain suits on the market, few live up to their advertised comfort and protection.

    Welcome GILL’s new Pro Tournament 3L, which represents years of product development and the greatest innovation in fishing jacket design in company history.

    The remarkable jacket is the result of feedback from GILL’s distinguished team of pros and other trusted product testers across the globe – apparel designed and constructed to the most serious standards on the water. The 3-Layer jacket comes complete with kill cord attachment loops, adjustable Vortex® Hood System and reflective accents.

    First introduced as part of their original Tournament Jacket series, Gill’s imaginative Vortex Hood solves several issues faced by anglers and boaters. “Originally, we engaged with our team of pros who shared their issues. Many of them wear a baseball or trucker style cap, hoodie, and then the waterproof shell with the hood up. Hoods inflate, caps fly off, so, we got to work on developing a solution,” says Matt Clark, Product Development Director, GILL.

    After designing numbers of different hood configurations in their U.K. product development office and shipping to the U.S. for testing, Gill ultimately settled on the current and incomparable Vortex Hood.

    “The Vortex Hood has a three-channeled construction with air chutes built into the hood itself. One goes over the top of the head and exits at the rear of the collar, and two vents down the side of the hood and out through the collar. You get a slipstream effect, allowing air to enter the front and exit out the back.

    “Look at it in aerospace terms. With an airplane wing you get the vortex effect when wind travels faster over the top of the curved surface. So, over the top of the Vortex Hood wind speed accelerates and the air is sucked out the back of the hood.”

    Another significant feature of the new Pro Tournament 3L is its revolutionary fabric design, guaranteed to keep anglers dry no matter what harsh conditions they face.

    “We’re introducing a new three-layer, all-in-one fabric system to sportfishing,” said Clark. “The system features a durable outer face that can put up with abrasions, scuffs and being worn in some tough conditions. And water just beads and rolls off it…

    “The inner layer features the waterproof, breathable technology; the barrier that stops water coming in from the outside, which is very important as it allows the fabric to breathe and transport moisture away from the skin. When you’re out all day on the water, conditions can turn warm and humid, but it’s still wet enough where you need a waterproof jacket. So, breathability makes all the difference.”

    [Linked Image from]

    Clark continues: “Lastly, you have the next to skin layer, a material that picks up moisture from the skin and starts the moisture transport process. It spreads moisture evenly across the fabric to dry much quicker.”

    Features galore and Gill’s all-in-one, 3-layer fabric system make the Pro Tournament 3L Jacket the new benchmark in fishing raingear.

    Pro Tournament 3L TECHNOLOGY:
    • Waterproof
    • Fully taped seams
    • Durable water repellent finish
    • 3-layer fabric construction
    • Reflective
    • Vortex hood

    Pro Tournament 3L FEATURES/BENEFITS:
    • Vortex hood technology streams airflow to keep hood in place
    • 3-layer waterproof and breathable fabric
    • Adjustable double cuff with PU inner seal for watertight comfort
    • YKK Aquaguard front zip

    The Pro Tournament 3L comes in two new colors (Graphite and Taupe) as well as sizing up to 4XL. It has an MSRP of $349.

It is judged by a panel of top naval architects, boat, interior and industrial designers, plus user experts. On selecting Ghost, judges said, “Ghost appears to have had every last detail of its performance pored over by its designers, from the way it functions and the noise it emits, through to its programmable foot controller.”

    “Our design team put their heart and soul into Ghost, and it’s thanks to their hard work and dedication that it has seen so much recognition,” said Knut Frostad, CEO, Navico. “We are so greatful for all of the judges, experts, media, dealers, anglers and our loyal customers who have been so supportive. We are looking forward to further triumphs in the years to come and the continued success of Ghost.”

    Jan 2020 New Smyrna Daytona Beach Backcountry Capt Michael Savedow 01/16/20 01:05 PM
    Winter 2020 is here with chilly water, regular “Florida” cold fronts coming through followed by north and west winds lowering our water levels and making the water nice and clear. East Central Florida winter conditions range from mild to chilly, during mild periods fish are more spread out through the backcountry along drop offs, in channels and in holes, a colder period after a strong cold front concentrates the fish more in a tighter schooling pattern. A couple cold water fish we are catching in winter are Bluefish and Sheepshead in addition to all the resident species which we catch year round, including Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper and more. Artificial lures become a better bet with clear water, the fish in the back channels can see it from a longer distance making lures more effective than in our cloudy water of summer. Repeat client Josh from Australia and now Orlando caught this beautiful 30” Redfish on one of his “Aussie” soft plastics off a back country drop off at our first stop this morning ……………..

    I even get to catch a fish every now and then, like this pretty Spotted Seatrout I got on a soft plastic lure during one of those chilly Florida winter mornings ……………

    Florida Pompano are a less common member of the Atlantic Jack family which happen to be very good eating as well as super hard fighters as are all Jacks, young Matthew from Ohio with a beauty he caught with me recently ……………

    [Linked Image from]

    Black Drum are a year around staple fish here in the back waters, most are school size ranging from 1 to 5 lbs. Always hard fighters with a spirited battle on light tackle for even the modest sized ones. Jackson from Ohio had a fun time with this one …………………

    Little Amelia was out with her family with me on a recent trip, catching many different backcountry species as usual including a few good Pompano …………….
