New Fishing Lures and Products from ICAST 2021


Designed by Bass Pro Tour Pro, Aaron Martens, the Gamakatsu G Power Heavy Cover Worm Flip Punch Hooks are built to satisfy the demands of serious flipping and pitching enthusiast. Developed with an emphasis on hook penetration, the Gamakatsu G Power Heavy Cover Worm Flip Punch Hooks feature a shortened point length and a Nano Smooth Coat, which helps generate lighting fast hook sets. Manufactured using Gamakatsu’s TGW (Tournament Grade Wire), the Gamakatsu G Power Heavy Cover Worm Flip Punch Hooks stay sharper longer, while delivering 20% more strength per diameter. Tested, developed, and approved by one of the most discerning anglers in the industry, the Gamakatsu G Power Heavy Cover Worm Flip Punch Hooks are sure to become a staple among serious power anglers.

A scaled-down version of the original Gamakatsu Underspin, the Gamakatsu Under Spin Head Mini is ideal for smaller finesse presentations. It features the same sticky sharp Gamakatsu Finesse Heavy Cover 60-degree hook as the original just in a smaller #1 size. The hook also features the same wide gap design as the original, which means it has plenty of bite and still allows you to rig bulkier plastics. The streamlined head design boasts lifelike recessed eyes and gill plates for added realism, and the small chrome willow leaf blade comes to life with the slightest movement. The result is a presentation that fish cannot resist. Also equipped with Gamakatsu’s Spring Lock system, the Gamakatsu Under Spin Head Mini holds swimbaits and other plastics gently but firmly, keeping the presentation straight on the hook.

Designed by top-level professional angler and terminal tackle aficionado, Aaron Martens, the Gamakatsu G-Finesse Feathered Trebles feature premium feathers and complementary tinsel, hand-selected by Martens to tempt even the most finicky fish. Also featuring Gamakatsu’s TGW (Tournament-Grade Wire) construction, the G-Finesse Feathered Trebles are thinner, stronger, and sharper than hooks made of standard wire, which translates into fewer lost fish and better hook-up ratios. Gamakatsu’s Nano-Coat finish provides faster penetration as well for improved hooksets, and their Magic Eye design makes them easier to swap out and attach to your favorite baits. Add a little extra life and a whole lot of performance to your topwaters and spoons with the Gamakatsu G-Finesse Feathered Trebles.

Built to bust through the heaviest cover effortlessly, the Gamakatsu Tungsten Punch Weights help make sure no bass can lurk out of your reach. Featuring a special “weight forward” design, it promotes more downward momentum to punch through matted vegetation with maximum efficiency. To help keep your line in the water longer, the Gamakatsu Tungsten Punch Weights integrate a G-Shield composite insert that offers 360-degrees of knot protection. Not only does the insert offer a serious dose of defense for your line, but the G-Shield insert also has a wider base so your hook’s eye can recess into the weight creating a more compact and streamlined profile. Wrapped up in a subtle matte black finish that resists chipping and flaking, the Gamakatsu Tungsten Punch Weights are a smart addition to your favorite punching rig.
