The Future of Fishing: New Fishing Gear to Watch Out For in 2018

Fishing is one of man’s oldest pastimes. However, the sport has changed throughout the years. Advancements in technology have dramatically changed the world of fishing, and its up to us to keep ahead of the times. So, check out these new tools and devices that will revolutionize the way you fish in 2018. With the holidays coming up, maybe you can add some of them to your wish list.

KastKing BioSpool

A major part of fishing is sustainability. You never want to fish more than you need to, and you want to make sure the environment is exactly the same as you left it. Therefore, KastKing has developed a BioSpool made from bio-based wheat waste for their fishing lines. This BioSpool is a great addition to any outdoor daypack or backpack because it will decompose anywhere you put it. This will help you do your part in saving Mother Nature and ensuring the environment’s survival so that future generations can still enjoy the sport of fishing.

Berkley PowerBait MaxScent

Berkley has become a common household name for bass anglers in the past couple of decades. Their Power Worms have a taste that make fish hold onto the bait longer, allowing any angler more time to hook the big bass. However, now Berkley is adding another sense to their worm: scent. Berkley PowerBait MaxScent now adds an attractive smell to their bait so that a fish can easily track it. This will cutdown on the amount of time your bait is in the water, help you catch more fish, and ultimately make sure that you outshine your competition.


Voted the “Best New Fishing Electronic” by ICAST 2017, the SOLIX GPS is the first touchscreen device that uses fish-finding sonar at the megahertz range. Through its amazing technology, you will be able to see some of the clearest views of the water underneath you, extremely accurate fish details, and sharp target separation. It also uses Bluetooth capabilities to connect to your phone so that you can display messages right on the screen. With this new technology, you can always be sure that you’re in the right spot for the best fishing.

If you want to stay ahead of the competition, you might want to look into some of these new technologies. Take advantage of the holiday season and be sure to tell Santa exactly what you want.
