Rubber Ribbons

The Live Ribbonfish trolling lures from Williamson Lures produce the same snake-like action and appealing profile of natural ribbonfish. When trolled at two to six knots, the soft-plastic lures are irresistible to big predators, such as kingfish and amberjack. Rigged with Perma-Steel VMC hooks attached to a stainless-steel cable, Live Ribbonfish are available in black, natural and blue, and packs of two sell for $18.

The camera comes with a USB cable, a carrying case and wrist strap for extra protection. Available in yellow (shown) or green, the camera sells for $300. Bushnell; (800) 423-3537; www.bushnell.com.

The Straight Skinny

Ande Braid is a smoother, rounder line that helps anglers make long casts. In our field test, the Spectra fiber-spun braid had no memory and reduced the occurence of wind knots. With a smaller diameter than other braided lines, Ande Braid increases the line capacity of reels and is available in eight- through 125-pound-test. The line comes in teal green or hi-vis yellow (shown) and retails for $12. Ande Monofilament; (561) 842-2474; www.andemonofilament.com.
