It's ICAST time, kids, and once again I am on patrol this week, eyes darting too and fro at all the new fishing gear ready to roll off the line and pop up on shelves later this year or in early 2016. I have talked about ultra-realism in lures being a trend at the show so much that I'm honestly getting tired of debating how much difference it makes in catching fish verse fishermen. The reality is, because technology allows lure makers to create stuff that looks like the real thing, they will continue to do so. It has, after all, been the goal of lure makers since the dawn of time. And I say if you feel a swimbait that's a carbon copy of a yellow perch or trout gives you more confidence than one that's only kind of similar in color, fish it, because confidence is key. But last night at the new products showcase, I saw realism brought to a category of lure where it had not been before: spinnerbaits. This I'm not so sure about.
