Recommended Posts

Last couple days both Abu and Berkley social media have said a huge announcement is coming Thursday. Anyone have any idea what is going on?

 

my guess is that they have new ownership.

I don't know if this is new because I couldn't find a date in it.

Don’t have a clue but with the new changes to the BASS Elite Series announced & Major League Fishing it could be a new sponsorship opportunity.

Big news is....I'm their new vice president of trying stuff out. Its not an upgrade as far as jobs go. More of a horizontal move from what I'm doing now. Pay is in the form of all the lures I can stuff in a Walmart shopping cart. Casual Fridays are optional. Taco Tuesdays are mandatory.

All Abu and Berkley products will now (from this day forth) be under the name Zebco.

Just now finished reading this. I hope this doesn't affect the reel manufacturing in Korea. Pure Fishing was making some good reels over there for a few brands and every reel I have that was made there turned out to be good reels. (Pflueger President LP is one of my favorites)

Pure fishing particularly Abu Garcia and Berkley have had a great year and a HUGE week! Jordan Lee signs with them, then Justin Lucas and Josh Bertrand go 1-2 in the AOY race. 

 

Congrats to Justin Lucas and Pure Fishing

 

Abu Garcia  for life

 A game changer in the industry. In a few years every manufacturer will have a version of the NedWop. Skeet Reese will be the spokesman for the Original NedWop. Versions will be made in crankbait and spybait form with down imaging, structure scan and its own mini power pole for those windy days. Trust me, it will revolutionize the way we look at lures, line, barometer pressure and fish.
