Charger Boats - Put in with the best!

Charger Boats

For over 40 years, Charger has built some of the most durable, fishable boats on the water. But we’re always looking ahead for new ways to build the best boats for you.

We’ve added scores of design, performance and comfort features to our new lineup of Charger boats, including all-composite construction, heated seats, infrared night vision with removable camera on bow and more. Best of all, we put that four decades of experience, refinement and innovation into every Charger boat.

Whether you’re a seasoned tournament professional or a weekend warrior, we've built a boat that gives you a distinct advantage when you’re tearing down the lake, taming a big river, or trolling the banks of a tournament winning cove. You’ll feel confidence in your Charger Elite every time you hit rough water, make the quickest run back to weigh-in, or land the first keeper of the day.

McStick 115
Designed by Elite Series pro and stickbait master, Mike McClelland, the Spro McStick 115 is the newest offering in McClelland's signature line of baits. It delivers the same fish catching attributes as the McStick 110 and 95 - now in a bigger size designed to attack the shallows. More buoyant than the 110 and 95, it slowly rises on the pause and dives to a maximum depth of four feet. Its added size and heft, as well as, its patented weight transfer system also allow you to make longer casts and cover more water. Bass hiding in the shallows don’t stand a chance against the new Spro "Mike McClelland" McStick 115. Also comes equipped with three super sharp #5 Gamakatsu treble hooks.

Bronzeye Shad 65
Designed by Bassmasters Elite Series professional, Dean Rojas, the Spro Bronzeye Shad 65 took over 15 months and four different prototypes to get absolutely perfect –and when we say perfect, we mean PERFECT. Throw it in open water, around trees, rip-rap, and rocks, the Spro Bronzeye Shad 65 effortlessly walks over the water completing turns in excess of 180-degrees. The walking action is built right into the bait and it is designed to move with minimal effort from the angler. For even more action and stability, the Spro Bronzeye Shad 65 is equipped with two vertically set, tri-colored tails on the backside. Like the Spro Bronzeye Frog, the Spro Bronzeye Shad 65 is also delivers incredible collapsiblity to expose its sticky-sharp 4/0 Gamakatsu frog hook.

John Crews Baby Fat John 50
Delivers a highly-specialized action that is made for tempting bass in shallow waters. Reaching a maximum depth of 2-feet, the Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50 is built with a precisely angled, fiberglass bill that allows it to kick left and right with a wild hunting action, and then re-align and return to center. This action has been specifically formulated to imitate a fleeing baitfish making every possible attempt to evade pursuing predators. Effective on a steady or blistering-fast retrieve, the Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50 is equipped with two sticky-sharp Gamakatsu treble hooks that ensure rock-solid hook sets.

Side Kick Lure RetrieverSide Kick Lure Retriever

The Side Kick team, like most fisherman, just got tired of losing baits in trees, getting recovery lucky, breaking props, damaging rod tips, leaving behind submerged fishing equipment, and being attached to the line during underwater bait retrieves. Using sound engineering principles and addressing the problems as a system of challenges, the Side Kick team made a remarkable discovery. The answer to all these issues was simply the combination of every fisherman's favorite recovery technique; reeling down to the bait and shaking the bait loose. A poor man's answer to maneuvering the boat in shallow water. The Side Kick solution; a simple broom threaded attachment to a common telescoping pole.

The Side Kick Lure Retriever encompasses a simple broom threaded attachment to a common telescoping pole, a flat ended surface body manufactured from industrial grade plastic and a stiff spring. The flat end surface of industrial grade plastic is nearly indestructible and the groves of the spring are at a 90 degree angle. This mimics the rod tip, line, bait-reel-down technique perfectly while doubling as a controllable dangling chain and a lost equipment ensnaring/recovery devise. For above water recovery, just reach up and snag the hooks in the right angle spring. For underwater recovery, lay the Side Kick Lure Retriever on a taught line between one of the spring’s coils, use gravity as the connecting force, and hammer or finesse the bait free.

Side Kick’s advantages over its competitors are; Side Kick works on ALL bait types using the same recovery technique, Side Kick sits on the line with no permanent attachment allowing for quick transformation between bait recovery tool and push pole, and Side Kick allows for pole customization based on fisherman needs.

Side Kick is a small company with BIG ideas. The Side Kick team firmly believes that our company’s future, like our customer’s bait recoveries, is no longer based on luck. Our slogan “GET’EM ALL BACK” was chosen for a reason. Fishermen who use the Side Kick Lure Retriever have increased their bait recovery confidence level to a point where fishing, and allowing their kids to fish, expensive lures is now an everyday option.

Gruv Fishing - Tackle Storage Done RightGRUV FISHING
Tackle Storage Done Right

Our world has changed significantly in the past century. Your tackle storage, on the other hand, has not. Compartment style tackle boxes have been the norm for as long as anyone can remember. Rather than effectively storing your gear, the tackle boxes on the market simply offer tangled hooks, damaged tackle, and chaos.

This ineffective method of tackle storage has been the norm, and at Gruv Fishing, we’re here to change the norm. The old school tackle box simply isn’t up to date. As a fisherman, you want the very best tackle and likewise you should have the very best tackle storage.

Using a patent pending, silicone anchoring technology licensed from Tacky Fly Fishing, we’re building a line of tackle storage solutions that is going to effectively store, organize and protect your tackle.

Ears Sun GearI NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN TO ME - YEP, BASIL CELL CARCINOMA. One day a spot appeared on my right cheek below my eye.
It was diagnosed as basil cell carcinoma. After a couple of scares like that I did some research. I found that the tops of my ears were also at risk. I was shocked to learn that tops of the ears are the third most prevalent area men over 55 get this deadly skin cancer. That why I created E.A.R.S. Sun Gear.
