All of the raffle ticket proceeds are given to the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation, which provides support to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and college scholarships to deserving students.

I’M LOGAN IT was created in memory of Logan Matthew Kushner, who passed away in 2012. The Foundation aims to help young people establish healthier self-esteem through acts of kindness and mentorship – values by which Logan lived.

Best Outrigger Pole: Carbon Fiber or Aluminum? Plus, Step-by-Step How to Rig it.

Tele-Outrigger poleThe best outrigger poles are carbon fiber because they are much stronger and lighter than any  aluminum pole on the market today. Why does that matter? Taco Marine’s carbon fiber outrigger poles easily pull dredges of ballyhoo, mullet or squids through the water at high speeds – which is difficult to do with aluminum poles.

Plus, only Taco Marine’s carbon fiber outrigger poles have an innovative swivel roller design mechanism that pulls the bait into a more natural swimming action. What’s more, it’s easy to rig, telescopes to less than 8 feet and includes a nylon mesh carry bag to protect the poles. For more information about these innovative award-winning poles, click here on Carbon Fiber Poles.

The Taco Marine step-by-step video below shows you how to set up the outrigger cords, attach the swivels and pulleys, set the tension on the poles, install the outrigger cords to the gunnel as well as how and where to attach your fishing line.

Time to winterize your boat or are you still fishing?

If you are up North and starting the process of winterizing your boat, don’t forget to pull off the prop and inspect it. Starting out the spring with a poor functioning engine caused by unforeseen fishing line wound around the prop is less than an ideal start to the boating season. If you live in the South and continue to sport fish, every time is a good time to check the prop for tangled fishing line. This short video clip from Ship Shape TV shows a quick and easy way to remove fishing line and inspect the prop.

Santa picks his favorite bag and pole.

Neptune Leaning Post bag

Santa traded his big red bag for the handy Taco Marine Neptune Neptune Storage BagCarry-All Gear and Tackle Storage Bag. Why? It’s tear-resistant and keeps presents, gear and tackle dry because of the clever drainage points throughout the bottom. It also fits inside Taco Marine‘s Neptune II Leaning post. There’s plenty of interior and exterior pockets to store tools, cell phones, sunglasses, and even sun block for his days off.

Tele-Outrigger poleSanta’s also carrying Taco Marine’s new, Carbon-Fiber Tele-Outrigger Pole! The first pole of its kind,  this innovative design is much stronger and lighter than any  aluminum pole on the market today. Santa can now pull dredges of ballyhoo, mullet or squids through the water at high speeds – difficult to do with aluminum poles. The swivel roller design mechanism pulls the bait into a more natural swimming action. What’s more, it’s easy to rig, telescopes to less than 8 feet and includes a nylon mesh carry bag to protect the poles. And Santa is picky about his poles, especially the one up North.
