    Huk Attack

    The new Huk Attack won Best of Category in the 2017 ICAST New Product Showcase, and is the most engineered, purpose-built fishing shoe ever created. The Attack combines Huk’s GripX wet traction non-marking outsole, with the bullet-proof durability of a Fuzetek upper-support cage along with a unique insole drainage system, for all-day dry, non-skid comfort. “I didn’t want to come up with just a water shoe,” said Iiley Thompson, Huk’s vice-president of footwear who designed the Attack. “Everything we’re going to do will be purpose-built for fishing. That’s first, and then everything else comes after that.” The Attack is available in black, green and blue, and retails for $84.99.

    The Mag 12 Buzz Worm

    That two different professional anglers can fish a new 12-inch worm completely differently — with both catching solid numbers of quality bass — is a testament to the new Mag 12 Buzz Worm from Mister Twister.

    Deep Santee Cooper bream

    Bream aren’t often a primary target of anglers this time of year. And while it’s true that they aren’t as easy to find in November as they are in spring and summer, they are worth looking for — and not that difficult to locate as long as you know where to look. Santee Cooper is one place that the bream bite can be plenty hot, no matter how cool the air or water temperatures are once the leaves have fallen and winter begins taking over autumn.

    Kerr Lake catfish on fire

    Falling water temperatures plus plentiful blue catfish equals abundant catches this month at Kerr Lake on the North Carolina/ Virginia border. While techniques remain largely the same as summer, the fishes’ attitudes will be improved, and an angler who intercept them on their highways is in store for a big day.
