Innovision 585 Explorer

Making waves in the alloy boat market, or rather, cutting through them, Innovision boats offers a genuine point of difference with its unique bow design and customised build quality. Take a look at the attention to detail on this particular 585, just completed for a discerning customer who wanted everything fully loaded. There are some unique and very nice details and features on this boat. From rear deck winch, to retractable rod leashes, there’s not much more you could wish for on a mid-sized alloy rig. Simon Minoprio, founder of Innovision boats, takes a walk through the boat’s features and benefits, and shows you just what this boat builder can achieve if that is your brief. The 585 sits in the mid-range for Innovision, and should be on your list of boats to look at if a stable, smooth riding platform, with lots of fishing space, is what you want.

Shimano OCEA Sardine Waver slow jigs

Here’s a red hot looking jig freshly out from the team at Shimano Fishing. At NZFW we love our slow pitch jigging, and these new releases from Shimano promise to be the real deal. As soon as we have a good field test under the belt we will be reporting back, but if looks could kill, these lures will be pure magic.

It’s officially marlin season so here’s something a bit different in the boutique lure department to set you apart from the rest. Aloha lures are custom made in Hawaii by Captain Erik Rusnak (A.K.A Merlin) using the information and results gained from 25 year’s game fishing. Certainly looking every bit the part, these lures have already been proven deadly in NZ waters.

Berkley Jig It microjigs

Relatively slow to gain in popularity when compared to soft baits and kabura jigs, microjigs are actually very effective on a huge range of fish and can easily be fished using soft bait or light overhead gear combos. They offer a lot of fun on light gear, and there will be times when they are the most effective lure in the arsenal. When the anchovy schools are running, and the fish are actively feeding, microjigs can be deadly.

The ABU Veritas has been one of our favourite rod patterns over the last few years. In 2018 it looks even better than ever with key improvements to guides, grips and taper dynamics. This is a sensational rod to turn to for all spinning work and soft baiting or fishing microjigs.

350 reasons for serious consideration

Freakishly fast, big displacement DF350A four-stroke stokes ambitions of Suzuki on both sides of the Tasman. So, you think you’ve seen it all before? Be assured that you haven’t. Suzuki’s new big boy on the block, the DF350A, unveiled to New Zealand Fishing World at a recent Noosa-based media day, certainly caught us by surprise.
