Here's another great new item that I found at the ICAST show. It's the Gear Grabbar. There are all sorts of racks that you can use to hang your lures from in your boat. In most cases it involves putting a hook into a hole. This is not the case with the Gear Grabbar. Bring the lure close to the Gear Grabbar and the magnets literally grab the hooks and holds the lure in place. It's a pretty neat idea.
I like it for other reasons. It can attach to just about any location you desire. With the magnetic hold of the lure, there's no chance of you getting hooked by pulling away a lure that was not quite all of the way out of the rack. And hanging the lures out of the way (and off the floor of the boat) is so easy.
You can use the Gear Grabbar in boats, canoes, pontoons, on docks, even on the side of your tackle box. Yeah, why keep on opening and closing the box to change lures. Attached a Gear Grabbar on the outside wall of your tackle box and when you're ready to go fishing, pull out a bunch of your favorite lures and let them hang on the outside of the box. This gives you less time looking and more time fishing.
