Bass Fishing: What’s New In 2022?

Every year big names in the fishing industry like Garmin, Bass Pro Shops, AFTCO and more, discover new ways to take their products to the next level and this year is no exception! We’re seeing upgraded baits from the likes of Secret Lures and SPRO, the best line options from Sunline, and AFTCO is breaking barriers with their newest Reaper hoodies! So strap in, because this episode of Americana Outdoors Presented by Garmin is going to cast all of the latest advancements in the fishing world your way!

First up, we’re going to take a look at how the Garmin Livescope™ changed the way anglers approach the waters. Livescope will give you all the information you need about what’s happening below your boat, and it’s a must have for any angler.

When it comes to new baits on the market, industry leaders certainly aren’t disappointing this year. From Secret Lures with their new Stupid Craw™ that’s proving to be irresistible to fish, to SPRO developing the latest addition to their amphibious line of baits with their new Flappin Frog 65, you’re sure to have success on the water! Another new bait we’re excited to announce is the XPS All-American Spinnerbait from Bass Pro Shops, that’s guaranteed to change the way you hit the water with a spinnerbait in hand! We’ll also show you an innovative new ball jig from Big Bite Baits, the Pendulate Jighead. This jighead has the ability to swivel, effectively eliminating line twists on the fall, and you won’t want to miss out on adding this jig to your collection! Gamakatsu is another big name in the fishing world that has several new products on the market this year! Some of their newest products include a Feathered Treble in their G-Finesse lineup, and the G-Power Flip and Punch, designed for flipping into heavy cover.

When you think about heading out on the water, no matter the time of year, you always want to be prepared for the forecast. AFTCO dominates the industry when it comes to providing anglers with top of the line outerwear for every season. From their brand new Reaper Technical Hoodie, to the Reaper Windproof Pullover, and the the all new Jason Christie Performance Shirt, AFTCO has you covered for any season you’re hitting the water!

You can have all the great new fishing baits and hooks on the market, but you can’t take any of that out on the water without some seriously durable line that holds up under pressure, and our favorite line to cast has always been Sunline. Some of the new products from Sunline this year include the Sokomaki Backing Line, and the new Maboroshi FC Leader, which is pure leader line featuring a repeating color pattern of green, moss green, gray, natural clear, and reddish brown.

That’s a wrap on our coverage of what’s new in 2022! From electronics and clothing, to baits and weights, to hooks and line and everything in between, industry leaders are continuing their traditions of out-doing themselves and creating better and better products, and you certainly won’t want to miss out on anything we’ll share with you today!
