Lingslayer is an exclusive at Hook, Line & Shooter

Lingslayer has proven itself to be the hottest lingcod lure on this planet!LINGSLAYER was developed by Capt. David Bacon aboard his charter boat, WaveWalker. Pacific Coast Sportfishing Magazine ranked it as the #1 lingcod lure. Custom twin tails of various colors add magic.

EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUES: Drop the Lingslayer to the rocks below and lift it up 1 to 2 feet. Jig it up and down twice, lower the rod tip and wait 3 seconds, jig it again twice and repeat the process until a raging "lingasaur" tries to yank you right off the boat!

Cousins - finest rods on this planet!

Capt. David Bacon says, "Once I fished with a Cousins rod, I knew I had the best rod on this plant!"Cousins Rods, made by Wade Cunningham and Bill Buchanan and crew, are simply the best rods made anywhere. Every component selection and every process is guided by one simple philosophy, "What is the absolute best way I can build this rod?" Capt. David Bacon personally uses and recommends Cousins rods, whether you're fishilg ultra-light at high country streams for golden trout, the big saltwater for monster billfish, or anywhere in between.

 When you drop back trolling lures for tuna, dorado or billfish, Tuna Cousins are the hot choice when the stakes are high and you really need a fish. Made to run just under the surface and made with skirt material that feels and looks just right, Cousins trolling  lures come in a wide variety of sizes and colors that run the gamut of dark and drab to pure white and also vibrantly colorful in every fishy pattern a predator might want to chow down on!
