We at Bahia Honda Tarpon Charters have a few select products that we endorse. What that means is that we have a few products that we use day in and day out on our charters. They hold up to the abuse we give them. The companies stand behind their products. Put plain and simple - they work and make our lives easlier. We unequivocally recommend you use these products too.
Made right here in the USA... in Decorah, Iowa to be more precise. These are in fact high end "Super coolers", and Grizzly backs them up with a lifetime guarantee. We use them in our charter boats, in our pick up trucks, in the field, and by our pools. Day in and day out these extreme coolers always impress us as they hold up to the florida sun and extreme beatings they endure. Once you get hem cold, they stay cold! After the first day or two of being iced down, we generally only have to add more ice every other day in out hot 90's days. During more mild weather, something we go 3 days before needing to add ice. Bahia Honda Tarpon Charters and our captains using Grizzly Coolers highly recommend them! Check them out for yourself at http://www.grizzlycoolers.com/
GAMMA FISHING LINES:
Gamma lines are manufactured by Black Knight Industries, a small family owned business located in Oil City, Pennsylvania. I am sure that the big words they use to describe their lines like “Molecular Alteration” and “Nanotechnology” are important to many people. They certainly sound good to us too, but in all seriousness, we just love how the lines hold up and to the abuse we put them through. Abrasion resistance, shock resistance, strength, and flexibility are what is important to us. Weather fighting a 150 tarpon with drags clamped down tight, or pulling a monster Redfish out from the sharp oyster bars, we rely on Gamma fluorocarbon and braid to get the job done for us and our clients every day. Bahia Honda Tarpon Charters and out captains using Gamma fishing lines highly recommend them. Check them out for yourself at http://gammafishing.com/
POWER POLE SHALLOW WATER ANCHORS:
Manufactured by JL Marine Systems in Tampa, FL. We could not be happier with a product and company in whole. Power Pole anchors are as advertise... "Swift, Silent, & Secure". We have had various models on many different boats over the years. It is amazing to think that we actually fished the shallow waters without them back in the day. The customer support at JL Marine Systems is second to none. I once broke a part on my Power Pole and called to order the part. I was pleasantly surprised that it was a warranty item, and they sent the part out over night and I had it in my hands the very next morning. All boats fishing the shallow waters need a Power Pole! We highly recommend you do business with JL Marine Systems. Check them out for yourself at http://www.power-pole.com/
