Okuma-Titus Gold Series

Press Release

Okuma designed the Titus Gold for those anglers in search of the strongest, fastest fish in the ocean. Powerful fish such as tuna, and speedsters like wahoo were the primary targets for designing the Titus Gold. The side plates and one-piece frame of the Titus Gold are machined from T6-6061 aluminum. This offers precision alignment of the forged aluminum spool for the smoothest free spooling around.

The castability of the Titus Gold is further enhanced by five stainless steel ball bearings. The internal strength of the Titus Gold originates from the stainless steel main gear and pinion gear. Both of these gears were engineered with angled teeth and oversized for the strongest possible gearing available. To compliment the strength of the new Titus gears, Okuma equipped the Titus Gold with the smoothest most powerful, oversized composite and stainless steel, sealed drag washers. The loud clicker is also designed with an all-new stainless steel pawl. The aluminum frame is available in two models--an open face, one-piece frame for fisherman who want to increase their casting distance and a level-wind model featuring a top bar for down rigging and bottom fishing.

Quality workmanship can be seen throughout the Titus Gold. The tension control knob for drag adjustment and the drag lever itself are both forged aluminum. The construction of the handle is stainless steel with a machined aluminum tubular handle knob to match the reel's gold finish. The finish of the Titus Gold is polished anodized aluminum gold and complemented with etched cosmetics. Introducing the Titus graphite lever drag reels

Rivers Edge

Deluxe Action Ladder Stand

Tree Stands

I bought the unit off of Discount Hunting just a few months back. I'm pshyced for this upcoming season although it's not coming fast enough.

This is my first ladder stand and although it won't move as easily as a portable, it's not permanent like a home made job. I can't tell you how many times I've built a permanent stand only wishing I had moved a few feet this way, or that way. The unit it self seems very well constructed and don't let me forget that padded seat if you know what I mean.

Since I've been moving mine quite a bit during scouting missions it gets pretty heavy after a while. I'm drenched in sweat every time I have to move it. So far that's the only thing I don't like about it.

It has some flex to it which scared me at first so I gave it a good workout by doing my best to flex it, but it held strong.

It's a nice little unit at a price that's tough to beat. I may just upgrade in a couple of years to one of those deluxe jobs, but for the time being this is great for me.

My Grandpap got it for my birthday. He didn't tell me where it's bought.

It's my first bow and arrow. It's really powerful and shoots straight. It looks a lot like Rambos.

It's sometimes hard to pull back. Granpap says in time that will go away. It's been 8 days and still hard to pull back. My friend has one he got from his Uncle and his isn't easier and a lot older.


It's really nice I told all the kids at school today about it. Tuesday gramps might come shooting with me. His bow is old.

Fish Finders Hummingbird


Fish Finders

I've put a lot of stuff on my credit card since buying this last year. I am going to take a guess and say they run around $225.

It has nice read out and the directions were easy to read and understand. I love the water temperature read outs as well. You'd be amazed at the difference you can see in several different parts of a lake. Learn where they'll be and when and that's half the equation.

It's middle of the road compared to some of the more expensive models out there. I'd reckon it does it's job well. It's just that I had my eye on another more expensive model with some more features I was looking for.

It'll last a long while, amybe even longer than the old boat I have it hooked to. As with many of the fish finders I would like to see them have a little lower profile to keep taking hits which add up after a while.

A nice unit, not top of the line, not bottom of the line. If truth be told it will do the job just fine. I'd sure would have liked their deluxe model from Hummingbird or another company.

Bass Pro

Tourney Tough

Fishing Line

I paid $2.99 from Bass Pro Shops on line. I wasn't familiar with the line at the time, but decided it was worth the gamble because of who makes it and I can always use it for pond fishing if I didn't like it.

Ties and knots nicely. It's also very easy to handle compared to some lines that make tying together tough. I went with the clear over the green as many of the places I fish are very deep and the clear will reflect well as blue.

Sorry, but nothing to report here.

It's hard to describe the quality of fishing line in that you either like it, or you don't. Tourney tough has passed my test. I was looking for a good quality line that doesn't tangle easily and doesn't break on the first tug and this does just that.

Give it a try.




Basser Kit Lures

Hard Bait

Dunham's Sporting Goods had a sale on for $21.99 for all six of them. That was the beginning of Summer, but I'm sure they'll be on sale throughout the warm months.

Maybe we should ask the Bass what they like about them. There's bound to be something they like in this pack. I usually start with the Black Fury and work my way down the color spectrum from there. Too many of my fellow fishing buddies discount spinners to fast and turn to them as a last resort. For me their the best thing going and the first I turn to.

I wish they offered these a little smaller in size. It's my belief that Bass quite often aren't interested in the larges item on the plate, just something with a good presentation as if it will taste good.

Mepp's are well made and believe me when I say you'll lose them to a snag before this lure gives out on you.

Great lures at a great price. I like how they picked the selection for me using their research rather than me always hunting and digging for different styles and colors. I wish all lure manufacturers offered different assortment packs like this. I'd be a lot richer and if I was catching something I'd be happier to and in the end those two are all that matters.
