Sportsman’s Shake, owned by the Dairy Farmer’s of America is a milk based protein shake. Brent and the Joe’s as well as the camera crew drink LOTS of these during the making of the show.

Buy yourself a 12-pack to take with you on the water, or in your deer stand. You’ll love it and you’ll be supporting a great group of American’s the Dairy Farmers of America!

Fulton Performance products are one of those items that you don’t realize you have or need until it’s not there any more, or you try their products on someone else’s boat. Their F2 Trailer Jack and Winch come standard on many of today’s boat trailers, but are an easily upgraded accessory for any boat trailer. They are head and shoulder’s better than the next best trailer jack or winch. Check them out here.
Bass Pro Shops is MECCA for the outdoor enthusiast. They’ve got everything from clothing, to hunting supplies, all the bass fishing gear you can ever need, and everything you ever wanted for boating. Make Bass Pro Shops a part of all your road trips. Check out Bass Pro Shops here.
Today’s bass fisherman rely heavily on electronics. Tournaments are literally won and lost by the use of electronics – in many cases. It would be a terrible decision for me to use any electronics that isn’t the best on the market, and that’s why I use Garmin. Garmin’s CHIRP SideVu, ClearVu, and Panoptix sonar allows me to see more of what I need to in order to make the best fishing decisions on the water. Their high sensitivity GPS mapping is also second to none. Check out Garmin’s Marine products here.
We all love braided fishing line – it’s strong, sensitive, abrasion resistant, and I know I can flip my favorite black and blue jig into anything with confidence. What stinks about braided line is it’s a pain to cut and trim – UNTIL NOW! Brent could not beleive how clean the Pitbull Tackle braided line cutters cut braid. They are so good they will even cut loose, limp braid on the first squeeze everytime. If you fish braided line ever – you need a pair or two of the Pitbull cutters. Get them here.
One product I would never fish without is a pair of Power-Poles. Power-Poles are one of the best inventions in the last 15 years for fisherman. Being able to hold a boat in one spot to bedfish, retie or load passengers on your boat at the dock, Power-Poles are extremely helpful. Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors are one item every boat should have. Check them out here.
We travel all over the country in two trucks, one to pull the boat and the other to pull our 5th wheel RV, to fish the Elite Series and film Pro vs. Joe. Having great tires on our trucks, boat trailer, and 5th wheel is essential. We rely on the durability of Maxxis Trailer tires on all of our vehicles. Check out Maxxis Tires here.
Livingston Lures makes state of the art hard baits with built in sound technology called Electronic Baitfish Sounds. If you aren’t using sound technology you are missing the boat. Check out Livnigston Lures here.
One of my favorite tools we use on the Pro vs. Joe is my Frabill net. We can’t use nets on the Elite Series, but we can on Pro vs. Joe and let me tell you it’s nice not having to lose fish at the side of the boat or pull hooks out of our hands during the filming of Pro vs. Joe. Frabill makes a variety of nets for all types of fish as well as many other great fishing products like bait tanks and ice fishing gear. Find the Frabill gear that fits your fishing style here.
There is one for sure way to catch more fish on any fishing trip – that is to spend more time fishing. For us whether on Pro vs. Joe or while fishing the Elite Series we are always running out of time – and every second matters. By being organized I can quickly find the bait I am looking for and get it out, tied on and back in the water fast. To do this I organize all my tackle using Plano tackle boxes. Plano makes great tackle boxes for every bait type you might have. I know Plano is an unsung hero and big part of mine, and many other professional anglers success because fish don’t bite my Plano tackle box, but rest assured Plano helps all of us put more fish in the boat every trip!
