Product 6-Pack
Warmer Weather Ahead Means Maple Syrup, Turkeys, and Open-Water Fishing
By: Jim Servi

Maple Syrup Bags and Holders Starter Kit
Making maple syrup is becoming a popular spring hobby for outdoor lovers across Wisconsin. Whether your operation is big or you are starting small, it doesn’t matter because the syrup tastes delicious! If you are interested in getting started, this kit has what you need. Includes 12 blue sap bags, 12 galvanized sap bag holders, 12 aluminum 7/16” spouts, and one titanium 7/16” tapping bit that can be used with any cordless drill. Enjoy! ($80.95)

Lake X Lures Cannonball Jr
Every musky fisherman I talk to says these lures are extremely difficult to find, but they are worth the search. Since Lake X Lures is working on a new website, I went to blueribbonbait.com and found this message, “due to an extremely limited supply, there is a 2-lure max per customer on all Lake X Lures.” This topwater lure makes a unique, deep popping sound that catches the attention of big fish. Available in 14 varieties. Take advantage when you find them. ($41.99)

Inshore Automatic/Manual Inflatable Life Jacket
Great for outdoor adventures, fishing, boating, and safely exploring that late season ice. This life jacket is designed to automatically inflate when immersed in water, but can be manually inflated as well. Designed for mobility and comfort with wide neckline and lightweight design. Chest size of 30-52 inches. Buoyancy of 25.5 pounds is higher than most life jackets. Reviews say it is lightweight, comfortable, easily adjustable, durable, and has good ventilation. ($109.99)

Fire-Ball Jig
This short-shank gumball jig has been boasted as the “#1 all-time money winning jig on the PWT & FLW Pro Walleye Tours.” With that alone, it might be worth adding to your tackle box as you chase spring walleyes. If you look closely it also has a place to attach a stringer hook to catch those short strike fish. Comes in weights from 1/16 to 1/2-ounce jig head and 12 different color varieties. ($3.29)

TZ TP14 Turkey Pack With Chair
Getting ready for your big turkey hunt, but can’t find room for all your gear? Sick of carrying a chair only to have it bang against trees and brush? Or worse yet, sick of sitting on the ground? This turkey pack will solve all your problems with an abundance of well-placed pockets perfect for all your gear. Two of the pockets are designed to warm your hands as you patiently wait. Best of all, is that this pack has spring loaded legs that transform into a padded, hunting chair. With this pack, you’ll be turkey hunting in style. ($319.99)

T-BONE’S Turkey Magnet call
Gobbling on the edge of your range, it’s the biggest gobbler you’ve ever seen, but you can’t move. He’s watching your every movement and your call is an arm’s length away. You’re stuck. That’s where this call comes in handy. It’s made with magnets so the push button style call sits safely against the non-action side of your shotgun. With a simple reach of your thumb, it creates realistic yelps, clucks, and purrs to bring that gobbler in the last few steps. ($39.99)
