Ray had a chance to check out the Jackall Kawashi Mikey (shown in Black Piraruku colorway) swimbait. This lure has smooth moves and catches fish! Definitely impressed with how this swimbait deflects off of cover and triggers that strike! Action footage shot with the Shimano Sport Cam.
Our buddies over at Tools In Action invited ST!ZO to swing by and check out their show. Little did he know that he was going to be the special guest! If you are into tools, you definitely have to peep their reviews. Dan and Eric are just like us… friends talking about their addiction. To see ST!ZOs cameo, fast forward to about 20 minutes in. Thanks again TIA Crew!
Recently JayPee THHF has been getting a lot of love from our hometown of Chicago. DNAinfo.com did a feature on him wanting to hear the whole story behind The Hip Hop Fisherman.
This was followed by a feature segment on the Brandmeier show…
We were fortunate to be mentioned in a recent article in Sports Illustrated featuring some of the fishing industries heavy hitters! It is great to be recognized amongst all of the up and coming brands and it is humbling to know that Ike is down for the movement.
“One of the most exciting things happening now is these hard-core groups of urban anglers with names like the Cast Crew in Chicago or Big Bass Dreams in downtown Los Angeles,” says Mike Iaconelli. “Their fathers didn’t take ’em, their uncles didn’t take ’em, but they saw fishing on TV and online and now they’re casting right off Navy Pier in Chicago. It’s this whole scene spurred by [smartphone and GoPro] cameras, and they post the footage online and that brings more kids to it. At 42, I feel like an old head in this sport.”

CAST CREW members R-Dubya and JayPee THHF have been on a quest to catch HUGE Smallmouth Bass. One of the secrets to catching these picky eaters is to find out what triggers them to react to certain presentations. These two started hand-tying finesse jigs to see what would happen and they are on to something! They call their company TightRope Fishing and their jigs produce… Check out the pics!

Straight out of Osaka, Japan, Style of Beyond (S.O.B.) Anglers Spirit Crew hits us with a new mix to add to your angling playlist. S.O.B. founder, Kazu, and DJ MU KITAMURA teamed up to give us a taste of their hip hop roots. It just goes to show how music can transcend all cultures and interests and unify a community of anglers with one common addiction….
Straight out of Florida lives a CAST CREW family member that we call Prager. His custom baits are unmatched and look so good that you don’t want to throw them in the water! You can find him and his baits on Facebook where he does most of his business. He takes requests, but does his best work “on the fly” where he just freestyles crazy color combinations and patterns to create works of art. Here is a little sneak peek at his work…
e39 blessed us with this face melting, bass dropping dubstep mix for those who cast to the beat of a different drummer. He is no stranger to the mixing game and is well versed in mixing a variety of genres. With over 10 years of deejaying under his belt, e39 makes the most of his equipment by blasting out mixes for the masses.

We got the chance to hang out with the mad scientist and CAST CREW member Travis Crosman in his Kalamazoo, Michigan lab where he creates his unique array of soft plastic baits. StankXbait company is far from your average bait manufacturer. They “strive to make a product that will outlast and outfish other “big name baits”” and they DO catch fish! The proof is in the plastics!
The colorways shown in this video are only a sample of what Travis is cooking up in his secret dungeon. Stay tuned for more…
