Water Sports Takes Stress Away.

                                                            

Wake boarding is a great way to get away from all the stress of everyday life and just let go of some bottled up stress. Most people think that when you go out on the boat, all you can do is fish, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Come check out the variety of wakeboards we sell here at Bass Pro Shops. Any of our trained marine associates will be sure to go out of their way to make sure the bindings fit your feet and ankles perfectly so there is no dis-comfort out on the water. Once you get fitted and you are ready to go just make sure you have one of our durable ropes, which will also be found by the wake boards. All of our wake boards here are high-quality boards sold by only top-sellers, the boards I like most and the one that I own is an Obrien board, Obrien sells anything for watersports, like tubes, skis, and even knee boards.

Having a Great Camera

There are many ways you can enjoy our great outdoors, but having a great camera with you to capture all of the breath-taking memories makes it all the more special. That’s why I purchased the GoPro Hero 3 here at Bass Pro Shops. My GoPro goes wherever I go now, especially when I’m out on the boat with my family and friends! What’s awesome about the GoPro is that even if you throw it in the water or attach it to your wake board as your being pulled, it won’t be damaged; it’s a very reliable and durable camera! On top of how great the camera is, GoPro sells numerous amounts of accessories including a couple different mounts so you can attach your GoPro anywhere! Just by looking at the quality of the camera and the durability of the whole device, convinces me that I can recommend this GoPro to anyone and I will know they will love it. So next time you’re in one of our many Bass Pro Shops stores just be sure to check out the selection of GoPro’s we have in our camping department, and just imagine how many great moments you will be able to capture in 1080p quality. This is probably the camera for you, I know it is for me.

Here are some key points for the GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition:

•          Wearable, mountable camera

•          Capture action of yourself and others during sports

•          Pro quality HD video up to 1080p60

•          10 MP photos, up to 10 frames per second

Motion Sickness Cures

I don’t know what it is about me but I get motion sickness one of two ways, in the very back of a car, or on a boat. Roller coasters do nothing to me, neither do those spinning rides at county fairs (I’m looking at you Gravitron), but get me on a boat and I turn all different shades of green.

Last year I went on my very first cruise and I was given the sage advice to purchase a tube of Dramamine from my local pharmacy. I had no idea what Dramamine was but you better believe that if this pill will prevent me from becoming motion sick that I would scoop it right up. Sure enough when I started to get even the slightest of inclines that my delicious buffet would end up on the deck of the cruise ship, I would chew down on a Dramamine tablet. To my surprise I had no issues whatsoever during my week long Caribbean adventure and this allowed me to enjoy my vacation to its fullest.

Here at Bass Pro Miami we sell 4 different types of Dramamine pills:

  • Original formula
  • Less Drowsy
  • Chewable
  • And just for kids (ages 2-12)

So swing on by the Marine department and come see our selection of motion sickness relief products.

Get Your Day on the Water Off to a Great Start: Marine Batteries

With summer in full swing, fishing enthusiasts everywhere are going to find themselves with more time to pursue what they love. That means more trips into the water and greater chances of catching the big one. This also means more chances on encountering a dead battery when least expected.

Lucky for you Bass Pro Shops carries a wide variety of batteries and accessories to keep your boat running year round. Our XPS batteries come in a few different varieties including starting, deep cycle, dual purpose and AGM batteries.

Starting batteries are used to crank your gas engine and get you moving. We carry group sizes from 24 to 27, basically the bigger the engine, the bigger battery required. Dual purpose batteries combine both aspects of a starting battery and a deep cycle, while not particularly excelling at either. Customers looking for a dual purpose tend to have limitations in regards to space for additional battery placement or low amperage requirements for their engines and electronics.

 

Deep Cycle:Description: battery.jpg

Deep cycle batteries are primarily used for the electronics on your boat including GPS, radios and trolling motors. These also come in different sizes starting in group 24 and up. One thing to keep in mind when buying a trolling motor is when you were to purchase one which has a thrust of 70 or larger you would need 24 volts to power, which equals to two batteries.

AGM:

Description: agm.jpg

AGM batteries differ from traditional acid based ones in that AGM uses compressed glass mats to hold the electrolytes that maintain a charge as opposed to a flooded acid/ distilled water solution. Advantages to AGM celled batteries are they tend to last longer and lose less of their charging capacity over time.

 Once you have selected the proper battery for your boating needs don’t forget that you can pick up all your accessories in the Marine Department as well including chargers, cleaners and storage boxes.

Come on by the Marine Department at your local Bass Pro and speak to one of our informative associates with all you boating needs.

Water Safety for your Child.

Childrens Life Vests

When it comes to your child’s safety, there is little a parent won’t do in order to protect them. The United States Coast Guard requires that every passenger on a boat needs a personal floatation device, but with so many choices which one is right for your child?

Children’s vests come in a lot of different varieties but are pretty much grouped into a few principal types of vests based on weight and flotation design.

 

Infants (0-30 pounds):

 

http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shops-Recreational-Life-Jacket-for-Infants/product/12082505423316/

These USCG Type-II jackets are specifically designed to hold your infants head above the water and prevent roll over during swims. Type II vests are typically ideal for near shore boating, and as always keep a watchful eye on your infant while in the water.

Child (30-50pounds) & Youth (50-90 pounds):

 

http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shops-Life-Jacket-for-Youth/product/10211937/

The main differences between a child’s vests and a youth vest are the recommended user weight. If your child is above 30, but less than 50 pounds grab them a Bass Pro Shops child vest. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, including neoprene. If your child is above 50 but less than 90 pounds a youth size should fit just fine.

Bass Pro Shops children’s vests come in all sorts of colors and patterns, many of which will pair up with your adult vests for a family of matching boaters. All the vests are designed with safety and comfort in mind, so stop on by the Marine department today and any of our associates will be more than happy to help you keep your family boating safely this summer.

Don't let this happen to you!

This is the tragic story about “The Cat”, my father’s ill conceived phase of being a first time boat owner and hopefully a word of caution to the reader.

 Way back around the late 90’s my father bought a small boat off a friend. The boat was a 15 foot Mako with an engine that was a little too big for it’s breeches. My father’s boat was in need of some tender love and care but I was an excited 7th grader, I could see all the potential in that 15 footer and the great times my family and I would have on that boat.

Well, I never got a chance to enjoy South Florida’s open waters on that fateful craft. My father and I spent about 6-8 months fixing just about everything that could be fixed. We would go out to buy all sorts of accessories and telling our friends about how soon we would be hitting the waters and terrorizing the fish.

Then one day my father woke up, and the boat was gone, vanished, fell off the face of the Earth. We filled a police report and we finally found the craft about 6 months later, and it was just a shell of its former glory.  All that time, money and potential, sitting on its side outside of a warehouse in Hialeah, what a gut wrenching experience. Anybody who has had something that was theirs taking from them knows exactly how that heavy ball feels in the pit of your stomach.

Protect your investment. Bass Pro Shops has a way to protect yourself against thieves.

Its called the Spot Trace.

http://www.basspro.com/SPOT-Trace-MotionActivated-Tracking-Device/product/13102607263819/

This little device will update you every 5 minutes with the current location of wherever you hid this little box. Be it your boat, fleet of business vehicles, or your luxury car that you very generously let your teenager drive for a night out with friends.

You will need a subscription for the basic service, with an option to upgrade your service for continuous updates every two & a half minutes.

So stop by the Marine Department here at your local Miami Bass Pro Shops and pick one up to make sure you keep what’s yours, yours.

Rod and Reel Combo for your Car

Have you ever been driving back home from work and looked at a lake or nearby canal and thought man if I only had a fishing rod. Well you can, all you have to do is gear up correctly. A traveling rod would be the first purchase and maybe the only purchase you have to make. Two piece rods are great but if you can get your hands on a three piece rod that would do the trick.

Here at Bass Pro Shops we happen to have a great selection of three piece rods. A 3 piece is more convenient in that it doesn't take up as much room and for those of us who have small cars it becomes a necessary benefit. Now when selecting a three-piece rod my advice is to go with the 7 foot medium heavy.

Down here in South Florida you could find yourself in several situations. In our local lakes you could just be fishing for Largemouth or Peacock Bass but occasionally you could run into a small Tarpon or Snook. In some instances you may even come across Jack Crevalle and if you've ever hooked one of these fish you'll know they're fighters. The 7 foot rod also provides casting distance and since you're fishing from land it’s definitely something you're going to need.

As far as a reel all you would need is what you probably already have at home. Another thing you may
want to consider having on you at all times is a pair of pliers. Pliers are something that are extremely necessary for fishermen but are never there when you need them. Well there you have it with a travel rod in the car ready to fish whenever you need it there is no excuse not to. Your success could be a hook set away.

The Perfect Trolling Motor

If you have spent any time looking for a trolling motor for your boat you know very well how astounding the number of choices are. Between Motorguide, Minn-kota and Prowler trolling motors there are at least 30 different units available from Bass Pro Shops Miami, so which one is right for you?

The most popular units I carry at the Miami store are the Prowler branded trolling motors. Prowler is a Bass Pro Shops’ owned brand that comes in 4 easy to differentiate units that covers a large spectrum of needs for today’s boaters.

Prowler 30/30:          Prowler 55/40:

  

The two motors above are both Transom mounted, 12 volt and freshwater motors with a rugged aluminum shaft and sturdy rubber grip. The 30/30 is the smallest Prowler motor we carry and is ideal for small crafts with only a couple of passengers. If you need a more powerful motor the 55/40 offers a greater amount of thrust with a longer shaft for larger vessels.

Prowler 55/36:           Prowler 55/50B:

These two white Prowlers are similar in design but are suitable for salt-water use. The 55/36 is great transom mounted motor if you’re planning on boating in salt-water or even brackish water. The Prowler 55/50B is the only bow-mounted Prowler Bass Pro Shops offers in addition to being the biggest Prowler available.

 

With all the choices available to you, come on by the Miami Bass Pro Shops Marine department and check out our floor displays with a staff ready to answer your questions.

Can Freshwater Gear Catch Fish in Saltwater?

I am asked all the time can you use fresh water baits in saltwater? The answer is yes; however, only for some. In the world of inshore fishing some of the baits that are typically used for Largemouth Bass can indeed be used for Snook and Redfish.

Let’s start off with the most common and my favorite; swim baits. Most swim baits are meant to resemble certain bait fish and in most instances bait fish in freshwater will have similar characteristics to the ones found around the shorelines of Florida.

Another favorite of mine is the classic jerk bait. These hard baits have been around for years and most of them haven't even changed the design. Being as effective today as they were back then. They are definitely a good choice to use in both freshwater and saltwater.  My only advice with this is that you change out the hooks. Tarpon and bigger Snook have been known to straighten out hooks.

Another good bait to use is flukes. These baits are meant to resemble sick or injured fish in the water; basically an easy meal. When you rig these bait, weed less you can throw them into any thick cover without having to worry about getting hung up.

Almost all baits are meant to be appealing to several species of fish so if you ever have the opportunity to try a freshwater bait in saltwater go right ahead. You never know, your success could be hook set away.

Outdoor Enthusiasts

Hello Outdoor Enthusiasts,

Spring Time is a Great Time for Surf/Jetty Fishing. Did you think Fall was the only time bait runs along the Atlantic Coast- Think Again! Several things happen in Spring:

First, Bait that ran down the coast is now running back up the coast. Mullet and Pilchards, to name a couple are now full of Roe and cruising along Jetties, Surf, and Shore Lines.

Second, late cold spells and strong tides during Full and New Moons send late Shrimp Runs out of the Jetties and Passes.

Add these two runs of bait together and a strong tide, well, look at the Snook and Tarpon in the pictures- enough said! That's only a few Game Fish waiting for you, family, and friends. Stop by the Miami Bass Pro Shop and get your Adventure started with Great Savings and Advice!

PS: The Grouper and Snapper run starts now in May- So Get your gear and go!

Costa Del Mar

Costa Del Mar

History

In 1983, a group of hardcore fishermen who spent their days exploring the globe and battling extreme elements came to realize that the sunglasses they were relying on weren't as hardcore as their adventures. Seeing the world in absolute clarity and protecting their eyes was a must. So when they couldn't find worthy sunglasses, they decide to build their own. And Costa was born. After all these years and all these adventures, our mission has never wavered: to create the clearest sunglasses on the planet for life's great adventures. And the patented technology like those found only in Costa lenses and frames are proof that we're succeeding. We build the clearest sunglasses on the planet for those who live to be on the water. Born on the water and we're still inspired by it. We want to be on it, we want to protect it, and we want to inspire others to do the same.

Choosing your Lenses

  • Patented technology enhances- colors by blocking yellow light
  • Eliminates haze & blur by blocking blue light
  • block yellow light at
580nm for enhanced color and blue light at 400nm to reduce haze and blur.

Why Plastic?

Plastic is more lightweight than glass for added comfort. It's also impact resistant and extremely durable.

400P

  • 100% UV blockage for max protection
  • 100% polarization kills reflected glare & reduces eye strain
  • Provides superior clarity

580P

  • 100% UV blockage

Lowrance Mark-4 HDI & Lowrance Elite-4 HDI

Let me introduce you to two great entry level marine chartplotters/fishfinder we carry here in the Marine department at Bass Pro Shops Miami.

Lowrance Mark-4 HDI:

The Mark-4 HDI is a compact unit that includes a 4.3 inch grayscale display, an internal GPS antenna, Lowrance coastal U.S. mapping and a 83/200 455/800 transom transducer. What all that basically means is that you have everything you need to start boating and fishing in this one package. The unit is small enough to mount on practically all boats and versatile enough with a RAM mount that you could place the Mark-4 on other crafts like kayaks and personal water crafts. In addition the Mark-4 is capable of being updated to other mapping options like a Navionics Gold chart through a mirco-SD slot on the bottom of the unit.

My only gripe with the Mark-4 is that the grayscale display is a bit hard to see under sunny conditions, which brings me to my second recommendation;

Lowrance Elite-4 HDI:

The Elite-4 HDI is, for the most part, very similar to the Mark-4 but with a vibrant color display.  In addition to all the aforementioned features of the Mark-4 the Elite-4 comes in a second variety that includes a better 50/200 455/800 transducer for an additional cost. You get the Lowrance chartplotter, fishfinder and downview structure scan all in one compact unit.

So if you are a novice boater or even an experienced one you really can’t go wrong with these two compact, fully featured and budget priced Lowrance units.

ResQLink

Take a look at the gear you’re taking out for that upcoming trip you’ve been planning for. Go down the checklist, mark your boxes and then check them twice. Now, how do you feel about your safety checkboxes? Pretty good? Not so much? It’s generally a good idea to prepare for anything and everything but then there are those who say expect the unexpected. Surely no one can be that prepared, right?

Well this little handy device won’t stop a snake bite or prevent your boat from capsizing but if you happen to find yourself in a life or death situation, the ResQLink could very well save the day. Being the smallest floating personal locator on the market, you can clip the ResQLink practically anywhere. Boasting the 406MHz signal, you have one of the best links to rescuers while in North America.

Accurate to within 100 meters, or better, rescuers will be alerted to your position in as little as 5 minutes. With 30 hours of battery power once activated your chances of survival will exponentially increase.

And the best part, well besides your whole survival business, ACR will replace an activated device for free. In combination with zero subscription fees and a 5 year limited warranty, you should always make sure to place this little bad boy down on your checklist.

Cabana Islander Inflatable Water Lounger

Here at Bass Pro Miami we want you to get the most out of your summer, and I think I have just the way to do it.

Take a look at this fully inflatable SportStuff Cabana Islander. Anywhere you go in the water this impressive portable cabana will turn heads. Once inflated this cabana features a center swim porthole, a boarding platform and a floating 16-quart cooler. Featuring a removable cabana shade, a heavy gauge PVC lounging area and a speed safety valve, not only are you going to have a great time with friends and family, but will continue to do so for a long time.

A small word of caution, and I can attest to this because I restock it daily, this product is surprisingly heavy. Make sure you also keep in mind that once you are done using the cabana that you get as much water out as possible since those small pockets of water will both impede your progress of rolling the inflatable up in addition to making it that much heavier.

Inside our Marine department you can also find several different ways on inflating your new Cabana (though I do not recommend going the hand pump route unless you want a serious workout).

Type II Life Jackets

                     

 This handy dandy 4-pack of life vests not only saves lives, but saves you the headache of not being U.S. Coast Guard compliant (not to mention saving you cash in tickets).  The Bass Pro Shops Adult 4-pack life vests package comes with four vests that will fit most adults (chest size 30”-52”), in addition to having a convenient carrying case.

Each orange Type II: Near-shore Vest is suitable for calm inland waters where there is a likely chance of a fast rescue. They will turn some unconscious wearers to the face-up position but not all of them. They are bulky, but less so than Type I which are the most buoyant vests Bass Pro Shops carries. These type II vests are rated for a USCG minimum 15.5 pounds of buoyancy. In reality, most adults only require 7-12 pounds of buoyancy.

While you’re stocking up your safety materials for summer, make sure you check for other USCG mandatory items such as visual distress beacons (flares, strobe lights), sound producing devices (air horns) and fire extinguishers. Keep in mind fire extinguishers and flares DO have an expiration date, so check those periodically.

If you have any questions, please stop by the Marine Department in your Miami Bass Pro Shops and speak to an associate.

Calm seas and good fishing,

Ruben Mijares: Marine Team Lead.
