As one of the most well known sunglass companies in the world, Costa Del Mar knows how to show out! With a massive two story booth including a bungalow, it catches your eye and it pulls you in. This year at ICAST, they are launching an “Untangle Our Oceans” collection of eyewear.
The collection is supporting and created with a great cause that helps remove discarded commercial fishing nets off of the coasts of Chili. These fishing nets are recycled down into a raw material in the form of pellets which are then molded into the Untangled Collection frames.
The frames are then fit with mineral glass lenses, avoiding the use of any new plastic materials and providing superior lens clarity and durability. Not to mention, it won the ICAST New Product Showcase “Best Eyewear”!
Daiwa is a big name in fishing products including reels, apparel, and fishing tackle management! They have showed up to ICAST 2018 in a big way with a massive booth. The booth is sharp and clean and draws your eye from across the convention center.
Power-Pole is one of the leaders in shallow water anchors. The Power-Pole booth at ICAST 2018 is certainly one that grabs your attention. With a near 20 foot wall lit up with led lights, it can be seen from most areas of the convention center. With a realistic backdrop, when standing behind the boat, you can almost imagine being on the water. Demo’s are also available at the booth!
With different hunting brands diving their way into the fishing industry, Mossy Oak has really made a splash with their Mossy Oak Elements Agua series! They are also the official pattern of BASS and Major League Fishing! They are also the official sponsor of the Bassmaster High School Series and the Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series. Their booth has a massive double overhang that catches your eye the second you walk into the convention center!
The Bonafide Kayaks booth is certainly eye catching with their kayaks having vibrant and detailed color schemes. With their brand new RS117 taking center stage at the On The Water Event yesterday as well as being featured throughout, the Bonafide crew decked out the booth.
The Simms booth is full of the latest in fishing gear and apparel! With everything from modern wear to waders and fishing packs, this booth sticks out at the top end of the convention center.
Another really cool activity that Simms had going on in their booth was heat pressing different logos of your choice on a trucker hat. They also had beverages and a snack bar for while you waited for your cap to be pressed!
The BOTE stand up paddle boards are sure to catch your eye as you make your way through the convention center. With amazing patterns and colors, these boards grab your attention and draw you in. With so many models, it’s hard to walk away from this booth!
The 13 Fishing booth is surrounded by over 15 foot black walls with various quotes and products pictured. In the middle of their booth is a well lit showcase of their rods, reels, and new bait lineups. It is centered near the middle of the convention center and honestly is nearly impossible to miss as you make your way around the convention center.
13 Fishing also took home the ICAST 2018 Best of Category: Saltwater Hard Lure award with their new Octopi! Here’s video from Tackle Direct of Jose Chavez explaining the Octopi!
The Doomsday Tackle booth was one for the memory banks! With a tackle packed bunker and a tree stand platform, they were ready for anything ICAST brought with it! It’s hard to miss a fishing mannequin that is ten feet off the ground in the convention center!
To round out our top 10, the Googan Baits booth was one to remember! With the Googan squad manning the booth at ICAST all week, this booth was always packed! With the great new bait line up, the packages were flying off of the shelves! These baits are going to change the game!
