Cape Gazette SPORTS & OUTDOORS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30 - MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2012 93 onsidering the events of the past few weeks, it's no wonder some fishermen take to the drink. We should be catching good numbers of rockfish and tog, but the windy weather has prevented boats from sailing, while the rough s.eas have dirtied the water to the point that even when anglers can access their fa- vorite locations, the fish don't bite. Then we have days like Monday when stripers were caught in good numbers at the Rips, Indian River Inlet and the 60-foot Slough followed by Tues- day when many boats could not buy a fish in spite of ideal rock- fish weather conditions (clouds, rain and east wind). Please pass the Jack Daniels. The weather forecast for the weekend looks pretty good, so perhaps the rockfish and tog will cooperate in a reliable manner. There will be plenty of boats on the water, and places like the in- let and the rips will be crowded. Please be careful and always wear your PFD. N uas On Tuesday I attended the Fol- som Tackle Show in Atlantic City to check out the new prod- ucts for 2013. Successful tackle companies know nothing sells like something new. Manufactur- ers have people on staffwho come up with new products every year that will keep anglers interested in their product line. The Boomerang Tool Compa- ny seems to have something new every year. This time it is The Snip. This is a small line-cutting tool that may be attached to the angler by use of a split ring and retractable cable. The cutting blades are kept closed until needed by using an ingenious mechanism on the side of the tool. You push in and up to free the blades, and then af- ter cutting the line push down and back to close the tool. Even I can operate The Snip with one hand. I plan to attach mine to the sheath for my fishing pliers, while other anglers will attach theirs to a fishing shirt, vest or belt. I be- lieve fly fishermen will salivate over this product. The only prob- lem they will have is fmding room on their vests. Check out this product online at or at your favorite tackle shop. Tsunami Tackle has three new surf-fishing outfits made specifi- cally for casting artificials. They are part of the Air Wave Elite se- ries and cover lures from 1 to 4.5 Trainer Continued from page 92 issues, perfect form is essential. Tempo training for plateau busting Anyone who's spent enough time in the gym knows the key to success is learning how to keep your body offbalance. Regardless of how hard you work out, your body will eventually get used to what you're doing, and progress will slow down. Learning how to vary your repetitions with tempo training is just one more tool in the shed that you can use to keep your workouts fresh and your body guessing. Tempo training means breaking any lift into 2 -4 different parts and then timing how long you want to spend on each parfi ar part of the move- ment. The following describes two different types of tempo training you can incorporate into your workouts. Give them a try when your workout needs a boost to bust a plateau so you can con- tinue getting results. Two-part tempo training 2-2 Two-part tempo training means breaking the lift into two different parts, the eccentric or lowering of the weight, and the concentric or lifting of the weight. To perform this type of training, simply vary the time you spend on each part. A good example would be doing a squat. To do two-part tempo training with the squat you may decide to spend 2 seconds lowering the weight into the squat position - eccentric movement - and then one second lifting the weight back up - the concentric move- ment. Four-port tempo training 1-2-1-2 Four-part tempo training is ba- sically the same as the two-part tempo training, except you add a pause at each end of the lift, giv- ing it four different parts. A good example of four-part tempo training with the squat would be taking 2 seconds to lower the weight, pausing for one second at the bottom of the movement, taking 2 seconds to lift the weight back to the starting posi- tion and then pausing for anoth- er second before starting anoth- er repetition. Remember, you can vary the times and speeds for tempo training to shock your muscles and challenge your body, but it's just one more way of changing your program when you need something fresh to continue get- ring results. ounces. Matched with the new long-cast reels, these rods will de- liver a lure farther than more conventional sticks. The rods and reels are de- signed for use with braided line. The Fuji K guides have braces that will quickly dispense with braided line and prevent wind knots. Those of us who have tried to cast light lures such as the Red Fin and even the Bomber or Wind Cheater know how big a problem these knots can be. The long-cast reels have two spools. The deeper spool was de- scribed to me by Tsunami man- ager Jerry Gomber as able to hold a mortgage payment's worth of braided lirie. The less-deep spool still holds more line than any fish can run offwith, but not enough to create the need for a bank loan to pay for the fdl-up. All three reels are designed for braided line. They have a bail that will lay the line on the spool cor- rectly and a roller that prevents the line from getting caught on the top of the spool. In our area, most artificial baits are used at Indian River Inlet. The smaller combo would make an ideal jetty stick. If you do toss lures into the high surlY, the larger two will be ideal. Jerry told me he was amazed at how far he could toss a loaded pencil popper with these new rods and reels. Several local tackle shops stock Tsunami KEITH BEEBE, 20, took down this 8-point products. I was attracted to a display of lures in the Okuma booth. Oku- ma does not produce these lures; they are made in Norway and used primarily for pike. Savage Gear produces these eel-like lures that look alive in the box. The largest is a 16-inch, pre- rigged eel that should attract big rockfish. Smaller eels, some with curly tails, would be hot for trout, flounder and school-size rock- fish. Not only do these lures look alive, they come in some of the hottest colors available.

The lures could be cast from the beach or boat as well as trolled. Hopefully, one or two of the local tackle shop owners ] saw at the show will order a se- lection of Savage Gear lures, but for now you will have to go to to see these products.
