"We didnt make THIS....the Creator left it in trust for us" Learn how and why Wyze Guyz Tackle donates a percentage of all sales to conservation efforts.

When I was guiding for muskies, bass and walleyes up north way back when, Gil Hamm, the founder of Muskies Inc, once said something that has stayed with me for nearly 30 years. He said,   “We didn’t make this…..the Creator left it in trust for us”   No truer words have been spoken for a sportsman and we at Wyze Guyz Tackle take ownership in being responsible stewards of our resource so that generations to come can enjoy this amazing sport of fishing and the overall outdoors experience.   We believe that Lake Okeechobee in its purest form is...

What is the best lure for bass fishing??

What is the hottest fishing lure for bass? What is the best overall lure for bass? What tough questions to answer and ones we certainly receive often! While the world of bass fishing can be a complex puzzle to figure out, there really is no one lure or bait that can do it all. I often use the following analogy when trying to explain that to inquiring folks…..and my wife who certainly believes I don’t need as much fishing tackle as I do.

What is the difference between the WGT Bada Bing! and Bada Boom! soft plastic jerkbaits?

At Wyze Guyz, we love throwing soft plastic jerkbaits. Whether that is for snook, redfish and juvenile tarpon or for bass in thick cover, we absolutely have a passion for it, so that is why we have two different soft plastic jerkbaits in our arsenal. The first is our Bada Bing! which measures in at just under 4 inches in overall length and is what we call a “darting” style jerkbait. If rigged texas-rigged, you will notice that this bait darts in short bursts as you twitch it. This is key when predator fish are feeding on smaller baitfish as...

What makes artificial fishing baits different?

We at Wyze Guyz Tackle have over 30 years of fishing industry experience and one thing we know is that there are endless choices it seems when it comes to tackle. Whether this is hard baits, soft plastics, rods, reels or line to name a few, we as anglers have choices and certainly have our preferences. When we opened WGT, we wanted to take into account those preferences and choices, but also wanted to offer anglers a true value based product line.   When talking about a product’s value, one can easily assess the worth of a product by measuring...

Pledge To Pitch it, preserving our waters through the proper disposal of used baits.

There’s no doubt a lot of politics in fishing. No really, there is. From bans on your tackle to the creation of no-fishing zones, our nation’s pastime is often under threat of being over-regulated, or worse, being completely taken away. With an industry that generates $48 BILLION dollars….yes, $48 BILLION, there is bound to be some red tape. Through policy, science and conservation, the Government Affairs team of the American Sportfishing Association works to minimize access restrictions, promote clean waters and restore fish populations. And while they’re successful dealing one-on-one with our Congressional leaders, we all know it’s the power...
