"We are always looking for that special edge to give our fishermen and our boat an advantage out there and working with TGT for the past two years has really helped take our game to the next level offshore. From the night bars to the Sword and Shark night bait rigs to the new Delta Bars we cannot say enough of the performance of the TGT product and it's quality under the conditions we put it through. We fish hard core and to the limit and TGT products hang right in there with us." ~ Captain Matt
