It's been a week (plus a bit) since the doors closed on ICAST 2014, and we've been working hard to finish up editing and formatting the information we collected for you at the show. Here are the final videos from the show floor, many of which include answering questions our YakAngler family had for the manufacturers.

Bill Bragman from Yak-Gear answers your questions about the new-to-the-US Viking fishing kayak line.


Scotty shows us their new "Coaming Clamp", a no-drill accessory mount for sit-in kayak anglers.


There's nothing better than a water tank demo for lures, and Savage showed us the "3D Manic Crab" that won the ICAST 2014 award for Best Soft Bait, as well as demoing their new size in the "Line Thru Trout" swimbait.


Wilderness Systems presents their newest innovation in "lawn chair style" kayak seating, the "Phase 3 AirProMax".


Paul VanReenan from Unfair Lures gave us a look at several new additions to the hard bait line-up, plus a peek at the custom Mustad hook design soon to be standard on their baits.


Charles "Redfish Chuck" Levi demos additions to the TackleWebs product line for use with coolers and lawn-chair-style kayak seats.


SpoolTek Lures presented their new "Concealed Leader Technology"

We had a great time putting this together, and welcome suggestions on how you'd like to see things like this assembled in the future. Next up will be all the hot news from Outdoor Retailer in early August - stay tuned!
