Fishing with the Jackfish

Featured Pages

Anglers appeared at the launch dressed in layers and state-of-the-art rain and winter wear, many with hand warmer-lined pockets and gloves, heated muscle packs, even small portable propane heaters.


But it’s more than staying comfortable – it’s about keeping your gear working optimally – like reels running smoothly and line guides free of ice – and maintaining an unbreakable mental game.


“You just have to get out there and fish … and consistently get big bass to bite every day,” says Humminbird pro Brandon Palaniuk, who finished second in the frigid 2013 Bassmaster Classic on Oklahoma’s Grand Lake.





               Fall Fishing with the Pros






SpotlightScan™ Sonar delivers a new level of angler-controlled, surround-scan views to provide picture-like images of key fishing areas on your HDS Gen2* or HDS Gen2 Touch fishfinder/chartplotter display.


Similar to the way a scanning spotlight reveals objects in the dark, SpotlightScan™ Sonar clearly pinpoints structure and fish targets ahead and around the boat, so anglers save valuable time on the water and maintain focus on the most productive fishing spots – all without disturbing these areas before you have a chance to fish them.




Ranger Boats custum finish shop


Ranger's overhaul of its online Custom Finish Shop allows new-boat buyers to view even more details when customizing their dream rig and the ability to share their vision of the ultimate fishing platform with their Ranger dealer or friends via social media.

Custom Finish Shop visitors can customize a 2014 model year Z-Comanche Series, Fisherman Series or Reata, selecting the colors from a palette of 30 Polimist and 20 gel coat colors. Users can also configure the boat with Evinrude, Mercury or Yamaha outboards to give the most detailed representation of what their dream rig will look like upon delivery to their Ranger dealer. The 2014 color packages are also prebuilt and included in the redesigned Custom Finish Shop, allowing users to see some of the most popular color configurations of these popular models.

Once a dream rig has been customized, the details of the boat can be saved to a computer, printed, emailed, sent directly to a Ranger dealer; shared with friends on Facebook, followers on Twitter or users of more than 300 other social media platforms.

Further upgrades to the Custom Finish Shop include a larger display than in the previous version, making it even easier to see on computer monitors, smart phones and tablets. In addition to a full-length, profile view of the vessel being customized, three inset detail pictures of the seats, pinstripes and trailer fender are also shown to ensure your dream rig is exactly as you want it.

The latest incarnation of the Ranger Custom Finish Shop is designed to perform on tablets and smart phones as well as desktops and laptops. Thanks to the modern design platform, the Custom Finish Shop can be experienced without the need to download third-party web applications and works for both PC and Mac platforms.
