Tackle Review; Victoria’s Tackle X-15 by Kent Cannon NW Outdoor Writer

I received this group from a fishing buddy from down South. Randy Bergquist (who is a fixture in California Kokanee Power) sent me these samples of their new Extreme X-15 Spinners. These are not for the fellow that is tight on cash, (they will retail for $10.00 plus bucks) but if you are looking for some real quality kokanee gear, this would be my first recommendation!

Made with Swarovski Crystals, solid brass blades, plated with real silver, copper or nickel, and premium quality beads in either UV or Super Glow. Not only that but they are made with products produced in the USA, something that you don’t see too often anymore! They are threaded on a light cable with ferrules on either end, and to top it off, they come with easily interchangeable blades (four are provided) in each package. Please note that the blades are finished on both sides as illustrated in the photo below!

It is my understanding that you will be able to purchase them from Shasta Tackle in the near future or you can buy them directly from Randy or his significant other Hoochie Mamma otherwise known as Victoria by contacting them via telephone: 916.833.1722 or email at: fishrd674@gmail.com. Randy will also be at the Portland Sportsman’s Show Kokanee Power of Oregon booth on Friday eve and Saturday morning if you want to touch and feel; the tackle that is…



I get all warm and fuzzy looking at these spinners! They are some serious fishy looking equipment and you better believe that this stuff will put fish in the boat!

Here’s what I want you to do now …

About Kent Cannon

My passion is fishing and hunting as well as traveling throughout the Northwest and writing about those adventures. I was separated from my job a few years ago due to the still ongoing economic downturn. I had spent years working, focusing on things that really were not near and dear to my heart all the while scrambling and climbing to what I perceived as the top. I of course did not realize what I was doing, because I was caught up in the moment, focusing on what I thought was the American dream. Crashing and pushing ever forward like a Lemming headed for a cliff, oblivious the world around me. I was more than a little bitter over loosing my job; it was a good job as far as jobs go and I was making a lot of money so I could live according to the manner in which I wanted to be accustomed. In the process of trying to find another job in an unfavorable economic climate I found something that I had left behind many years ago. I found me! That is how and why I started this website, looking for myself and sharing things that I found along the way. Even though I am older now, suffering a little from arthritis and my hair is now somewhat graying I still have fire in my belly for the next adventure. The more that I seek out my next adventure, the more excited I become!
