Lazer Trokar- TK-300 & TK-310 Treble Hooks
It is a widely known fact that changing the stock trebles on your hardbaits increases hooking and landing percentages. Now the folks at Lazer Trokar have created the most advanced trebles on the market. Not only are these hooks surgically sharpened to perfection, they are also super strong and feature shorter shanks to enable you to upsize your hooks for even better hook-ups.
2013 is turning out to be a very exciting year for Sonar.

Keep up with Sonar as he travels across the country competing in the Everstart Series, the PAA Series, the 2013 FLW College National Championship as well as other events.

Look around the next time you’re in a lecture; if you see someone with seriously messed-up hair, the kind of shirt Ricky Bobby would be comfortable in and a deep-red sunburn save for the exact outline of a pair of wraparound sunglasses, you just might have identified a new species of varsity athlete: the dedicated college angler.
They’re becoming easier to spot. College fishing, which traces its roots back to the early 1980s and the formation of clubs at Indiana University (IU) and Purdue University, is now a fast-growing club sport on American campuses. Varsity Bass, a leading sports blog devoted to college fishing, lists more than 300 active clubs nationwide with at least one school represented in each of the lower 48 states.
I really try to avoid using clichés as much as possible when I write about my experiences, but you just have to throw one down every once in awhile. One cliché that I hear all the time goes something like this: “Man, this sport can be so humbling sometimes. Just when you think you have things figured out, you go out and bomb.”
That one rang very true for me at the recent Lake Guntersville EverStart, where despite the fact that it is now technically considered my “home lake,” it turned out to be one of the most frustrating and disappointing multi-day tournaments I’ve fished in years.
I finished 88th.
Miles “Sonar” Burghoff has been fishing most of his life with his first tournament at age 12. Sonar grew up in Northern California where he learned to fish for bass. This created a dream for him to pursue his passion. Sonar moved to Florida and attends the University of Central Florida. When he is not hitting the books his is landing monster bass. He explained that one of the main reasons he wanted to go to Florida was to learn how to flip in the heavy cover. Sonar has always wanted to perfect his techniques “It’s like a being a chess piece, you have to make moves to be successful”. Sonar says that he wants to move towards the Midwest after college to perfect his deep diving crank baits. This will help him pursue his career in the open division. Keep an eye out for Miles Burghoff in the Future. >>> read more
