New fuel efficient motors. I have driven cars that don't get as good of mpg than some of these new boats.p

4-strokes

Fluorocarbon. We always used pink Ande before using fluoro.

Circle Hooks. They work better as far as I'm concerned.

Mirro lure 52M11. Everyone that was catching big trout and snook back in the 60's and 70's had that red head, white body slow sinking lure

DOA shrimp. That root beer and measels colors are the bomb for nearshore fishing. Also, using a rattle float or popping cork... with those baits beneath it.

Lightweight, high drag reels. With braid. No more 4/0-6/0 and broomsticks. Now it is Trinidads and Trevalas for us for 80% of what we fish for.

Bottom scan and side scan depthfinders...although I still use an old school Furuno, cause I know it well...
In Vietnam the Vietnamese would always beg us to throw a grenade in the Saigon river. Sometimes we did it and it brought a lot of small fish to the surface. They would dive in and collect them all then someone would donate their steel helmet for a cooking pot. They would boil them up and make soup. I never tried the soup but they really liked it

That's what "or not" meant. But we don't see too much of that up north. A plus for the south to be sure.

He was right

Now you see your friends posting pics of strange looking fish on facebook. Then you get on youtube and watch videos of people catching them. You read posts on THT about how to catch them. You pay attention to their tactics and try them for yourself. Now any given day there's numerous people riding around in the middle of the day fishing channel markers during summer, lol.

Blue and white makes 'em bite.

To contribute to the thread, I'd gotta say vertical jigs/butterfly style jigs. I have a wreck I fish sometimes that dead bait will not get bit at, even live bait sometimes. But drop that jig down and reel up as fast as you can while jigging and you'll be hooked up in under 3 cranks.
