I attended the New England Fishing Expo this past February not expecting to see a Vexus AVX 1880 at the show. My first look at the Vexus AVX 1880 left me mostly impressed, but was it perfect? There has been a big buzz with Vexus as of last year when they introduced a brand new revolutionary aluminum bass boat at the Classic last year. It was touted to be the aluminum boat… ...Read More “First look: Vexus AVX 1880”
Late one night I was online searching for cheap tungsten weights for purchase. I quickly realized that this was not going to be an easy task. What was I looking for? I wanted worm weights, as that’s what I fish 75% of my time on the water. I also mostly fish with my family, which means plenty of lost hooks and weights.

Bass Pro Shops, I hate you. Please stop sending me sales flyers. How can one resist a Bass Pro Shops Pro Qualifier 2 reel for $49? I can’t. In my moment of weakness, I ended up buying the PQE10HA version of the reel. This is the limited-Edition version of the reel. Limited-Edition for half the price? What’s wrong with this picture?

I think I have finally found the perfect worm organizer. I ran across the Flambeau Super Half Satchel Soft Bait Organizer on a quest one night. Quest you ask? Yes, many years of disorganization and frustration of never finding the bait when I needed it, had to come to an end. I was on the hunt for something, but I had no idea what I was looking for. Did I want a tackle… ...Read More “Flambeau Super Half Satchel Soft Bait Organizer Review”
Raymarine is killing it with their Dragonfly series of fishing electronics. The Raymarine Dragonfly 7PRO is the biggest and brightest sonar of the Dragonfly series. The 7PRO is a full featured unit with all the bells and whistles and can be had for $500 or less. I think this unit would be great up front on the boat, or as the main unit for a small tin.

There is no technique I want to learn more than throwing a Jig. This technique is a curse for me and no matter how much time I dedicate to it, I just don’t “get it”. What am I missing? I don’t know. I will tell you what though, I have secured a private lesson with one of the best Jig experts out there and his name is Bill Quattrucci, owner of Bico… ...Read More “Throwing a Jig”
