I think the folks at YETI have lost their minds. I bet I could find a lot of people who would agree with me. If you feel that spending $70 bucks on a bucket with lid is worth it, then go for it. More power to you. I will tell you what, hit up any restaurant and they will give you buckets with lids for free. If you are really desperate, and I mean really desperate, head on over… ...Read More
I burnt my hands to a crisp in Mexico and when I got back I purchased a pair of Filthy Anglers Fingerless Fishing Gloves. The sun is no joke, but I’m done with sunscreen. I don’t want to have to remember to keep applying sunscreen every few hours. I just don’t care for it on my skin while I’m fishing. Call me paranoid.
What I was looking for… ...Read More
While surfing YouTube for random videos and whatnot, I came across an aluminum boat comparison. While not completely an apples to apples comparison, it was more like Fuji apple vs a Gala apple comparison. This particular video compared a 17-foot Alumacraft vs a 17-foot Bass Tracker.
There are a few things to make note of. Memphis Boat Center is an Alumacraft… ...Read More
I did it, I picked a couple of Boing Lures topwater baits. My sick obsession with fishing topwater baits has me on the search for perfection. Normally I am a topwater popper kind of guy. My go-to lure is a Lobina Rio Rico. This time I was in search of a walk-the-dog style bait, and I came across Boing Lures on the Tackle Warehouse website.

If you love fishing, then you need to add Quabbin Reservoir Fishing to your bucket list. Back in the day, we fished Quabbin from boats that we could rent, fun times for sure. My goal is to get back out there with someone who knows what they are doing, and maybe then I can catch some decent fish. If you decide you want to get out to the Quabbin reservoir, click the link… ...Read More

Things you find surfing the internet. I came across a website called On the Fly Jack Plates. Basically, this is an on the fly manual jack plate that allows for instant adjustments, even while motoring along. Some will whine about safety while motoring, but seriously pay attention and just be careful. These are not cheap, but not outrageous either. I would put… ...Read More
The guys over at Blue Line Fishing did a great little walkthrough & review of the 2020 Bass Tracker Classic XL. Most folks agree that Bass Tracker is synonymous with being a great value, decent quality boat. My cousin had a little Tracker 165 powered by a 25hp 4-stroke. It was just a beast of a little fishing boat that created fun times and memories. I wish he still… ...Read More

I have had a few online chats with Nate, and I can tell you upfront that Nate is not a “computer” guy. His comfort areas are working with his hands, and that is just… ...Read More
