Fishing Report

Occasionally, I run into a fellow angler who makes me think twice about an overlooked technique or strategy. Anglers in general are often very set in their ways.

While researching some of the newer techniques that are out there, I couldn't help to not be captivated by Frenzy Bait owner and professional bass fisherman Greg Gutierrez. I was introduced to him by a friend recently at a tournament and was beyond impressed ...

Did You Know?

While Super Bowl LI, which was played at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on Feb. 5, 2017, featured a thrilling come-from-behind victory by the New England Patriots over the Atlanta Falcons, the very first Super Bowl, played on Jan. 15, 1967, provided no such intrigue.

Fishing Report

Many say that boat stands for "break out another thousand!" For a lot of boat owners, the new year means it's time for an annual service and the beginning of a new insurance term. One of my favorite comedians once said, "You don't want a boat, you want a friend that has a boat." I think about those words around this time every year. My boat goes in for its annual service this week. I'm crossing my fingers, hoping that there aren't any issues. Like newer car engines, newer outboards are almost impossible for the average ...
