Fishing Report

I've learned over the years that a person could drive themselves crazy worrying about every little detail when it came to fishing. Bass Fishing Hall of Fame member Dee Thomas once said "keep things simple." Taking his advice, I routinely go through my tackle and remove items that haven't been used in a while. I'm often surprised at how much tackle is purchased but never used. Of course, after each passing year, there are new baits that make it into my boat. The usual suspects always seem to remain the same though. There are so many baits ...

Fishing Report

I've been amazed lately on what I've seen in terms of anglers filming themselves while out fishing. I personally have a GoPro which is great, but can be a bit of a hassle sometimes. I also get a little paranoid that it's either going to get lost or stolen since it's small and was pretty expensive. The quality of footage is amazing though. Just when I thought that it couldn't get any better, there are a few anglers that now have drones that they fly above themselves while capturing fishing footage. It's a little ...
