Fishing Report

For as many times that I've been fishing, one would think that I've pretty much seen it all when it came to launching a boat. Last weekend I saw something that I still can't believe ever happened. As I backed my trailer into the water to retrieve my boat, I watched as another boat drove right up onto my trailer as if it was his trailer. In disbelief, I walked over to him and said "that's my trailer." He did a double take, apologized, and backed his boat off of my trailer. On the positive side ...

Fishing Report

Recently while out fishing with a friend we talked about fishing equipment and purchasing new equipment. Like most things, as time has passed, improvements have been made and top of the line gear is now twice as expensive as it was ten years ago. I have a few friends that have to have the latest and greatest and honestly I'm not sure how they can afford it. I'm the type that will use something until it's no longer serviceable. In fact, I've got a few reels in my boat right now that are over 20 years ...

Fishing Report

The first year I started tournament fishing I went and purchased what I thought was good rain gear. It worked for a few trips, but wasn't exactly comfortable and started to fail within a year's time. The following year, once again I was in the market for rain gear. I wanted to get it right this time. I ended up asking around and was led to a pair of tops and bottoms that exceeded $500 for the set. I definitely wasn't excited about the price, but wanted to end my search for great rain gear once and ...
