Fishing Report

I've got to confess that I've secretly been shopping around for bass boats. There's really only one brand that I would purchase. The problem I'm having is coming to terms with the price of a new bass boat. For the boat that I want, the cost could be upwards of $70,000 after taxes and licensing. As much as I've been trying to justify such an expense I just can't do it. My last bass boat I purchased used for $20,000. At the time that was a lot. Fast forward to today, I ...

Fishing Report

I'm always surprised at how the seasons change. To someone who spends their days outside, I'm sure they've noticed a change in our weather indicating that fall was not too far away. To most of us, we rely on our calendars for this information and think of September as being the beginning of fall. Not me; daylight hours are usually my indicator of seasonal change. The less daylight hours, the cooler the nights become, resulting in cooler water temperatures which alarms the fish to start preparing for the winter months. As far as our local fishing, the ...

Fishing Report

One of my first bait casting reels cost me less than $50 back in the early '80s. As time went on, the price of bait casting reels continued to rise. I'm guessing it was in the early '90s when the prices of a mid- to high-quality bait casting reel had a price tag of $100. Today, a reel of the same quality, sells for $200. Like a lot of you, it's frustrating to have to pay such high prices for decent fishing equipment. Not anymore, there are some really good resources online that can be used to find ...
