There’s no ‘Duo’ over’s in Bass fishing

Product Review: Duo Realis Duo Shad62 DR and the 3” v-tail Shad The elements of good crank bait revolve around several factors: action, depth control, good hooks and mostly engineering. My review originally was to field test the new Duo Realis Onimasu Swimbait somewhere along the way ….. The request was lost in transition. What […]

Bass are Chompin and the Surf’s Up

What could an event like this have to do with fishing? Well as I found out a lot more than you think. Here’s a list of companies […]

Powell Inferno 705 CB Glass/Composite Casting Rod

Since 2010, most of the rods I’ve been fishing would have been in the $99-range. Some were certainly better than the others. But knowing how much rods actually cost to make, I refused to buy what I would consider to be the “expensive” rods (anything over a hundred bucks). Especially the REALLY expensive ones $300-plus, […]

Phenix M1 Rods – Confidence in Performance

These Rods Perform – Find a Rod that Strikes a Balance  How do you select the right rod? If you read my latest article on the Quantum EnergyPT reels you might have guessed that I would immediately single out any rods under $100 and over $200. If you did you guessed right. Again it’s simply […]

The Quantum Energy PT Reels are Invaluable & Affordable

I was not always a Bass fisherman.  Truth be told I was always in search of the biggest fish swimming in any body of water.  Having grown up in the Midwest, I was mostly on the hunt for musky and northern pike. I used all kinds of reels.  As a kid you just use whatever […]

Cheap Fluorocarbon Comparison: Sunline Super vs. Seagaur Red Label By: Nathan Parker

Cheap Fluorocarbon Comparison: Sunline Super vs. Seagaur Red Label. By: Nathan Parker I was late to get on the fluorocarbon bandwagon. It’s expensive. It looks like mono. I’m cheap. I use braid with a fluoro leader on my spinning rods, and that has been pretty economical for me. But on my baitcasters, I didn’t like […]
