    Smooth Moves Ultra seats, A Smooth Ride For better Fishing by Cory Yarmuth Fishing the great lakes and even some of your inland lakes in not so ideal conditions can really take a toll on your body.  Most anglers don’t realize the damage that they are doing to their legs and backs by poun [...]

    Bulking Up For Dirty Water Bass. by Chad Peterson - Bulking Up For Dirty Water Bass A lot of people cringe at the thought of fishing a lake with pea soup colored water, I’m talking lakes that swallow secchi disks alive.  I’ve grown to love this particular situation as most of the b [...]
  • How Quickly Things Can Change
    How Quickly Things Can Change by Mitch Bradshaw - Tournament Fishing isn’t for everyone. For some anglers it takes the fun out of the past time or hobby that they love.

  • Downrigger Wiring Basics

  • Giant Alligator Gars!
    I meant "slay" in the informal manner. They definitely CPR'ed!
  • Larson FX series boats?
    I rode in the 2020 I think it was and although it was a very good looking boat and laid out ok I found the ride to be sub par to other glass boats I have rode in. It also seemed more tipsy side to side when walking around and stepping to the edges to net fish etc. It was a quiet ride as you would
  • Fly guides VS Recoils on ice rods
    Like bltbowhunter stated, On an ice rod you will not notice any difference. Yes - recoils are lighter, but on a 28" ice rod with 4 or 5 running guides, you can not tell the difference. "I think that recoils are kind of a gimmick." Gimmick - on ice rods I would agree. They do have a ti [...]

  • New Scentblocker
    I just received an order of new scent blocker and since the bags aren't tightly sealed do I take care of it as I do my older stuff and wash in scent blocker wash and hang it or should I just spray it with scent away and hang it?
  • Potential Wisconsin State Record Typical Buck Shot
    Holy Moly!
  • Posting Land/Handling Trespassers and Neighbors
    [quote=smsmith] I see no reason for the date. If I have posted my property, put my name and address on it...and the signs/my info remain legible...then why on earth do I have to go out and date them every year? Just seems like another way to allow "ethical" trespassing :crazy: "Hey, t [...]
  • SD Pheasant
    Ended with 87 for the 4 days with 12 guys. Lots of corn standing, lots of wind blowing. High temps. We took it easy for our sake as well as the dogs. We were all pleased. Our area(Platte) was down from previous year, due to lack of water. When we found water we found birds.
  • Nd badlands trip
    [quote=PropsterII]And the whitetails aren't bad either and for scenery, hard to beat seeing some Bighorn Sheep occassionally as well, including a couple studs! [/quote] Prop, yer killin' me! :(
