We had a great day in Mississippi! Proper maintenance is essential for long days on the water. Thankfully, Yamaha Maintenance Matters provides us with every tool available for the longevity of our outboard.

If you are fishing a location with a surplus of bait, your choice of soft plastic must have action and color to stand out. Dan and Sue Dannenmueller landed this slab while one poling on Grenada Lake, MS using Bobby Garland Crappie Baits Baby Shad in BBQ Chicken color.

Sue was all smiles after landing this slab with Team Crappie's Crappie Tamer. The Crappie Tamer has rings around the center of its body which creates more sound underwater to attract crappie.

In the south, predicting the weather is more of a guessing game. More times than not, participating in activities outdoors requires you to be prepared to face all 4 seasons within a single day. Keep yourself dry with Norfin USA's Pro Dry 3 Rain Coat!
