We had a great week fishing in Florida breaking in our new Bass Cat Boats Jaguar! We love our new Garmin Fish & Hunt electronics setup rigged by Tom Clark at Transducer Shield & Saver on the new TGS mount. We put our Driftmaster Rod Holders Crappie Stalkers to work, too!

Tournament season is gearing up, which means it is time to make sure tackle boxes are stocked. I like to visit my local Bass Pro Shops in Prattville, AL to pick up a few extra Road Runner Lures and Bobby Garland Crappie Baits this time of year.

One of the best long-term investments an angler can make is in a reliable boat. Not only will it get you to deeper water, but it will also allow you to fish places you wouldn’t otherwise be able to from a bank. If you’re near Alabama, check out Airport Marine for your next boat!

A Thundermist Lure Company eyedrop paired with a Bobby Garland bait I picked up at my local Bass Pro Shops was the ticket to reeling in this cold weather crappie!

Throwback to when Sue and I fished a week on Truman! Our Power-Pole Total Boat Control CHARGE works hard to help us pull long days on the water without fear of getting stranded.

‘Tis the season to be freezin’! Sue and I are prepared for fishing in cold weather with our new bibs by Norfin USA. These bibs offer maximum flexibility and comfort while on the water, without sacrificing any warmth.
