    Hope this post find you guys well! I have been exploring affordable frogs over seas and found that over seas, not only they have affordable ones, but ones that are designed super durable, cast super far and have a new unique action. I use these primarily for snakeheads, but bass and bowfins and...

    Post Spawn is here for some shallow lakes of NJ. Some topwater action been doing okay like buzz bait and whopper plopper but nothing large and consistent. With that said, I whipped out the Jika Rig, home made style, and used the Zman Razor Shadz. I wish i have used this during the spawn as the...

    I never really thrown a chatterbait, but seeing people do it, I told myself I had to give it a shot this season. Went out 2nd week of April to search for some prespawn bass. Air temp was 50 degrees forecasted to go up to 53, so water must be at least in high 40s, if not 50 since it was right...

    Saturday the wind was HOWLING and the bay was far from calm. We got to the Somers Point ramp just before the afternoon high tide. I had second thoughts about heading out in the tiny 16.5 Wellcraft , but some nice guy at the ramp handed me a bucket of live green crabs, so I decided to set sail...

    Summer fishing can be tough and unpredictable, just like the weather. That's why one must know many "text book" proven theories so that you can switch it up when necessary. In my latest trip, I headed out to fish a local pond before a storm. Per "Text book" when barometric pressure is falling...

    It was free fishing day in Maryland (first two saturdays in June, I picked the first) and I have decided to rent a jon boat w/ my brother to fish this awesome body of water. It was post spawn and thus the bass wasn't really biting. No need to fear, the pickerels were there... to rip and tear...

    Hey Guys went to Iona Lake to try to fish a local lake, but it was extremely tough! I thought that because there are so many lilies that i could go and do top water all day for some bites but man i was wrong! Maybe bass are doing their post spawn and are lazy? The best I could get were some...

    Hello Everyone. I wanted to share that this past Sat. I finally caught my first fish in 25 years. I was fishing out at Marsh Creek, west side, from the shore and I ended up catching a small LM (guessing it was about 8 in. long and had a bit of girth). It was fantastic to finally have something...

    And I got the skunkola! But it was all my fault... call it rookie mistakes. After some suggestions from a friend I got a baitcaster combo at an incredible price, an ABU Silver Max with a Berkely Lightning Rod for $19.99 after $20 rebate!!! I was at a local lake where i've caught plenty of...
