    I took my 3 year old grandson out on the regulating reservoir this week. He had fun and we managed to catch a limit of 10 in about 4 hours. Lost at least that many plus a bunch of hit and runs. ...

    I picked up a Garmin Echomap plus 93SV on line for $765. Going from a 5" to a 9" is a big upgrade. I've only been out with it for a couple of hours so I haven't figured out the many features yet. ...

    While not related to the dying on the water issue, I would also replace the water pump impeller if it hasn't been done recently or you aren't sure when it was last done. Kits are relatively...

    If the lakes you typically fish are found on the maps that typically come with the depth finder/gps combos the lowrance is a pretty reasonably priced option. If you want side view and the ability to...

    One thing I've learned through experience is that while fuller flies look better to my eye, the kokes seem to prefer sparser flies. Really sparse. I use hair, rubber leg material, flash a boo,...

    I agree with MtnCat1 - I started with the clamp on and when I upgraded from a scanoe to a crestliner Canadian I found a good deal on an electric cannon on ebay. It's nice because if I need to raise...

    Looks like they are starting to fill the reservoir - should be able to launch in a couple of days. Early fishing usually means dealing with a lot of debris in the water, but I'm itching to get out...

    I have run my mini troll for probably 10 years with a 6lb ball with no signs of cracking or stress. I run ball trolls off it most of the time, so I'm running at max stress with no issues. I run it...

    so I understand, with the $150 model do you drop the probe down on your downrigger, bring it back up and then scan through the display to see the temperature at 5' increments?

    I really like the 7', 2-10 lb test Vance's spiral wrapped rods. They run about $80 and are plenty sporty for kokes while having enough backbone for trout, walleye, wipers, etc.. I have a ambassadeur...

    I've been using braid for probably 10 years with great success. The chamberlain release is one of the primary reasons I switched - I had my mono snap at the loop I had twisted for the release...

    Father's Day Miracle

    It must have been a Father's Day miracle on the regulating reservoir - I went 12 for 12 on fish hooked to landed. I'm not sure I've ever done that before. Even with a balky release and one fish...
