How To Catch Grass Carp

Grass carp tend to get a mixed response from anglers. Some go on specific grass carp trips and others haven’t even given them the time of day. As for BassGrab, grass carp tend to remind us of a redfish they way they tail through the grass during a flood, how they your rod, and how their scales resemble a golden redfish.

How to Catch Redfish

How do you catch redfish? First of all, you need to understand them. Redfish are fundamentally lazy fish that use their sense of smell to eat as much as they possibly can. Combine that with the fact that they are a strong fish that can make excellent runs when hooked and you have one of the top game fish targeted by anglers.

Keeping it Dry – Best Dry Bags for Kayaking

Keeping gear dry is essential for a great day on the water and it is important to choose a reputable brand when you start your search for the best dry bag. The market is flooded with dry bags and what it comes down to is if you need just a splash proof bag or one that can handle going over the falls.

Best Kayak Fishing Anchors

When I first started kayaking I was one of those people that would use anything heavy as a kayak anchor. I brought along old dumbbells, cinder blocks, metal plates, rocks, you name it. It was only over time I realized that an anchor doesn’t have to be heavy to do a good job – in fact the best anchor is going to be light.

Top Travel Fishing Rods

Everyone would pick a one piece rod if they had the choice, but more often that not that just isn’t possible especially when you’re travelling to your fishing destination – thinks airplanes, hikes through the woods, and compact car travel. Here are some of the best travel rods you can get that do a pretty dang good job!

NRS Chinook Life Jacket

NRS has just released a new version of their already wildly popular Chinook vest for fishermen. When I say new what I mean is they released new colors because the vest is the exact same as it was before. This isn’t a bad thing however, since it’s hard to improve on something that is already great.

Best Inshore Spinning Rods

Inshore fishing is hands down one of the most exciting and simple types of fishing, which is why I love it so much. There is a thrill with never knowing what will take your bait – will it be a small pup red or a monster tarpon that will spool you in seconds? For inshore fishing you can cover almost everything with a single rod.
