Review: Ketch Products Bass Board with Ketch Kradle

During last week’s Board Battle, looking for the potential best board for use during bass fishing CPR tournaments, we evaluated the Ketch Products Bass Board against some other boards and some criteria that really weren’t the intent of the Ketch board. Now the Ketch board gets its turn under the lights as we review it independently. About the Ketch Products Continue Reading

REVIEW: Kokatat Leviathan PFD

Have you ever wondered what the Cadillac of kayak fishing lifevests is? The Kokatat Leviathan may likely be it. The feature rich PFD has pockets for days, attachment points on nearly every flat surface and includes some subtle touches that many other lifejacket companies just don’t spend the time and money to incorporate. The biggest question though is how did Continue Reading

REVIEW: Spool Speed Fishing Reel Bearings

For the better part of five years, I’ve tinkered with my fishing reels trying to get a little more performance, a little more distance, a little more longevity out of them. Reel upgrades started for me out of necessity. If I could take an $80 reel and make it perform like a $200 reel for $40 or less, it was Continue Reading

A couple of months ago as I was discarding another delaminated fishing shirt I came across Salty Scales. They have Continue Reading

REVIEW: 13 Fishing Concept Z Baitcasting Reel

I first saw the Concept Z in person at a local tackle shop, Tightlines PFT in Killeen, last week. Having a review for the 13 Fishing Inception in the works I picked it up, gave the spool a spin, scoffed, and put it back down. I think the words I used immediately were, “That sucks. How are they going to Continue Reading

REVIEW: 13 Fishing Inception Baitcasting Reel

13 Fishing has been cranking out new rods and reels over the last couple of years of which I have reviewed quite a few. Walking through my local tackle shop a couple of weeks ago I picked up a 13 Fishing Inception reel and gave it a spin. The spool seemed to spin well, the drag seemed strong, and the Continue Reading

REVIEW: Napier Sportz Truck Tent

If you’ve ever fished tournaments, taken a long trip to go fish, or just wanted to save some dollars on lodging, you’ve probably thought about tent camping. One of my least favorite things about tent camping is being on the ground, and no large, flat surfaces to put the tent. Paying for spaces can be a little better but rarely. I’ve Continue Reading
