1. I had a great time last night as the guest speaker for the Northern NY Junior Bassmasters at their first meeting of 2018. I spoke about fishing with roughly 50 kids/parents. ...more The future of our sport is bright here in the north country. I was asked some great questions from the junior club members and it was promising to see so many active parents supporting their kid's desire to get on the water. Spring is just around the corner!

    1. Awesome Brad! 👊
  2. Spent the day with the Gajo Baits crew at the warehouse helping work on new colors for the line of baits this year. This has to be my favorite of the day. Summer ...more Craw. Those are going to catch some people some fish.

    1. Looks like they have plenty of green pumpkin:)
  3. New Liquid Mayhem commercial just released from footage from the cooperate shoot I did with them last summer. Check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zp771EsnjZ8

      Chris...I'm glad you asked. I was never scent guy either. Took away my time fishing to apply. Never felt like it stayed on long enough to even make a difference. ...more That's where liquid mayhem joined my fishing life. It's not oil based like most on the market. The benefits of LM is beyond the scent. First of all, it last longer than anything I've ever tried (because it's not oil based...oil and water don't mix).

      Here is where it's different than your normal run of the mill scents. It has a UV component. Most predatory fish actually see UV light different than we do. Think about a black light. It acts as a beacon to your bait in low light, deep water, or murky conditions...and really helps with ice fishing when the sun has to go through a foot of ice first. Yes I do notice a difference with it. Are there days when it doesn't matter? Sure....we all have those days when it doesn't matter what you toss...but when times are tough and you need that extra bonus, I've seen LM outwork the same bait without it, time and time again.

      Do you think the scent played a role honestly? Im not doubting Im just really curious as I never believed in scents and never had much luck with them. I may have ...more also been using them incorrectly who knows.

  5. It was really cold and we packed up a little early when the clouds took our sun away. The temp continued down further below zero but with it came some of the first ...more hardwater fish of the season. The ticket was liquid mayhem on a Rapala jigging rap. (Blue/Silver chrome)

  8. It's starting to get unbearable on the water up here but I'm not giving up yet! Air temp 24 F.Water temps 48 F. Guides kept icing up but did catch a November ...more beauty. Nice 6 lb beast smallmouth. Caught a bunch more decent ones too...which helped since we couldn't feel our fingers.

    1. I had ice in the guides once in a January tournament on the St. Johns in Palatka. 21 degrees. It was worth it. I wound up winning first and big bass.:)

Caught most of them in the shallows on a few ...more flats with a Gajo Baits swimshad (ayu color), one on a Gajo Baits spirit shad dropshotting and a few on a rapala crankbait.
