It’s easy to lose attention to your fishing rods and equipment staged on your pier cart while concentrating on the task at hand (fighting a fish). This is where you are most vulnerable and thieves can just walk on by while helping themselves to your fishing rods or other equipment. Locking up the rods that are currently not used as shown in the video will help prevent them from going missing.

Using a Cooler Bag for your Dakota 54ah battery
I’ve been using this cooler bag since early last year (03/2021) when I first purchased my Dakota 54ah battery and just love it. The cooler bag that I am using is specifically the “All Sport Junior Cooler” by Gemline but any other small soft sided coolers can be used that would fit your specific battery size.
Cownose Ray takes me for a RIDE!
Just another day fishing local waters and armed with just light tackle trolling a four inch paddle tail this catch was definitely a surprise and very unexpected but so much fun!
Slow Trolling For Crappie on my Kayak
I decided to do a little crappie fishing trolling a spider rig setup from my kayak on this last day of the year and reflect on the past as 2019 was finally coming to an end… On that note I want to wish everyone a very safe and happy New Year and may 2020 bring much joy and success to all!.
Getting Swept Away by the Current
There are those fishing days when things just don’t work out as planned – this was one of those days…

All Day Bassin
It turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day to be outdoors to do some fishing. Spent the whole day with my buddy Ron hitting different spots on a few of the lakes in Maitland, Florida. Although I chose to try an assortment of different lures and plastics, the fishes only desire that day was the watermelon red super fluke which is why it is still my number one favorite plastic bait in my tackle box for large mouth bass to date.
PA14 Ama Mod Update : Maiden Voyage
I finally found the time to take out my Hobie PA14 on its first maiden voyage with the new ama upgrade and continue on with the new outboard motor break-in process. Everything went great and had an awesome day out on the water! I got to test out the pvc keel guard as well – thing is solid! Also found that is was a super simple process to put the landing gear down while out on the water with the engine raised prior to heading in to the boat ramp. In conclusion I found nothing to fix or anything that would need changing with this mod in its current configuration.
My Floating Bait Livewell
I put together my version of a floating bait livewell that I can drag behind me with the kayak or use it off a pier, the shoreline or jetties. It’s the size of a five gallon bucket so it should hold a good amount of bait. I like this setup for the main reason that the bait is in its environment with no need to worry about water temp, circulating the water or using a air bubbler to oxygenate the water to try and keep the bait fish alive.
Decided to do a little crappie fishing this morning for my birthday which turned out to be a good decision. Caught enough for tomorrows dinner with the family. Was a great day to be out on the water. 😊👍
