What’s with all the new posts online about fishing with blade baits? I was just given my first one this past Christmas from my mother-in-law. Perfect timing right? Where have I been? To be honest, I always associated fishing blade baits the same as fishing a lipless crankbait. Fishing lipless crankbaits is something I dread, I’m just not a fan of… ...Read More
When it comes to certain fishing techniques, drop shot is one of those techniques that I need serious help with. I watch those MLF guys on tv catching boatloads of smallies, non-stop. Maybe they’re on to something? I scored two drop shot technique-specific boxes from Samatis Baits. The kit includes everything you need to fish the drop shot technique,… ...Read More
What was I thinking buying this Jackall Chop Cut Prop Bait? Talk about catching a sucker, I fell for it. This is the dumbest lure purchase I have ever made. I am never going to throw this bait, ever. The Jackall Chop Cut looks like a lure that would work, but the reality is, it looks like its flimsy made. I don’t see this lure lasting more than a few good fish before… ...Read More
Below is another fishing report from TinBoats member WillWetLine (Mike) on finessing Smallmouth on Quabbin. Every time I read one of his reports, I feel like driving out to Quabbin reservoir to do some fishing. Add it to your bucket list, spend a day, rent a boat, pack a cooler,and bring a trolling motor.

The better half and I went Peacock Bass Fishing in Puerto Rico. We were super satisfied with Captain Paco and his guide service at Peacock Bass and Tarpon Tours. We will call on him again to do a guided Tarpon trip next time we go to Puerto Rico. We were on fish as soon as we got to the prime areas on the water and it was non-stop action all day long. We caught many species… ...Read More

I was on the hunt for a new spinning reel so I asked the members of our trusty forum for a recommendation. The only criteria for me was a set price, and it had to be under $75. I have more expensive reels, but I knew I could get a solid reel for below the $75 price point. After reading the member recommendations and doing a boat load of online research, I settled on the Pflueger… ...Read More
