What a last 6 months it’s been in this boat! Unbelievable. I hardly have words to describe it, honestly. I was so stoked when this kayak was announced and then we had to wait another 6 months to get our hands on one and now, NOW I have spent the last 6 months in it and I am still as excited as before I could just look at it.
I have used it for all types of things from hardcore tournament fishing, just getting out for exercise, or taking it to the lake to use as a platform to go swimming. I have taken it down the rivers, in the bay and the swamp. There is t an application where the BigRigHDFD doesn’t work.
The STABILITY is out of this world! It’s so stable I stood on the rear hatch and did a back flip off! It’s so stable
New frog design with Injected Core Technology (ICT) allows fantastic fishing on top or sub-surface
Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – LIVETARGET is proud to usher in a new era of frog bait design with its introduction of the Freestyle Frog, a surface commotion soft plastic bait that can also be fished beneath the waterline.

A lot of people look at “pre-fishing” for a tournament very differently. There really isn’t a wrong way to hit the water, and I would always be one of the first to say, if you have a tournament coming up on a body of water you aren’t used to get out there and get used to it. It isn’t smart to go into a new body of water blind. Pre Fishing a body of water can provide an angler with multiple resources to help them out come tournament day. The most important of these is of course, knowledge, but a close second is comfort.
Pre-fishing, done correctly can offer an angler a chance to find their pattern before the day of a tournament, find out what colors are working the best for the larger fish, water temp and clarity are a huge factor in what colors or techniques to
I went back to the ole hidden spillway to try and catch the BIG MAMA BASS that tried to eat my trout last time and the TROUT were STACKED!. What a great little adventure it was!

a belief in one’s self and one’s ability to succeed.
Some days you catch them, some days you don’t. Mental preparation and positive attitude can help you have a better day on the water. Like the Goonies inspired anthem “Never Say Die” by my friends band (The Bastard Suns) portrays…don’t give up!
Confidence, as stated in its definition… “belief in one’s ability to succeed” can definitely play a role on the water. If you think you can catch fish on a certain lure, then most likely you will. By choosing the right lure and presentation to match conditions your are already on the right track. Indecision can throw a wrench in your gears! So…know you have the right bait and know the fish are going to eat it! Try not to over hype or over think things and most of the time the simplest bait could rule

I have a friend who’s a noted author and writer here in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.. Bruce Ingram has written for most of the major outdoor magazines, several of the local “lifestyle” publications and several books over the years, 4 of which are THE go-to fishing and paddling reference guides for all our major rivers in Virginia. When Bruce calls me to come help him out on a project, I’m there. Everyone who knows Bruce, or has been with him on one of his “working’ float trips has a story to tell. I’m lucky in that I have more than a few “Bruce Stories”. Bruce is a great guy, intelligent, articulate and passionate about what he does. But he’s also a little demanding, picky, and just a tad quirky. And that’s why we love him.
Bruce’s latest venture is he’s one of the bloggers on the Virginia Dept. of
In this episode we’re kicking off our time near Petersburg by chasing an Alaskan icon: king (Chinook) salmon. We’ve never fished for this species before, so the challenge level is at an all time high. But with epic views and wildlife encounters, the fish are just a bonus. Luckily, Alaska’s
