Fall in the north eastern United States means the river smallmouth put on the feedbag preparing for the long winter when food will be scarce. Appeal to the smallmouths “need to feed” by sputtering spinnerbaits!
After reading this blog post over at SaltyShores.com, I decided it was time to throw down some cash and purchase a better video editing program. Until now, all of my videos have been pieced together using Windows Movie Maker (yikes!) or a comparable program…
I've done some reading up on this "new" Alabama Rig and it seems to be a really deadly lure with a fair amount of applications (and controversy). But all this is just reading and I haven't yet tried it for myself. Do any of you guys have first hand experience with the Alabama rig that you could share? Thoughts? Comments?

Great early review of the all-new 2012 Wilderness Systems Ride 135 by Palmetto Kayak Fishing.
The seating system coupled with the floor layout is genius. In other kayaks I have owned, I run into a common problem - there never seems to be enough leg room for me from the seat to the foot pegs. I have historically had to modify the design of the foot pegs to make my legs more comfortable, but the Ride’s configuration worked perfectly right out of the…

Jeff Little, Roy (kayakbassfishing.com), and I decided to hit the water for some early winter smallmouth fishing on the Susquehanna River. We converged on the Susqehanna at about 7 a.m. prepared to fish a known wintering area that both jeff and… Continue

It was a great day of fishing with enough action to keep me warm even with the air temps dipping into the low 40's. The highlight of the trip was a 20" fat fall bronze back. Despite the cold water, the fish made several leaps and even cleared the water once before I could bring the fish to hand. The fish was a fitting exclamation to an action filled late fall trip.
I got out to "No Name" around 4:30pm or so yesterday with the intent of tying to find a few of the bigger green guys than my last trip out there. Got everything all set up and set out onto the water... within the first three casts I had two strikes at the Heddon Super Spook Jr. in the "Florida Bass" color. neither one resulted in fish... I wasn’t sure if… Continue

We often taught stealth as the primary advantage of the kayak. Here is my modification to take it to the next level.
I found this product from Stewart Products Sure Step and it immediately got my attention as a way to make the kayak more "quiet". We often talk about the stealth of kayaks as a major advantage but overlook how load they…

A great weekend for everything fishing, we wrapped up at the Bassmaster Expo late Sunday and headed home. It seemed there were even more people packing the venue Sunday than Saturday, eagerly waiting a glimpse or even an autograph of their favorite pro angler.
At the Bassmaster Expo, Jeff Little did a quick video on why he chooses the AT FishStix Paddle and the different techniques possible. The FishStix is the most used paddle by the Wilderness Pro Fishing Staff.
