What's The Deal With The NEW Whopper Plopper?!

Do you love topwater? Do you love the Whopper Plopper? Check out these crazy blow ups and detailed look at the new 110 Whopper Plopper! River2Sea did an awesome job with this one!

See the Whopper Plopper 110 here: http://bit.ly/2bsPbQV

Try these colors... "Loon", "Monkey Butt", or "Powder". 

This new size has a unique body shape and a reduced hook size. This allows you to effectively fish the bait on slightly lighter tackle without making any adjustments to split rings or hooks.

What's the Craziest Thing You've Ever Hooked While Fishing?? Here's Matt's Story!

Crazy things happen on the lake! We plan to catch fish but sometimes we hook birds, animals, and who knows what else! What's the craziest thing you've ever caught? Here's the story of  Matt's most bizarre experiences!

The Osprey is understandable. The bird is curious and if you've thrown a swimbait for any length of time you've probably had a close call. But what was the beaver thinking? That one is just crazy!

In case you find yourself in this kind of situation there are a few tools that will make it a little easier to free your accidental catch. A net, pliers, and wire cutters are essential to getting the job done cleanly. With smaller animals simply roll them in the net and work through the mesh to free the hooks. This eliminates the danger to humans of being pecked, clawed, etc... and it restricts the animal's movement so it doesn't hurt itself while panicking.

Shimano Curado K Casting Reel Review | First Look Before They Even Hit The Market!

Shimano has an all-new reel releasing in conjunction with ICast! The Curado K replaces the Curado I and its packed with a ton of new features! Larger handle, smaller body, larger spool open, improved braking, and micro module gearing to give it that buttery smooth feel.  Even better, its offered in 6:1 , 7:1 , and 8:1 gear ratios in both right and left hand retrieve!

We've used Shimano Curados for years and this is the best one they've ever produced. This reel blows the previous generations away and for the same great price of $179.99 . We pushed it to the limits with aggressive frog fishing and flippin and were not disappointed! 

The reel is available for pre-sale through Tackle Warehouse with an expected ship date of July 18th, 2017. If this is a reel you're interested in be sure to get it ordered so you're in line when they arrive!

How To Catch Fish On Holiday Weekends

Headed to the lake this weekend? Its going to be crazy!!! Tim and Matt explain exactly what you need to successfully catch fish despite the 4th of July boat traffic. These tips work all Summer long and will save you a lot of headaches on the water. 

The trick to fishing busy weekends and holidays is to use the boats to your advantage. The boats are here to stay and so are the wakes so instead of getting upset, learn to catch fish around them. Mudlines are a Summer bass' favorite hide out and boat traffic just amplifies the pattern. Fish mudlines this holiday weekend and you're sure to catch fish. Happy Independence Day!!

What do we use to catch these fish? Simple, Tim's approach is to downsize and finesse fish to coax the fish into biting while Matt prefers to fish topwater and reaction baits for aggressive fish that are feeding in the mudlines.
