    Catch More Bass This Summer

    Tricking highly pressured bass into biting during the heat of summer can be challenging. At times, you must put down the big loud crankbaits & power presentations and pick up a finesse bait such as a small worm, big shakey head or a drop-shot to entice those picky summer bass.
    Follow along as we take a deep dive into our favorite and top-selling summer finesse baits!  When the fish have all but turned off and you can’t buy a bite, it's time to pick up the Drop Shot.   If you haven't already tried the NED, you're missing out!  Another exciting way to target those lethargic summer bass is a weightless worm. There are a couple popular methods of rigging including the Texas rig, more suitable for fishing around heavy cover and a wacky rig which will shine around docks and shade lines. If you're looking for a more magnum-finesse presentation, look no further. The Shakey Head is a big bass slayer during the summer months.

    Rigging for a Kayak - Seaguar Line

    The growing popularity of fishing has been well documented in the last two years and one of the fastest growing segments, even before the pandemic, was kayak fishing. There are many reasons for the increased interest, including the lower cost versus purchasing a boat and motor as well as the chance to fish smaller waters and access areas that boats cannot get to.

    Two kayak fanatics are the host of The Kayak Fishing Show with Jim Sammons, a show beginning its 13th season on television, and a YouTube personality with nearly 430,000 subscribers, Gene "Flukemaster" Jensen. Both have spent thousands of hours fishing from a kayak and have learned how to stay efficient on the water.
