  • Bowfishing Part IV - Where?

    Just like game fish, “rough” fish have favorite haunts and locations where they hang out at certain times. Finding these places is the difference between shooting fish or not. Like we talked about in the “when” segment, these can change due to water temperature or spawning season. The beauty is, what you learn about bowfishing for rough fish also benefits you for catching game fish with traditional gear. Read More

  • Bowfishing Part III - When?

    The time to go bowfishing would be, “Whenever you can!” but there are certainly times when it is more successful (read “fun”) than others. For this piece the when will be broken down into winter, summer, spring and fall. Read More
  • Tie Downs - Securing Your Kayak For Transport

    One of the most important and expensive pieces of equipment to get to the water safely is your kayak. Countless times I’ve seen fellow kayakers improperly load their kayak on top of their vehicles, where it can be either unsafe or damage the kayak. Coming up with a secure system to transport and secure your kayak is something every YakAngler needs to figure out. Read More
  • April in Minnesota

    For fishermen in Minnesota, April can seem like it drags on forever. The agonizingly-slow process of ice-out collides with an increasingly-desperate sense of cabin fever. Even as the smaller, shallower lakes open up, seasons for game fish are still closed. It’s a good time to put on new line, sort your tackle, and do any necessary maintenance - but what do you do with the other twenty nine days? For me, there’s only one option: drive south. Read More

Reactor "Titan" Performance Sport Watch
 
5.0
"My first wristwatch (I think I was six…) was a Mr. Peanut watch that would be a collectable today. Since then, I’ve never been a “big heavy watch” guy, per se. I don’t like changing batteries or winding, and I really do like being able to tell time in the dark. Over the years, finding a quality timepiece that met all my criteria has been a challenge, especially one equally at home when I’m in a jacket and tie, in..."
STM's "Drifter" laptop backpack
 
5.0
"It seems at least a couple times a month I find something else - or more - I want to carry with me to work. My tablet, a packable raincoat, charging cables, the occasional snack... I really needed a pack that would carry all my stuff AND protect the expensive electronics, too. Enter STM's "Drifter". My previous EDC pack was a small ruck I'd picked up from a recruiter friend several years ago. One big pocket, bunch of external..."
Stohlquist "Fisherman" PFD
 
5.0
"I’ve used the Stohlquist Fisherman PFD for over 2 years and have nothing but compliments about it. #1 it is comfortable, if a PFD is not comfortable you will not wear it. The Fisherman has a high back which allows me to sit comfortable in Jackson, Native, Hobie, and Wilderness framed seats. The sides and lower back are vented so you don’t feel like your roasting in an oven when wearing it on a hot summer day...."
