  • It's Topwater Time

    It’s that time again, the time when top water action heats up! This past week I went out to Calcasieu Lake (Big Lake) and although it was a little slow, I managed to pull out a few specs and redfish. The nice thing about it was, except for one flounder they were all on topwater. I did attempt to throw other things, but the surface action is what they wanted. Read More

DreamWave "Tremor" portable Bluetooth speaker
 
5.0
"I’ve been trying out several different Bluetooth speakers, both for on the water and at the beach or campsite. The small ones are okay - until you turn them up. They either start to distort, or just are not powerful enough to be heard on more open spaces. Then came the DreamWave “Tremor”. The battery-powered Tremor boasts a whopping 50 watts of crisp, clean audio - more than any other portable unit I’ve seen on the market. It can..."

"Between my years in the fire service, law enforcement, USAR, and the great outdoors, I’ve had the opportunity to look at, play with, and use a LOT of different flashlights. Last fall I wanted to replace the light on my duty belt with a high-output LED unit. I’m a Fenix fan, so the PD35 series was an obvious choice. The heart of the PD35TAC is a Cree XP-L (V5), driven by either two CR123 lithium ion batteries or a..."
Hobie "Mirage Outback" 2015

"If you have pedaled or fished out of a pre-2015 Hobie Outback and think you know what they are all about think again. The new 2015s have the same basic lines below the water but the changes above the waterline make this kayak one of my favorite fishing kayaks to use. When you first get into the new Outback you will immediately feel how comfortable the new Vantage seat is. You will wonder how you ever sat on the..."

Slip Discs Make It Better!

The Scotty No. 415 Slip Discs will tune as finely as you can dial it in.

A typical Scotty gear has teeth on both sides. The Slip Discs have teeth only on one side. What this allows you to do is make micrometer like adjustments up and down to find the perfect angle on that rod holder. These can be used with all the other Scotty mounts that have gears in them as well. The only thing you are really giving up is that iron clad security of teeth on both sides. With enough force the Slip Discs will do exactly that, slip. That's what they are made for. With a hand tightened nut on a rod holder or extension, in almost all applications, the 415 will be good to go.

I started kayak fishing with Scotty rod holders almost a decade ago. I fished them more because of the price point difference than because of functionality. There were other rod holders that had better adjustability but they were twice the cost. I knew the Scotty rod holders and extenders were clunky. The angles never seemed what I really wanted and so I eventually stopped using them. With the release of the Offset Gears and the Slip Discs, Scotty is going to get another shot on my kayak. The price point on Scotty products is already hard to beat and with these newest additions, affordability and functionality are both part of the new equation. If you are looking for a way to fine tune your Scotty products and your fishing, this is it,
