Written by
Part 2 of the ICast 2014 sleeper and sneaker products, if you missed part 1 you can check it out here ICast 2014 sleeper and sneaker products (pt. 1).

Beating the Heat

Written by
Well, for a while the talk down here in the south was about the long winter we had. I still hear people talking about how everything is a month late in the patterns due to the long and intense (for Louisiana) winter we had. But now, it’s summer. And it’s here in full force.

Kayak Angling For Freshwater Gators

Written by
No we don't have Alligators or Crocodiles in the Great Lakes Region. We do have what is known as the fish of a thousand casts. Up until a few years ago you rarely saw Kayak Anglers targeting Muskie.
