I can't wait to get on the Elkhorn with them

Jerebro from Bullfrog Baits posted on YakAngler.com that he was looking for some people to test out his new little tubes, and I was game. I fish a similar small tube in the fall and winter, and was eager to give these a shot; Bullfrog is more local, and they offer some colors not available from the other companies. I shot him a PM and discussed the baits, and gave him my address. A couple of days later a cool sample pack showed up in the mailbox, and I couldn't wait to give them a shot. A crappy cold...

This may be more of my personal opinion, as I have not paddled a lot of different fishing kayaks. I started out with an off-the-rack boat from Dick's Sporting Goods that lasted one trip. I had the kayak bug, but definitely needed a better boat. Soon after, I moved up to a Jackson Coosa and really loved the boat!
