C-MAP lets you customize inland and coastal mapping

A bass club member I used to know was hilariously secretive about his tournament fishing. As we watched from the headquarters dock, he would circle around the far side of a lake before returning to weigh-in to hide where he’d been fishing.

Serious electronics can be affordable

Unfortunately for our wallets, we can’t avoid some cost increases in electronics. They stem from new features appearing in each product generation that require more computer power and better screens.

We’re talking about boats here, so when we address wire we’re talking about marine-grade wire you can get from your local marine dealer or online at places like West Marine, Boaters World, Cabela’s or Bass Pro Shops.

The next step in trolling motor evolution

My first real bass boat was a new 1973 Raycraft Pro built in St. Augustine, Texas, right between Lake Sam Rayburn and Toledo Bend Reservoir.

Tri-hulls designed with a larger center hull and two smaller side sponsons were cutting-edge for bass boat hulls back then, and every company had its own version.
