Minn Kota Ultrex Trolling Motor Review

Today we're reviewing the newest trolling motor on the market. If you haven't seen how the Minn Kota Ultrex works, you've got to check this out! We weren't sure what to expect but this motor has changed the game!

We periodically do reviews of new lures, rods, and reels but we've never done a review of boating equipment. This motor is such a big deal we had to share it with you!

Some of the key features that really stand out to us...

-Spot Lock

-Cruise Control

-Remote Operation

Here are a couple accessories that we've used on our trolling motors over the years that we felt were worth the money.

-TH Marine Eliminator Prop Nut (Stops vibration and sound): http://bit.ly/2tjbn9Q

We hope you enjoyed this review of the Ultrex! We periodically do this style of video so let us know if you enjoyed it and we'll continue the reviews. 

How To Win A Tournament | Don't Do What We Did!!

Do you fish tournaments? Ever lose a MONSTER BASS when it counted? We lost a GIANT during this tournament and it cost us the win! We still got 2nd but let's face it, no one remembers 2nd place. 

This tournament was such a mixed bag of emotions. On the one hand we made excellent decisions and adapted to changing conditions, resulting in the biggest bag of the tournament. On the other hand, we lost the fish that would have easily taken the win. Its easy to look back now and see where we could have adapted but in the moment those split second decisions were the difference between winning and losing. 

We hope you guys continue to enjoy these "story videos". If you do, let us know in the comments and we'll continue to include them on a regular basis.

Summer Night Fishing Tricks You Need To Try

Moon phase, lure colors, best times, Matt gives up all the secrets on night fishing so you can catch more bass this Summer! 

Most anglers have heard they should throw a black worm and fish on a full moon. That's great advice but there are so many other tricks you need to try! Here are some quick tips you need to know this Summer...

1) Don't forget the new moon. Sure, the full moon is great, but the new moon can be even better and there are a lot less fisherman on the water!

2) White baits. We've all been taught to focus on black lures at night but do you even know why? Throw that information away and begin experimenting with whites, chartreuses, and even the natural colors like brown and green. You'll be surprised by the results!

3) Use a mix of slow moving baits (jig or worm) with fast moving baits like topwater, chatterbaits, or crankbaits to give the fish a one-two punch that they can't resist. 

4) Braided line. Braid gives you a huge advantage at night. You gain sensitivity and responsiveness at a time where visibility is less of an issue, there really isn't a downside.

Adapting Swimbaits and Crankbaits To Changing Conditions and Giant Smallmouth

We're on an epic school of Smallmouth when the conditions start changing. We were catching them up to 7 lbs but when temperatures began to drop and flows diminished the fish shut down. What do you do now?

Watch how we adapt to the changing conditions by transitioning to heavier weights, deeper diving crankbaits, and a variety of other baits to continue catching the bass in this crazy video!

We had an awesome time catching these big smallmouth but the story is really about how we were able to continue catching fish as the conditions changed radically. Below is a break down of the equipment we were fishing with.
