Tackle Storage And Bass Boat Organization

Spring has arrived and its time to get your boat ready for fishing! We're taking you on board Tim's boat to look at how he organizes his tackle, what tools and accessories he keeps on board, as well as some key tips and tricks to make your life easier on the water!

Boat organization isn't glamorous but its a critical part of every boat. From properly balancing equipment in order to maintain a level boat, to organizing tackle in a way that keeps it secure, yet easy to access, boat layout is an important part of every angler's plan.

Tim gives us a complete walk through of his compartments and explains why each item was chosen. Whether Tim is organizing his hooks in ziplocs or putting a paper funnel in a back compartment, he's thinking ahead and streamlining his equipment.

Below is a breakdown of the gear Tim discussed in the video. The items are in order of appearance to make it simple for you to find what you're searching for.

2019 Shimano Antares 70 Reel Review

The New Antares 70 is Shimano's latest flagship reel. We took it out on Clearlake and put it to the test against some BIG bass! How did it do? Is it worth the money? Let's find out!

The key features of the reel are a smaller, streamlined, Magnesium Hagane body. MGL Spool III for reduced inertia and amazing performance, even with light baits. X-Ship and Micro Module Gearing give the reel that buttery smooth feel and SVS Infinity Braking makes quick adjustments a breeze.

What does all of this mean to you? It means that you're about to pick up the smoothest casting reel you've ever experienced. It will cast light baits with ease but turn around and throw heavy baits a country mile. If you're looking for a top of the line reel that will make fishing even more FUN this is as far as you'll ever need to look!

We have been blessed to purchase a variety of nice equipment over the years and no other reel has had the smoothness and feel of this Antares. In the video we said pre-ordering was available (and it is) but as of this writing there are actually a handful in stock at the link below!

We recognize that a reel of this caliber isn't for every angler. There are anglers with all kinds of needs and budgets. With that in mind here are a handful of our best "bang for the buck" casting reels at a variety of price points.

Spring Kayak Fishing - Best Gear For 2019

Spring has arrived and its time to get the kayaks back out on the water. We need the TacticalBassin Family's help! We're beginners when it comes to kayaks. We've picked out a handful of key items like tackle organizers, rods, and depth finders (linked below) but most of the gear is foreign to us.

What are your favorite kayak accessories and gear choices? Which cart, battery setup, anchor, crate, etc did you find worked the best for you? We're using Old Town Kayak PDL's this year (Predator and Topwater) and are totally open to your suggestions.

Don't worry, we aren't giving up the bass boats. We love our boats but we also enjoy the slower, relaxed pace that kayaks offer to anglers. We're going to mix it up this year and are looking forward to bringing you guys along! Below is a list of the gear we're currently using.

Spring Bass Fishing Gear Review: Vision 110+2, Aldebaran MGL, crankbaits...

Spring is here and its time to talk about new gear! From jerkbaits to reels, to apparel, we've got you covered on a bunch of awesome new items for 2019! This time of year is all about getting dialed in and many of us do that with new tackle. We hope this guide will help you make solid choices as you prepare to head to the lake.

This video starts out with a great new offering from Reaction Innovations. The Shiver Glide is the upsized version of the already popular Shiver Shot. Next comes T-H marine's Eliminator Prop Nut, designed to eliminate vibration in trolling motors. After that we jump into split ring pliers and look no further than the Executive Split Ring Pliers by Texas Tackle. Its amazing the difference a good pair of pliers makes!

We continue to expand from there looking at Aftco's Hydronaut suit and many more items. Everything discussed in the video is broken down and linked below.
