Cross Country Fishing Trip (22 States) - Update!

We've been on the road for over a month and made it all the way to Alabama! If you've been following along you already know we've stopped at some amazing lakes and caught some beautiful fish! Truth is, we're just getting started and the best is yet to come. We're turning North and there are some huge Largemouth, Smallmouth, and some bonus species ahead!

Our goal for 2019 is to bring TacticalBassin to you. We vowed in January to get on the road and visit as many of you as possible. We haven't taken that goal lightly, fishing in 23 states and 2 countries thus far in 2019. Though we've now arrived home from our cross country trip there are many more videos coming. Keep an eye out for famous fisheries like Lake Chickamauga, Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, and more!

We also promised to give you the top 10 baits from this trip. Some of these lures are from videos you've already seen, others haven't made an appearance yet. In no particular order, these were the most influential baits of our 2019 cross country trip.

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.
