If you’re planning to go on a fishing trip, you should do it in the proper way. By that I mean out into the wilderness, in remote parts of nature, in places where man rarely sets foot. These are the places where you can truly say you’ve had a great trip. If you have some experience in fishing, you should know that some fishing spots in such areas are filled with trophy size bass.

I’m only saying this because my last fishing trip was one of a kind. We chose to go down to Florida, in the Everglades reservation, as we knew this is one of the best places you should go to if you’re fishing for bass during summer. This is heaven for this fish and for other species as well. To catch the most favorable hours for bass fishing, when we would have more chances at landing some great specimens, we arrived at the fishing spot early in the morning together with our host, a local who organized fishing trips on his boat.

It wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns, but, after being caught by a heavy rain, bass started biting like in no other place I’ve ever been to. This fish were so hungry they literally bit on almost any type of bait we casted. After a couple of hours, we had more fish than in any other fishing location we’ve been to. Maybe I’m making a rapid judgment, since I’m not an experienced fisherman and this was only my sixth or seventh bass fishing adventure, but it wasn’t just me who was surprised, my friends were too. The best moment of the day was when my friend managed to land a trophy size black bass. We stopped from whatever we were doing and watched how my friend reeled in one of the largest specimens we had ever seen. It was a beauty and I almost felt sorry it got caught by my friend’s Shakespeare spincast rod because I placed a bet that my 7 foot long Abu Garcia Ambassadeur reel and rod combo will get the big fish. And it did, up to the moment when he got that awesome catch. But, even so, I had the opportunity to see a majestic bass specimen, the kind you only hear in old fishermen’s stories that you automatically deem as made up to impress people.

Besides that, the Everglades is a stunning corner of America you should visit not only for fishing, but for the amazing vegetation and landscapes. Hope we get back there again this summer, so that I can land my own bass trophy.

Camping is such fun, except for the sleeping experience.I have a pickup SUV.  It is obvious that there is no comfortable bed and sleeping can be a painful experience. However we tend to apply all the measures we can, to achieve the near comfort even in a tent. Regular tents are not very successful in matching up our need of sound and comfortable sleep because they are placed on ground and ground is full of stuffs you don’t like.

This is the reason why truck tents are becoming a popular choice amongst the campers these days. Truck tents are the tents designed to be installed on truck or SUV platforms and provide a homely experience to you while sleeping. They are a good and cheaper alternative for RVs and are best for camping outside the city.

 

Reasons why I am promoting truck tents

Well it is just not me, you can go asking all the experienced campers out there. They will tell you the reason why pickup truck tent is a better option over a regular tent. But since you don’t have that much time and reach, I have listed here a few of them, just for you to weigh up –

  • They are safer. Truck tents are way too safer than regular tents as they are placed on SUV and truck platforms directly instead of the ground, that protects you from crawlers and infectious ground.
  • They are more comfortable. Regular tents do not allow as sound sleep as a truck tent. But truck tent is more advisable which has enough space for an air mattress.
  • They are easy. Truck tent spares you the efforts of searching places for tent installation.
  • They are easily movable. Since they are installed on the vehicle itself, they handle the issues of taking them out and reinstall them again on the next stop. They remain installed on your vehicle and move along with you.
  • They are best for rainy seasons. Imagine sleeping on the ground and sudden soggy feeling in the midnight! Urrgh! Truck tents saves you from such experiences as with them you are almost three to four feet above the ground.

Now is there any reason why you must not own one such useful camping equipment? I know there’s none. So purchase a truck tent right today for an exemplary camping experience! Happy tenting!

 

 

Fish finders are indeed a very handy tool for bay fishing, ice fishing and all kinds of fishing out there. They take your fishing to just another level by allowing you to SEE and MONITOR fishe directly and very conveniently on the display screen by your side of the water. This is the reason why they are best buddies for all fishermen and anglers and are a must buy for all those who still use their guts to locate the right fishing spots.

In case you have just bought one and are beginning to figure out technicalities then you may find the following tips useful And if you have already mastered the foundation course, then here are few additional features and facts that you should know about fish finders:

  • Do look for the GPS feature when you buy a fish finder. GPS system not only helps you return safely but lets you design your own maps. Yes, your own customized digital map!
  • There are two different kinds of sonar scanning systems in fish finders, namely down scan and side scan sonar and you must choose the kind that goes best with your location and requirements.
  • The down scan gives you an idea of what is directly beneath the boat and allows you to see an image of the bottom with clear details. The accuracy it provides is impeccable.
  • The side scan broadcasts signals in a wing-angled fashion to the sides of the boat. These sweep a greater area in a single scan and have very minimal noise and disturbance.
  • There are certain advanced fish finders that combine side scan and down scan together for an even better detection.
  • Just like your Smartphone and computer, the fish finders also come with software enhancements that need to be updated at decent intervals. The more up-to-date version you have, more luxurious fishing you will experience.
  • Fish finders that use arches to signal fishes are more precise than those that use FishId techniques. This is because FishId often misinterprets stones and bushes as fish, which might disappoint you.
  • Fish alarms are another feisty feature that signals you the presence of a fish in case you are too busy to monitor the screen.

 

The above facts about fish finders will help you utilize a fish finder to its fullest. Happy fishing!!
