Looking forward to this year, when the temperatures start to warm a little and the weather settles, the first thing I always think of is my home fishing grounds I'll go back to. Just like last year, they're gonna be fun and they will produce, but even more exciting are the road trips and new adventures that lie ahead. Whether it's the Oregon Rockfish Classic or just a weekend excursion to the coast, the way to stay for a lot of us is to camp....
The first time I saw this little grey box in a store I thought it looked interesting but just couldnít imagine good video coming
from a tiny little camera. And then it didn't have a LCD screen? Deal breaker I thought. That was a few years ago and since
then GoPro has really made some great improvements. I got to meet one of their representatives and when she handed me
the camera I was sure it was going to be a little gimmicky thing that really wouldnít measure up to what we as kayak
fishermen want in a camera. Boy was I wrong!
Kayak trolling can be a real dragÖ. No, not that kind of drag. Rather, the kind of drag that makes you wish you had a rudder and
outdrive. While 6oz of weight and a spinning herring
are manageable, the addition of a flasher or dodger can easily prove to be too much. Enter the KoneZone flasher. With its slow roll and
reduced drag, the KoneZone flasher is perfectly
suited to kayak trolling.
Kayak downrigger fishing just works - it works even better thanks to Scottyís Depthmaster downrigger. Itís is a well-built workhorse that has no problem handling a big weight andis really easy to operate. Iíve spent over 6 months using the Depthmaster putting it through some of the nastiest to some of the best conditions that Puget Sound and various lakes could muster up and after it all thereís no other way Iíd downrigger fish from my kayak.

The Gerber Rivermate safety knife
Reviewed by Zee
After my last safety knife, rusting to oblivion, finally finding it's way to it's final resting place at the bottom of the Pacific it was time to check out a new one. I saw the Gerber Rivermate a few times and was a little intrigued with it's design. It is a little different than it's more popular counterpart, the River Runner, also made by Gerber so thought I'd check it out.
