I don’t get out much for musky these days. Before I moved south of where I grew up, I fished musky constantly. On gear. It taught me a ton but I never brought a fish to hand. I’ve had monster fish boat side about to be netted only to bust off. I’ve fallen to my…Read details
Got back last night from a few days of musky fishing in Wisconsin and wanted to throw together a quick run down of some gear we used. All of this gear besides the RIO Pike and Musky line and Pike/Musky leader was gear we own. To start with, the SmithFly boat bag. It holds a…Read details

Thugged Out, MCGZ, Grind Family, CCA, Outside, 1st Battalion, Vizion. When I first heard Soope on In The Grind We Trust over a…Read details
This weekend my friend Josh came to town and my wife and I adopted his dog. We had a nice fire in the backyard. We drank some beer, some homemade stuff, and shot the shit while Fritz found his bearings in a foreign land. The next morning we headed out to some local waters for…Read details
