One of the most welcome—or annoying—things any guest invited for a troll can do is show up with a bunch of his own lures. I know, because I do it all the time. What can I say, I've got lures from different manufacturers who want me to use and review them. I've got other stuff I've heard about from other guys and I want to see if it works. And then there are the lures and rigs I've dreamed up myself and can't wait to see in the water. Most often, I ask permission to bring it and then use it when the captain brings it up. Other times, when I'm fishing with good friends who invite me back even after fishing with me a few times, I just let 'em know I'm bringing it. And then they usually don't let me put it in the water. And if they do, it gets about a 10-minute opportunity to catch a fish before it gets pulled permanently. Read Full Story

MULL BLOG I Want a Ranger Aluminum Deep V
OK,cabin fever is setting in to the point I'm about ready to light a campfire in the family room and throw a hank of freshly poached venison on it. Fortunate for me and the family room (probably the whole house wouldn't fare too well), I don't have any poached deer. So I guess I'll just daydream about boats. Ow! Here's one that I want so bad that it hurts! The new Ranger VS1780, a deep vee, multi--species boat that would look just fabulous with a pair of downriggers and symmetrical rod trees for holding lead-core and copper lines out behind boards. It would also look nice in my driveway! Here's the release: Read Full Story
