MULL BLOG: The Curious BundeZe

Friday, April 17, 2015

We anglers always have something we need to keep neat in the boat, whether it’s a dock line, a cord for a nighttime fishing light, a two-piece rod, a Dreamweaver Spin Doctor twirling in the wind, a Lurk Diver banging against the diver rod—whatever.

MULL BLOG KVD storage system keeps you organized

Monday, April 13, 2015

Organization is challenging for all anglers, especially the guys who use different artificial lures for gamefish. Seekers of bass, walleye and maybe especially salmon and steelhead have tons of stuff and must decide what to take with them on their boats. Big boat salmon and walleye trollers can take nearly the whole tackle barn, but those of us with smaller boats who pursue those species have to be more selective--and more organized. Here's a system that Kevin VanDam helped Plano develop. It should definitely work for salmon and walleye guys, too. –Dave Mull  Read Full Story

MULL BLOG Davis Happy Troller is Classic Tech

Thursday, April 09, 2015

I remember trolling plates. They've been around at least since I started fishing Lake Michigan back in the late 1970s. They were always the thing that we forgot to raise before trying to get on plane and head in. Really makes you think something is wrong with the motor at first. We've used trolling bags on all the boats we've rigged for big water trolling in the past 20 years or so, but these plates have lots of merit. Here's an up-to-date offering from Davis Instruments. – Dave Mull  Read Full Story
