I've got a 2nd Gen Xterra that I've towed a 16' boat, and a shark fishing trailer on the beach with. Towing has been fine, and longevity hasn't seemed to be an issue. I've got 130K on mine and have...

You might want to check out Durabak bedliner. You can get it in any color, and it's UV stable so it won't look gross in a few years. I've used it to paint a few trailers over the years, and it's...

Slow down just a bit, while keeping it chaotic. I've grown to love offshore kayak fishing. Camping for a week while paddling a river through rough country without roads, or cell service does it too...

The Tranx is a little beefier, but the Lexa is a little lighter. I was in the same boat and went with the Lexa for a casting rig. It's caught Jacks, Red Snapper, King Macs, and a lot of other smaller...

My guess is the increased curvature of the hook on your "hook-up" jig heads is causing some deformity of the rigged soft plastic. Even that small bump can make the lure spin when trolled. Spinning...

You are correct. The same size washer from a battle will work. The drag will be a bit smoother, and will be more resistant to fade/stickyness with heat from a long run. I swapped the drag washers on...

I've had them get tackle shy before. They wouldn't touch the usual 400lbs mono rigs, and would only bite live on 80lbs fluoro with at least 6' of line from the weight. For live bait, I like 10-12"...

For me, the increased drag surface area is the only reason to go to the beefier offshore reels, but I still stick to the sub-30 size reels. Currently my favorite is the Makaira 8 that'll handle...
