Fishing Gear

I’m not a fancy guy, I like spinning rods and live bait. After all bait is what fish eat. Throughout the year I will to expand and improve on my artificial lures. I’ve caught the most bass on plastic worms and think of crank baits as one of the best ways to throw $5-10 in the lake or a tree.

I mostly fish from a boat. We have an Angler Qwest Panfish 818, which is a 18ft pontoon made for fishing. It’s super comfortable for long trips and having some shade in the summer.

  When I get around to it I’ll make sure to add some links and break down all the stuff on the boat down to the rod holders.

  1. Penn Battle II spinning rod and reel
  2. My loverly light weight Pflueger spinning rod and reel
  3. Humminbird Helix 8 Gen3 to know where the fish aren’t
  4. Navionics to help me find the correct depth and sunken houses and roads. Lanier is a deceptively large lake and knowing whats under you really helps.
  5.  1 tackle box full of regular tackle, hooks of all sizes and sinkers we use and the others that always are in there
  6.  1 tackle box full of crank baits, a few spoons, Captain Mac jigs of course, soft swim baits and plastic worms.
  7. My wife has a bunch of old reels from the 1900’s or close to that are round, one is red, one is blue.
  8. Mrs. Only fishing also has a Curado we sometimes use incorrectly to troll an a-rig.
