An inside look at #ItsRainingGear 2015

#ItsRainingGear (IRG) is back and by now I’m sure you’ve seen a little bit about it, but maybe you’re wondering how it started or what all these prizes are about. So to begin with, IRG originated in 2014 during discussions with the marketing team at Stormr. We wanted to give away some product but they thought it would be really cool if I could bring together some of the great companies that had supported me that year to deliver a MASSIVE giveaway to one lucky winner, and it was packed with some pretty cool stuff. This year we decided to do it again and we got some really incredible support. Eastern Mountain Sports is probably the biggest addition to the group, being one of the largest outdoor retailers in the United States. G2 Gemini, Navionics, Vexilar, and Elite Tungsten are all back again and are joined this year by Lazer Trokar, Wright McGill, Yo-Zuri, Slop Frog Baits, Montauk Tackle Company, and one of-if not THE-premiere smallmouth guide in Upstate NY Bill Lortz of NY Northcountry Bassin. It’s a HUGE package of prizes worth over $2,500 that’ll arrive to one lucky winner before the 2015 Holiday Season. So what’s inside? Continue reading An inside look at #ItsRainingGear 2015

The Science of Barometric Pressure, Part II

The Science of Barometric Pressure, Part II

In an earlier post I introduced the facts of Barometric Pressure (BP) as they relate to fishing, and offered some tips as to how it may relate to behavior and eating habits for bass in North America. Here in part 2 of that piece I’m going to detail how Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass relate to different BPs and their changes at my favorite body of water and frequent stop on the Bassmaster Elite Series and host to the second Bass Pro Shops Northern Open trail for 2015, the legendary Lake Oneida in Syracuse NY.
