The Bassassins – Marvellous Musky

The Bassassins are back again with another fantastic video. While fishing some of their favourite spots on the Rideau River for bass they hooked into this trophy 47″ musky on a soft plastic! That’s a huge musky on what looks like a medium action spinning rod. Can you imagine the fight?!

The weather has been all over the place this summer and that has been moving the water levels up and down in some of our favorite fishing spots. Today we were finally able to hit our home stretch for some bass and ended up with this HUGE surprise in the shallows of the Rideau. She must have been hungry to hit Basstards soft plastic but we won’t complain. PB for the Bassassins at 47″ and a fish we won’t soon forget.

New Trout Fishing Photo Gallery!

The fishing season is off to a fantastic start this year! Last weekend marked the opening of trout season here in Ontario and though I was only able to get out yesterday, my friends and I still managed to have a fantastic day on the river. We woke up early and took a short drive out to Oshawa where we would explore the upper parts of the river. Tiny beads and stoneflies were the most effective lures in the gin clear water.

XTRATUF Chumrunners – First Impressions

My XTRATUF II boots have been the footwear of choice for winter fishing this year and they’ve been fantastic on every outing. I’m sad that they’ll be put away in the next few weeks as summer approaches, but I’m very happy knowing they’re ready and waiting for next winter. When talking to the folks at XTRATUF I found out they were about to release a new collection of fishing shoes paired with their XTRATUF sole. I asked, though I would have begged, for the chance to review their new shoes and they graciously supplied me with the pair you see below.

XTRATUF Chumrunner

At first glance the Chumrunners might seem boring, but I think the simplicity of their design is what I like the most. They exist somewhere between deck shoes and skate shoes with a feel that is casual and comfortable. The light and flexible soles are non-marking and feature the same chevron pattern that gives XTRATUF boots their grip. I’ll be putting these to the test with some serious urban shore fishing around Toronto and come back with a full review.

XTRATUF‘s new line of fishing shoes are available in three styles (Finatic, Chumrunner, and Sharkbyte) for both men and women.
