Goat Head Sole Spikes

Goat Head Sole Spikes

Last week I wrote about a near death fishing experience and how I almost drowned from slipping on a wet log and falling in to the river. After that experience I knew I needed to get me some more traction on my boot soles. I went in to Fish Tech and my friend Christian hooked me up with a pack of Goat Head Sole Spikes. I have used the cheap studs in the past but they don’t last very long. Also when they wear out you can’t remove them from your soles. I’m pretty stoked on the Goat Heads. They are made of cold-forged, heat-hardened, corrosion resistant stainless steel for maximum durability. I feel they may last as long as my boots. The set came with a magnetic socket and were super easy to install. I fished with them for the first time this weekend and oh what a difference. I would recommend for your safety that you go invest $20 and buy a set. They will keep you on your feet and may prevent some nasty slips. Pick up a set at...
Tip Of The Week! Spot Check Castle Lake

Tip Of The Week! Spot Check Castle Lake

Temps are crazy hot in Utah. So a few of us decided to head to the Uinta National Forest. This place is known for hundreds of lakes full of hungry trout. The trick is to find one all to yourself. I had a good hunch where we could find one. Castle Peak and Lake. We hit this zone a lot in the winter on our snowmobiles and I was excited to see what it looked like without any snow. After an hour of 4X4ing we found the trailhead and camp spot. Good sign with you don’t see any other cars at the end of the road. After about a mile hike we were at the lake. We were stoked to arrive and not see any other people and to see fish rising. We quickly set up our rods and it was on. Sight fishing to fish you see near the shore or rising fish out in the lake. We caught Brooke’s, Cutt’s and Tiger trout. After walking around the whole lake we decided to hike a little further and head up to the peak and check out the view. It was well worth it. The view was spectacular. Nicole and I shared a beer and then decided to head back to camp to grab some food. This was a fun zone and I would recommend you checking it out. But don’t just trust google maps. I think there are a few lakes in the Uintas named Castle Lake. Have fun...

Tip Of The Week. FISH BIRD

I love this t-shirt. Have you ever sat and casted to a rising fish and it couldn’t be bothered even looking at your fly? Did you have the thought that its rising out of the water to flip you off? I sure have! I came across this shirt from Coalatree and had to get my order in. If you want one to you can get them at...

Tip Of The Week: Adventure Beers

Tip Of The Week: Adventure Beers

I’m stoked that Miller/Coors is making these resealable 16 oz beer cans. They work great for fishing and other fun outdoor activities. The advantage is you can open a beer and then close it to get back to casting and stripping. When packing your beer around in your chest or hip pack always make sure to wrap them with koozies. Keeps the frosty brew cold while hiking around and makes for a great treat after reeling in a big one....
Tip Of The Week: Lifeproof Case

Tip Of The Week: Lifeproof Case

Todays tip is more of a product review. But I think it pretty cool and love to using it. The LIFEPROOF iPhone case! I was fishing with my buddy Tad. He pulled out his iPhone to take a photo of a fish and whoops he dropped it in the river. After trying all the tricks to dry it out he ended up having to replace it. I didn’t want to make the same mistake and went looking for a water proof case. Mouse put me on to the LIFEPROOF case. Its pretty bomber. After doing some research on web, watching videos of people taking it snorkeling and filming fish under water I had to get it. I could not be any happier. I take mine fishing with no worries and love to play around and take under water photos. I don’t have any stress about dropping it in or out of the water. If you use your phone to listen to music while fishing or to take photos I would suggest grabbing one of these...
