Wowza.... Supposedly this lake has no walleyes. 🤷‍♂️ One of those shallow bowl type of waters that folks write-off as a "bass lake." Welp, they were wrong LOL. Put in the time scanning around with DI and SI before ever wetting a line, and you never know what kind of juicy spot you can find that's not on the map!

HEADS UP!

Obviously you don't need a $375 rod to catch fish! There’s a TON of great options out there at any price point. That’s one reason I make it a point to say the length, action and power of the rods I use for specific things…because then if folks are interested, they can get the right tool for the job at whatever dollar amount they want to spend.

One example is the new "Ceres Collection" which is a GREAT rod at $139 and fishes/feels like it should cost way more:

My battery setup:

I upgraded to Amped Outdoors lithium batteries this year and am LOVING them!!!
https://ampedoutdoors.com/

I went with Amped Outdoors' 36V 100Ah trolling motor lithium battery system (which is two 36V 50Ah LiFePO4 batteries in parallel). I was able to shave off roughly 140 pounds 😳 by running those 2 lithiums vs 3 lead batteries, and of course get some amazing run times:

Which also freed up an extra battery slot in my boat, so I was able to plug in this 100Ah beast (only weighs 24 lbs 8 oz) to exclusively run all of my electronics – fer dayzzzz 🔋 – instead of running them off of my cranking battery:
