What is the best landing net for offshore fishing?
Until recently, Scott Walker didn't carry a landing net on his boat. Why? Simply no place to put it and most telescoping nets were just not strong enough for the fish he was catching.
The Frabill Power Stow line of nets are the ideal blend of form and function. The Power Stow series of nets offer the strength and toughness to subdue big, surly fish. When not in battle, it conveniently stows ready for the next triumph. These nets are super strong and are easily capable of lifting a 100 pound fish into the boat. Most of the fish that we choose to net are smaller than that so there is no worry about the net standing up to the task.
In this video, Scott goes over several reasons that he likes to carry a net in the boat now that the Power Stow folds in half and a really big net can easily fit in a hatch.

The Mercury Active Trim is a GPS, speed based, automatic engine trim system. This responds to the weather around you responding to the weather conditions around you and fuel economy. Now the engine will set the trim for you so you no longer have to. I know many guys who don’t even use their trim because they don’t want to deal with it. The trim is super important for leveling the boat off and saving on fuel - that is why this invention is so awesome.
The newest edition to the Scales gear family is the Fisherman Board Shorts, made my fisherman for fisherman. One of my favorite features is the padded waste band - when we are fishing all day long with spinning tackle, fighting the fish is just the beginning. Then you have to fight the pain of when it hits you in the hip. Scales built protection right in for that exact situation. There is also a built in plier pocket with polyester so the pliers don’t get jammed up - aside from that they are extremely comfortable. Check them out!
With parties during the holidays, the best appetizer you can do is a smoked fish dip. We love this Smoked Kingfish dip. We will cut it up into large chunks about the size of your hand so that they cook evenly and you smoke them skin down. Personally I like to marinate mine with lots of spice, pepper and teriyaki and brown sugar.

I like to take an average like 20 pound tuna and cut the loin into thirds. Then you have to get all the red meat off of it, which you do anyway to eat it. I like to get them about 4 inches long and about 2 stacks of that will fill a jar. I like them to be about a celery stalk.
