Fishing Report: Bucket Mouth Fishing in Southeast Idaho

Travis had to miss an important store meeting to go fishing. So we thought it was only fair for him to bring back pictures & tell us about it! Here's what he had to say... Chasing the bass in southeast Idaho. From daybreak until just after noon, I caught 30 bucket mouths, give or take... more give than take. They all ranged in size from about 2 pounds to over 5 pounds. I caught a handful on topwaters, and the rest on soft plastics.   Continue reading →

Check It Out: Snap-to-Vent Dryer Connectors

Luckily for you, and for me, Ziggurat Products came up with a solution to our problem. Snap-to-Vent connectors make this job quick and easy! How the Continue reading →

New Boots for Hiking the Bonneville Shoreline

This spring, I went up to the Rainbow Gardens parking lot, and instead of taking Birdsong Trail like usual, my boyfriend and I hiked up to the Bonneville Shoreline trail! It was breathtaking getting to see behind the water pipe that goes over 12th street as it heads up to Ogden Canyon, and we got to meet some fun dogs and watch as people made their way further up the mountains above us. If you’re looking to hike or camp in the Uintas or Northern Continue reading →

Our New Huk Fishing Shirts Help you Fish Longer

That’s pronounced “Hook” Gear. I know, it doesn’t really seem to be spelled that way, but that is how you pronounce it! I promise! Clothing is not usually the top of my checklist when I am getting ready for a fishing trip! In fact, most of the time my wife gives me a funny look and asks, “Are you really going out looking like that?” To which my normal response was something along the lines of “Well, the fish don’t care what I look like!” Continue reading →

All About Jeans: Women’s Jeans Guide

If you’ve ever been shopping for women’s jeans then you understand exactly how frustrating it can be. Either they fit your waist and hips and you feel like you’re going to split the leg seams with every step, or they fit your thighs and hips and gap at the back of the waistband. There is just no winning, or so it would appear. What you need to do is identify what you like and steer clear of things that don’t match up with that. As Continue reading →
