In today's vlog we are leaving the Skeeter FXR and getting a sneak peak at the new Phenix bass boat with all new Mercury Pro XS motor, Garmin electronics and more. Taking a pause from our smallmouth bass fishing tackle prep, I head up to Fun N Sun to see two of my old boats off.

  • That’s what I love about my Stratos it’s a fairly heavy boat with a deep V and handles the rough water like nothing new I’ve been in and that would be a lot of boats I’ve tested after repairing a customers boat. With the new Merc 250 2 stroke I’ve put on it, can still run the new bullets down and eat em for lunch along with jet skis.

  • If your fishing lake Erie for smallmouth, drop shot rigs are what work for me. Just a 1/0 hook with a weight about 8 inches below. Live craws and live minnows are what I use but flukes work just as well. Drop offs around 15 - 20 feet are were I smallmouth fish

  • Hey LFG, I am a smallmouth fisherman from BC Canada (Vancouver Island). If there is rock, look for craw colors, browns/orangey-brown/dark greens/red. I love laminate colors as well I find it gives me an edge as the depths and sunlight changes, you always have a visible color. Wacky senkos, tubes, dropshots, ned rigs all great choices. If the fish are suspended, smaller jerkbaits, spybaits. I get a few fish yo-yo-ing rattle trap style baits, tandem spinnerbaits are the way to go as you get the flash from the willowleaf and some thump from the colorado. For topwaters, slow down a lot and give them time to find it. I usually cast in, let the rings disipate, then pop the lure, let the rings dissipate, repeat. after a few pops (30 seconds or so passing) I start to move the lure, but its a half speed retrieve. They will hit the lure sitting still a lot of the time. Nothing better than big smallies on topwater. I love prop-baits as well, probably my favorite (rapala skitter-prop, or the old Heddon Torpedo are deadly. pop it the same as a popper as i described above, then slow steady retrieve I never rip them) .

  • I like all your videos. You seem to enjoy life to the max, which I do myself. Bait and tackles are always accumulated over the years, but my buddies and I got our gear and trolling motor stolen last year on a North Dakota memorial weekend trip.That feeling sucks chicken butt. Smallmouth, I love the Oyster color on the B Fish N paddle tail. Tight boat!! All the silver bullets!!!

  • I hope you remembered a MH action rod! I live in Buffalo, NY, and the smallies I've caught so far....unbelievable! Starting out great on Lake Erie, Lake Ontario has a good smallie season too so far. But on Lake Ontario, fish deep and go for lake trout, salmon.....there have been good numbers reported this season. If you want to smallie fish exclusively, try the Niagara River. Put in at Buffalo Small boat Harbor, head downstream to the upper niagara river. Be careful of the USA, and Canadian border....its not straight down the middle of the river, and on the west branch of the upper river it's closer to Grand Island, NY than you would think. A local guide is a good choice, just to avoid any problems with Canada. If that doesn't get your motor running, try the lower river..... You'll get both species of bass, lake trout, choo salmon, it's a smorgasbord of fish! If you're not heading to the eastern Great Lakes, look into it while you're up here..... The fall fishing season can't be beat! Good luck, oh yeah I almost forgot.... The walleye bite is on fast and furious! Have fun up here....good luck!

  • I’m subscribed to many ALworld channels that cover my many interests and passions; everything from hunting & fishing, to personal training/weight training, flint Knapping, rock hounding, gold prospecting/metal detecting, artifact collecting & history.. you name it, and you Justin Rackley, are my all-time favorite ALworld personality! Your channel, your down-home country boy personality, and good, clean, moral, and entertaining content, are all quite simply over the top! I haven’t found anyone that even approaches the enjoyment I find on watching your channel, and the way that you come across or present yourself; you actually make the viewer feel welcome, and it seems as though you’re actually “a close friend/buddy!” Hats off imo, to the absolute best ALworld personality and channel out there! Best wishes, best of health, and prosperity to ya! God bless!!!
