07/28/2014 ToW (Tip of the Week) - Check & change. Periodically check the color of your gear lube. If it's milky, have your lower unit inspected for possible water intrusion. If it smells or looks 'burnt,' it's time for a change. Using Yamalube Gearcase Lube in accordance to your owners or service manual is a simple way to help protect your investment. http://bit.ly/1mQoqZK
Jeremy Goldman and team Reellentless caught a record-breaking king mackerel (69.99lbs) at the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo this past weekend.

07/14/2014 ToW (Tip of the Week) - Shocking. You would be surprised how many people purchase, rig and stock a boat, only to run the incorrect battery. Make sure to use the right size and type recommended in your owners or service manual. Also, be sure all battery/cable connections use self-locking nuts (not old-fashioned wing nuts). http://bit.ly/1h3YQ14
May is the top tarpon month in the Florida Keys, which means I’m on the water just about every day. I leave home in the dark and it’s usually dark when I get back home, so by this time of the month I’m running on autopilot.
