Bass Fishing Tip with Biffle HardHead



Rainy summer day on Table Rock Lake and UnderCover Sportsman, Mike Lucas found some afternoon largemouth bass when he switched to his Strike King Rage twin tail Menace hooked up on a Biffle HardHead Jig...

When the fish are feeding on crawdad this bait is a great go-to for any fisherman. It makes good noise and emulates great movement when rock crawling in deep or shallow waters. Mike paints the tails red to flash some color when the HardHead moves.

Trusting Flex on the Farm

2014 Ultimate Heavy-Duty Challenge: What We Hate



If you've read the stories from our 2014 Ultimate Heavy-Duty Challenge (three-quarter-ton gas engines and one-ton dualie turbo-diesels), you know that we spent quite a bit of time with each of the pickup trucks in our head-to-head comparison. In that time we drove each vehicle on many different surfaces, in many different conditions through five different states, so we were able pick out many of the things we liked and many things we didn't like.
