Bass Fishing For 6 lb Smallmouth | Swimbaits, Crankbaits and 100 Mile Runs!

100 miles through floating debris fields, 44 degree temps, but the Smallmouth were chewing! Tim caught his 7 lber the evening before so no matter what was in front of us we were going to make it back for more!

The smallmouth were sitting on current seams and ledges in 5 to 18 feet of water. We used a combination of swimbaits and crankbaits to trigger the schools into feeding and then the slugfest began! This was one of the most viscious feeding sessions we’ve ever seen with smallmouth bass.

Tips For The Chip Van Insurance

The progress of the food industry, especially the business sector that provides its services through chip vans is on the rise. So, if you are also an owner, we suggest that you make sure that you get the right type of insurance to cover your fish and chip. This will help you stay on the safe side in case of an accident or other tragedies. Given below are some tips that can help you with your chip van insurance.

First of all, if you are going to get your catering business insured for the first time, we suggest that you get several quotes from different van underwriters. How does the process go? As soon as you have filled in your insurance details, they will be sent to a panel of brokers. After carefully reviewing your details, they will send a quote to you. In other words, you will need to fill in an online form to get the quote delivered to you.

Types of Insurance Available

Now, let us take a look at different types of insurance that you can choose from:

Breakdown cover: while this is not essential, you may want to consider it as the downtime can cost you a good deal of money.

Third Party: Actually, this is the minimum as far as the law goes and it covers damage that may occur to the third parties.

Fire and Theft: just like the third party, this cover includes coverage for the damage that may result from fire or theft.

Comprehensive: it will provide coverage for third party theft, fire and any damage to your vehicles.

Tips to Cut Down on your Monthly or yearly Insurance Premium

Add to the Excess

In case you don’t know, the Excess is the amount of money that you can be held liable for if you get involved in an accident. What you need to do is add to this amount. By doing so, you will take additional responsibility and hold yourself accountable for a bigger sum if an accident happens. The majority of brokers will look at it as an indicator of lower risk. As a result, you will get a lower quote. Therefore, increasing the Excess amount is a great idea.

Limit the Miles:

In this scenario, if you don’t travel long distances on a daily basis, you can let your broker know about it and he may lower the insurance premium that you will pay. This is because you may be less likely to have an accident. So, the insurance provider will have a lower chances of receiving a claim. So, this will be a win-win situation for both you and your insurer.


When your van is not in use, you can add more security for keeping you more secure. However, make sure that the added security is approved by the insurance industry of your area prior to the purchase and installation.

So, these are a few tips that may help you with your chip van insurance. If you follow these tips, you may be able to enjoy lower insurance premiums.

Ultra Violet Pond Filter

Having an ultra violet pond filter will give you a much better chance at keeping your pond water clear. When used in conjunction with your regular pond filter, it’s more than likely that you will have nice clear pond water.

The way it works is this. As water in your pond passes through the ultra violet pond filter, the UV light inside of the tube kills the algae. As the algae dies, it begins to clump together. Now your regular pond filter goes into action and traps these dead algae.

Without one of these ultra violet pond filters it will be difficult to keep your water clear, and on sunny warm days you will get algae blooms like you wouldn’t believe, which in turn will make your water pea soup green.

You can get a couple different kinds. They make a submersible kind and an external one. Personally, I think it’s better to have a submersible UV light, just for the simple reason that they’re out of sight. They are durable and should last you for years, although you may have to replace the light bulb after so many hours of use. In a nutshell, you really don’t want to be without an ultra violet pond filter.
