Our Top 6 Stories

Here's what was trending last week on the boats blog.

From looking at our traffic reports, it seems you like fishing.

The “best spinning reel” was our best traffic getter last week.

And sailing!

Well, to be truthful, there was only one sailing story in the list: Tim Murphy’s great blog review of the Presto 30.  But I’m still encouraged that you want to hear more about my favorite way to get on the water.

Lenny Rudow will be happy, too. More than half of the posts on the lists were written by him. And three of them are about his favorite pastime, fishing.

Here’s the complete list:

  1. Fishing Friday: The Best Spinning Reel

  2. Top 3 Fishfinders Under $300: Humminbird vs. Lowrance vs. Garmin

  3. The Best Five Sunglasses for Boaters: Costa Del Mar vs. Oakley vs. Ocean Waves vs. Onos vs. WileyX

  4. New Flybridge Models Debut in Miami

  5. Boats We Love: The Presto 30

  6. Fishing Friday: New Lowrance Elite-4 and Mark-4 HDI Fishfinders

We’re always looking to learn why a particular post catches your eye. For instance, Fishing Friday: The Best Conventional Reel Ever? is way down in 29th place. And the photo and information are very similar to our current #1 post. Are spinning reels that much more exciting than conventional reels? Maybe that’s a question for Lenny, but I’m sure you have an opinion. If so, share it with us in the comments below.
