Take me back to when the world was what we would call normal. Waking up doing the 9-5 and then to come home and be with our family and friends. How about planning some weekend trips and vacations with not a worry in the world?

With everyone adjusting to our new normal,...

Fishing has been great last few weeks for crappies. Because it’s an evening bite, I’m able to run out to my fish house with the boys after school.

Few pizzas chips, pop and we have a quick dinner while fishing. We usually watch a movie on the tv and jig those suspended...

I’ve hit the ice a few times now down in Bay City and Maiden Rock, WI.  Seems to be a consistent 8 inches of ice.

This is a river so please check for yourself as conditions are always changing. I’ve managed a few nice crappies in 12-14 ft water along with some perch. Us...

I’ve caught some pretty crazy things while fishing, but this one tops them all.

On November 2nd, I was fishing the Mississippi Pool 4, up near the dam.

After setting the hook on another sauger and reeling it in, I noticed something different about this one. It had looked...

Hit the Cannon River system at dawn, it was brisk with a North West wind.

Fishing with a 1/4 and 3/8 oz Roadrunners and jgs tipped with a minnow.

Slowly worked the rock piles looking for walleyes. We did catch few small ones, but we ended up landing on a hot smallmouth b...

Ever drive through Redwing and see that big bluff all by itself? That’s called Barn Bluff and was formed by glaciers carving deep valleys around it.

It used to be mined for limestone from approximately 1878 to 1908. Then in 1910 was donated to city as a public park. It’...

Sure, glad I decided to spend the evening on the lake. Everything from the smell of a campfire smoke creating a blanket of smoke off in the distance to the water looking like glass completely made this trip worth it.

No radio, just the sound of Mother Nature, but we did...

Decided to do something different. Try fishing from shore at the dam in Northfield MN, but first we stopped for breakfast.

Looking for a big carp was our goal, though we didn’t catch a carp we did catch plenty of sheepshead and bullheads. We even managed a smallmouth an...

Mille Lacs is an awesome lake. You can catch quality fish of every species here.

My favorite is catching smallmouth bass. Bed fishing in June is so much fun. Finding rocks and sand in 6-7 ft is key.

On calm days, you can see black rings in the water. Some days you can se...
