With the temps rising, my buddy Matt and I wanted to try someplace different before the ice melted away and I'd seen some pictures of some big perch being caught on a prairie pond a way away from Rapid.

Having the location through a friend, we decided to give it a try....

The ice season is coming to an end for us and with the nice days, was fun getting out, for possibly our last trip, searching for bass. Many fish become more active with the warmer weather, brighter days and, the need to feed for the coming spawn.

Year two of my good friends, Cody Mundy, James Cornell, Steven Sereg along with newcomers Marcus Sereg and Nate Harvey.

We always have heard that the fishing is crazy with an impeding storm front coming, there are some that would argue that isn’t true and others will say yes, it is. As with any opportunity to go fishing, many of us take advantage of the time that we are given on a given...

With my friends Chad and Kelly in town this past weekend, they'd expressed a desire to go after Lake Trout on Pactola since they'd never caught one before. As I hadn't gone after them this season yet and hadn't caught one myself in a couple of years, I agreed to try to...
