After a 3-week absence from fishing, due to hiking events and basement issues, it felt great to hit the shores again for some action. I invited my friend Beau with me since it's always more to fish with friends and he doesn't open water fish too much and thought that S...

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.

The last couple of years, I have been fishing river systems and even though there are days that you can’t seem to figure anything out, there are other days that the fish are on fire. One thing that I have been noticing, is that the speed of the river flowing does make...

I always keep a couple 18 ft telescoping cane poles in my boat. They come in handy like today.

Casting bobbers into shallow crappies can spook them sending them into hiding. Using cane poles, you can slide right up in the heaviest cover, drop the jig into little pockets...

Anticipation was at an all-time high as I recently got my hands on the new Rattlin Sting suspending jerkbait by Salmo.

I had a great initial impression of the bait as I opened one from the package; they come with an amazing finish and are equipped with high quality Must...
