One of the most fun fish to catch is the sunfish or bluegill. Their short body size is deceiving for how hard they fight, and those proportions will have this fish as one of the hardest fighting in the freshwater.

My confidence from last week that I'd be able to get a couple more trips onto Stockade for pannies was shaken a bit with another trip there earlier this week, which just went to show me, that even an educated prediction is never a guarantee when it comes to late ic...

As the bigger lakes in the area have begun to open, the temperature has still favored the ice for the time being in the higher elevations. Access to several smaller lakes and a couple of larger ones is still good in our area and temperatures over the next 10 days will...

With a cold spring, delaying the warming of local waters, finally able to get a boat into the water and get the open water season underway. Waters are still only in the 40’s, winds are constantly blowing, but casting a long rod, makes it all worth finally getting start...

Well, old man winter sure doesn’t want to give a break from this cold snap that never seems to want to end. I guess that little Ground Hog might be right about the 6 more weeks of winter this year. But dealing with the freezing weather, doesn’t mean you must stay insid...
