Topwater madness continues... 8/23/14 - (31 replies)
Picked up three fat highly aggressive acrobatic smallmouth tonight (a couple 17's and a 15) on baby torpedoes--two on the bass pattern and one on what I'm guessing is a frog pattern that has a yellow and orange belly, which was effective in the dark. I tried the black pattern (with white bone markings)...

The lengths we will go to... 8/1/14 - (63 replies)
One of the things that the internet age has brought us is a brand new sport: spot hacking. I know I spend half the winter at it when the weather is just too bad to go out and actually fish. I can think of a few great successes. Once a few years ago a fellow posted a photo of himself and a 20 inch...

Gander Hilliard.....huh? 8/4/14 - (57 replies)
I don't remember the last time I was in there, but it could not have been that long ago. Talk about a much needed update. I literally felt like I was in the wrong place when I stepped inside. This isn't to say their selection is any better. It sure looks a lot better. It seems fishing has taken...

My motor died, I had hard wired it it several years ago as the external harness insulation had rotted away and it was unsalvageable.

Stream smallie numbers ?! 8/29/14 - (2 replies)
This may seem like a dumb question. But I often think about it while I'm fishing. How many bass can hold in a particular stretch of river? Like below a riffle? Is there a point where others keep out if there are so many in one spot? I've read other posts that say things like they don't migrate much...

Tough season 4/18/14
Over the last 10 seasons I have taken the time to visit the hatchery just to see what is happening. There is always a biologist on site and they always have a good insight as to what is happening. What I have been told is that the cost per fish is way cheaper as we were trading catfish for fry....
