Pool Demo!

This event is coming soon; put it on your calendar! Don’t tell me that you ain’t a muskie angler, whatever.  That’s OK; if you show up for this, I will guarantee you that you will learn something about the way various baits behave in the water and I will guarantee that you can apply that to your walleye fishing, bass fishing, etc., etc.  Besides that, it will be a lot of fun! While you are at it, you might even …

Welcome To the Party

So far it has been what I would consider to be a “typical” early spring in Nebraska–schizophrenic weather with frequent cold fronts and even lots of snow this March!  Looking ahead at the forecast for the next few days, it looks like things might finally warm up.  I suspect that most will view that as very good news! Whatever. Let me explain my nonchalant attitude. . . . Most of you know I fish every month of the year.  I …

Siouxland Fly Fishing Club

Got another club meeting to tell you about.  Yes, this one is just across the border into Iowa, but there are a bunch of Nebraskans that are part of this group and I will be attending their meeting on March 30.  I am talking about the Siouxland Fly Fishing Club, http://www.siouxlandflyfishing.com/index.htm .

Gotta Have It!

Already this spring I have hinted that I am a sucker for new baits, like most of  you, and I even mentioned one or two that I have already bought (it was a good investment, caught fish almost immediately).  Well here’s another one. . . . [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwwrHIo7hNg[/youtube] I have not seen any of those on the shelves yet, but I am warning you–if I find ’em, stay outta my way! Have a good weekend, I know the forecast is cold, …

Fish Recycling

I will always tell you that big fish are not hard to catch because they are so smart, but because they are so rare.  In almost any population of sport fish, any species, large specimens usually are the least abundant.  For that reason, I am a huge proponent of selective harvest.  I am not against harvesting some fish for a meal of fresh fish now and then, and I believe we should maintain the tradition of eating some of what …

Hmm, I’m Hungry for some Mexican Food!

I have blogged about the handicap-accessible fishing pier project at Bowling Lake before, http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2012/09/bowling-lake-fishing-pier-project/ .  The group of anglers who got the ball rolling on that project, “Anglers of the Blue Moon”, have already had one fund-raiser at La Paloma Restaurant here in Lincoln.  That evening was such a success that they are hosting another one tomorrow night, March 19.  Here is all the information: Start working on an appetite now, plan to come out and buy some raffle tickets, …

Cabin Fever

Although I may resemble the guy in this commercial, it is not me.  However, the scene IS pretty much how I felt last weekend. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31asNbM9y38[/youtube] Seriously, I have that battery-operated, table top fishing game!  I do not know about the kids, but it is one of my favorites.  For some reason I cannot get anyone to play it with me anymore?  Come to think of it, no one will play the Babe Winkelman Trivia Game with me anymore either???? I …

Trout Fishing Presentations That Will Work Anywhere

Some of you may recall a blog post I made about a year and a half ago about fishing with Doug Stange and filming a couple of segments for In-Fisherman TV, http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2011/10/pinch/ .  I know many folks have seen those segments on In-Fisherman TV, http://www.in-fisherman.com/in-fisherman-tv/ , but if you have not, I recently discovered that they are posted on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/).  If you have not seen them yet, here they are: Those still are not the complete, full segments, almost …
