Fish Stories

A few weeks ago I did something different, something new, something that I think is really cool. . . . I was contacted by a guy from SoDakota to do some audio recordings, “pod cast” kind of things.  I talk to writers, reporters all the time, do radio shows, pod casts, etc., so I figured “sure, no problem”. But, this was different. The gentleman I met was Buddy Seiner.  Buddy has an unique project where he records and preserves fish …

Dry Spotted Tail Creek

DSCN6211

My friends over at Nebraska Environmental Trust (NET) put out a newsletter every month.  The February issue had a story about a project that I have known was on the horizon, but I did not want to mention anything about it until there was something to mention.  Let me share what was in the NET newsletter: Dry Spotted Tail Creek Dry Spotted Tail Creek runs into the North Platte River just west of Mitchell in the Nebraska panhandle. Highly channelized, …

Love Your Auger!

Jiffy

With each passing day lately I am hearing more and more folks depressed about the winter, the snow, the cold, etc. I laugh. You cannot do anything about the weather.  If life gives you ice, you might as well go ice-fishing!  Frankly, I am loving this and hope it lasts!  If I quit ice-fishing the day before the spring shotgun turkey season opens, that would be perfect! My nephew called my attention to something that was circulating on the interwebs …

Got a video for you to watch.  In-Depth Outdoors films episodes every week.  What is unique about their shows is that they air them ASAP–within a week or so of taping, their shows are on the air and posted on YouTube.  They finally ventured down to Nebraska recently! Great episode!  Great fish!  A great demonstration of the quality of fishing Nebraska can offer! I have heard some chatter about this episodes on the inter-webs already, and you know I want …

Spring Trout Stockings. . . . Postponed Until Further Notice

SpottedRainbowCrop

I have been sitting on a schedule of spring trout stockings for at least a couple of weeks now. Gonna keep sitting on it. Obviously, with winter holding on stronger than ever right now, we will be waiting for warmer weather and some open water before those stockings will happen on parks and urban waters around the state.  I am not going to mention a schedule, because right now there ain’t one. That includes the spring opener for the Trout …

I’m Not Kidding This Time, Now It Really Is Mid-Winter

P2130022

A few weeks ago I blogged about my adventures on the ice and according to the calendar I titled it a “mid-winter ice report”.  Well, you all know what the weather has been like since then, and even though the calendar says it is the end of February, all the snow and slush on the ice tells me we now are in mid-winter. Certainly our weather and ice conditions have been what we usually see in mid-winter, but I still …

Sport Show Season

OmahSportShow2019

Gonna be ice-fishing for awhile yet, but to return to my “theme” from earlier this week. . . . It is certainly time to begin thinking of the open-water season ahead of us, time to start dreaming and planning.  Sounds like more winter weather this weekend, but if you want to spend some time dreaming, I know exactly where you should be: Check out all the attractions, Omaha International Boat, Sports and Travel Show.  Watch the video! Somewhere in the …

Seminar Season

YorkAdoptPet2019

Personally, I am loving the ice we have right now.  You better believe I am spending as much time as possible on the ice, and am looking forward to some of the best fishing of the season coming as late ice approaches.  However, I realize that the thoughts of many folks are turning towards warmer days and liquid water.  This is the season that everyone wants to talk about fishing.  So, if you want to talk about it, there is …
