Fishing Skills

You can call me lazy with what I am going to post on my blog today.  I found this on the internet, it is excellent advice that will help anyone catch more fish.  It is right on!  Read it, live it.  I am going to share it here.  I found this on the website for The NextBite TV .  The title of the article is “Tips for More Walleye this Season“, but if you are an angler, angler for any species of fish, …

All Turkeys, All the Time

It is spring and the turkeys are gobbling.  That is all that is on my mind, all the time. . . and, I mean ALL the time. I found that picture on the internet someplace.  Do not know if it is respectful of the toms or disrespectful?  Would love to have one in the “man cave” though! Have a great weekend everyone, you know where I will be!

Adventure Report, Spring Toothies

Been a busy spring for me, and I have not blogged about any fishing that I have been doing for awhile.  Oh, I have been fishing, you can count on that, I just have had plenty of other stuff to blog about.  So, let me show some pictures and give a little update. My son and I met up with my trout-bum nephew for a trip this spring.  As a matter of fact, Seth, had just returned from guiding fly-fishermen …

Turkey Report 2015: Henned-Up

Time for my first report on this spring’s turkey season.  My kids and I have been hunting quite a bit since the shotgun season opened up a little over a week ago.  We have been casual about our hunting, slipping out when we have time, mostly in the evenings so far.  Call me lazy, but I have not been in the field at “0-dark, thirty” yet this season. We have been hunting both some private and public lands, have seen …

Foxies

I do not live in the country right now, not by a long shot.  But, sometimes it is amazing the wild critters a person can see in town.  We were sitting on the couch the other day when I saw a woodpecker in one of our oak trees.  Now I am not a birder, but this was a woodpecker that I did not recognize and I was curious about it.  In spite of the red-stripe on its head, it is …

Earth Day? 2015

I have a couple of calendars in my office that have something about “Earth Day” scribbled on the square dated April 22, 2015.  I have taken a cynical view of “Earth Day” in the past, have reflected that in my blog, and do not feel any differently today.  Let me tell you why. . . . Earlier this week I stopped at a stop-light and watched the pig in the car in front of me squash out his cigarette and …

Watts Lake Renovation

Our Nebraska Game & Parks fisheries personnel had an opportunity to get another quick renovation done this spring.  There have been some news releases on this, but I am guessing many folks may have not heard about it.  Here is an extended version of the news release, a version with a little more detail on why these projects are so beneficial: Watts Lake Renovated to Improve Fishery Recently the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission(NGPC) renovated …

Oh Happy Day!

Tomorrow is the opener of our Nebraska spring shotgun turkey season.  Yessssssss!  Actually, many Nebraska hunters have been actively hunting spring toms since March 25 with bow, crossbows and arrows.  And beginning last Saturday youth permit holders could get after ’em with a shotgun.  But, the next time the sun rises, it will be “on” for the rest of us. My kids and my hunt started a couple of weeks ago now.  To be successful, we have learned to spend …

Hang Up!

I blog about fish and fishing, most of the time.  I try at least once in awhile to maybe pass along some tips or ideas that might help folks catch more fish, or catch & release a big fish.  I have one of those in mind today, but I am going to warn that this is going to ruffle the feathers of some of you. . . . I spend a lot of time on the water, observe a lot …
