Don’t Laugh!

DSCN2738

By the look of the calendar, today is April 1, “April Fools Day”.  I would love to put an April Fools prank here on my blog, but I do not dare.  Once upon a time, I posted a spoof about an Olympic figure skater falling through the ice ON AN ICE RINK and that did not turn out well for her.  If she had just used her spud bar she would have been fine.  I know of another spoof involving …

First Bass of Spring

DSCN7232

There is no doubt that black bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, are some of the most popular sport fish in North America.  That is true in Nebraska too, but do not make me pick favorites.  I love ’em all and have a lot of fun fishing for a variety of species of fish.  Nebraska is a great state for that!  However, I have a confession to make:  You may think less of me when I say this, but …

The Calls of Spring

Spring turkey hunting is all about communication.  You make the sounds of a sexy hen and the interested toms gobble back.  Quite simply you are talking to that bird.  Now what you are saying and when you say it is the source of much discussion at turkey camp.  But what you use to make the talk of the turkey can be an important part of the hunt, too. Walk into the turkey call department of any sporting goods store and …

Time for Tick Talk

EEEEK! TICK! The ticks are out! In Nebraska, ticks become active early in the spring and are one of the first biting pests we experience as the weather warms. Ticks are part of Nebraska’s environment, and they shouldn’t stop any of us from pursuing our favorite outdoor activities this time of year — wild turkey hunting, morel mushroom picking, bird watching, tent camping, hiking, fishing, etc. We just need to take the necessary precautions to dissuade these little buggers from crawling on us, embedding …

Take Care of your Auger, and Your Auger Will Take Care of You!

Isom Bauer 002

Even the most hard core of us ice-anglers are now resigned to the fact that it is going to be a few months until we are on the ice again.  Yes, I go through a period of depression every year when the ice melts.  In short order, I pick up the open-water rods and reels and “get back on the horse”, but I still am counting the days until we again have ice! So, I know many of you reading …

Arrrrggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!!! “I lost ’em”!

DSCN1500

If you have caught more than one fish in your life, you have probably hooked and lost one, probably hooked and lost a big one.  We have all been there.  It hurts, I know. I found another blog that had a great post about losing a fish, The 7 Extremely Sad Stages of Losing a Fish.  Follow the link, read it, it will not take you long and it will make you smile. If you lose a fish, do not …

It is Spring, and Spawning is in the Air, Well, Maybe in the Water Anyhow

DSCN5627

Spring is upon us, no doubt about that.  We will have some schizophrenic “ups” and “downs” in temperatures yet, we do every spring, but there is no doubt that it is here.  This is the time of year that many anglers get “spring fever” and hurry to get on the water.  On a warm afternoon, who can resist? You will hear a lot of talk among anglers about spawning activities of a variety of fish this time of year.  Some …

What’s Bugging that Fish?

DSCN6554

I have a very informative video to share on this blog post.  Now, do NOT ignore it just because you see that it is filmed on ice.  Yes, I am proud to be an ice angler and we may be crazy, but that does not mean that we may not know a thing or two.  The subject of this video is fish parasites, it just happens that it was filmed on ice, watch it, learn from it. There are a variety …

TV Fishing Shows

DSCN6126

I have not posted any videos from “KVD” and the Mystery Tackle Box recently.  This is a good one! I love watching fishing shows on TV, video and the internet as much as the next guy, but take Karl’s advice, you cannot catch anything sitting at home on the couch!  GO FISH! And, if you want to take him up on the Mystery Tackle Box offer, that is a great way to try some new baits and presentations and expand …
