Whiney Girlfriend

This has been floating around the internet again, I might as well post it here too.  You might have already seen it, but it is so funny.  Anyway, this stupid commercial comes from Nitro Boats, http://www.nitro.com/ . You gotta admit, her outfit did match the boat! Have a great weekend, hope you get outdoors and get a little peace and quiet.

Bit Off More Than She Could Chew

I have a couple of interesting pictures to show you.  This is a 26-inch walleye recently found at Johnson Lake. Here are a couple of other views: Obviously that walleye “bit off more than it could chew”.  Walleyes are predator fish, no doubt about it.  I have made the point before that predator fish may try to eat anything that will fit in their mouth.  Unfortunately, they can get something in their mouth that is a little bigger than will …

Robinson Reports: Ups and Downs

This past weekend was really described by the title above, and for once I’m not describing the weather. Speaking of the weather, it absolutely impacted our plan. My buddy Steve and I fished a walleye tournament at Elwood Reservoir this past Sunday, and saying it was brutal is a real understatement. The water temp the previous week had been all the way up to 60, but when the 30 degree nights came along during the week, the water dropped all the …

“Pound for Pound. . . “

The May 2014 edition of NEBRASKAland magazine is available on-line right now: As always there is a variety of “stuff” and I do not care who you are, you will find something in there that will interest you.  If I may, let me point one out:  On page 38, Jeff Kurrus has an interesting article titled Pound for Pound, Fighting Nebraska’s Fish.  In that story you will find a species by species breakdown of different Nebraska fish, their anatomy and …

Robinson Reports: Over the Hump

It finally seems that the cold wintery weather has disappeared. Since we’re well into a late spring, my biggest fear is that it’ll turn into a hot summer in a very short amount of time, which would leave some windows open for a short time to catch specific fish at specific times. Right now, we’re taking what we can get. Water temps across the central Nebraska region have slowly been rising, only to be pushed back down at times by …

Spring Wipers

You all know I am a huge fan of In-Fisherman and all of their products.  Their system for catching fish flat out applies to every water you fish, everywhere–including Nebraska!  As a matter of fact, their editors/writers have fished Nebraska waters, many times.  Most recently, you need to watch this segment from their TV show; it was filmed on Lake McConaughy and it will apply to wiper fishing anywhere you fish!  Follow this link to watch it, McConaughy wipers .

Throwback Thursday: Taking the Kids Fishing

I will always tell you that I do not force what I do (as an avid outdoor enthusiast or as a conservation professional) on my kids but I have introduced them, continued to take them, and to this day, bug them to death about going with me (The Old Man) to enjoy time in Nebraska’s great outdoors. I especially bug them to go fishing and have been successful over the years! All of my kids love to wet lines and catch …
