Are You Voting Every Day?

Are you voting daily in Take Me Fishing’s Top Family Fishing & Boating Spots Sweepstakes? I am! See below. Take a look at these photos of my Son Noah fishing. Can you guess where he’s wetting a line? It’s one of the top four Nebraska park lands listed in the Take Me Fishing sweepstakes. Here’s another photo for you to ponder. Arguably, in my view, with 34 years of experience at Game and Parks, more kids and people have gotten hooked on …

Ice Auger Rodeo

These videos have been on the internet for awhile, but I just recently found them and thought they were hilarious.  Apparently, this is what happens after too long spent on the ice not catching fish (I suspect some “adult beverages” were likely involved too). By the way, do not even think of doing this with my auger.  That cannot be good on ice augers. But if you want to fire one up and give a demonstration, I might watch. Unless …

Turpin’ Time: Homemade Bucket Warmer

Dick Turpin, legendary turkey hunter / call maker (www.turpincalls.com) and how-to humorist describes how to keep your seat comfortable during the cold: Some days, even when the sun is shining, an unheated waterfowl blind can feel as cold as the dark side of the moon. And when a camp stool begins to crackle under your backside like a bag of crushed ice, the pleasure of a day’s ice fishing can disappear as quickly as the last cup of tepid coffee from …

Adventure Report, Early February 2014

My family and I took a long weekend recently and made a trip “out west”.  We spent a lot of time with family and helped them get some chores done, but of course you know we were on the ice as much as possible!  It is time to give you a report, tell you about it. It has been mid-winter, but as you all know we had some brutal winds in January that opened up some of our ice.  We …

Electric Augers

I do not have a lot of experience with any of the electric ice augers showing up on the market.  However, my buddy Teeg Stouffer over at Recycled Fish has put together a nice video comparing some electric augers, check it out: I am running an old 2-stroke Jiffy.  I have had that auger for years, so when I bought it, the 2-stroke augers were the only ones on the market.  My auger is big and heavy, but I knew …

Robinson Reports: Ice Fishing Out West

I don’t believe I’m the only one who feels the winter of 2013-14 is dragging on unnecessarily. With that statement, you might assume I’m not much of an ice fisherman, and you would assume correctly. I know the recent record lows had some ice heads real excited, so I joined them and took the opportunity to travel with some friends in search of fish. We ventured out to western Nebraska and fished areas that none of us had ever seen before. …

Big Fish! Its Happened Again!

I actually knew about this the day after the fish was caught, but I was heading out of town the next day, and was waiting to hear how the anglers involved wanted to handle it.  I knew by the time I got back to the office this would be all over the internet and many have already heard about it.  But others of you have not, and I want to blog about it! Last week we had what was potentially …
