Great Fall

IMG_0458

As I sit here “blogging”, I am pretty sure my open-water fishing for this season is done.  Sure you could still find a few areas of open-water and dry off some fish, you can all winter long if you wish, but most Nebraska anglers are going to be hitting the ice soon, very soon. So, that means it is time for me to give a report on my and my son’s fall fishing.  In recent weeks I have showed you …

Fall Tour

img_0425a

I had some meetings to attend “out west” a couple of weeks ago.  That gave me a chance to re-visit some places I do not get to nearly enough.  Fall is one of the prettiest times to be there.  I had to stop and catch my breath when I finally saw the end of the road. The view was just as pretty looking back from whence I had just come. Here is one of the cathedrals I visited. And looking …

Fall is Big Fish Time!

dscn2752c

The fall bite is on, the best open-water fishing of the year is upon us!  It is also the best time of year to use big baits for big fish.  Don’t believe me? OK, now I must post the disclaimers because I learned a long time ago that some people take things they see on the internet way too seriously, and some people do not have much of a sense of humor. . . . That is a picture one …

Lemonade

MuskieFall20152

I will readily admit to you that I very much wish we had enough ice to be fishing on right now.  I L-O-V-E to ice-fish!  I am warning you, the longer this winter goes without ice, the grumpier I am going to get. But I have learned that sometimes life gives you lemons and you just have to make lemonade. . . . A week ago I posted a little review of what has been a great, long, and very …

Fall In Review, 2015

MuskieFall2015

Ran into a fellow pointy-headed fish biologist yesterday who has since moved on to bigger and better things in another state.  But, he stills comes back to Nebraska to do some hunting!  He asked me how my fall has been and that got me to thinking that I should give a little review.  It has been a good fall, mild, warm, long, lots of fish. . . . I love fall fishing.  I fish H-A-R-D in the fall; it is …

Road Work at Lake Wanahoo

EF20140718_620

I suppose I may be the only one who is still fishing open water.  As I said before, yes I am crazy, crazy like a fox.  When I can walk on it, then my open-water fishing will be over for the year (and my ice-fishing will begin!).  So, no, I am not done fishing open water yet, will dry some more off before it freezes. I may be in the minority, but there still may be a few others that …

A Late Autumn Fish Story

It had been a frustrating autumn evening, one that felt right, but had resulted in no fish.  I was on my third lure change already. He appeared suddenly.  I had my head and head-lamp down tying on a bait; all of a sudden he was standing right beside me, peering into my tackle box.  Where he came from or how he arrived unnoticed at my side, I have no idea.  He was just there. An old gentleman with thick glasses, a well-worn seed corn …

Bandit Brownies

The weather has been relatively hot in Nebraska the past couple of weeks, but the calendar says it is fall.  The calendar is not wrong.  The fall bite has started and I have been trying to spend as much time on the water as possible the past several weeks.  Some evenings, as I stand in the water waiting for a big fish, my mind wanders back to autumns past, of fish caught and memories made. I guess I am old enough …

Fall Fishing at its Finest

It’s the time of year when the fish are filling their bellies as much as they can, because like us, they know what’s coming. The conditions the past couple of weeks have been great for getting on the water, and with the first cold snap came a great bite. It’s time to capitalize on it while you can. There were some great days to be outside in October. I believe one day we even had record highs near 90 degrees! This …

“The Eat”

The weather forecast for next week is cold.  Of course I will be all fired up to hit the ice as soon as it is safe, but I hate to see my fall fishing come to an end. I may never cast a spey rod on some western river trying to catch a steelhead, but there is a lot in this video that I can relate to. A lot that tells you why I hope I have a few weeks of …
