“Shoulda Been Here Yesterday”

PA080003

One of the biggest tricks to being successful on the water or in the field is figuring out how to be in the right place at the right time.  I know a good stick who once said he would rather spend a couple hours on a good spot at the right time than all day at the wrong time. So what is the right time? Well, I know waiting to hear it in an “outdoor report” is the surest way …

Fly Fishing Guide

IMG_1167

Haven’t posted anything from Hank Patterson for a while.  This is a good one, and I believe, a little teaser of more to come. Of course you know, what makes things like that humorous is that there is at least some truth to it!  If you know a fishing guide or two, especially a fly-fishing guide, I will bet at least some parts of that video reminded you of them!  Yes, Seth, I am thinking of you!  Man, do I …

Stupid Friday

20190825_160548

Considering the circumstances, I have been trying to keep my Friday blog posts lighthearted the past few weeks.  I will continue that trend today with some stupid memes I have saved.  This seems to be as good a time as any to use them. You know there is very little demand for fish jokes.  I will slip ’em in whenever I can, but that is darned seldom.  Like this one: Actually, chain pickerel were stocked in some Nebraska waters years …

The World has gone Mad

PB050009

I do not know what to blog about today.  The past couple days have been unlike anything any of us have ever experienced.  Many of us are wondering what is going to happen next???? Under “normal circumstances” I would tell you to GO FISH! Unfortunately, it is March and you know early spring in Nebraska means crazy weather changes.  This weekend looks cold and wet, snowy. If we get stuck indoors for very long, or God forbid, quarantined, I am …

Kiss Me

P2130012

I guess today is Valentine’s Day. . . . I am betting many of you have a bunch of lipless, mostly rattle, baits in your open-water tackle boxes. Big mistake if you ain’t using them through the ice too! By the way, if you couldn’t tell, when fish hit those baits under the ice. . . well, they ain’t kissing ’em! Have a great weekend everyone, hope you get to kiss a fish!

Only the Cool Kids Do It!

MED24506

Those of us who ice-fish have always known it.  Others are just beginning to figure it out. . . . Only the “cool kids” ice fish! Don’t believe me?  This commercial has been running on TV lately: I know this, they do not come any “cooler” than Matthew McCounghey! And he’s ice-fishing! When I run into ole Matt on the ice sometime, we will have to share tips: I thought it looked like he could have used more bait on …

Crazy?

IMG_1479 (2)

Found this meme on Respect the Fish FaceBook page.  I like it.  What’s not to like about a Patrick F. McManus quote? Besides that, I resemble that remark! Am I crazy?  Yep, crazy like a fox! It is “Friday the 13th”.  There was a full moon this week, AND I saw a black squirrel in my backyard this morning. What does it all mean? Hopefully, it means ice, SOON! Have a great weekend!

Thankful

PA080003

Thanksgiving is next week.  I am thinking I may have a more serious blog post then about every thing for which we should be thankful.  Until then, this old commercial came to mind: Yes, I can recite that prayer word-for-word. And, am sincerely thankful for the Rapalas! Have a great weekend!

What Personality is your Crayfish?

NorthernCrayfish

Many times I have blogged about some serious behavioral issues in our aquatic biota, stoned fish, and crayfish that are getting drunk because they are anxious.  Recently, I have been made aware that our aquatic critters may not have behavior issues as much as they have personality disorders: Mighty 4-inch crayfish can be bold or shy These revelations from research leave so many questions swirling in my head:  First, why did I do the boring research I did back when …

Labor Day Weekend

IMG_1313

Well, I guess we have come to the official unofficial end of summer, Labor Day weekend.  I typically do not have a holiday-related blog post for Labor Day, but this might apply to your “labor”: That pie chart may be closer to the truth than many of us want to admit.  The problem is, the sliver where it says actual work–at that time I am probably on the phone or e-mail, you guessed it, talking about fishing!  Or, I am …
