Post your questions in the comments. Posted by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 …

Ice Trolling

DSCN7156

Some of us hard-core ice anglers refer to “ice trolling” when we talk about drilling lots of holes and keep drilling them until we find fish.  I am a big believer in “ice trolling”. Looks like I am going to have to step up my game! Yes, sometimes ice-fisherman spend a long time between bites. Have a great weekend everyone, make sure the ice is safe, and GO FISH!

Grandpa, Can We Go Fishing?

My kids, nieces, and nephews grew up watching a video we, the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission, produced, Grandpa Can We Go Fishing?  For those of you old enough to remember VHS, we may have worn out one or two of those tapes. So, I was thrilled to see we have posted the entire video to our YouTube page.  Now we can keep watching! Hope you and yours enjoy that video as much as we have over the years.  Better yet, …

It’s On!

LMBassIce2018

Just want to get a quick blog post up today and say that we’ve got ice and our ice-fishing season is “on”! My “New Year’s Day 2018” was deep in the Nebraska sandhills.  I see these news stories about New Year babies and so forth, well here’s mine, first fish of the year! No, it was not a big bass, but it was the first fish of the New Year, it hit shortly after dropping a bait down an ice …

Ice Fishing Clinics 2018

IMG_0655

I wandered back into the office today; it was hard knowing we have ice and I should be fishing!!!!! However, one thing I need to do is tell you about our upcoming ice-fishing clinics.  Yes, it looks like we have ice and these clinics will go as scheduled! I promise, I will be off the ice long enough to be present at the classroom clinic in Kearney on Saturday night.  Believe what the “show bill” says, some of Nebraska’s best …

Nebraska Ice-Fishing on Jason Mitchell Outdoors, Part Two

20170208_181111

A couple of months ago I called attention to a Jason Mitchell Outdoors ice-fishing episode that was filmed in Nebraska, Ice Fishing Nebraska on Jason Mitchell Outdoors! I was privileged to be present for much of the taping last winter, so I knew there was more to come.  Here it is! As mentioned in the video, we had the full spectrum of weather conditions while filming, “There is No Place Like Nebraska”!  Part of the time the wind blew so …

Martial Arts Training

I was surfing the web the other day looking for a new workout program for both me and my fishing equipment.  I found one, it is pretty rigorous. . . . A behind the scenes peek at our rod blank inspection process 😂 📸 @fishingkakicommunity Posted by Mud Hole Custom Tackle on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 Sure hope that propane tank does not go off. Would hate to see what that guy does when he loses a fish. Reminded me …

Long Rod River Trout

TroutCrop

I have never fished for steelhead.  Someday?  Maybe, but not yet. However, as a pointy-headed fisheries biologist, I will tell you that rainbow trout and steelhead are the same fish, Oncorhynchus mykiss, a steelhead ain’t nothing more than a rainbow trout that migrates to the sea.  That line of distinction becomes even more blurred when one considers that inland rainbow trout have been documented to have the same migratory behavior.  In fact, some of the inland rainbows most famous for …

Sharpening Hooks

DSCN5525

I have fished for a few years now; long enough to realize that oftentimes little things make a huge difference!  The learning never stops, even in a lifetime of fishing, and the best anglers know and do so many of the little things that they do not even think about them–“Why do you do this or that?”  “I don’t know, because I always have.”  The best have forgotten more things than most anglers will ever know. Sharp hooks are one …
