Combodacious

Got to share some photos with you today.  Fall is a a great time to both hunt and fish in Nebraska!  To prove it, my friend Steve has been telling me about the success he and his grandson have been having this fall.  First, they slipped up to the Gavins Point tailwaters to snag a paddlefish. In spite of government shut-downs and predictions of the flood gates being open and the best paddlefish snagging area being off-limits to anglers, the …

A Moment of Reflection. . .

Slow down! Hooked myself in the ear once.  NO, I was not using a Quantum reel at the time.  It was my own stupid fault, I was goofing around while making a cast, felt something smack me in the back of the head, and then there was the weight of an artificial lure (an old Bomber by the way) hanging from my ear. My Dad extracted it with his pocket knife.  I don’t think there are many nerves in a …

Adventure Report, September 11, 2013

You all know that I love to travel Nebraska, fish a variety of waters, catch a variety of fish, hopefully big ones, and tell you all about it.  Yep, I am going to do that again here, but this time with a little different twist. In spite of what you may think, I am not traveling the state all the time.  Like most folks, much of the time I am working out of the office, at Game & Parks headquarters …

The Good Ole Days. . .

Our video productions guy, Ralph Wall was sorting through some old tapes the other day when he found this gem, a “Fishing Forecast” for 1984! [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEFT2m01wsY[/youtube] Hey, wait a minute.  I was catching fish in Nebraska in 1983 and I don’t remember nothing like that!  And it weren’t in black & white neither! Actually if you listen to the audio, it is a legitimate Nebraska fishing forecast for that year.  But some “comedian”, and we do have a few of …

Hosts with the most

I am often asked how much we communicate with pointy-headed fisheries biologists in other states.  Come to think of it, sometimes I am not asked that question so much as am told that “you guys need to do what they do in _________________________ (fill in blank with your favorite non-Nebraska state).  Actually we are very aware of what fisheries biologists in other states are doing, communicate with them frequently, and by they way, they know very much what we are …
