Carp-O-Rama

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC) has many family fishing events across the state each year including two Carp-O-Rama events; one at Pawnee State Recreation Area (SRA) near Lincoln and Lake Maloney SRA south of North Platte, both provide a great opportunity for the public to get out and see what carp fishing is all about. Carp-O-Rama starts off with NGPC fisheries biologists chumming the lake with a corn mixture a couple days in advance to lure the big-scaled fish …

Reel ’em in Roadtrip: Dog Days of Summer

Our kids were all home this past week, and family time and Johnson Lake time go hand in hand with the Berggrens. Grandkids enjoy the water dragon, and our kids still enjoy going for a pull. Jeanne and I even took our turn! The gulls are just starting to arrive so surface activity should heat up this week. Persistence really paid off over the weekend as we opted to troll searching for white bass. Continuing to change speed and lure selection finally hit …

Thought for the Weekend

Have you ever been in one of those awkward social situations where you are among a group of people and you are supposed to mingle and talk, but you just really have nothing to talk about? Here is my excuse. . . . I saved this quote, I believe Matt Straw made it in some In-Fisherman article or on-line story.  I do not remember where.  But, I thought it was really good advice when you walk into a room and …

Robinson Reports: Back to Normalcy

July 4th is in the books, which means summer is truly here in full force. Right? For the most part, that is a true statement. Some ‘regular’ patterns for catching fish this time of year are really dominant. Things like catching suspended walleyes and catfish that are getting ready to spawn are normal right now. What isn’t normal is some of the temps we’ve had and will continue to have. Will much cooler than normal temps this coming week, it …

Thought for the Weekend

My sister posted this quote on her FaceBook page months ago.  It is attributed to a Chinese philosopher: The mark of a successful man is one that has spent an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it. Amen!  That is really good advise for the weekend, any weekend, especially if you have a fishing rod in your hand! GO FISH!

Happy Independence Day!

I do not know what your family traditions are for the 4th of July holiday, but I know this cartoon is very appropriate for ours: I have to tell you that the 4th of July has probably always been my favorite holiday.  Yes, I suppose that is due at least in part to all the fireworks, but a couple of years ago when it was very dry and the fire hazard was very high we did no fireworks and still …

Reel ‘Em In Roadtrip with Lynn Berggren

Ron Kratzer and I fished Sherman Dam Monday evening. Weather was hot with no wind which made fishing tough. Ronnie likes to troll so we drug Shad Rap’s and spinners with leeches along the west side in 14-20 FOW. One crappie and one small walleye was all we could produce. Boats in the area were struggling also as we were,  so no other fish caught in the area. Tim Shuckman, Dan Scofield and I fished Calamus Wednesday evening. Weather was …
