Coach, Fisherman

whb4

There is no doubt that Coach Tom Osborne is one of the most revered and recognizable people in Nebraska, doctor, national champion football coach, athletic director, mentor, TeamMates founder, U.S. Congressman, and much more.  He is one of our most well-known native sons. He is also an outdoorsman, conservationist, and loves to fish!  Omaha’s WOW TV is doing a series “Fishing with Coach Osborne”, and I am betting many of you will be interested in seeing it.  Here is Part …

First Bass of Spring

DSCN7232

There is no doubt that black bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, are some of the most popular sport fish in North America.  That is true in Nebraska too, but do not make me pick favorites.  I love ’em all and have a lot of fun fishing for a variety of species of fish.  Nebraska is a great state for that!  However, I have a confession to make:  You may think less of me when I say this, but …

Happy New Year

DSCN6392

It is the holidays and I mostly have been “out” of the office this past few days and for the next several.  Never fear, I will be in the outdoors hunting, fishing, trapping, doing something while I am gone, and you likely will read about it and see some photos here when I get back “in”.  So this is going to be a relatively short blog post. End of one year, start of a new year is a time many …

Top Trophy Bluegill Destination

In recent months I have highlighted at least a couple of national publications or organizations that have mentioned some of the excellent fishing opportunities we have in Nebraska (e.g. McConaughy Makes Top 10!, Nebraska Waters Make Top 100!).  I was surfing the web recently and found another one! 10 Top Trophy Bluegill Destinations That title caught my eye, and I had to read the entire article.  If you are talking trophy bluegills, fish that honest-to-goodness weigh in excess of 1 …

Nebraska Waters Make Top 100!

A month ago I told you that the walleye fishing in Lake McConaughy had made a “top 10” list, McConaughy Makes Top 10. This past week I was paging through the current issue of BassMaster magazine and found another list that included a couple of Nebraska waters, 100 Best Bass Lakes of 2015. Harlan County Reservoir cracked that list at #99.  Harlan is typical of our large reservoirs in the state in that water levels can fluctuate dramatically from year …
