Dog Days of Fishing

Every year I hear and read accounts of anglers who think that August is a slow time for fishing. It’s hot, the dog days of summer are upon us, and in most cases, there are more than enough groceries for fish to help themselves too.

Gobblers, Largemouths, Morels and More in Less than a Week

Timing is everything when it comes to being successful bagging your quarry in Nebraska’s outdoor scene. But, one of the many reasons I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle in my home state of Nebraska so much is its tremendous mixed bag potential when the weather cooperates and wild things come into alignment. In less than one week I have managed to have success with targeting three major quarries with some added bonuses. I called in and shot two, big wild tom turkeys with the spring shotgun turkey season in full swing. I managed …

Nothing to Carp About

The nice spring weather here in Nebraska this weekend was certainly nothing to carp about and neither was the fishing action today along one of Nebraska’s water trails — the Elkhorn River as well as in a nearby backwater pond!

It was just great to be outside and enjoy fishing with Isabelle and Andre. Remember, whenever there’s an opportunity to take a …
