Rapala Factory

I found this on the internet: If you ask me I will tell you that my favorite bait or lure is whatever is the right tool for the job, whatever the fish are biting on.  And, if you have been reading my blog for any time you have probably heard me say that I am not sponsored nor endorsed by any fishing tackle manufacturers. But I really, really like Rapalas! After buying that many Rapala baits, I should own stock …

Go Deep

We are well into summer now, and most anglers will tell you that the fishing gets tougher during the summer.  As a pointy-headed fish biologist I will tell you that is true, but it has nothing to due with the fish feeling uncomfortable in “hot” water.  Yes, we have some cold-water and cool-water species of fish in Nebraska that do not prefer the maximum temperatures of summer and for some of those species, trout for example, they simply cannot survive …

They ain’t “weeds”!!!!!

We are rolling into summer now and that means that aquatic plants that grow in many Nebraska waters are reaching their peak of coverage and height.  As that happens, my phone starts ringing and I start seeing complaints on the internet about the “weeds” and how they make it too hard to fish!?  I have to confess I am not very sympathetic to those complaints about the “weeds”. Webster’s defines a “weed” as an undesirable plant.  Rooted aquatic vegetation is …

Siouxland Fly Fishing Club

Got another club meeting to tell you about.  Yes, this one is just across the border into Iowa, but there are a bunch of Nebraskans that are part of this group and I will be attending their meeting on March 30.  I am talking about the Siouxland Fly Fishing Club, http://www.siouxlandflyfishing.com/index.htm .

Trout Fishing Presentations That Will Work Anywhere

Some of you may recall a blog post I made about a year and a half ago about fishing with Doug Stange and filming a couple of segments for In-Fisherman TV, http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2011/10/pinch/ .  I know many folks have seen those segments on In-Fisherman TV, http://www.in-fisherman.com/in-fisherman-tv/ , but if you have not, I recently discovered that they are posted on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/).  If you have not seen them yet, here they are: Those still are not the complete, full segments, almost …

It Ain’t Over, ‘Til Its Over

A couple of weeks ago I figured my ice-fishing was done for this season.  But then our weather swung back to cold, again, and last week I had some business out west.  I debated whether to take the ice-fishing gear with me or the open-water gear.  I took both.  The first afternoon I planned to do some scouting, check out the conditions and see what I could do.  I was a little surprised when I pulled onto the Valentine National …

Staring at the screen

Once again I am going to say something that makes me sound really old:  I have been thinking while on the ice the past couple of weeks that I have been watching a depth-finder dial while ice-fishing for over 20 years now.  Let me tell you that we caught a darned lot of fish through the ice before the fancy depth-finder gadgets were adapted for ice-fishing, and you can still catch fish through the ice without a depth-finder.  But, if …
