I love to see Nebraska waters on fishing shows, and every time I find one I can share with you, you can count on my doing just that.  The most recent one I am aware of is by The Next Bite TV.  They did an episode last year on McConaughy highlighting a very unique presentation for catching walleyes, a presentation that originated in Nebraska!  Here is is, watch it, watch it all! The anglers in the show are professional walleye …

I am a huge fan of fishing clubs and organizations, especially those with Nebraska connections.  I will always tell you that joining those organizations is a great way to learn more about the fish you pursue, become a better angler, socialize with fellow anglers, and give something back to the sport and our fisheries resources.  If you are serious about your fishing, find an organization like that and JOIN IT! In my position as the fisheries outreach program manager for …

Yellow Perch

DSCN1605

Let me say a few things about one of the most popular species of fish that anglers, especially ice anglers, like to catch, yellow perch.  Most people would tell you that walleyes are one of the best fish on the table and they are right.  Except their smaller “cousin” the yellow perch, is just as good, and maybe even a little bit better.  For that reason word of a hot perch bite during a Nebraska winter travels faster than the …

Who Knew?

WalleyeColoringPic

I made an amazing discovery the other day.  I discovered that they actually have coloring books for adults!  I thought I had outgrown coloring books years ago, but apparently not.  Maybe the rest of you knew about adult coloring books all along, but I just found it.  My daughter again rolled her eyes at me when I marveled at this discovery.  Honestly, I did not know. Not that I am going to be coloring in a coloring book again.  No, in spite …

Fall In Review, 2015

MuskieFall2015

Ran into a fellow pointy-headed fish biologist yesterday who has since moved on to bigger and better things in another state.  But, he stills comes back to Nebraska to do some hunting!  He asked me how my fall has been and that got me to thinking that I should give a little review.  It has been a good fall, mild, warm, long, lots of fish. . . . I love fall fishing.  I fish H-A-R-D in the fall; it is …

What to get your hardcore angler?

I guess someone declared the day after Thanksgiving as THE biggest shopping day of the year. Whatever. Regardless, as soon as the Thanksgiving leftovers have been picked over, thoughts turn to Christmas, and for some of us that means panic–what to get our loved ones?  It also leads to dread–“How many ugly ties will I get this year?” Well, never fear, this year I have the perfect gift ideas for those hardcore anglers in your family!

Adventure Report, Close to Home

You all know that I love to travel Nebraska, fish the variety of waters we have, catch a variety of species of fish, and share that here on my blog.  I will continue to do that every chance I get.  However, life is usually a lot more routine than that.  I am not always traveling, am not always able to get away to one of the several waters I wish I could be fishing at the time.  No, just like …

McConaughy Makes Top 10!

You all know I am a Nebraska “homer”–“There is No Place Like Nebraska”.  Yes, part of the reason for that is it is my job, but more importantly, Nebraska IS home, always has been. So, it is nice to see Nebraska waters get some recognition as having excellent fishing. . . .
