We are a few days into the new year of 2013 and you probably already are tired of hearing what is new for this year or what new resolutions you should make.  Sorry, I want to point out a couple of others. . . .

Our NEW 2013-2014 Fishing Guide is available on-line now.  You can see it here, (click on image)

There are always a few changes in fishing rules and regulations every time we publish a new fishing guide, so be sure to look that over.

Likewise, the NEW 2013 Fishing Forecast is also available on-line.  You can see it here (again, click on the image)

You will also want to spend some time studying that fishing forecast.  Believe me, I annually dissect that information and very much plan my fishing strategies accordingly.  There will be some hot waters somewhere in Nebraska every year for a variety of species of fish.  I cannot guarantee that the fish will bite, but I can guarantee that the data displayed in the annual fishing forecast will tell you which waters have the best populations of fish.  You cannot catch ’em where they ain’t, so start by doing your homework and then fishing on waters that have the best populations of fish!

Both of those publications have gone to the printers and we should have “hard copies” available any day now.  When the print versions are available you will find them at all of our offices as well as a variety of tackle shops and businesses around the state.  Sport show season is upon us and you will find those print versions at all of our sport show booths.  Until then, follow the links and see what is new.
