Fish Eat Ground Crew Worker World

Gonna return to one of my favorite themes again today, but this time with a little bit warped, humorous twist for the weekend: First time I watched that I sat and laughed out loud. As I have discovered, that is the ZOOperstars “Mackeral Jordan”.  BRILLIANT! We are in the middle of summer and that means the middle of baseball season!  Lincoln has its American Association minor league team, the Saltdogs.  When the Lincoln franchise was started they were looking for some mascot …

Yes, Fish are Slimy!

Buried deep in the volumes of Nebraska State Statutes, Chapter 37, you can find this: 37-542. Fish unlawfully taken; duty of angler. All fish which cannot lawfully be taken shall be returned to the water at once with as little injury as possible, if taken, and before removing or attempting to remove such fish from the hook it shall be the duty of the angler to first wet his or her hands. Now, some will immediately throw up a red …

In Nebraska, The Wind Blows

If any of you reading my blog have not figured out by now, I am a HUGE fan and follower of In-Fisherman.  Simply put, if you want to become a better angler, you better be reading, watching, studying all of their “stuff”–videos, TV shows, radio shows, books, magazines, etc. Recently, in the flagship magazine, they have been re-running classic articles.  You may thing that is stupid for a magazine to do “re-runs”, but not if you consider the articles they …

Wanna See Some Fish?

People are fascinated by big fish, even photos of big fish.  I learned that a long time ago.  If you want to see some, some big fish photos that is, Y102 in Kearney and The Boat Dock in Grand Island are currently running a “Wishin’ I Was Fishin’ Contest”. You can see a bunch of fish, some big fish, most caught in Nebraska, and some really good photos that have been entered in their contest, Wishin’ I Was Fishin’ Album. …

It’s a Classic

I have seen where some bloggers post what music they are listening to. . . . You should see my kids roll their eyes when I pop this cassette in. I do not know if they roll their eyes because of the song or because I am still listening to cassette tapes.  Hey, they are better than 8-tracks! Good things come to those who troll!
