Hype Tape


It is mid-summer.  It has been hot.  You might need a little motivation to go fishing: It is the weekend.  Do what you gotta to beat the heat, but don’t forget to spend some time on the water.  The fish are still there.  They will bite.  You ain’t gonna catch anything sitting on the couch!

Time To Get Outta the Office!

IMG_1515 (2)

Holy Cow!  I look out my window right now and the sun is shining!  Seems like we have had nothing but cloudy, damp, and cold, forever! I think this calls for drastic action! Naturally Mike would tell you to go catch a bass, should be a good day for that, but it could be a pike, walleye, trout, crappie, catfish, whatever. . . . I know this much for sure, THIS AIN’T SPREADSHEET WEATHER!  Take his advice, stop what you …

Happy Halloweeney, 2017


Found something funny/scary on the inter-webs.  Thought it was appropriate for today! Can’t they hire an actor that at least knows how to hold a spinning rod?  However, the choice of bobbers was spot on! “Trick or Treat” and GO FISH! Our house will be the one handing out Snickers (not really, we’ve got Gummi Bears).

Big Fish from the Sky!


This week has been the week after the Super Bowl.  The game was fantastic, certainly one of the best ever, so there has been a lot of talk about actual football.  In addition to that, and after many Super Bowl games, there is as much talk about the commercials as the actual game.  So, on the topic of TV commercials, it has been awhile since I posted a good fishing commercial.  Here is one I saw recently that I kinda …

“It’s All in the Pause”

Finally found another funny fishing commercial to share with you heading into the weekend. Of course it is a Rapala commercial. . . . I love fishing suspending crankbaits, In Suspense.  They are a very effective bait that work in many different fishing situations.  There was a time when I had to “doctor” my own baits to make them neutrally-bouyant; I am thrilled there are so many versions available commercially now.  The new ShadowRap is a little different bait, a …

Following the Super Bowl, which I thought lacked in creative commercials, I was lamenting to my family that I had not seen any good fishing commercials this year either.  I have thought that many of the Rapala commercials over the years have been particularly creative and entertaining. Then I got an e-mail with this video.  I think they are taking a different path this year. . . . That is pretty gutsy, calling the shot.  We will see how that …

Whiney Girlfriend

This has been floating around the internet again, I might as well post it here too.  You might have already seen it, but it is so funny.  Anyway, this stupid commercial comes from Nitro Boats, http://www.nitro.com/ . You gotta admit, her outfit did match the boat! Have a great weekend, hope you get outdoors and get a little peace and quiet.

Some of you will probably remember the old Ugly Stik commercials featuring angler’s wives.  I had all of those commercials in a “long play” version and they were even better than the 30-second spots that ran on TV.  Unfortunately, my links to those long play versions have gone bad, except for this one. . . . [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHr_raJmnYA[/youtube] Wow.  I guess there are some wives out there who have some real issues. Maybe they should just go fishing? By the way, …

Fishing Commercial Bloopers!

OK, if you have been reading my blog for awhile you know that I have a warped sense of humor.  You know that I watch fishing shows on TV just so I can laugh at the commercials.  And, you know that on Fridays, I sometimes share some of my stupid humor in my blog.  You can imagine my delight when I found a whole video of bloopers of Bass Pro Shops fishing commercials! [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS6f890sJCQ[/youtube] Have a good weekend, get outdoors, …

Gotta Have It!

Already this spring I have hinted that I am a sucker for new baits, like most of  you, and I even mentioned one or two that I have already bought (it was a good investment, caught fish almost immediately).  Well here’s another one. . . . [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwwrHIo7hNg[/youtube] I have not seen any of those on the shelves yet, but I am warning you–if I find ’em, stay outta my way! Have a good weekend, I know the forecast is cold, …
