“Daddy Sang Bass. . . “

My Grandpa Bauer could pick up several instruments and play them, by ear.  I am told he and his brothers had a little band and played some barn dances and gigs like that in western Nebraska.  Man, what I wouldn’t give to hop in a time machine and travel back to listen to them play.  My Gramps Roth played the harmonica. Apparently, that music vein did not branch out into either limbs of my Bauer or Roth family trees.  I …

The Good Ole Days. . .

Our video productions guy, Ralph Wall was sorting through some old tapes the other day when he found this gem, a “Fishing Forecast” for 1984! [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEFT2m01wsY[/youtube] Hey, wait a minute.  I was catching fish in Nebraska in 1983 and I don’t remember nothing like that!  And it weren’t in black & white neither! Actually if you listen to the audio, it is a legitimate Nebraska fishing forecast for that year.  But some “comedian”, and we do have a few of …

R.I.P. Snuffy

This week has been “shark week”, http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/shark-week .  You know this pointy-headed fish biologist has been watching whenever I can.  I love fish, I love apex predators, shark week combines the two!  I will reserve my comments about the stupid “Megalodon” show, however. I blogged about the demise of poor Snuffy the seal a couple of weeks ago, http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2013/07/shark-week/ .   In memory of poor ole Snuff’, here is another tribute: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TN6xZjmxUM[/youtube] That kills me.  I might even have to …

“Wives”

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, …

Ah, poor seal.

I love big predators of all kinds.  You will not find me feeling sorry for the “poor little prey”.  Hey, the predators have to make a living too!  This commercial has been running on TV recently, and with my warped sense of humor, I love it! Have a great weekend.

What lurks beneath the surface. . .

I often joke that my best Nebraska fishing spots are guarded by mosquitoes, ticks, itch mites, owls, wild hogs, sasquatch, mountain loins and rattlesnakes (have shown a couple pictures of the rattlesnakes this year,  http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2013/06/adventure-report-june-5-2013/ ,  http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2013/07/adventure-report-july-17-2013/ ).  My pets that guard my favorite spots are raised in a top-secret facility deep in the Nebraska sandhills, Area 52.  The boys in research and development have been working on a new critter to keep the swimmers and fellow float tubers away from …

Fly Tagging

I remember the good ole days when the Red Green Show was on public TV every Saturday night! Here’s a particularly good segment that pointy-headed biologists can relate to. . . . [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erw0CRzeuaY[/youtube] For the record, fisheries biologists are a lot smarter than that. Here’s the website, http://www.redgreen.com/index.html , watch all the episodes here, http://www.youtube.com/redgreentv , and have a great weekend!

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, …

“Trashellunge”

I know for some of my blog readers this is not new and you have already seen it.  But, I know that there are others that have not seen it and need to! I hate litterbugs!  The trash that infests the shorelines of many of our fisheries makes me furious.  Sometimes a person can either cry about it, or laugh about it.  One of my buddies spends way too much time watching River Monsters, http://animal.discovery.com/tv-shows/river-monsters , and found a way …

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, …
