Fishing Report

For several years now there's been a mandatory inspection for boats entering our local lakes for Quagga-Zebra Mussels. Most of us I'm sure think of the inspection as a hassle but it's necessary to help prevent these species from taking over our lakes. Quagga-Zebra Mussels are filter feeders that reproduce at alarming rates once they are introduced to a body of water. If they were allowed to take over a lake they would filter out all the suspended particulate, zooplankton, and phytoplankton in a body of water leaving smaller baitfish without a food source in turn leaving ...

Fishing Report

Every year, there are new fishing products that come out that quickly become the hot item. Back in the mid to late 80's, it was the Salt and Pepper Grub. They couldn't make them fast enough. Now, I don't know anyone that uses them. I've always wondered how something that was so effective in years past can lose its effectiveness.
