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

Thursday morning on my way to work I was surprised to see rain clouds in the distance and a little mist in the air. Working with children, rainy days can be quite the challenge as they all want to play in the rain. Fish on the other hand aren't going to get anymore wet, but they do become more active when it rains. The rain has several effects on them. As the water rises, it not only provides them more area, but it washes bugs and debris into the water. The smaller fish are attracted to the food being ...
