Fishing Report

The biggest fish I ever caught was caught by a rod and reel combo that cost me no more than $80 at the time. The biggest fish that I ever lost was lost while fishing with one of my most expensive rod and reel combo's. Several years ago while talking with a local bass fishing professional, he told me "buy the best equipment that you can afford." What he meant was that if $50 was your budget, then buy something within your budget. With that said, of all places to save a penny, I don't recommend opting for ...

Fishing Report

It's been a long time since I've actually planned a fishing trip. Usually, I decide the night before, or the morning of, and am in a mad scramble to get everything ready for a day of fishing. Consequently, that leaves me a lot of times, making last minute phone calls to friends and family searching for someone to fish with. When I realized Veterans' Day was going to be celebrated on a Tuesday this year, I immediately decided that I was going to go fishing that day. The day couldn't have worked out better for me, I ...

Fishing Report

If you're waiting for the weather to cool down a little bit before getting out fishing you're likely to miss out on some of the best fishing of the year.

Our lake and river temperatures continue to drop ...
