Fishing Report

A lot of anglers make fishing too complicated. To me, this explains how someone with limited experience and skill can catch fish on days where others are struggling to get a bite. The longer I've been fishing, the more I'm starting to realize that I've wasted a lot of time trying to outthink a fish. The first mistake I've made was eliminating areas that didn't look good to me. The major flaw in that type of thinking was that everything that I'm looking at above the water line, the fish don't even see ...

TIGHT LINES

I took a walk in the woods along the Stanislaus River the other day and ran into a small flock of wild turkeys. I have been spotting turkeys there as well as seeing them in the foothills on both sides of the Central Valley for about 20 years and wondered how widespread they were. In checking both online and with experts at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, I have determined that turkeys are actually quite plentiful in the golden state.

Fishing Report

Throughout the years there have been significant changes, improvements, and new inventions that have changed the way we fish.

That's all about to change thanks to Trapper Tackles "Trapper Hook." Former Bassmaster Elite Pro, and local angler Vince ...
