Fishing Report

Why is it that every time the weather is perfect for fishing, I have something else planned, or it's a work day? Then of course, when I finally do get time to go fishing, a wind storm, or some other type of change in the weather occurs! Don't get me wrong, I've had my fair share of perfect weather days out on water but they're hard to come by, especially this time of year. With that said, some of the most beautiful days in the spring rarely start out that way. A friend once told me ...

Fishing Report

I remember reading that fish don't have much of a memory. All my experiences observing them both in the wild and in captivity lead me to believe differently. There's a reason certain baits lose their effectiveness after a couple of seasons which explains why anglers are always trying to find a better bait. For a little over a year now I have gotten into the hobby of maintaining a coral reef tank. Lately, one of my fish has developed a taste for some of my prized corals. With the help of YouTube, I built a fish trap and ...
