Fishing Report

If you ask any fisherman what they like about fishing, they probably wouldn't be able to give you just one answer. Most likely it's a lot of little things that they like about fishing that keeps them involved in the sport. Many, like myself, became addicted to fishing immediately after being taken out for the first time. I actually remember waiting anxiously for my chance to finally go fishing. Eventually I got my chance and even though I didn't catch anything, I could hardly wait for my next opportunity. Fortunately there were a few ponds near my ...

Fishing Report

Wind has to be one of my least favorite conditions to fish in. It's the one environmental factor that often eliminates over half of my tackle box before I even get on the water.

Adding a little weight to your bait, or selecting ...
