Fishing Report

Several years ago when I made the decision to fish for multiple species, I didn't realize it was going to be so difficult. This past weekend I struggled to even get a bite while I watched other anglers catch fish around me, it was frustrating to say the least. I've never hired a fishing guide before but I'm really starting to consider it after my recent trip. There's only so much that I can learn from watching YouTube videos of anglers fishing lakes that I've never fished before. Even the videos of anglers fishing our ...

Fishing Report

It took a little longer than I had originally planned but I finally was able to fish Lake Pardee last weekend. The trip was a last minute decision so I ended up making the trip by myself. Surprisingly, it rained the whole time I was driving to the lake and stopped raining as soon as I arrived. I expected the boat ramp to be busy but there was not a boat in site when I got there. I didn't have the whole lake to myself but boat traffic was definitely below average for this time of year. Unfortunately the ...
