The first fishing advice I ever received was to be patient. I'm not sure if I even understood the word back then, I just knew that I was expected to wait for the fish to come to me. This time of year, I'm constantly reminded of that advice as the bites are usually harder to come by. There are a couple of things that I do to keep motivated when the fishing gets tough. I always bring a warm thermos of coffee. Just about the time frustration starts to set in, I pull out my thermos and warm ...
A lot of people that I've been talking to are concerned about the lack of rain we've had so far this season.

The best thing about rain this time of the year is that it knocks down the fog. The worst thing about it of course is staying dry. When it comes to purchasing rain gear, you get what you pay for. The least expensive gear might hold up for a trip or two but it's definitely not going to be comfortable. Years ago, I purchased a top of the line rain suit that still provides me comfort and dryness to this day. This morning I was awoken to the sound of rain beating down on ground. As always when seeing ...
This year, while celebrating Thanksgiving, I mentioned to a family member that I was excited about my upcoming fishing trip. He responded by saying "most guys can't handle waiting six or more hours without getting a bite." I responded by saying "I've waited days for a bite in the past." My trip was set, rain or shine, I was going to go Sturgeon fishing. I was particularly excited about this trip because I was going to be reuniting with friends that date back to Jr. High.
