On the pro's and con's of decentralized fishing tackle storage

Many of you know I like to think "modular" in my fishing tackle storage.  I keep a selection of poles in my vehicle that fits most of the fishing situations I encounter.  I have both a soft-side…Continue

Living The Tidal Crappie Dream.........

"I had one good day about a month ago.  Must have caught 8 or 9 Crappie, all of them 9 - 10".  And, of course, I didn't have a cooler with me, so I wasn't keeping them.  Haven't been able to repeat that since then."

"John, I know the Great Lakes are getting stocked with Lake Trout, and a few of the bigger inland lakes are also stocked.  Which ones, I couldn't tell you. I've never been able to taste a different between White and Black Crappie."

"Nice!  I've been seeing lots of similar-sized Bass in the lake I've been hitting lately.  Usually as I'm paddling, and I can't get a cast out to try and hook them. I think the Fall feeding frenzy is about to bust loose!"

Arkansas River 10/24

Well, Keystone Dam released some water yesterday, and sure enough, there was a good bit of water coming downriver when I got to my spot.  I walked down the emergency boat ramp and saw two swarms of seagulls diving on bait in the water; good signs.



I get out there, and a gent I know catches three before I can get a line in the water.  Started out with a Powerbait swimshad, and managed to catch a small Sandie on that.  Then, after seeing a bunch of fish hit top, I switched over to a…

Arkanss River 9/17 Zebra Mussels!

Headed out this morning, first full day of my 2-week vacation.  I had three goals that I wanted to accomplish today:

 

1)       Catch some minnows to take home for use as bait.

2)      Catch some Shad, again, for bait.

3)      Catch some Skipjack, to process into cut bait for catfish.

 

I knew it was going to be LOW, as I’ve been watching the level on the internet.

 

BOY, was it low! I haven’t seen it this low in awhile.  Walking out, I…

Arkansas River, Keystone Dam

I decided to go up to Keystone Dam and throw out some of the cut Skipjack Herring I have, and see if any cats were feeling hungry.  I didn’t know how the bite was going to be, as there was no water moving, and we had a cold front come through the day before.

 

I rigged and baited one of my surf rods.  I tossed that bait up near the turbines, and set the clicker.  I then baited up a smaller rod that had a float rig on it.  I knew from previous experience that I can at least play…

Had to go back today....

And see how the size 8 BH Wooly Buggers that I tied up last night work.

 

I started off with a size 6 Gurgle-Pop as an indicator bug, with a size 8 BH Wooly Bugger on a dropper about 2’ below the Gurgle-Pop.  The first fish decided to go for the Gurgle-Pop:

Thank you Allen for accepting the invite. Carl Hendricks told me I should befriend you. We were talking fly tying when it come up. I am a muddling beginner at best. Been tying about a year off and on, mostly jigs though...once again thank you Sir....

I'm surprised I didn't have you on my friends list and I apologize.

Allen, I got my copy of, "The Book of Fly Patterns," by Eric Leiser. To my nimrod eyes, it is very thorough and conciseOf you don't have it, I recommend it.
PS I got it used from alibris.com 6$, shipped. It's the 1993 version and isn't really internet savvy. Aside from that, it's golden.
