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

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:

Allen, I've added you as a friend. I'll contact you tonight after I get back in from Church if that is ok.  I pastor a Church in Athens, AL and I have a real busy day today. Thanks for accepting me as your friend and look forward to "gleaming" from your knowledge of Big Blue Gill!.

Welcome aboard Allen. Hoping with this group we can really get into the potential of what our finders really are capable of. WELCOME.

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....

Ok Allen, got your address.

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.
