SHOULD ANDRE BE A GUIDE?

Okay everybody...let me know what you think. My friend and fisher/partner Andre Sturkey has been posting some pretty impressive photos on this site as of late. He's catching big largemouths, big smallmouths, crappies, pickerel, croakers, cats, big carp, trout, pickerel, white perch, big gills and more and more. Monster stripers can't elude him and trophy bass can not escape him.

My question is this...should Andre be a guide, and quit his day job that brings in $345,000…

Calicos Again

Last week I hit a few areas on 2 stretches of the main river that is the watershed of my local crappie grounds. The lure of choice was a size 5 shad Rapala Shallow Shad Rap.

 

Caught 1 8" crappie at one stretch, with a 7" redbreast and 12" chain pickerel mixed in. I had many redbreasts and bluegills follow the lure.

 

Caught another 8" calico and a small 6"er at the other stretch.

I chose this spot because I have been by it many times and wanted to try it out. The Apple Barn and Orvis Sporting goods store are here on the property. It is quiet and very picturesque.



I wanted to try this stretch of the Little Pigeon and see how the fishing… Continue
