Not a bluegill, but...

Probably a few hundred bluegill went into growing this hulk, so maybe that counts?

It's the infamous Northern Snakehead (26", 8 lb), my first time to catch one. It's too big to fit in a selfie!

I was doing my usual thing, walking a jig with short cranks under a bobber. The bait was a little more aggressive this time: a three-inch storm shad instead of my…

No fishin in two weeks.

Im startin to go into detox here.  Life has conspired to keep me home. Well I got caught up last night and decided to work on my kayak console.  Its looking nice so far but I have to hit the pause button now. I was cuting a small base plate last night and without thinking I reached out to clear a scrap of wood from my table saw.  I got lucky; I only needed two stitches. 

 

Next project will be more push sticks and some cutting sleds.  Also blood does not make a good stain for…

Skunked In Sparkleberry

I finally got to go back to Sparkleberry Swamp.  My plan was to paddle deeper in and find some of the creek channels. Yesterday I loaded up my Yak with my ultralite rod, crickets, and some snacks.  Figured I would take my dog Sam; I wanted to see what kind of fishin partner he would be. I was on the water by 11am and figured the overcast would help bring on the bite.

I found out the sat image and the maps are almost useless.  On the sat images you can see what looks to be the creeks…

Reel Foot Lake Adventure - The Rendezvous

Conditions were horrible from mid-day on. LOFR-BR nailed it.

In hot, hot weather - this place is a puzzle, wrapped in a mystery but the fish are there because it is jurassic!!!!

Adventure 

I took a stump in the rump on the way out (while it was described to me- I wasn't really hearing that we would be banging off stumps in the front, middle and motor). I nearly jumped out of my skin right after the stump hit when a 25 lb. -  fish jumped up about…
