The Demented Driller of Deep Lake.

   No one knows how deep it really is, at least no one alive today.

Finally moved into the new house

Moved into the new location (Western Maryland) last weekend.  I've had a chance to fish my 1/4 acre pond about 3 times so far.  I haven't been able to locate my tackle box yet, so all I've been fishing with are small meps spinners.

 

The bass are biting, but nothing larger than 14".  I've caught two healthy bluegills, but nothing to write home about.  I'll take pictures of the fish whenever the phone finally sends them to my email.

 

Problems with the pond appear…

My McGinty Wet

I am going to post my recipe for "My McGinty Wet" . More creativaty went in to the fly than the name. This is a very effective fly. This summer I used it to catch 25 Gills in an hour and a half. I have caught a lot of fish on this fly through the spring and summer last year and this year. The fly is not weighted so it rides just below the surface (where i usually fish it)…

New Personal Best Hybrid Sunfish!

Well...what can I say...today was actually a really slow day, except for all the very small and stunted largemouth bass that were hitting anything and everything I threw at them. I saw Tonys' major-league Hybrids last night, looked at them again this morning, and said that's it...I'm going fishin'. Maybe I'll get lucky!!

So, after 90 minutes and no hybrids on the bank,…

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…

Nice Fall Morning for Fishing

Let the sun come up this morning to knock the chill off before leaving to test the waters.  Took my fishfinder with me since most of my shallow spots that have been holding fish are not producing since the temps have dropped.  Decided to troll a spoon tipped with a curly tail grub as this has produced well in this little lake in the past.  I had paddled into some water that was 15 ft deep and started seeing fish and balls of bait fish on my finder.  The spoon did it's job and instantly found…

Any and all your Favorite Fish Recieps

Well most who know me also know that I'm moving to the UP in April to Retire and fish.

I would like to expand my taste and try recipes that you are all using across the land. I know that having spent most of my fish eating days in Northern Indiana ,Northern Wisconsin and Canada,  I have missed out on some very good ways to prepare fish.

So if you would please share you favorite with me and the others. I promise that I will try  a new recipe each week.

Fall Break fishing with the kids

Took a few days off since the kids were out of school for fall break and we took the opportunity to fish at a friend's private lake.  We have had the opportunity to fish here before as he always invites us for spring break and fall break.  The fishing here is great this time of year as the summer crowd of campers have left and all is quiet from ski boats and jet skies.  The lake has some huge crappie and in the past we have done well with minnows.   We headed out this morning to get some…
