US Qualifier - Recap 1 of 3

Sorry for the tease- there is a lot to talk about regarding this Saturday & Sunday's bank fishing championships. My personal highlights and recaps of the ordeal will be played out in this space. There was excitement, there was drama, there was lightning, there were lots of fish and it was hot.


I survived the fishing and the elements but was trailing from start to finish and playing catch-up on all three sessions - not a good place to be. I was forced to rush fish in and…

USA Bank Fishing Team Qualifier - Indiana

Ok,
Here is the space where I will provide updates for this weekend's U.S.A. National Bank Fishing Team Qualifier. Doing well this weekend will mean that I reserve my spot on the team that goes to Italy and fishes against 45 nations.


I am very excited. Much to do. I have a bunch of tying to do tonight. Check back here while I prepare and I will post some pictures of my float rigs while I prepare them. Prep-cam?!


I also will be doing…

Small River Fishing

I just got off the Wolf River, a small 75-yard wide stretch of river that runs through the center of Wisconsin at Freemont. The river is broken up by lakes and in the Spring, massive schools of white bass and large groups of walleye migrate between the lakes via the river.


We usually go up here every year about the time that the lilacs bloom in hopes of getting in the "bite" when these fish eat everything and anything in sight. This is my second year and I am starting to…

Use Live Bait & Make the Water Boil

There are so many titles for this live bait post that come to mind, I should start with a few titles. Rock Your Water With Live Bait. Match the Hatch- er Make the Hatch. Make the Fish in Front of You Go Mad. Loose Feed for Success. BlueGill Tsunami.


So those are some titles I would use to tell you about the top method for getting all the fish feeding in your area. Did I say all the fish? Yes. Even on a slow day, this method takes fish out of neutral or non-feeding behavior…

Chicago Fishing League for Bluegills?

For gill enthusiasts we watch the tv shows and bass center on the weekends and our species sometimes pops up. I would love to have a reality show on bluegill fishermen like Deadliest Catch. I do know of one such show in the works called IceMen detailing the life of ice fishing teams in the upper midwest.

Still, I think we can do better for the toughest fish pound-for-pound in any freshwater pond.

Europeans by my home town had a fishing league going for a few years, on our ponds around… Continue
