12" Bruiser Bluegill!

So Castman7 (my brother) and I decided to go big bluegill hunting this evening. It started raining but we didn't stop....I'm glad. We caught several gills close to a pound before he caught the biggest bluegill that I've seen with my own eyes. I tried several…

Nice Mixed Bag 4/27/14

Got on the water with a co-worker yesterday morning in search of nothing in particular. I caught the nicest bluegill I've caught in that lake on a point in some shade. I almost thought I was snagged until I seen her. Beautiful. Also caught some redear. Yellow perch came out to play along with some largemouth bass. But the most fun had to be when I went on the hunt for the chain pickerel. I hooked 2 within 15 minutes and both of them shot out of the water mid-battle and threw my hook. This…

The River Giveth and the River Taketh Away 4/26/14

I knew the water was going to be cold. I knew the sun was out. What I didn't take into consideration is the fact that my calves would almost cramp up making me worry that I wouldn't be able to make the hike back to my truck after getting out. I was wet wading. On a lighter note I caught the first 3 smallies of the year, all on lizards. Rage Tail (junebug & green pumpkin). Gamakatsu 3/0 EWG hooks. This was a partial Carolina rig. I fished the usual haunts at first with a crank with no…

4/23 Four Species in the Yak

Got 2-3 hours in the yak on the water after work this evening and scored 4 different species. I used the baby shad jig under a float around brush for the most part. Ended up with 5 crappie (white and black), a redear and a largemouth. Love fishing these brush piles in the yak. Also, as usual I missed several solid strikes.

Yakkin for Crappie 4/20-4/22

I had off 3 days straight and spent a ton of time on the water. Picked up a sunburn, several bass, a bunch of crappie and some relaxation on the yak. I have no pics cause i lost my iphone and this one sucks. (Get a new iphone in a week) I ended up catching a 5-6lb largemouth on a 2" grub under a float while crappie fishing (22"). With 4# line and a light crappie outfit that was interesting and she took me for a ride in the yak, but i landed her. Caught the crappie on Bobby Garland's baby…

On The Water in 2014

I've wanted to start a blog for a few years now and keep it updated throughout the year and until now I've forgotten to do it on New Years Day....



I've chosen to do this on this site only so I hope you guys will chime in frequently throughout our new year of 2014.....



I've always been amazed at how I get completely and overly obsessed with a certain species of fish only to find myself weeks later hunting a different species just as seriously....



So here it is… Continue
