Playing the 2lb. card

Every so often I have a fishing trip that will remain in my memory for a long, long time. I can't say forever, as I haven't reached that stage in my life yet. I can remember unbelievable catch rate trips, first fish trips, and of course everyone remembers big fish trips. Today's trip doesn't fall into any of those trip types. In all actuality, the fishing was below average. The company however was top shelf material.

I was to meet an indivual I knew only through the www.…

We got fed up!!

There are so many trips that I run into an individual who looks down their nose and says, "Yeah, I like fishing for bluegill too when nothing else is biting."

Today, I was just waiting for that person to come along. I needed their help - badly. I needed someone, who believes that bluegill are so easy to catch, that pretty much anything will do.

It didn't.

It doesn't.

I spent so much time simply trying to figure out what I needed to do and how I needed to…

Pluggin' away

This week's challenge is in the title.



Goals: - handle 10 bluegill.



Limitations: (Self inflicted)

- fish with only micro plugs





The list is extremely short in detail this week. What it lacks in entry, it makes up for with difficulty. I'm leaving the jigs, plastics, and enhancements at home. I'm going armed with simple different sizes, styles, and weights of small crankbaits (plugs).

There's a few reasons for…

Team Zig unleashed

From my last entry, the area went through a high water period (a few days over flood stage). I did attempt a trip, as I figured I needed to fish in all conditions if I wanted to gain a true understanding of the waterway.

It was a bust.

Then we had snow...............record snowfall that kept us away from any fishing. When we did see a window, we took it. Following is how the few hours played out:

I really don't know what to report from the trip Z and I took to…

Zig- I saw the video you produced "several hours of panfishing" a nice and interesting piece of work. I liked the way that the pages turned. The other video was good too, it's alays good to see kids getting a chance to fish & spend time with folks away from the influence of TV & video games. A good job all around.
