While I was talking to member Ray Ditzenberger on the phone today we eventually got to the good ole days of summer.
When I was a kid growing up I remember July's and August weather as brutally hot and no wind . Couldn't catch a breeze for anything to cool us down . We'd just go swimming in the local pool to cool off in the dog days of summer. That was the early to mid 60's . He recalls the same thing and I…
I decided on a recent trip that I would look back and reflect on a few of the memories of the 2013 season to date....If you have followed me at all on BBG you know that I traditionally count down to Good Friday as this usually marks the end of Winter and our water temperatures begin their slow crawl toward the 60s as we wait impatiently for our beloved Coppernose gills to become active..........Within 75 miles of my residence I have 12 river systems and over 50 creeks that regularly produce…Continue

After doing a little research on lakes within a twenty mile radius of my location, on the DNR Master Angler website and a call to the local DNR office I was motivated and directed to focus for the Master Angler Bluegill from this lake. My experiences previously on this lake are considerable boat traffic from pleasure as well as a lot of…Continue
I made a blog post earlier today about Life, Lessons and the Perspective of Big. I also got another more practical lesson on the fly rod while I was at it.
The selected spot for todays Angling Adventure was one of my favorites, an intimate place I know very well. Most of the time I have it to myself and today was no different. However, I was pretty a sure a fly rod would be a tough thing to manage there. As it turns out I was right.
I've never been real good at…Continue
When we talk about BIG, we sometimes need a lesson in perspective. I went fishing today and got just such a lesson.
Lately, I've been planning the purchase of a float tube and sold my 10 foot Hobie kayak to fund the venture. But, the purchase was stalled and for now I'm still shore bound. Nevertheless, I got a chance to rethink my "floating" priorities on this morning's junket.
At 56k acres, Lake…Continue
I have been doing a lot of experimenting with the grass shrimp and jig fly patterns for gills, crappies and more. Here are a few of the innovations I have come up with...Continue
Finally have seen the sun after all the rain we have had in the last week. My oldest son and I decided that we should go fishing this morning, so we loaded up and launched our kayaks at dawn. Water level at our favorite lake was still about 5ft above normal but we were confident that we could still find some gills. Caught a few on top water around flooded structure but went with a bead eye dragon fly nymph to connect with the bigger ones…Continue
Brother Greg and I are hankering to go wading and flyroddin' in a few small rivers soon .We want to target Smallmouths and Red Breasted Sunfish in particular . Never caught a Smallie on a flyrod . I have some ideas on what I think would work but I'm just guessing ;Mickey Finn ,beaded nymphs,Marabou streamers , Feather Streamers, Hopper ,Crayfish, and Hellgrammite imitations and Poppers .Any ideas out there from folks that are experienced with Flyrodding Smallies or other species I might…Continue
