This year I feel more introspective about this 'arbitrary gregorian mark on the wall'..What have I done, what will I do?, etc, etc.These are the typical topics of reflection when contemplating the passage of…

Big Fish Story

Big Fish Story



A friend of mine & I drove up to Deep Creek Lake from Manassas, VA early Tuesday morning to spend 2 days fishing. We stayed with Don at Streams and Dreams. What a wonderful experience it was- and what a wonderful host. We were welcomed like old friends and he quickly introduced to our 'new home'.



Don is and avid sportsman and environmental scientist with many experiences and fascinating stories to share. We stayed up until about 11pm swapping stories &… Continue

THE GIFT FROM A SON

As many of you know, my son Matt and I had the great experience of fishing at Richmond Mill Lake this past November and, literally, had a father/son fishing trip of a lifetime. The weather was cold for Dixie, but the scenery was great and the fishing spectacular. But between all the bluegills, bass, crappie and pickerel were other things of greater importance...the chance to…

Northern Illinois ice fishing report

My buddy and I got into a few nice ones late this afternoon....just as I arrive to the lake (3:00pm), I see him running for a flag....he sticks, and lands a tank Largemouth...21".....I fire up the gas auger and zort a half dozen holes, then set up my boards.......I fire up the vex, and on the first time down, I stick a behemoth greenie.

For the next hour and a half, fishing is dead....a half dozen dink gills and craps....no flags. 4:30 rolls around, and I decide to wrap it up...walk…

A Christmas Poem 2010

        I'll tell you tonight ,because tomorrow I'll be busy

        with my sleigh full of crickets , it will be such a tissy

 

       I named the bluegill pulling my sleigh,

       On Bruce, on Greg, on Sharon and Jen, on Dan and Zack , thats most of them

 

       Finally, the last one pulling my sleigh,

       It's the Spirit of Boogieman, Leading the way

 

       I'll fish in the dark, because that is best,

       and…

Limit gills

Hello Everybody,



It's my first time posting, but not my first time catching gills....well, I'm here in southern California(not San Diego) and I have to say, I'm catching record amounts of blues...check it out....I live near a semi small lake where trout is stocked for the winter, I was interested in catching a few rainbows, but to my great shock all the older folks from out of town were catching a hell of a lot of bluegill...and ALL were keepers. So I quickly set one rod for Rainbows… Continue

Late Fall - Early Winter Dock fishing

Hi Everyone,
Took the boat out last week to do some fishing. Came across a pattern for catching Crappie several years ago which seems to be reliable, as it occurs every year around this time in midwestern Illinois.


The Crappie start moving shallow once the water temperature starts to drop into the lower 50's to mid 40 degree range. I target the ends of boat docks in the marinas. Many of the docks have two poles at the sides of each boat slip, which the dock…
