Kerr Lake Crappie Update

By: Chris Shaffer Prior to mid-week catching large sums of crappie on Kerr Lake wasn’t a chore. Meanwhile, in response to a week of instability Kerr Lake crappie are frustrating anglers. This pattern will likely persist until atmospheric stability returns, which hopefully happens soon. Currently crappie are scattered and have backed off recent migrations toward [...]

Kerr Lake Cats Starting to Chew

By: Chris Shaffer What a difference the weather makes when it comes to the catfish bite. On the heels of rain and snow over the weekend, stability Monday and another surprise cold rain Tuesday, Wednesday’s fair conditions brought a non-stop catfish bite on Kerr Lake. Blue catfish bit, and bit often, as temperatures rose and [...]

Shasta Browns On the Prowl

By: Jeff Goodwin Last season high water and too much debris kept us from trolling Lake Shasta for brown trout. Fortunately, a mild winter and great water conditions have paved the road to success this year. It’s been an excellent winter trolling season and all indications point to an equally impressive spring filled with catching [...]

Crappie Fishing Louisiana’s Lake Bistineau

By: Chris Shaffer Lake Bistineau wasn’t on the list of places we wanted to film in Northern Louisiana. Meanwhile, with high winds predicted it was where we were destined to salvage a day of crappie fishing. We were slated to fish on Lake D’Arbonne, but strong winds kept us off that lake. Fortunately, often overlooked [...]

Anglers Working Harder for Chrome on The North Oregon Coast

By: Dave Manners Steelhead season on the North Oregon Coast hasn’t been as good this year as it’s been in the past. We’ve had some incredible days, but overall we aren’t catching as many fish this year. With that said I’m catching fish every day, just not as many as we’re used to. On a [...]

Lake Chelan Early Spring Kokanee Update

  By: Brad Wagner A milder than average winter and spring like conditions in North Central Washington are paving the way for good kokanee fishing on Lake Chelan. Even when rivers in Western Washington are blown out conditions remain consistent for trollers vying to catch kokanee up here. This season has been good to us. [...]

Learn to Water Harden Eggs for Great Lakes Spring Steelhead

By: James Swearingen As we transition from winter to spring I prefer using trout/steelhead eggs when targeting spring steelhead. I believe steelhead eggs are effective because that’s what the fish are keying in on. This is natural food source and something they see on a regular basis this time of year. Many anglers use powdered [...]

2018 Springer Preview

By: Connor Taplin Following a poor early springer run last year I’m optimistic this season we are going to have a much better run. Last year we contended with poor water conditions, a slightly smaller run and colder than desirable temperatures. Fortunately, this year we are already seeing much better clarity, warmer water and early [...]

Learn to Cure Eggs Like ZZ Todd

By: Todd Hatfield There are many cures and methods to cure eggs. However, when targeting winter steelhead I like to keep mine simple. The process detailed below is designed for curing scraped eggs.

Southwest Florida Mangrove Snook Bite Steady

By: Chris Shaffer It’s snowbird season in Florida. That was evident by the traffic and hotel prices we encountered this week. We expected that. Meanwhile, we didn’t think temperatures in the upper 80s would greet us. The warm weather appeared to change traditional winter fishing patterns and make fishing more challenging, at least where we [...]
