Anglers Running Herring For Great Lakes Salmon

2019-10-31T08:54:08-07:00

By: Kyle Deavers Let’s be honest, five to eight years ago few anglers were running herring strips in the Great Lakes. Meanwhile, the last few years anglers have been running bait daily. A lot of tournament anglers run this meat to catch larger fish. And, the charters fleets and recreational boaters have followed suit. Running [...]

Try This Bait: Catch More Catfish

2019-10-31T08:54:08-07:00

By: James Swearingen Chicken and beef liver are soft catfish baits. Almost every time you cast them they tend to fall off the hook. There’s no way to avoid this. Unfortunately, livers are soft, but catfish love them. Livers are two of the best channel catfish baits around. Everyone uses them. Meanwhile, so many times [...]

Learn To Make The Perfect Bait For West Coast Salmon

2019-10-31T08:54:08-07:00

By: Gary Blasi When targeting West Coast ocean, bay or estuary salmon brining them is mandatory. Without brining your bait it will fall apart. Brining is important because in order to properly troll the bait it must be kept firm. Bait in general is soft by nature. If you don’t firm the bait up (anchovies, [...]

Santee Cooper Crappie Still Showing

2019-10-31T08:54:04-07:00

By: TC Lloyd Most anglers don’t fish for crappie in the summer on Santee Cooper. In fact, in several days of fishing this week we didn’t see another angler targeting crappie. Plenty of catfish and bream anglers were battling the heat and dodging thunderstorms, but the crappie anglers stopped at us. Fortunately, we caught lots [...]

Impressive Kokanee Bite at Bullards Bar

2019-10-31T08:54:04-07:00

By: Troy Barr For many years Bullards Bar had some of the smallest kokanee in California. This was because of the large, naturally spawning population. There were too many kokanee in the reservoir and they were competing for the same food source. Fortunately, the fishery has improved in recent years. Bullards is a place to [...]

Klamath River Estuary Fishing Well Now

2019-10-31T08:54:03-07:00

By: Mick Thomas It’s been a long time since fishing was this good on the Klamath River. I’m surprised how good it is. The numbers of salmon we’ve seen in the last month on the Klamath Estuary exceed anything we’ve seen in the last 15 years, and it’s just starting. I don’t even remember catching [...]

By: Chris Shaffer Hat Creek, Upper Sacramento River, McCloud River, Pit River, Fall River and many other systems in the mountains above Redding get lots of publicity, and for a good reason. They are heavily stocked, well promoted by fly shops and frequently show up in fishing reports, on hashtags and Facebook posts. Meanwhile, there [...]
