By: Chris Shaffer We were scheduled to film in West Virginia last week. Meanwhile, with nasty weather and heavy rain predicted after filming on the Youghiogheny River in Southwest Pennsylvania last Monday we rerouted and drove several hours north to avoid the storm and salvage a week. Because of it’s central location to an endless [...]
By: Sean Orr We only get a few days a year to target halibut on Washington’s North Coast, and with this weekend’s favorable forecast anglers couldn’t be more excited. Since quotas only allow us a few days a year to fish everybody is chomping to go. In fact, last week it was a gnarly out [...]
By: Chris Shaffer Northern West Virginia doesn’t boast the same grand trout fisheries the central and southern portion of the state do. Meanwhile, there are a few season fisheries that draw large crowds and enable anglers to trout fish close to home. They aren’t destinations, perhaps opportunities for anglers to catch a limit without having [...]
By: Chris Shaffer When we drove by Central Pennsylvania’s Canoe Creek Monday recent storms had given the popular trout fishing stream a makeover since the opener.

As the creek dropped we migrated from Central to Western PA to film Pautzke Outdoors hoping the creek slowly cleared as we arrived. Fortunately, there [...]
By: Bojan Zivkovic This year’s spring steelhead season has seen smaller numbers of migrating steelhead compared to the last three years.

By: Sam Baird Recently, I wrote a blog on how to super charge Fire Corn to help catch more kokanee. However, I know many of you are purists and only want to cure your own corn, rather than using a pre-cured product. At times, prefer home-cured corn to tackle finicky kokanee. Fortunately, Pautzke produces product [...]
By: Kyle Buschelman It’s no secret that good bait catches more fish. When it comes to springer fishing, having well cured bait marks the difference between a poor and successful day and being a full time fishing guide poor outings aren’t an option. My job is to put fish in the boat daily. I accomplish [...]
By: James Swearingen I’ve spent my whole life trout fishing in Pennsylvania and had never caught a lake trout. This year a few friends and I decided to check it off the bucket list and booked a charter with Manufactured Mayhem Sport Fishing out Erie (PA) to catch lake trout. Our goal was to land [...]
