From the Bait Lab: Spring Spawn Sack 101

2019-03-04T15:26:36-07:00

By: James Swearingen This time of year most anglers think that because there’s colder water you want to use a smaller spawn sacks when steelhead fishing. I don’t subscribe to that. Instead I prefer larger bait and still catch plenty of fish. As with all fishing the key is experimenting. Size Matters When I tie [...]

Northern Ontario Anglers Chasing Lake Trout

2019-03-02T14:45:37-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong Unrelenting cold temperatures have plagued Northwestern Ontario for months. It’s been cold, ugly, consistently -30C and the wind chills are brining us down to -45C. The frigid temperatures suck the enthusiasm out of most anglers. Hopefully, with March’s arrival we should be seeing slightly warmer temperatures. The end to the madness comes [...]

Stagecoach Ice Fishing Super Good

2019-02-21T15:06:32-07:00

By: Mike Ainsworth In town for a skication in the Rockies I took an opportunity to go ice fishing on Colorado’s Stagecoach Reservoir. Stagecoach is a popular and productive destination in the Steamboat Springs area and I’d heard that fishing was good this winter. After spending a few hours on the ice the trip didn’t [...]

Michigan Steelhead Report

2019-02-20T15:07:15-07:00

By: Kyle McClelland Northern and Western Michigan offers exceptional steelhead fishing during the winter. However, this winter anglers have had to work harder than normal to catch steelhead throughout the region.

Fewer Bites, But Larger Fish on Bama’s Lake Jordan

2019-01-17T12:05:13-07:00

By: Eric Cagle A colder and wetter winter has altered our normal patterns on Lake Jordan. It’s kind of one of those years where some days we cant find the crappie. However, the fish that we are catching are huge. By huge I’m talking about catching four-to-six fish over two pounds per trip. We’re catching [...]

By: Isaac Zettle Although we hear it may be coming this weekend, we haven’t had a winter in Penn’s Valley this year. We had one snowstorm where a foot fell and then it melted in a week, and another with only a few inches. For the most part we’ve had lots of rain. This year [...]
