We’ve All Been There!

I found this video on the interwebs recently.  I kind of like it! OK, I suppose that is a nice video to help you relax and get ready for you next fishing trip, maybe even this weekend, but I liked it so much because I relate to it!  “Hey, I resemble that remark”! Some of …

Better Fish Pictures

I am going to be incredibly lazy with my blog post today, all I am going to do is copy a blog done by my co-worker and buddy Greg Wagner.  Don’t worry, he knows I am doing it. Greg recently wrote a blog on taking better fish pictures.  It is a very good blog and …

Go Bowfishing: Aim Low, Think Big, Shoot Often, Have Fun!

Zac Hickle is an avid fisherman. He could take a rod and reel, tackle box and bait, and sit by the river’s edge to try to catch catfish and a variety of other fish. But, he doesn’t do that.

Summertime Fish Handling

Water temperatures are at or near their peak in many Nebraska waters right now, and they are going to stay that way for the next several weeks.  That means your fish handling skills have to be at their best right now–a released fish does no one any good if it perishes.  I have blogged extensively …

Catfish Rut

IMG_0101

A couple of weeks ago one of my many fishing contacts suggested that there are a lot of misconceptions about the spawn period for our big three catfish species, blue, channel and flathead.  He thought that might be a good topic for a blog post and I agree with him! Our large catfish species in …

The Only Way It’s Acceptable to Shoot Down a Bald Eagle is If You’re Saving It


With police and DNR officials stymied, up steps this Army veteran with his trusty .22 and the eagle was saved! Jason Galvin stepped up to the plate using his .22 long rifle to shoot through the rope that was holding a bald eagle captive 70 feet up a tree. It wasn’t easy. After over 150

Another doozy from “KVD” to lighten your Friday, and get you ready for the weekend. . . . He wasn’t kidding, Karl’s Bait and Tackle. Again, I do not feature “KVD’s” “stuff” as an endorsement nor am I sponsored by anyone.  I just think the commercials are hilarious! However, there are some good deals, good …

IMG_1682 (2)

I used to think that top-water baits were a specialized fishing presentation appropriately used ONLY under the best of conditions:  A warm, calm, sunrise with a few wisps of steam rising off the water?  Sure, there is nothing funner than catching a fish on a top-water bait, but my thinking was that there were usually …

If you fish for bass even a little bit, you know how effective rubber worms are and your tackle box likely has 23 different varieties, styles, and sizes in 123 different colors.  You hard-core bass anglers do not need me to tell you how to rig those rubber worms, but on the other hand, there …
