    Funny fishing story

    I frequent a bass fishing site and it has a lot of members and periodically come across a story I will start laughing out loud, and here's one of them..... Enjoy..... My wife doesn't get to go to the lake but about once every two years. Saturday was beautiful here so we went to the lake late...

    Went fishing...again.

    I'll keep this short. Mason, myself, and my buddy Dan went to Lake St Clair Sunday and fished through Monday. Skipped this morning due to a cold front that has slowed 'em down, and motored on home. We caught fish. Lots of 'em, but not as many as we hoped due to horrible weather. I was...

    Burnt out on fishing?

    Lately, I feel like I'd rather go do just about anything than go fishing. Anything from shooting my bow, riding my bike, groundhog hunting, etc. Honestly, I'm not sure why I feel this way, as I've not had my newer fishing kayak a whole year, yet. Maybe I just "jumped in" too deep and didn't mix...

    bow fishing 101

    I guess nobody told these guys that even though you are using a bow, you'll still need a reel! that way you dont actually have to wade out in the water to get your arrow back. At least the amish guys on shore were getting a laugh. trust me, the mud in this place is so deep, i'm surprised...

    fishing knots

    taught myself how to hunt deer and turkey. Figured out how to put a minnow on a bobber for crappies, and sink a nightcrawler for cat fish. I have been wanting to learn more about bass fishing. never really had a grasp on where and when to use the different lures or how to get the correct action...

    Walleye Fishing Still Slow

    Walleye fishing remains very slow! There were a few fish caught over the weekend but the cold dirty water is making fishing tough. From the guys i talked to; trolling out produced jigging over the weekend. I think we are at least a week away from good fishing. Ryan

    Goin' fishing!

    We had a great trip to Black Lake in northern Michigan back in July. As soon as we got home and I started fishing the mudholes we call lakes around here, I was ready to go north again! With time being a limiting factor I decided on a trip to Lake Chataqua. Anyone else ever fished it? I...

    Awesome walleye fishing continues

    Fishing has been really good the past three days both casting and trolling. Monday, we trolled near A-can and pulled 35 nice eyes using stinger spoons, j-7's, and worm harnesses. Yesterday, the lake was angry early, but died down to a good drift and the eyes were on fire! We caught 36 walleye...

    Why fishing is better than sex...

    When you go fishing and you catch something, that's good. If you're having sex and you catch something, that's bad. Fish don't compare you to other fishermen and don't want to know how many other fish you caught. In fishing you lie about the one that got away. In sex you lie about the one...
