I don't claim to be an expert fisherman ... just a guy who loves to fish and has been blessed for his efforts. I learned a long time ago that in fishing, and in much of life, you get out of it what you put into it. I work hard when fishing, I study a lot, and always try to learn something on every outing. I hope you can use the information I post on this blog to learn something as well. Thanks for following along!

Here kitty, kitty, kitty ....

Fished cats for the first time ever today. What a BLAST! And I was in 10 miles of home. With gas prices where they are ... more kitty action to come!

My wife fished with me for the first time in years. She caught the variety pack ... White bass, yellow bass, cat, and big gill.

Brown Bite is On!

Had a hard time finding active steelhead in the rivers this weekend because the water was really muddy. Went in search of browns with my buddies and hammered them for about 1 1/2 hours. Found them chasing baitfish up high in the water column so we adapted our presentation (darter head jigs and gulp tails) and they just went nuts. Had over 40 fish on in that times period and we each kept a few hens for eggs and to share with friends.

Also re-learned the lesson about trusting fishing reports from other people ... Sometimes it's not just the fish that smell!
