Here are some tips and tricks to help you catch more fish from clear water fisheries. These tips will get you "Tuned-in", regardless of the target species.
For years I never caught a bass on a jig. I gave them a fair shot to produce fish and they failed. I thought they were obsolete. I thought I had a presentation for every situation that worked better than using a jig. But now I know, I was wrong.
Its been a long cold winter. Cabin fever claimed some of my time, but not all of it. My most productive time was spent modifying bass lures. Think about it--when you can alter a lure and catch more bass on it, what could be more satisfying?
Hello fellow anglers. Are you ready for spring Bass fishing? I sure am! In my opinion, the I-80 lakes offer the best, most consistent, public bass and bluegill fishing in Nebraska.
BulletBobbers are small planer boards that slide on your line and flip direction and/or color when given a tug. They reduce the amount of casts between catches which gives your lure more time in the water--one important key to catching more fish.
I have never seen a spinnerbait like this. Its inline design is sleek and eye catching, but thats not what immediately grasps your attention.
Its that time of year. April showers bring about plenty of stained water in our reservoirs, rivers and lakes. For a lot of fisherman, this new influx of debris in the water puts a damper on things. But it doesn't have to be this way. It can work to your advantage if you know what to look for.
The wind can be an anglers friend or foe. It all depends solely on the angler's perspective and his/her situation.
Most serious Nebraska fisherman have at least heard about the famous southwest Nebraska guide named Steve Lytle. Well, I had heard enough, and took up my buddy on his idea to head down to Red Willow and see what Steve was all about. On May 27th, we were up to the challenge.
I've been fishing since I was 8 years old and began fishing artificials 25 years ago with Cotton Cordell's Big O crankbait and Bill Norman's Snatrix plastic worm. I've read hundreds of articles that gave reasons that fish attack lures, but my experience tells me that there are abstract qualities in a lure that cause it to be seen, tracked, and struck.
Sight fishing is absolutely one of my favorite ways to fish. It puts you one on one with fish that know you are there. It makes catching them a whole lot more satisfying because the odds are more even.
Sight, sound, and feel are three factors to consider when choosing an artificial lure on tough days or on days when the pattern is spotty.
Why my absolute favorite fishing spots are farm ponds.
Not only is the Huddleston Deluxe lure $39, but its also huge! My gut tells me this thing could only club a largemouth to death, but apparently people are catching monsters with this thing.
Most people fish to catch fish of size, and keep track of how big their biggest fish has been. I do that too, but I also keep track of how many different types of fish I catch.
