Texas? Away up North here?

Posted May 20, 2014

If you’re relatively new to Bass fishing, you have probably heard of or tried fishing with ‘soft plastics.’ What some folks have mistakenly referred to as ‘a rubber worm’ has exploded into an amazing variety of lifelike and/or bizarre-looking soft baits that appeal to fish for various reasons and under various conditions. One thing is common to all soft plastic baits: If you rig them properly, you can penetrate deep into ‘snaggy’ cover and present the bait to fish that would never see other categories of baits because they feature treble hooks or exposed hooks.From Left to Right among the...

Tournaments? That’s Just For The Pros, Right?

Posted May 20, 2014

Bob with a brute! Okay admit it: You’ve watched those Bass fishing T.V. shows, and when all those competitors with their fancy boats and gear blasted off to their secret honey holes you thought, ‘I’ll never do anything like that. That’s just for experts and professionals.

3 Rules for Handling Steelhead

Posted May 19, 2014

I remember fishing the summer of 2013 for Fall Chinook on the lower Columbia. As we held anchor in deeper water we watched the summer steelhead fishermen on the sandy banks, plunking for Steelhead. They we're doing pretty well as a matter of fact. It was difficult however, to see someone kicking a wild fish back into the water. They hauled it up onto the sand, let it flop around and then kicked it back into the water.This reminded me that education has still got a long ways to go.We're talking Wild Steelhead. What is it about wild steelhead that...
