Snake Charmer

I guess it was back in the early eighties when Billy Palmer decided to drain his lake and dig out around the banks. It was a classic East Texas farm pond, with one exception, the cows didn’t have access to the whole lake. It had all the classic features. Stumps, blow downs, mossy edge and […]

One More Cast

When I left for the lake on that chilly Thursday afternoon, I knew that a storm was brewing just west of Nacogdoches about 35 miles away. It was late November and was, in my book, and maybe yours, a perfect day to go bass fishing in East Texas. Upper 50s, overcast skies, water temps had […]

Rocky Point In Panama

My story begins as I board a gutted out Fed-X plane on the outskirts of Panama City, Panama. I am on my way to fish the fabled Hannibal Banks of the coast of Panama and to evaluate a outfitter for a company I worked with called XTreme Angling. It’s my job to look at all […]

Sabine Lake

We had decided to meet around six by the Pleasure Island Restaurant on Sabine Lake. Today I was going to be filming a segment called KTBS Outdoors, in Shreveport Louisiana. I was fishing with some friends of mine for big specks and I could not have picked a better angling team. First, I had Brett […]

The topwater plug has got to rate right at the top when it comes to the different baits and the kind of reaction they draw when they are presented just right. From the subtle” tap tap “on a Texas rig worm, to the solid “thump” we feel on a deep diving crank bait, each bait […]

The Denali Highway Fishing

The lakes along the Denali Highway are Arctic Grayling territory. These cousins of the trout typically mature to 13 ounces, though the Alaska state record tips the scales at 4 pounds higher. They are easily fished from May to September and have a reputation for hitting just about anything, bait, lures or flies. The BLM […]

Crappie-Springtime

Crappie- Springtime

An ultra-light rig, bobber and a jig tipped with a perch minnow hooked under the dorsal fin will bring crappie to the net. Where do we fish? Look for the locals on any body of water and they will be anchored over Crappie heaven. An angler lobs his baited jig next to a submerged rock […]

This tradition has been passed down through time until today, in fact, even now many families still have a house and a city in the country. Today, many are rented villas in Tuscany vacation […]

Steelhead Fishing

Drifting a spawn sack from the snow covered edge of a stream a Steelhead takes the bait and the angler sets the hook. The fish dances while being played to the net. Steelheads like fast water over 42 degrees with a preference of 55 to 65 degrees. In lakes they are silvery with a dark […]

Ice-Fishing Tips

Ice-Fishing shouldn’t be done alone. WHY- Safety and companionship. Trouble comes your way you have help, catching fish you have someone to share the experience. Ice is beauty and violence. Lives are lost each year for not knowing the thickness of the ice. Check the thickness of the ice often. One inch- not safe, two […]
