working the bottom

I think I will do so.

I took my new kayak out last night (birthday present from whole family) to just get it in the water and also to try it as a casting platform. It was quite nice. Very...

I agree. Those first days out in the early spring seem like gifts after a long winter. I assume I am going to get skunked a majority of the time until the spring spawning bonanza starts (I fish...

Re: Sunning Carp

I hear great things about that book but I have gained most of my information from boards like this and a few good on-line sites.

Bowfin on the fly

Last year I landed a couple of bowfin on the fly. They were great sport.

I happen to care very little about the opinions of the locals, or the old guys, or the rednecks or anyone else who has...

Sounds like a good day of fishing.

I was having great luck for the past few weeks (one day I caught 8, and most of them were during work hours) but the recent rains have muddied up the water and I...

I am on the upper Mississippi, I fish them near Minneapolis above and below lock and dam #1.

I would call them opportunistic, not scavengers. I watch them actively hunt very active prey like crawfish and aquatic insects all the time.

I have had good luck with a crawfish pattern and tiny...

Last night I was catching 3" green sunfish for my aquarium with a size 20 wire nymph and an 18" inch carp decided it looked good to eat. You could barely see...

That's a new one for me. I hurl realistic nymphs and get snubbed and they chuck glued on coffee beans, it ain't fair. :)

I have found that just a little puff or glob of white can often get a...
