  1. New member

    It is the custom of our fellowship to welcome a new member by taking him on a "graduation" fishing trip. The day started out well enough but soon became frustrating because of gin clear water, (it is a spring branch) It is the beginning of the C&R season we expected an easier time of it as it normally is a state put and take trout park. That means that these are stocked fish, there are a few stream breed fish. The park closes for two weeks between catch and keep and the C&R season ...

  2. 11/8/17 Eating humble pie.

    I went fishing with a couple of my friends and members of our flyfishing fellowship on a river not too far from home. The winter season is really the only time to fish there as the trout go deep and nocturnal during the summer. We started out with my buddy catching a FAT 17-inch brown. One of the fattest I have seen in a long time. He followed up by catching fish after fish while my other partner and I watched. We tried imitating him but to no avail. eventually, the other loser started catching ...

  3. Recognizing Evidence of Spawning Brown Trout In Fall

Of course I got into a little more depth than I had planned when I clicked on the "Quick Reply To This Message" icon........... I wonder what part of Quick Reply always seems to elude me? At any rate I tried to answer with enough detail to provide a young fellow new to trout fishing a little more knowledge than he had when he joined the ...

  4. The Battle Continues

    So I thought I knew what I was doing. Today looked like lay up, slam dunk, easy peasy fishing. It's October, prime time, and the water was low. The area a redfish could call home suddenly shrunk by tens of thousands of acres because the water got low thanks to a westerly wind. I stacked the deck by going to a reliable low water spot.

    Things started out better than okay. Some nice guy with a good spirit was at the launch fishing and crabbing and enjoying the chamber of commerce weather. ...

  5. The Grass Carp Journey

    It's hard to ignore a 10 pound fish that almost literally is on your back door. That's how it's been since I moved to this house on the lake in July. After fits and starts of fishing on the lake and getting fully moved in and comfortable in the house, I've settled into a routine of casting off one or both of the docks pretty much everyday at some point in the day. It could be at dawn when I let the dog out or I might spend part of my lunch putting on attempting to put a weighted streamer a foot ...
