Just a Typical Weekend

Largemouths on plastics. Perch on beetle spins. Fish for lunch and ducks for dinner. Brake jobs at dusk and a chicken coop first thing in the morning. What a weekend. It was hot. Like sweating in a cold shower hot. I needed some air conditioning. Reeves needed a hand with a few projects so I … Continue reading

Last Chance

Football is back. The Detroit Tigers are talking about a playoff run. Even the Lions have a winning record. OK so they’re 1-0. That’s good enough for me. Summer is almost done. My brain is sizzling just thinking about duck blinds, ammo, new waders, gear for Zeus, decoys or Fantasy Football. Bad news for fowl. … Continue reading

Beginners Luck on Lakeville Lake

I fish a lot of familiar waters. Comfortable lakes where I know the hotspots. I’m confident on every trip because I have the experience that tells me what to do. Which lures to use and when. Where the fish go when the weather changes. It’s fun fishing with confidence. I stay more focused and hook … Continue reading

Totally Tubeular

I don’t understand what makes a fish want to eat a tube. Stickbaits I get. They look like a delicious fish. Jigs? An obvious attempt to portray a yummy crawdad. But tubes? They look like a miniature condom. With tentacles. There is nothing appetizing about that. The paint jobs on some of these new lures … Continue reading

Pass Shooting Geese and Casting Top-Water for Bass

Overnight temps are dipping into the 40’s. Primetime TV is filled with football. Hunting season is officially here. Zeus, my dad and I chased geese in nothern Michigan this past weekend. Crops are up keeping the birds from working the fields. So we took the opporutnity to pass shoot local birds as they left the roost and headed to morning feeding spots. The sun quickly rose as woods … Continue reading

Dawn to Dusk

Last week I fished 3 lakes and shot a couple rounds of 5 stand. Not bad for working close to 50 hours as  a desk-bound cubicle cowboy. Thursday started with a pre-dawn run to Lake St. Clair. I met up with Jake, my coworker and trusted walleye fishing captain, at 5:30 am. We launched near … Continue reading

The $200 Weekend

Sometimes a fishing trip is simply perfect. The weather cooperates. The fish hold to a pattern. Your gear works flawlessly. Even your casts just seem to land right where you envisioned them in your head. This weekend was not one of those trips. Slow fishing, a broken rod and a fried deep-cycle battery made for … Continue reading

Fireworks, Cold Beer and Hammer-Handles

Every great fishing trip has three things: 1. Good Fishing 2. A go-to- lure 3. And a memorable theme song. Armed with some spinner baits and braving ridiculously hi temps, me and the boys laid the hammer-down on some bass, walleye and pike. We landed approx 30 fish in 4 days of fishing at Lost … Continue reading

Adventure Fishing in Northern Michigan

Adventure Fishing was the theme last weeked. Dedicated to trying new waters I took a simple approach. Ask friends for recommendations where to fish. And try it out. The pay-off was an unforgettable weekend. Friday morning started with a quick 1 1/2 hour trip on familiar waters to warm up my casting arm. We were fishing in Badger Lake at Lost Lake Woods club near … Continue reading
