Is it Really January?

January 6th, and it’s my first angling outing of the New Year. I hope it’s an indication of how my fishing is going to go for the rest of this year!

A new disappearing act

After seeing some of the recent conversations related to jigs and jigheads in the Yakangler forums I’ve been paying closer attention to articles related to them. This weekend I came across a new product and although I haven’t tried it, I think it looks pretty promising. In fact, I’m not sure why it hadn’t been thought of before.

Ready or Not, It’s Time for Some Winter Fishing

Now that we are squarely in the shadow of an all-too-rapidly approaching winter, I’ve been re-evaluating my “go-to” baits and reorganizing for colder conditions.  After all, it doesn’t make sense to be clinging to my larger or faster baits when we know the fish are much less active.  That’s not to say I won’t throw a 6” worm if nothing else is working, but as a general rule, my tackle is much smaller for this time of year.

The Act Of Kayak Fishing

I ended up having a great evening on the creek last Friday. The water levels were good and the water itself was fresh, not stagnant as it occasionally gets towards the end of summer. There was the slightest telltale hint of that crisp autumn air that seems to re-energize after a few weeks of summer's dog days. I caught a few bluegill on my fly rod and a little fatty of a spotted bass.

Did I Hook A Trout?

After buying a kayak last summer to replace my trusty old Trout Unlimited Madison I met up with the folks from Yakangler.com. The first kayak fishing trip they had planned was for the coming weekend on the Cumberland River, premium trout water!

Peabody Fly Fishing Report

I went back home to Western Kentucky over Memorial Day weekend.  I had a great visit with my family and a great fishing trip to boot!  Armed with my 5 wt. TFO Fly rod and a decent choice of bassin' flies, I may not have caught any trophies but I made up for that with the number of fish I caught.

Finesse Fishing Tips

With all the talk I've been hearing lately about finesse fishing I decided it was time to gain a better understanding of what the term means (other than the obvious) and learn the subtleties involved with fishing it.  It turns out I've already been experimenting with this tactic, I just didn't realize it.  I was just trying to find things that looked good moving in the water.

Bending Branches; and Moving Rocks!

A few weeks ago I got to take a kayak fishing trip with a couple of friends, Geno and Jamie N.  We met at Canoe KY in Frankfort and shuttled over to our put-in.  It was then that I realized there wouldn't be much fishing accomplished that day, man was that water moving fast!  We still had a great trip, just being outside, on the water, in spite of the temperature being just slightly above freezing.

Trick My Yak

Just like a car or a motorcycle, making customizations to your fishing craft pretty much comes natural.  After using my Hobie Outback for the past five months I started to get a feel for some things I wanted to add and figure out how placement would best benefit my fishing experience.
