Always Weigh Your Trash

Jeff Singleton recently embarked on his first winter smallmouth trip and caught something unwanted and unexpected. A trash fish. Or maybe not. He tells us all about it.

Mississippi River Smallies

It had been a couple of years since Marian and I had visited my family back in northern Minnesota, so we decided to make July 4th a long weekend. Prior to flying out of Charleston, SC I contacted my Jackson Kayak Fishing Team members about a locating some Jackson Kayaks to take my brother kayak fishing. Aaron Stiger suggested that I contacted CW Outfitting in Clearwater, MN.

Smallies on Swimbaits - Day 2

With the first day of my swimbait-smallmouth trip down, we crashed at a cheap motel and spent the remainder of the night huddled over smart phones pouring over Google Maps. We had a plan in place, but wanted to extend our float option for this final leg. The tricky part of digital scouting is that just because the road runs along the river doesn’t mean that you can get to the water easily or legally.

Smallies on Swimbaits - Day 1

As a teacher with summers off, I used to spend at least three or four days a week on the water. That gave me so much time to get pictures, video, try out new techniques, and really key into what the fish were doing in my local bodies of water. Adulthood, home ownership, and holding my son out of daycare to be a full-time parent during the summer has cut into my fishing time, so I may only get on the water once every couple of weeks.

Soft Stick Baits for Big Bass

Soft stick baits - the original was the Yamamoto “Senko” - catch lots of bass. I will give some common rigging techniques, and discuss catching big bass with a stick bait. Using a stick bait during pre-spawn, spawn, and post-spawn has helped catch some monster bass the past several seasons.

Shakeyhead 101

When the conditions get tough and your well-laid plans and predicted patterns go out the window, good old shakeyhead will be there for you. The shakeyhead worm is possibly one of the most effective techniques available to bass fishermen. It is a staple for both boaters and co-anglers alike on every bass fishing tournament series across the globe.

The last week of August and the first week of September, Marian & I were at the Greely Cabin in Center Conway, NH on Conway Lake. The cabin is located adjacent to Rose’s Cove. Wily Creek flows into the cove and the lake.

Travels of a YakAngler - Lakes to Creeks

As you may remember, in the first segment of “Travels of a YakAngler: Four YakAnglers – Two States” I went to Kentucky and Tennessee. I fished creeks and ponds, and was able to catch some fun fish. This next adventure takes me back down to Louisville, KY to fish with Joe Maione, coachjoe, and his daughter Taylor.
