I decided to start a pond dye treatment. I did it two weeks ago with plans to do it eight weeks later and start again in the next spring. A…

Catching fish with physics and geometry

So, a fish story, My brother Larry is over from North Carolina for our annual fishing trip and we decide to run over to Kentucky Lake the first day. So, we start looking for Crappie and that's pretty slow so we begin to look for some bluegill. He is throwing a 1/32 oz jig and we are catching a few. I decide to throw a pink bluegill slider on a 1/16 oz roadrunner head. We are both picking up one here and one there when I make a cast next to a stickup and get a nice thump. I set the hook and…

Ice Fishing and Me...

Due to an automobile accident I do not currently do much outside in the cold as it is somewhat painful with pins in the ankle. This being said with the advance in winter fishing gear I am thinking of trying it maybe though a guided service. But who knows still watching our pennies.
