Remember--Don't ice fish the river!

January 26th 2015 16:47
I've written about this so much, I thought I'd let it go but sometimes things need repeating...

The Northeastern US is getting slammed with a blizzard as I write this. After the snow stops falling, some people may be tempted to venture out and try a little ice fishing. However, as much as I like to fish, you have to remember to stay off those rivers this time of year. Here's why.

Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!

Frilled shark netted in Victoria

January 20th 2015 18:42
The problem with ABC feeds is that it takes a few seconds to know if you're looking at something from the American Broadcasting Company or the Australian Broadcasting Company. On top of that, I must have woke up in a fog because I kept thinking, "Where is Victoria?"

Be that as it may, an ancient looking frilled shark turned up in the waters off south-eastern Victoria.

Live frog jumps out of fish

January 15th 2015 22:05
It's no secret that fishing is always a bit easier if the fish are feeding and your bait is what the fish like.

An angler in Australia took that one step further. Believe it or not, a frog jumped out of the throat of a fish he had just caught!

Ugly Stik GX2 Review

January 6th 2015 01:22
Ugly Stik GS2
It's been quite a while since Shakespeare introduced their second generation Ugly Stik, the GX2. This review may be a little late in coming but I wanted to see how the rod held up in both hot and cold temperatures as well as monitoring its condition over time.

While the Ugly Stick has always been one of the better trade-offs in angling, many have yearned for more sensitivity in the rod. Finally, the introduction of the Ugly Stik GX2 has addressed that very problem.

Increase hook-ups with spybaiting

January 2nd 2015 00:09
You've probably heard of spy planes and spyware. How about spybaiting?

Spybaiting originated in Japan somewhere around 2006 - 2008 when anglers began experimenting with sneaky techniques incorporating lures that had less action in order to coax a bite from finicky bass. Odd though it may sound, bass fishing is pretty popular in Japan and anglers there noticed the super clear waters gave bass a visual advantage that more or less negated the things that made lures such as jerkbaits, spinners, or crankbaits successful.

What to do with that old Christmas tree

December 31st 2014 18:17
Now that the new year is looming and my mates in Australia are already in 2015, a lot of Christmas trees are coming down and people are trying to decide what to do with them.

If you live close to your favorite fishing hole, you may want to throw your old tree in the water and give the fish a new place to explore.

New split ring tool

December 28th 2014 00:08
If you got a few dollars for Christmas and it's burning a hole in your pocket, you may want to look at a new split ring removal tool called the Wedgie from Red One.

There's hardly an angler out there who hasn't changed out a hook or two along the way and a tool like this may make it easier. I made a special effort to provide a link to their page because it only costs $11.99 USD on Paypal. This is a heckuva lot better than breaking your thumbnail and trying to use a knife blade to open a spring ring is an invitation to disaster!

Sometimes all you need for a good day on the water is a few hooks, some fake worms, and a few sinkers.

You may not want to stick all of that in your pocket but, it doesn't make a lot of sense to carry a tackle box with you.

Do you use Pradco lures?

December 17th 2014 20:46
Ask a lot of anglers if they use Pradco lures and they answer, "What the heck? I've never even heard of Pradco!"

In reality, PRADCO came into being in 1960 as part of Plastics Research and Development Corporation and produces various outdoor gear such as scents, game calls, tree stands, as well as other equipment in addition to fishing lures.
