When the water warms up, fish metabolism speeds up and they need to eat, just to keep up and they need to eat even more to grow in size. In the summer, when it comes to catfish, it’s not a question if the fish will be biting. They are biting - and in every stream of any size, in all lakes and many farm ponds.

The Pressure is on: Fishing by the Barometer

Anglers are always looking for the one gadget or gizmo that will give them an edge over their quarry. Some of us literally have storage units full of rods, reels, baits and accessories that were bought with the idea “this is the ONE thing I need to catch more fish!”

Which bluegills are better to keep?

Which bluegills are better to keep?

Every spring and summer questions are raised by serious bluegill fishermen. How many should a single person keep? Is it better to keep the males or females? The answer depends on who you ask.

Most anglers and fishery biologists are in agreement that there’s nothing wrong or unethical about plucking a stringer full of gills off spawning beds during springtime. They are easy to spot, can congregate in large numbers and easy to catch.
