Bass-Catching Brush Hogs

Brush Hogs by Ben Team

As much as I try to be mindful that bass see the world in an entirely different way than anglers do, I still find myself falling into this trap. Especially when it comes to lure selection. If I feel like the bass are chasing baitfish, I’ll tend to throw a spinnerbait, crank or paddle-tailed swim bait. But if I feel like they’re feeding on crayfish, I’ll opt for jigs or Texas-rigged crawfish-style baits. Continue reading Bass-Catching Brush Hogs

Finding Elusive Summer Trout (PART 2 OF TROUT FISHING SERIES)

Summer Trout by Sean O’Brien

As the spring melts into the summer months, trout seem not only harder to find, but harder to catch at all.  Trout thrive in cold water, rich in dissolved-oxygen, and like any creature they get sluggish when they don’t get the oxygen they need.  Colder water is more likely to be found in streams and rivers, and accordingly those are more than likely to contain the elusive summer trout than a lake or pond.  This isn’t to say trout can’t be found everywhere in their range, but there are most certainly more and less effective places, times and techniques when fishing summer trout.  To help improve your odds of catching them in the heat of the summer, we’ve provided the following tips.

Nighttime Bassing: Night Fishing Part 2

Big Bass Wait Out the Summer Sun, Feeding at Night Instead 

(Nighttime Bassing is Part 2 of the Nighttime Fishing Series)

By Terry Otto

“Plucka-plucka-plucka-plucka-plucka-KAPOW!”

The night was so dark I was fishing by ear, and when the big bass exploded on my black Arbogast Jitterbug I almost jumped out of my skin.  The rod came alive in my hand, and the big fish tried desperately to bury himself in the weeds.  After tiring, the chunky 5-pound bucketmouth let me hold him gently for a bit before releasing him.

Nighttime Steelheading: Night Fishing Part 1

Warm Summer Nights are Great for Catching Nocturnal Steelhead

(Nighttime Steelheading is Part 1 of the Nighttime Fishing Series)

By Terry Otto

One of the best things about nighttime steelheading is that you leave the daytime crowds behind.  I was sharing the bank with just two other fishermen in a spot that was jacked with fishermen during the day.  I cast a glow in the dark corky tipped with a sand shrimp, into the clear water of the rifle.  I didn’t have to wait long.
