Been fighting a cold but did breakaway for a quick trip to the local lake – Bethany Lakes, on a warm December afternoon. Brought the TFO 6 Wt and 6/7 Wt Echo Ion Reel for a go at the fish. Back pond was clobbered with growth, did see a few bass moving about. Found a… [read more]
Went kayak fishing yesterday on the local lake. Caught five Catfish using Shad on Juglines. Filleted them and cooked them blackened fish style. Tasty meal but still got a ways to go before the video is done; will get it posted soon as we can…. For now, did a quick trip with the Telescoping Micro… [read more]

This round it was little Sunfish and Bluegill at Celebration Park’s North… [read more]
Been itching to test the DIY Tanago Rod we made using an Ice Fishing Rod blank and a Wine Cork. Looks like it works on the little Bluegill and Sunfish. Next step is to try catching a little minnow!
