Lake Tapps No Wake Zones

Just a reminder folks to pay attention to the 'No Wake' zones on the lakes we fish.

This morning(5/27) a Nitro bass boat w/musky club decal on it lauched about the same time I did but took off well within the 'no wake' zone of the Pierce Co N Tapps Park. They were flying as they passed within yards of a 5 mph buoy.

Gentlemen, the property owners of Lk Tapps would like nothing better than to shut these boat launches down to the public. Let's not give them any ammunition, please.

I… Continue

Receiving too many Emails from WaFish?

? about bass beds

Will bass make new beds every year or ever use any from the previous spawn?
Just curious....hit Lake Tapps again today and saw a few beds but

Moses lake Question

I was out pre-fishing Moses all weekend. I ran up North because I had never been up in that area. The farther north I drove, the more clumps of crud I saw. While fishing I could see mud clumps floating up to the surface, coming up from the bottom. At times I could always see at least one clump floating up. What the hecks the deal ? The North end will likely get pretty murky when those clumps break apart from all the boat traffic or wind I'd imagine. Is this normal for the lake ??

Crazy Home Owners

I know a lot of you have some good stories on home owners that have came out yelling, swearing, throwing stuff at your boat and such so lets here them!...

I bring this up because I just had one happen to me...

I was out on Lake Stevens yesterday flipping docks. I pulled up to one of my favorite spots and starting to move up close to a dock and an old guy came out of the house. He looked like he wanted to talk and tell me a fishing story or how he saw a big one under his… Continue

Spring Preparation

Hi Everyone,

With the spring fishing time upon us, now is the time to make sure that your gear is dialed in for those big tournaments and big fish fun trips here are a few things I do to make sure my gear is good to go:

-Take a Q-tip to all of my rods guides. I rub the Q-tip around the inside of the ceramic pieces, and rod tips in the case of the GLX rods. If any piece of the q-tip sticks to the inside of the ceramic piece you should double check it for cracks or grooves… Continue

Top waters and annoying birds?

Nothing is better than early, cool summer mornings than the sound of a bass explode at the surface as it engulfs your topwater bait! This has always been my favorite and most exciting ways to fish for bass.

When you start getting into the larger topwaters say...5 -inch poppers, or walk the dogg type baits I have allot of issues with birds wanting a piece of my lure. Last year I was using a zara and saw a bird come down from behind me and knew exactly what it was doing. I retreived as… Continue

Lake Tapps

So I just moved to Lake Tapps and haven't gotten out yet...want to soon before all the as#$holes get out there! So, are their largies in this lake? The reason I ask, is bec. I was driving by snag island the other day and saw two boats fishing a cove/stump field in what i guessed couldn't be more than about 3 to 4 ft. of water (I drove by it once when it was empty, so I know what the bottom looks like)...anyways, I'm assuming they were fish'n large mouth. No need to give up any secrets, just… Continue

Silver Lake

2 May, 09: 12:00 - 15:00, 60 degrees, Cloudy, N. wind to 20 mph.

Fished the North side today checking the developing weeds. The high wind made it hard to position the boat so the boys and I wound up anchoring and tossing. Then pulling up and moving a ways down and anchoring again. I had 1 musky follow twice, 2 different rainbow trout lures, but I couldn't get it to commit. Nice mid 30" fish. The dang rain started and we diecided to pull out for the day. Crummy weather.

The muskies are… Continue
