Dinker Bluegill fest @ Fivemile

Took my 3 year old boy up to Fivemile and worked the outside of the pads

from the shoreline,using crappie nibbles(white) and a bobber. Panfish seem to

be huddled up pretty tight together. Our first cast yielded a small gill...by the end of the day

we had caught around 20 or so. All fish were released. Small hooks are key,we were using

a size 16. The bite was constant...perfect for keeping kids interested. I highly

encourage you folks that live nearby to check it out,the… Continue

Custom Painted Lures

I just wanted to get Stan Durst a bit of advertizing for the wonderful painting he does at a very reasonable price with a fast turn around. Three musky baits - Gold Okaboji, Tiger Musky and Natural Bluegill, and two bass baits with my own design - Midnight Crawdad. Stan's a member of this site if you need to contact him.

Time to Get Crankin’ – Making them, that is.

Greetings! This is an accounting a journey I embarked upon in June 2009 that is rich in tinkering, trial, error, the excitement of the unknown and joy that I believe is worth sharing with anyone willing to read it.

Wednesday, June 10, 2009 – Inspiration and Making Thought Reality

I got inspired by someone to give crankbait making a shot. I used some scrap balsa I found in the garage. I figured if balsa is good enough for Rapala, it ought to be good enough for… Continue

Daughter 5, IB 1, but almost none

My daughter and I went fishing Friday, June 5, for about three hours on the shores of Lake Union again, just five days since our first trip.

It was one of those forgetful days. I forgot to pack her rod so she I let her use my Compre spinning rod. She opted for 6# mono over 8# and it was a wise choice.

Fortunately, I had two casting rods and two Curado D reels, one with 8# and the other 10# test.

She hooks into the bass number one in the first few minutes, a… Continue

I thought that would get your attention.

Yeh, it's about Lk Tapps. Many 'bank' fishermen and women have used the shorelines and Puget Sound Energy dikes the last couple of years for fishing and just taking a walk. I usually pick up some trash along these dikes on my fishing trips but lately it's way out of hand. My last trip and in only one cove filled two garbage bags plus many large objects that took up the floor of my boat for the rest of the day.

The main point I'm going to make… Continue

First Fishing Outing with the Kids this Season

I took my two kids fishing last Sunday because I could no longer suppress the urge to go, but more importantly, to rekindle the fervor and excitement my kids used to have for fishing. Over the winter and spring they kept telling me things like (bass) fishing was now boring because they had no luck.

The cold, stormy, and brutal weather this past winter and spring only compounded their notions and practically ensured poor fishing prospects from the shore, the only fishing that we… Continue
