I started ice fishing about 12 years ago, thinking it would get me out of the house in the winter and be an inexpensive past time since I already had lots of fishing gear. It isn't cheap. You'll...

The Lord smiled on me today. Shot a nice 6 point with a 21 inch spread today near Tupper Lake. Nicest 6 pointer I've ever shot. I was surprised that his neck wasn't swolen. Came along at 12:20 as...

I think the date is because nesting fish are supposed to be easier to catch when on their nests. That is definitely true of bass but not sure about trout. I don't think they guard their nests like...

Carriers can filter different types of traffic and I suspect (just a gut feeling) that their higher paying clients get priority and folks on MVNO take a back seat to their branded customers. I have...

I too explored water that I hadn't fished before. I could tell the water was very high but was really impressed with it, even though I only had one strike which I missed. I usually find opening day...
