An escape to fishing serenity

All I Have…..

This spring and summer have been a busy one to say the least. With all the overtime I have had to work, as well as sports activities for my children, getting out to go fishing has been spotty at best. Add that to my home computer deciding it was time to pass on, it may have seemed that I have been on a hiatus or given up on fishing…. However that’s not the case, even tho it seems that the fish haven’t gotten the memo that they are supposed to grab every opportunity to eat my offerings.

The fishing for walleye this season has been on & off, but mostly off. This spring was hot for a little bit, and then went to spotty about as fast as it turned on. While the fishing has been slow around here, places like Bitter Lake continues to be on fire if you are trolling slow death with a berkley pinched crawler. Lewis & Clark lake was decent in the spring till the mayfly hatch, and then became non-existant.

But with fall season upon us as well as ice fishing right around the corner, things are looking up for walleye fishermen. Hopefully the walleye decide they really need to fatten up and take every opportunity to swallow my bait.

Over the next few months I will be keeping my articles short and to the point of where I have been fishing as well as how my luck is. I also have a couple new goodies to try for ice fishing season, and should be able to write up a couple reviews for you guys that are looking at upgrading your gear. One of them being the new TearDrop by 13 fishing, an inline ice fishing reel that looks pretty darn sweet. Another new product is a TUCR (Tuned-up Custom Rod) perch sweetheart ice fishing rod. Both items have me drooling for the ice season to hurry up and get here…..

That’s all I have for you guys today….. Enjoy some photos of Blake & I at Lewis & Clark lake this spring, walleye fishing was crazy that day. We only got hits when it started to sprinkle…
