A PLug

I can remember several years ago, going fishing on a sunny but cold day in February. It was the first nice Saturday we had had in a long time. The plan was to do a little bass fishing and enjoy our first trip of the year. I was with a friend and we were taking […]


I have figured out that men will do just about anything in order to feed their need for risk and adventure. Of course many women will do this as well but overall it really is men who seem to want to test the limits of normality. With just a quick online search, one can find […]


“Regrets, I’ve had a few but then again too few to mention”. Do you remember that lyric; or maybe you can remember the old crooner himself sing that song. I think it was Frank Sinatra. To be honest, that’s a little before my time. There’s one thing, however, that is classic for all of us, […]


Most of my fishing experiences as a youth were either alone or with the gang that made up “Ford’s Woods”. What I learned about fishing came from the same sources. I can remember, as a youth, the day that I was bit by the bass bug. Even though I had never been to the lake, […]

Switching Baits

During the end of January, outdoor activities get much slower. To be sure, there are ample opportunities like catching crappie and killing ducks, but the weather can be a real hindrance for those of us who like longer and warmer days. I really do wish I had more time to enjoy this time of year. […]

Job Performance

Have you ever seen a dog “work”? I mean have you ever seen a dog in the woods point a grouse or a pheasant? It is truly an amazing sight. They pick up the smell, follow it to the bird, stand still with tail extended and one front foot in the air until the bird […]


In the winter, one of the most comforting experiences after coming in from the water or woods, is to warm by a hot fire. Even in survival situations a fire is said to not only provide warmth but to give a sense of comfort. Over the years I have noticed how watching a campfire mesmerizes […]


First light has always been my favorite time of day. It’s at that time that my expectation is at its highest. Whether I’m fishing, hunting or just out and about I love the possibilities and excitement the breaking day brings. It seems that all game is more active during this period. Every cast is made […]

Learning from Mistakes

Ducks can be a finicky lot. It seems that the conditions almost have to be perfect before they will land – especially if that landing happens to be in front of your blind. Not only do the weather conditions have to be optimal but even the decoys have to look a certain way. And then […]

Where You Are

When I first began bass fishing as a young adult I didn’t have the luxury of a bass boat and all of its frills. I fished with a friend who had a “V” hull aluminum boat. The trolling motor was small and the outboard was even smaller. He owned a small cabin on the lake […]
