Top-Water WI Smallmouth Video

Long time Wisconsin guide Terry Peterson put on a July top-water clinic during this segment we filmed for Trophy Fish Hunter in 2015.  Terry is a master of all things smallmouth, and putting a BD Popper on the end of his line wasn’t even a fair fight.  What a treat to have my mentor and…

Early Trout & Smallmouth

My friend Tony Brown joined Rick Quade from Trophy Technologies and I on Lake Superior for an early season combo trip in 2015 to film an episode for Trophy Fish Hunter.  Spring can be a crazy time of year on the “Big Drink”, and you can find yourself battling lake trout one minute or tangling…

Mid-Summer crappies love relating to weed edges, and they didn’t stand a chance on this July day in 2015 when Nate Berg and I got together.  A nasty weather front had them in a hungry mood, and we were in the right spot to take advantage of it.  To say Nate and I love catching crappies…

Three For The Books

With the fish safely returned to its home, we glided back to the landing over smooth water with big grins and a timeless memory. Preparing for the season to come also brings time to reflect on the season that was.  The 2014 open water fishing season came on the heels of our second consecutive brutal…

Chasing The King

Tarpon fight.  I mean fight.  There is no other way to say it.  They jump. They run. They dive.  They are magnificent! In 2010, I made my first trip to what is widely known as the “Sportfishing Capitol of The World”.  Islamorada, FL consists of five islands in the Florida Keys sandwiched between Key Largo…

Swimming With Goliath

There’s a spiritual connection among men in moments like this, and maybe it’s right that only those who were there can tell the tale to anyone who will listen.   Take the heaviest rod and reel you have, wrap the line around the hitch of your truck, have your buddy (or better yet your wife)…

2013 Summer/Fall Wrap Up

What happened to our fishing season???  The change of seasons is one of many benefits to living in the north country, but the transition from fall to winter is always a difficult one for me.  It literally feels like yesterday we were driving around on opening weekend looking for any open water we could slip…
