The compounding costs of fishing

Another Christmas has passed, and this year I got my annual fishing license as a gift from my parents. I was reminded of when I was 12 years old; it seemed like yesterday when I didn't have to worry about a fishing license. The only thing I worried about back then was getting a ride to my favorite fishing spot.

Whatever floats your boat

Often I overhear fishermen talking about the perfect boat; of course the brand of their boat is the best!

Take a kid fishing

I received an e-mail this week asking me to remind everyone to "take a kid fishing." With all the distractions kids have today, very few have ever gone fishing. Some have fished more from their couch while playing a fishing video game, than actually fishing. Growing up there were very few things to do at home and if I stood around long enough I'd almost surely be put to work. At the time I lived around three small ponds, so when I wasn't home, I was fishing or just hanging around the shoreline of one of those ponds ...

Better off not knowing

This past weekend while out fishing Clark Fork, I was reminded of the first time I was given an open book test. I remember thinking to myself that it would be easy. I didn't study much because I figured the answers were right in the book, so why study.

Kokanee get a break this year due to drought

This year, more than any other year, I'm really being forced to think twice about where I'm going to go fishing next. Very few of my regular summertime fishing spots have enough water to safely or easily launch my boat anymore. These past few years I've really enjoyed fishing for Kokanee. Lakes like New Melones and Don Pedro are full of Kokanee but are both at their lowest in decades. All of the reports have stated that it's safe to launch with a 4X4, but without a courtesy dock and only one lane, I'm not ...
