“Fish It Well”

Just found this video from Simms.  LOVE IT! We have discussions around the office here all the time about how we can get more people “hooked on fishing”.  If people lived their lives well, fished it well, we would not have those discussions. Entirely appropriate for this Father’s Day weekend.  Hope you and your dad, …

Interstate Lake Love

March2019BigLargemouth

Growing up in North Platte I discovered that the borrow pits along Interstate 80 running through Nebraska provide some really good fishing.  Between my career as an angler and my “real” job as a pointy-headed fisheries biologist, I have worked on or fished pretty much every one of the interstate lakes, from Grand Island west …

We have five state fish hatcheries in Nebraska.  In any given year those hatcheries will produce over 30 million fish, around 30 different species, and those fish will be stocked literally from one corner of the state to the other.  More than 250 public waterbodies will be stocked each year.  If you are interested in …

Why Are People Paying for Hog Hunts, When We Should Be Paying Them?


Why aren’t people being significantly paid to reduce wild hog populations? There is a war going on in the southern United States. Texas is ground zero, and for the most part, the troops fighting it aren’t being paid. Wild, feral hogs have exploded in population and despite hundreds of thousands of rounds being fired on

Our Nebraska spring turkey season is about to wind to a close.  It was several weeks ago that I blogged about one of my hunts this spring (Turkey Down!).  I was by myself on that hunt; according to my spring turkey hunting scrapbook it has been twelve years since I took a tom while hunting by …
