Lots of Big Sunnies for JT

I took JT out for a little fishing adventure yesterday afternoon. We stopped at a gas station to pick up a couple cans of waxies. JT caught about a dozen nice bluegills and pumpkinseed sunfish within an hour. Fun day at the lake!

Bullseye & the Anglr App

A pretty cool little gadget called the Bullseye I wanted to share with you about my experience with it during my recent bass outing in southwest Iowa. I must say I was very impressed with the Bullseye after utilizing it for two and a half days. I successfully paired it with my Anglr app right on my phone. As I caught fish, I marked the GPS location where I caught them and was able to log in my catch, lure, rod & reel used, any notes, etc. right into the Anglr app. This info will be very helpful for next year as I plan to make the Iowa trip an annual thing. Not only was the logbook useful but the app also gave me real-time minute-by-minute weather conditions like air temp, wind speed and direction, and cloud coverage too.
Attached are a few photos from my screen capture. One feature I didn’t utilize and wished I did was recording my entire trip with the Anglr app. I will be going out in a couple weeks to fish for crappies and will definitely track my outing.
I can already see that I will be using the Bullseye heavily this season and for years to come!

Iowa Kayak Bass Fishing (April 2019)

What a great fun Iowa trip spending the last couple days fishing for big chunky bass with these awesome guys! Biggest was around 21 inches. It was nice to breakaway from the long cold winter and catch some fish. Definitely a memorable trip!

Here is a video compilation of our adventure to Iowa for early season bass fishing this past weekend. Video is a little long but the ending is worth it. Enjoy the journey!

2019 Northwest Sportshow

A fun family outing to the Northwest Sportshow this past Saturday! We stopped at the Hi Tempo Snowsports & Watersports booth first checking out the latest Hobie Outback model and catching up with my friends Jay Suhsen and Grant Carston.


Cold Morning Bassin’

Brrr… It’s a cold morning when every few casts the rod guides/eyelets freeze over. Bass were still chomping though. This one on a jig and an Adrenaline Bug!


Bass ‘n Jigs

One word to describe today’s fishing…JIGS!! Except for one lone small bass caught on a spinnerbait earlier in the morning, the bass were stacked up shallow in the trees and deep in the pads. The only thing they seemed to want was a brown flipping jig rigged with an X Zone Lures Adrenaline Bug applied with Baitmate Fish Attractant BiteStick Max. Chilly day but well worth the effort on this fine fall day.

Channel Catfish

Fishing a small bass lake, this chunky channel cat was a surprise catch! This one slammed a squarebill crank not too far from my canoe.
