Jeepers, twice in one week! Maybe this retirement stuff isn’t so bad after all. The weather and my schedule finally synced and I got out again. With the boat all ready and gear stowed I was pretty exc...

Was literally on my way back up to Wiser when I decided to stop and fish Samish instead. My goal was to try and eliminate smallmouth and just target largemouth. My approach was to hop from pad field...

Our maiden fishing voyage on “Red” is in the books. While we weren’t exactly under the spell of my usual kokanee mojo it was a good trip. Alarm went off at 4:00 and I was up, dressed, brushed and outs...

Got to the launch at 5:30, but broke my pump hose terminal while inflating my boat, so I had to do some goofy hose holding and took longer than I like to get everything ready to go. Got it done thoug...
