Growing up fishing from shore I always knew if I could somehow afford a boat I could do so much better. I knew all my favorite spots would be more productive and I would have access to bigger fish. I had a couple fundamental problems to my dreams. I was 13 years old and couldn’t drive and unless the price of boats dropped to the equivalent of the cost of macaroni and cheese, I didn’t have enough money. After Christmas that same year I was strolling through K-Mart and hanging from the ceiling with a sale sign was a green and grey float tube for $50. All at once my prayers had been answered. I had some money from Christmas returns and some saved from my summer job. I didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger and forever changed how I fished. In this week’s Equipment 101 we are going to cover float tube fishing 101.

This article is not one of those articles that is a ton of fun to write and probably less fun to read but I need to put this information out on paper so everyone knows how to deal with it.  What I am talking about is the dreaded boat scum or hard water buildup spots on your boat.  For anyone that has owned a boat there is no such thing as a magical product, but I am here to tell you that there are a couple of products that get the job done well without breaking the bank.

That’s right, hunting! Some people call it fishing but when going after walleyes from shore; I go into “full on” hunter mode! The best time to be out hunting are periods of low light like at sunrise or sunset and at especially in the eerie darkness of night. When everyone else is at home watching fishing shows, talking smart on internet fishing blogs or snuggled up in bed only dreaming about catching walleyes - you can be out living it! Chasing them from shore is not only productive, it’s usually a fun and exciting adventure every time you go!

The sun is setting earlier and the fishing season transitioning into the late summer and early fall patterns. It’s that time of year when heavy metal rules the water! I don’t mean Guns N Roses in a Ranger boat or Metalica playing Unforgiven while casting for Walleye. As awesome as that would be, I am talking about fishing jigging spoons, glide baits and blade baits. Late summer and early fall is when fish are stacked in big schools and are actively feeding on the year’s abundant new forage. This pattern will persist on most western waters until ice up OR whenever your state closes the lake to boating because they can’t afford to pay zebra mussel inspectors. Either way this type of fishing will be very effective for the next several months and it is a weapon you should have at your disposal. In this article I will highlight the SIMPLE and give you all the information you need to get started.

Early summer fishing is here and the Walleye bite is really picking up. In this article, we will be talking about pitching jigs into the shallows. A couple of weeks ago the jig bite really started going crazy and we started catching a lot of quality eyes. The All Eyes On Fishing staff did a podcast on this subject and I would invite you to not only read this article but check out the podcast at alleyesonfighing.podbean.com titled “Fishing shallow”. I know that you will find the podcast entertaining and it will provide you with what we are doing to get a basket full of fish.

It’s that time of year when the weather is warm and the fishing is on fire! I am talking June is the month of BBQ’s, baseball and bottom bouncers. That’s right, bottom bouncers! Let’s talk early summer tactics for aggressive fish, which can be used for the rest of the summer. I am constantly asked when, where and how to use bottom bouncers. Many look at those hunks of lead attached to the “L” shaped wires and wonder what am I supposed to do with that? Catch fish and lots of them! Bottom bouncers are an inexpensive highly effective way to fish for active early summer, summer and early fall fish. I will take you step by step on what equipment you need to fish bouncer, how to correctly present bouncers and what presentations can be used with bouncers so you can catch more fish.
