Tenkara for Bass

I went by the lake today to see how the little bass were doing... the ones the hatchery were stocking in the lake last Sunday. I found them hiding in the grass along the shore. They seemed in good shape, nice and healthy. I don't think this one was really pleased to have his picture taken. Or it mig...

Re: fishing tricks

Well, sounds like your fishing from shore.... Recently, some of the guys have been geting those 16 foot long Shakespeer crappy poles. Tie on about 10 or 12 feet of 20# test line and a hook to match the size of the bait your using. You don't want too big a hook or it will kill the action of the live ...

Big fish, no problem

Well. if I was entering a peacock bass tournament tomorrow... I'd bring my fly rod and a bunch of small flys (1/2 to 1 inch size) That's the only thing I got them to bite today... flys. My "fly rod", a 13'6" Amago, hooked all the fish. But because the Tenkara rod is so light you can't...

Hawaii Flats Fishing

Clay, over at Nervous Water, told me our bud and Sims rep, John Sherman was in town recently and had a pretty epic trip to Hawaii. He fished a couple of days on Molokai with Capt. Clay Ching and, in addition to some bones, got a white ulua (giant trevally) on his bonefish setup. Way to go man! That’...

Hawaii Freshwater

Peacock bass like warm water and sunshine... spring rains seem to be over and summer is here. As the water temperature reached 80 degrees the peacock bass became more aggressive... http://s2.postimage.org/onawA.jpg We're starting to see more fish in the 3 to 5 pound range. It was fun catching 40 to ...

Hawaii Bonefishing

Hawaii Oio I've heard reports this week of some nice bonefish being caught..... some of the larger ones topping 9 pounds. They are not all that big, but then even a small one will get you into the backing. As the water temperature heats up this summer we should see more and larger bones. Clay with a...

Hawaii Peacock Bass Are Spawning

Hawaii Peacock Bass Are Spawning Just 2 days after we found the peacock bass paired up and claiming a spot to spawn... the rain came down and the water level came up 6 feet.... Now those spawning fish are deep and there is no way to see their nests. On the positive side, there has been good action a...

Classic Fisherman"s Catch

Classic Fisherman's Catch We've all seen it in countless federal tax forms... Fisherman catches boot. But this is the first I've seen it for real. ET (Ed Tamai) took a day off from guiding to try his hand at Peacock Bass. He hooked this "Army boot" using a streamer fly and sinking tip line...

Re: Bass

Have you tried that Sage, Largemouth rod? It comes with a fly line.
I got a 30# test piece of mono... twisted 2/3 of it together and tied it off.
That gives me about 3 1/2 feet of double line (60#) and 3 1/2 to 4 feet of single line (30#)
Turns over pretty good.

Fall Fish

With the state trying to lower the water level of the lake from 80 feet (full) down to 65 feet (flood control incase of a hurricane) the lake level has been like a yoyo. With a little rain in the mountains, the lake level can rise 3 or 4 feet in a matter of as many hours. With the water level way lo...

Why Snake Guides

While setting up our flyrods today my friend ask..... "Why does this flyrod have guides like a spinning rod?" (single foot guides) "And my other rod has these swirley type guides" (snake guides) I had no answer... Usually a flyrod has one or two stripping guides and then the rest...

Haley needs to work on the casting part a little more, but once those schooling peacock bass hit the fly they don't stand a chance.

Re: Draft Beer to Go

Last month in Haines, Alaska the guys we were visiting took their "growlers" to the local brewery and got FREE re-fills.
Buy the Growler and you get free refills.
