1. I first tried Spruce Run Reservoir because my cousin Mark still hasn't caught a Hybrid Striped Bass. Nothing there. We went to Round Valley Reservoir for 2 hours ...more and weren't disappointed. We landed a 17 inch Rainbow, an 18 inch Laker and my first ever Tiger Trout. Just shy of 16 inches he was released back to grow bigger.

      Awesome tiger. Def on my bucket list
    3. Looks like a Spanish Mackerel pattern to me
    4. That is the craziest tiger I’ve seen! Looks like a rainbow brook hybrid rather than a brown brook hybrid!

  3. Please to all my fishing buddies and friends. I am begging for help. My younger brother had his 2nd stroke. He can not walk can not talk. I took 4 days off from ...more my busy schedule to drive to Florida and build him a ramp so he can get in and out of his house. His wife only makes 10 bucks an hour. They're about to be homeless because disability is taking their sweet role time. My brother has worked his butt of all of his life. Never used alcohol, drugs or even cigarettes. Diabetes is killing him slowly. So please is you could spare $10 or $20, we would appreciate it. If you can afford more that's even better. I put my bills aside and don't care about my credit score to build his ramp.

  4. I'm thinking this is caused by all of the fertilizers and pesticides used by the residents and farmers throughout our state. It's pretty sad what we are ...more doing to our lakes and waterways. Both fresh and salt.

    Blue/Green Toxic Algae with a Camera

    1. Chad M 0
      thats too bad...you would think after it being on the news they would at least make an attempt.
    2. They are well aware about it Chad. But do nothing about it. It was all over the news.
    3. Chad M 0
      show that picture to your local epa or Dnr official. it is toxic to some specific wildlife, such as frogs . it can contaminate drinking water and is also harmful ...more to pets, in particular to dogs . they’re steps that can be put in place to reduce this and help kill the algae. it also uses up a great deal of the oxygen in the water. just a thought.
    4. Stupid people like green lawns. I think the Vegans are to blame.

  6. A day off from work is a good day to go fishing. Landed over 50 of these guys from 12 to 15 inches. The toxic blue/green algae seems to have put a damper on the ...more fish too.

    4. Derek Stitt 0
      That's awesome Arthur!! what a giant!
    5. The hardest part was not setting the hook. Especially for Tim, he lost quite a few. He did catch a nice Snakehead though it got off as we were trying to get the ...more hook out
    6. I need to try some Florida bass fishing or California
    7. Robert Coleman 0
      Yeah, there's nothing to it Arty! You just throw it out there and let it sit till the "Big Girl" eats it,.... right???πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜³ There is soooooooooo ...more much more to it than that, as you saw! Morris also taught me new ways to fish the live bait too bud! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
    8. It is Dennis, I thought I knew everything about live bait fish. Captain Morris taught myself and my son a few things and different techniques with live bait.
    9. Let them try with artificial. They won’t have the success rate as with live bait. My old personal best was 8 lbs 9 oz caught in NJ on a fly I tied myself. It was ...more trolled using a Deckarm which was invented by a good friend of mine.

    13. yeah .. Live bait is too easy!!! no skill required,
    14. Live bait doesn't count hahaha.πŸ˜€
    15. so captain... i guess that means, technically, approximately 15-20% of robert's pb bass size is mine (referral fee) so if we take that away from his and add ...more it to mine, who has the bigger fish?

  8. I finally had a small break from work and what a better way to take advantage of fishing with one of the best Captains I know. Captain Morris Campbell did not disappoint. ...more We went through 7 dozen large shiners and were sorry we didn’t buy more. This 11 1/2 pounder is my new personal best and a memory I will never forget. My son Tim was with us and missed a few. This is also my first double digit bass. Thanks again to Captain Morris and his years of experience.

I am a Fishaholic, I go crazy if I can't fish. My favorite fish are anything that swims and puts up a good fight.
