2013-04-18 13:20:07

Michigan Technological University Bear hunters will tell you that a good way to attract a bear is to put out bait. And in 10 states, including Michigan and Wisconsin, that's perfectly legal. Hunting dogs are another useful technique in the bear-hunter's toolkit, and 17 states say that's just fine. But who else likes bear bait? Gray wolves, that's who. And wolves that are feeling territorial about a bear bait stash can–and sometimes do–kill hunting dogs released at the bait...

By Capt. Jim Johnson The cooler-than-normal water temperatures are once again the topic of conversation amongst our local anglers. The dreaded thermacline has once again lowered our water temperatures almost 10 degrees below what the temperature should be this time of year. The lower water temperatures at the inshore offshore reefs have all but shut down the slow trolling with live bait. If you are wanting to make the trip to the inshore reefs, I would plan on bottom fishing. The snapper...

By Robert L. Brodie, The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss. Aug. 3--For any angler, it's not hard to realize just how unbearable the summer heat can be. When the wind dies out its brutal, and getting to the fishing grounds extremely early, or late in the afternoon, can deliver a bit of relief. However, by fishing on or near the bottom can increase the bite ratio well into the heat of day, a time when many fish will hunker close to the cooler depths. Last week, much time was spent fishing near...

By Al Jones, The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss. Jul. 27--The recent Midwest flood continues to dampen the South Mississippi fishing report, but things are getting better. Toss in Hurricane Dolly making landfall near the Texas/Mexico border, and things should continue to improve through Labor Day. Before Dolly and the arrival of flood waters through the Mississippi River, speckled trout were plentiful from the Louisiana Marsh through Chandeleur Island as well as Cat Island. Chandeleur,...

By C. Douglas Nielsen In the fishing tackle industry, Las Vegas resident Ken Whiting is known as the "Wizard of Rods." His rod designs have dominated the competition in recent years, and during the 2007 International Convention of Allied Sportsfishing Trades (ICAST), Whiting won top honors in both the freshwater and saltwater categories, as well as the overall "Best of Show" award with fishing rods made from carrot fibers that were produced by e21 Fishing.

By Bob Frye, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Jul. 13--IF YOU FISH -- be it with bait, flies or lures -- chances are you got your start with a nightcrawler or red worm floating under one of those round red and white bobbers. Well, now there's a cooler designed to mimic that simple piece of gear. The "Big Bobber Floating Cooler" looks just like an oversized bobber, but at 15-inches wide, 15-inches tall, and 15-inches deep, it holds 12 cans of soda or beer. It's insulated, too, so you can pack...

By Bill Burton "No guts, no glory," says Mike Gombert of Queens Landing at Kent Island. But he and his two partners wanted a black drum badly, badly enough that they made, with visibility only at about 60 feet, the long run from the Magothy to the Stone Rock off Tilghman Island. Fuel costs, snotty weather, bumpy seas or poor visibility, those on the chase for drum care not; the spawning run is short and the fish certainly not in abundance. It's a now or never thing; snooze and you lose....
