By Sam Powell, Tulsa World, Okla. Jul. 24--Summer dog days weather is here, but Oklahoma anglers continue to catch lake-record fish. Note, once again, that these are records just for certain lakes, not a state record. Since the Wildlife Department created this new lake-record program last spring, it has met with wide acceptance by state anglers, and the number of fish being entered into the program has continued to grow. The noodlers finally got in the record book. Lake Thunderbird, a...

By Craig Hill, The News Tribune, Tacoma, Wash. Jul. 23--The North Puget Sound seems to be the place to go this week if you are looking to catch salmon, said Mike Chamberlain of Ted's Sports Center near Lynnwood. While South Sound marinas are reporting slow action, the fishing has been solid in marine areas 9 (Admiralty Inlet) and 10 (Seattle and Bremerton). "Areas 9 and 10 are the highlights right now," Chamberlain said. "But I'd say the fishing has only been fair." Chamberlain says...

By Brent Frazee, The Kansas City Star, Mo. Jul. 20--Catch of the week Joni Deweerdt of Lathrop, Mo., was trying to catch bass when she tossed a plastic worm into a private lake at the Lathrop Lake and Forest Club. And she thought she had quite a fish when something hit her bait and put up a fight. But she wasn't prepared for what eventually surfaced: an 18-inch, 3-pound crappie. It was the biggest crappie anyone at the private club had seen for years, and it gave Joni bragging...

WASKISH, Minn. _ Walleye action was beginning to slow from the torrid pace anglers had experienced since the May 10 fishing opener, but Upper Red Lake still was kicking out fish at a pretty good clip for late June, Tyler Brasel said. That would turn out to be an understatement. A fishing guide on Upper Red Lake, Brasel, 22, would rank among the most fanatical anglers in northern Minnesota if such a category existed. He and his parents, Steve and Tammy Brasel, pulled stakes from their home...

By Michael Pearce, The Wichita Eagle, Kan. Jul. 13--Ranging from desolate stock ponds to sculpted sand pits winding between seven-figure homes, Kansas' 100,000-plus private waters offer some good fishing. But they could be giving us much more. "I doubt we get 25 percent of the potential out of our ponds," said Leonard Jirak, a Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks fisheries biologist. "They can be managed and improved like anything else." Though he manages some huge reservoirs,...

By John Nolan, The Wisconsin State Journal Jul. 12--Justin Zurbuchen has a pretty good feel for finding fish on nearby Lake Mendota. The 17-year-old from Waunakee recently pulled in an 18-inch largemouth bass and routinely hauls in crappies and bluegills. The diverse fishery, located just a few miles from his home, covers 9,842 square acres and features just about everything an angler could want -- bluegill, large and smallmouth bass, muskellunge, northern pike and walleye, among...

By Scott Richardson, The Pantagraph, Bloomington, Ill. Jul. 4--Fishing guide Paul Center of Angling Adventures had some special clients recently, his wife and daughter, when the family from Normal headed north to Snowbank Lake at the entrance to Boundary Waters, Minn. They've been going for 17 years. "Most people come there as a jumping-off point to go into the Boundary Waters. It's the last lake you can have a motor on right on the Canadian border," he said. They spent most of their...

By Bob Frye Bigger is better. Size does matter. It's great to live large. We've been hearing those sayings for years. But do anglers think that way when it comes to their panfish? The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is trying to figure that out. The commission instituted "panfish enhancement" regulations on 18 waters around the commonwealth in 2000. The rules -- which lowered creel limits and raised the minimum size for some panfish -- are designed to keep panfish in the water...

By Margo Sullivan, The Eagle-Tribune, North Andover, Mass. Jun. 25--KINGSTON -- A fish count in Powwow Pond showed this winter's toll on bass was worse than originally feared, according to Ben Nugent, fisheries biologist with the state Fish and Game Department. He conducted an electro-fishing survey Sunday night and found only 10 bass in the pond. "I was pretty surprised," Nugent said. He estimated the survey should have turned up 60 bass "at a minimum." He said his next step will be...
