Fishing with Dorothy

  October 14 & 16, 2022.    My dear friend Dorothy Zinky can still cast a shooting head at 92.  We got a rare chance to fish together this past weekend and despite my pessimism about the forebay after last weeks big zero day,   we decided to scout around and see if maybe things had…

Tapioca Disease in Bering Sea Coho

One of the great things about my annual trip to the Aleutian Islands is bringing back Roe and Fish.  The camp has a full size Freezer and given the huge yields of fish on the river,  we are allowed to bring home some fish.    I enjoy processing salmon roe and filleting salmon,  perhaps it’s …

Aleutian Coho Paradise 2022

MORE VIDS TO COME…… September 7-14 2022   The Sapsuk never disappoints and is why it remains one of my favorite annual trips. The main reason I love this trip so much are the regulars I fish with once a year.   Preacher Mike, Jerry and Diana, Charlie, Kirk  and Mark Won.  Mark and Kirk couldn’t make…

Alberta 2022

About a year ago August,  I got an email from my favorite rocker Paul Kype – famous Fishing Guide and Headliner in the band Texas Flood – of a beautiful Rainbow Trout.   I recognized the silver beauty as a classic St Mary’s River rainbow.  It had a small head,  girthy body and perfect pink fins. …

Garmin LVS34 Malfunction

A week before I left for Cuba,  I had a day on the lake when thing just go south.   The fishing on the forebay was slow but as the afternoon wore on,  my Panoptix Live view LV34 system started to malfunction around 2:00pm.    For some reason I started to get black triangles on the…

Summer Striper Slow Down

Hoping for a surface action repeat from two days ago,  I timed myself to be on the lake when the wind switched hoping to locate those big schools of Surface Stripers in the glassy water.    I didn’t see any schools today.  I couldn’t “wish them”  up as hard as I tried.    Lots of…

TwoFer – Lake and Forebay

Friday Jan 8, 2022   It’s always my hope when I set out to fish the lake or forebay to have a unique experience.  This morning,  I left the house not that optimistic that the day would be good.  As I pulled up to the Dinosaur Point ramp,  I could see the whitecaps in the bay…

Synabego – Boats, Tubes and Pontoons

One of the reasons I bought the 4wd Mercedes Sprinter  Van Conversion was so that I could tow a 3500 lb boat and still camp.   The other major reason I bought the Revel 4×4 is that I could park the 19 foot van in a regular parking space.    The latter is less achievable with a…

Starlink on the Revel

At the time it was…

American Independence Day at the Lake

July 4th needs to be celebrated. Each citizen and patriot in there own way needs to rejoice the day that the Declaration of Independence  was adopted and the United States officially became the greatest framework for Freedom, Morality and Justice ever created by man.   I celebrated the 4th of July by fly fishing San Luis…
