When the bite is on, the fish can make you look like a genius.  All the finest tackle, latest techniques, and spiffy duds are worth the proverbial hill of beans if the fish don't open their lips.  Today, though, the smallies popped their chops with...

Fishing the Muskegon river  with poppers for small mouth bass is always exciting, this one took me all around the boat and then headed down stream before we were able to land it. Thanks Gary for a great job on the net. Capt. Don Graham...

Today Al and I spent the day popper fishing for small mouth bass on the Muskegon river, the first bass Al hooked put on a spectacular aerial show, however I wasn't quick enough to get a photo of the bass in mid air. Thanks Al for...

A little easier please?

Smallmouth fishing the last couple days for me has been challenging. Factor in the higher than normal water flows, temperamental fish, and beginner clients, it has made for some long days on the water.  Beginner fly fisherman always bring with them challenges that only exist...

Fishing today with brothers Jim, Max and Rob Newell, it started out real slow fishing poppers, so we switched over to streamers and still no fish, until this afternoon the popper action picked up with everybody hooking fish. We had a great time on the water...

Gotta earn those Atlantics

Extremely warm weather has effected the Atlantic salmon fishing in the Soo just like it has effected the trout fishing in many other areas. Water temperature in the St. Mary's River is running nearly 10 degrees above normal from my year to year experiences. Morning...

With a cardiologist and a mortgage broker in my boat today, I figured I had every base covered.   If I hyperventilated over errant casts or a Big Bertha lost or needed a 30 year fixed mortgage to assuage any angst I might have accumulated...

Hot Weather Smallmouth

The 2nd and 3rd day of fishing with Tom and Judy required us to endure some pretty hot summer weather. Day-to-day differences in behavior of the smallmouth kept us on our toes as well. Typically, the smallies can always be found on the woody structures...

First Muskegon River smallmouth bass trip of the year today with bud and fellow RiverQuest guide Don Graham.  Lots of fun, though, the bite started off tough.  The water was significantly off-color from recent rain, and the river was choc-full of minnows—literally thousands of them.  ...
