The clouds hung over the tree-covered hills but broken patches of blue sky gave the promise of a good day to come. The water was a glassy calm as our boat accelerated away from the dock toward our off shore fishing grounds.

If it looks good and moves slowly enough, something will eventually try to gum it to death.” Thus Field & Stream magazine introduced America to the idea of fly-fishing for carp 10 years ago. The Golden Bonefish Carp – long considered an invasive trash fish and the subject of mockery – st...

Its’ hard to beat enjoying a summer’s day out on Puget Sound. With the recent conflicts and confusion over salmon season’s and a lack of setting rules for fisheries this past spring I got to thinking about other options besides salmon.

Different Plastic Crawfish for Different Situations
Different Plastic Crawfish for Different Situations
Author: Ben Team for AnglersClub.com
Posted: 6/10/2017
I was fishing for a few years before I tried out my first plastic crawfish. Once I did, I felt stupid for not doing so sooner. They catch bass. Period. Exclamation point! A lot of anglers go craw-wild in the spring, but then forget about them for the rest of the year. This is a mistake, as they remain productive throughout the year. They may not be the best lure for the dead of winter or while ...

Author: Denis Peirce
Posted: 6/10/2017
The land locked king salmon fishery in Lake Oroville has been a tough one to figure out. They are a cold water fish that stays down deep for most of the season. Shore based anglers rarely can reach them and boat fishermen have a tough time finding the correct combination of depth, speed and lure. The story of the cold water fishery in Lake Oroville goes back to the completion of the dam in the ...
