    Mike Carey's Blog
    Welcome to Mike's Fishing Blog, the culmination of a ten year vision for this web site. I fish for anything that swims - put a pole in my hand and I'm there!
    Yes, "There Will Be Blood". Join Aaron, Andrew, and myself as we enjoy the quality fishery that is Rufus Woods. Our stay at Cabin By The River was excellent! Everything you could ask for in a secluded location - beautiful scenery, good boat launch, quick run to the pens - and most important a cabin which was clean and comfortable, with everything a group of anglers or hunters could ask for. I know I'll be back! Check them out at

    Loui I will PM you to see which ones you think might work. I could also put them onto a jig. My thoughts would be that I might have to make them smaller.

    Hey Toni, some folks would have thought I was just a spastic ADHDer who keeps his "Rabbit's Foot" around his neck (just joking, I actually keep it in my pocket), And Mike is correct. On the bow is a MinnKota with the co-pilot option. It is a great option, but one of the things you have to get used to is the unit doesn't respond as quickly as the foot controlled models that aren't electronic. That means you have to always be planning your moves before you need to change, but I get excited over every fish on, just like it was my first, so I tend to forget that small detail. Toni, when you do get the chance to fish RW, be sure to bring some of your flies to catch some of the RW Tripps.

    I'm guessing that is a remote for the trolling motor all right. Sweet set up. They did well on what was a pretty tough day fishing.

    This was great! It is one of the places I would like to fish. Right up there with Alaska. It was nice to see blufin loui who helped me with fly tying. Did you see him using something around his neck to control the boat. Does Aaron have one of those?
    Any way, great video. That cabin looks special.

    Nice vid of the Cabin by the River. Looks like a great place to stay, neat, clean, and comfortable looking accommodations. Would be a great base to fish the Rufus Woods. Sure glad you were able to capture your fish on vid. Makes great braggin material.
    Best of luck on your future adventures. Looks like I need to hone up on my netting skills after watching the vid LOL.
    Hope you guys get to catch some of these fatboys again soon.

    Great video guys! Will have to run to RW one of these days soon. Accommodations look nice too!
