How To Find Fish In Transition with Electronics

Finding Fish In Transition from The Fishing Wire How experts use Humminbird technologies to put the bead on fall and winter fish Eufaula, AL - Typically, as fall arrives, many of us head for the tree stand or blind, turning our attention to birds and bucks.

Vahrenberg verifies the presence of a kicker fish on the tree identified with 360 Imaging. Here's how a handful of Read more [...]

Is January A Good Time To Scout For Deer and Prepare for Next Season?

Walter Gary called last week from Berry's Sporting Goods to remind me this is an excellent time to scout for deer and get prepared for next season. That may seem strange since deer season just ended and won't open again for almost ten months, but preparing now can help you get your deer, and insure it is a quality deer, next year. The deer have had almost a month to calm down since season ended. They have returned to their normal patterns for this time of year. This weekend would be an excellent Read more [...]

Funds for Gulf of Mexico Restoration

The BP Windfall--Funds for Gulf Restoration By Frank Sargeant, Editor from The Fishing Wire In one of the more bizarre turns of events in environmental history, the calamitous BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico may turn out to have been historically a good thing for many portions of the shores of this American sea. While the enormous outpouring of oil, variously estimated at up to 4.7 million barrels (about 200 million gallons over 87 days), was the greatest manmade environmental disaster Read more [...]

Global Positioning Systems – GPS – Has Come A Long Way!

This was written about GPS - Global Positioning System - hand held units in early 1997 - these units still do the same job, but they have come a long way since then. I got an amazing toy for Christmas. It is a small device called a Global Positioning Satellite - GPS for short. My GPS is about the size of a TV remote control. It takes readings from satellites and tells you exactly where you are. The GPS has a small screen where you can view different functions. You can record the location Read more [...]

Lake Guntersville Fishing Report from Captain Mike Gerry

Lake Guntersville Fishing Report Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 10/26/14 Without question the fishing is turning more like the fall bite we have been accustomed to on Lake Guntersville; from top water to schooling it is more prevalent than ever. The key is to find the schooling activity or be able to hear the bream sucking bugs off the top of the mats. When you found either one of these keys you had a blast and fishing turned to catching with great results. As always is the case it’s Read more [...]

Should My Taxes Pay For Those Trying To Win The Darwin Award?

This Week's Lead Candidate for the Darwin Award By Frank Sargeant, Editor from The Fishing Wire My personal candidate for this week's Darwin Award, given to those who are kind enough to attempt removing themselves from the gene pool to avoid transmitting their aberrations to offspring, goes to Iranian-born U.S. citizen Reza Baluchi, who tried to "walk" to Bermuda from South Florida in what looked very much like an oversized vinyl beach ball, in an attempt to "spread a message of world unity." He Read more [...]

How Is Shooting Pen Raised Quail Different from Hunting Wild Birds?

A few years ago I did something I had not done for 30 years. And unlike last April when I went horseback riding for the first time in 30 years - and fell off! - this experience did not hurt a bit. I won a half-day quail hunt at Barksdale Bobwhite Plantation near Cochran. Although I had not shot at a quail since I was 16 years old, many of those old memories of quail hunts with my father are still strong. With great anticipation of the upcoming hunt, I drove to Barksdale Saturday morning. Read more [...]

Political Jokes

These political jokes are funny, I don't care who you are or who you support. Of course the names can be changed on any of them to your suiting! The best description of Obamacare so far: Remember when Nancy Pelosi said: "We have to pass it, to find out what's in it." A physician called into a radio show and said: "That's the definition of a stool sample". A lesson in irony: The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing Read more [...]
