Crappie Fishing Tips

I realize that the title of this post may be a little misleading, but honestly these fishing tips are are not that “Crappie”. After sunfish Crappie would probably be the second best fish for beginners to start fishing for. They grow a little larger and offer a little more substantial fight than the average Bluegill. […]

How to Catch Menhaden

Have you ever seen a flock of sparrows flying in unison. They all seem to move so well together you would swear it almost looks like a singular organism. Menhaden swim in much the same manner, all bundled up close to one another and moving in harmony with each other.  They find strength in numbers and […]

Muskie Fishing Tips

I realize that Muskies are probably not the best fish for fishing beginners, but I figured some new anglers want to start off with a challenge or feel as if they have reached a skill level where they want to put their previous experiences to the test. In any case Muskie fishing offers many challenges […]

Where Do I Get My 2011 Fishing License

Beginners sometime grumble about having to purchase a fishing license, but it is […]

Perch Fishing Tips

Do you feel as if you have graduated from catching Bluegills or Sunfish?  Then a good species to target next would be the Yellow Perch.  Perch are great to fish for if you are a novice angler as they are relatively easy to catch.   They generally offer fast fishing action in many conditions. You need to have […]

Tautog Fishing Tips

If I were to submit a fish into a beauty contest, it would NOT be a Tautog.  They are by far one of the most unattractive looking fish, but very good tasting. Their crooked teeth, fat lips and high forehead make them look like a star wars character.  Many anglers express great frustration both trying to […]

Brook Trout Fishing

Have you ever seen an oil painting or photo of the woods of new hampshire with a beatiful slow moving  clear blue river running through it.  The kind of tranquel river that is calming to the soul and helps you to forget about all the anxieties of your life.  The sound of the slow moving […]

How to Catch Salmon

Get ready for a show.  Salmon are known to put on quite the acrobatic display once on the line.  They also offer a very aggressive fight.  Salmon are very similar to trout in regards to fishing methods and often times trout are caught directly alongside trout.  Many stocked ponds have species of trout and salmon […]

How to catch catfish

The great thing about catfish fishing is that catfish are everywhere.  The second great thing about catfish fishing is that catfish can grow very large.  Some of the largest catfish caught have weighed over 200lbs.  The demographics of catfish and thier large size make them a very popular sports-fish all over the world.  Their are a […]

How to Catch Flounder

 I have many fond memories of flounder fishing on my fathers boat.  Flounder fishing is always a very fun way to catch a meal.  It is not as fast action as catching Bluefish and does not have the same challenges of finding stripers.  Flounder always seem to be in a consistant location and the catch […]
