The more I fish the more I realize what I’m really looking for is change. That helps me find fish every time I’m on the water. It’s the basis of everything I do. Bass always relate to differences. That means we should too.
What Sandy did to us is beyond tragic. No thought about fishing compares to the hurt and pain of my neighbors or the other residents up here. The loss of life and property will never be made right by whatever happens to our bass populations.
This is Becky. You’re stuck with me this week. Mike is out helping others with their storm damage, and I have to say I’m thankful for that. He doesn’t have to help with our storm damage. Our prayers were answered.
I’ve fished Oneida for almost 20 years. I’ve never seen it fish as tough as it did in practice this year. I was caught off-guard.
This was a really exciting event for me. I love to fish rivers and I love to fish up north. We were fishing both.
When the timber is everywhere, the fish aren’t relating to it like they do to a few stickups. Saying they’re on the wood is like saying they’re in the water. It’s of no help whatsoever.
