Mike Howe: Howe's Fishing

Spring fishing is just around the corner

March 11, 2015 at 4:39 pm

I don’t mind March coming in like a lamb … even if it goes out like a lion. Right now my mind is flooded with potential trips I want to squeeze in when the ice starts going off. Not that I am done ice fishing yet, but that magic time every...

Excuse me, do you have the MONTH? Last I checked, it was mid-February, but this warm, rainy weather really has me thinking I RipVan Winkled my way right into mid-March. Honestly, I still have way too much ice fishing to do, with two more P...

“Ice Ice Baby!” That song has been in my head for two weeks now, from the day I saw my first frozen pond of this season in North Dakota. And the upsurge of traffic on social media has certainly confirmed that first ice is here in many par...

Lures, lore abundant at a good old fishing store

November 05, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Rare kokanee still reach Flathead Lake
