Winterizing your boat

October 18, 2018 at 10:58 am

Unless you are a hardcore, all-season angler that uses your boat any chance you can get, it is time to think about putting her away for the winter. It is real easy to get distracted now with hunting seasons looming and the “I’ll get to tha...

The best is yet to come

September 20, 2018 at 3:00 am

I get pretty darn excited about fall fishing. I mean, when it comes to all the things that I really enjoy about my personal fishing time, the next six week or so is when it really all comes together for me. As a guide and outfitter, almost...

Fall fishing is here

September 06, 2018 at 3:00 am

September has arrived with a feeling more like October, at least when it comes to the cool mornings and the falling water temperatures on many local lakes. I look forward to September almost more than any other month as a sportsman in Mont...

Lake Superior whitefish

July 17, 2018 at 3:24 pm

They’re baaaack…Lake Superior whitefish that is. This hard fighting, extremely tasty fish that are non-native to Flathead Lake, yet revered by so many, are starting to show up in isolated pockets on Flathead Lake. Just like last year, (but...

Warm weather, hot fishing

May 24, 2018 at 3:00 am

In my last column, I was focused on the annual opening of rivers and streams fisheries, and as I predicted, it was pretty much a non-issue. With the high, brown runoff plaguing most of the local waters, most anglers stuck to the lakes and ...

October 13, 2016 at 4:00 am

It’s mid-October and we have snow on the ground, lows in the 20s for the last couple of nights and a forecast that looks like we face more of the same. Sounds like it’s time for me to go do a little Florida Keys fishing. But first, a littl...

Fall is a good time to get ready for ice fishing

September 29, 2016 at 4:00 am

I have taken up my bow again after a 12-year hiatus and have been really enjoying this fall weather. Is there anything better than chasing rutting elk in Montana in September? Maybe chasing fish on the hardwater? In fact, looking at next we...

Fishing flourishes as autumn weather arrives

September 14, 2016 at 3:55 pm

I have fallen for fall. September has always been my favorite month, but for the last three to four years, there hasn’t been much difference between August and September — but not this year. Cool, even cold temperatures have started the tr...

It’s a full moon: fear or fever?

August 17, 2016 at 12:25 pm

Like many anglers, I am always working on that “edge,” where I am in a constant state of anticipation of the next “killer day” of fishing. Conversely, I am always dreading that next day when you just can’t catch a fish to save your life. M...

COLUMN: Imitate a perch to get whitefish

August 04, 2016 at 7:00 am

It’s been almost 10 years since the last great year for limits of whitefish on Flathead Lake. There are some fish being caught out on Flathead, in fact in lots of places, just not the numbers we grew so used to during the heyday of the grea...
