  1. Even though there are no official celebrations because of the Covid-19 please take some time today and remember those that gave so much for are great country!
  2. John contact the guys at Rocktown Adventures they definitely will be able to help you out with options. The Jackson Kayaks Bite FD is a great peddle drive kayak but it is just a bit over $2000 the thing to think about with a peddle is weight. I believe the Bite FD is over 90 lbs. Talk to either Kevin or Travis at Rocktown.
  3. Chris no not really. I am using very light jigs. The hair jigs are 1/16 th ond 3/32 nd and using 1/15 th with the Ned Rig. I am fishing current and with the light jigs heads and keeping my rod up high with some very easy rod twitches the jigs skips along pretty well. It is a technique that takes some practice and you need to pay attention. Paying attention is very important with the colder water temps now takes are very light and usually just notice weight on the line . Any questions just let me know and I do my best to answer them.

  4. I have been getting out on my small water areas this spring. I am able to walk in to a fair amount of spots but hope to be out on the kayak this week. I thought I would share what I have been throwing with some success. Baits of choice have been the Ned Rig and hairjigs . In the photo are 4 of the most productive ones. A is the Ned Rig in Greenpumkin Goby with a chartreuse head 1/15 th oz. B is a hairjig that my friend Jimmy makes for me in a custom color to match the Greenpumkin Goby combination Ned Rig jig is 3/32nd oz. C is Fur Tail jig using coyote hair also tied by my friend Jimmy again jig is 3/32nd oz. And D is another Fur Tail jig using Raccoon hair and also 3/32 nd oz. Technique I use is throw up stream and let the current do all the work. I just try to keep slack out of line as most takes are very soft and usually just feel weight. Getting out fishing can be good for the body and mind just be safe!
  5. For anyone interested in trying these out I have donated some for the Blowout raffles. I have had great success with these on rivers in rocky areas.

  8. I just read on Facebook that Michigan has issued the permits for the Back Forty Mine by the Menomonee River. This is very bad!
  9. Welcome and nice job with the Ned Rig!
  10. The Kishwaukee Brutus Hunter is that something you would drink by the Kilbuck Terry? LOL!
  11. Are the fish starting to bed in that stretch of the river? Fished a river last Sunday a there were smallies on beds!
  12. Malone makes some great products for transporting kayaks!
  13. I throw it in rock all the time. You lose a few but that's the risk you take to catch fish. You need to pay attention to where you are putting it. If it is real rocky you need to keep your rod tip up! I will even use a 1/20th jig head on occasion
  14. We did not catch a fish in our group. Our float did not start out well at all. Pour Mike and Jude both flipped the kayaks with in 100 yards of our put in. John and I finished the day with nothing to show for our efforts. I tried the Ned Rig , jerk baits and paddle tail swim jigs. First time shut out on the Kish!
  15. Mike Gillig will also be there he let me know last night.
  16. I tried signing out and sign back in and it is still blank!
  17. This article was written in Wisconsin but we here in Illinois can still contact our representatives and voice our concerns also!
  18. Jude I did not see it on the calendar either but it was in the digital newsletter. Maybe it's is fake news!
  19. Hope this next little storm does not bring to much rain!
  20. Paul I plan on being there and Norm Perkins may also join use. Not positive on Norm but possibly.
  21. Don't forget to consider how your going to use the kayak. What types of water you going to fish. You going to do any trips that you will be camping. All things that need to be thought about. Good luck and try to try out some before you decide on what you get.
  22. Kevin talk to the guys at Rocktown Adventures they could set up some demos for you to try!
