Topwater Goodness

July has flown by but for good reason.  I have been on the water 17 days this month and more to go.  Fishing has been up and down and a lot of thats due to the weather.  High barometric pressure seems to be the culprit.  I have never really paid much attention to the pressure [...]

Popping Into July

Finished the month of June on Virginia's best smallmouth bass rivers.  The James, Staunton, and Maury rivers fished well when they weren't high and dirty.   Its been a struggle to stay on the water last month but luckily between those rivers I found fishable water. I had a few anglers get their personal best [...]

Summer Time

We are a couple days from the official start of Summer.  It has been a month since my last blog post and I apologize for slacking off.  It was a very wet Spring and I had to cancel 25 trips the past two months.  Weather has been good for the past couple weeks now and [...]

May Days

It has been a mixed species bag this month.  Striped bass fishing in Weldon, NC is still going strong.  The numbers of stripers is incredible to see each year this run happens.  A lot of fish in the 15-20" range but we did break through all the males and got a healthy female in the [...]

High and Lows

Its been a interesting Spring to say the least.  Two large rain fronts a week apart last month kept me sidelined from the striped bass run on the Staunton River.  The rain didn't only affect the Staunton, it had creeks, rivers, branches, tribs, you name it busting at the seams all over the state of [...]

The Groundhog was Right

Well Punxsutawney Phil wasn't joking when he didn't see his shadow.  The past two weeks has felt like March not April.  Fished in the snow two days last week.  It finally seems like Spring has finally sprung and plans to stick around this time.  Temps in the 70's and 80's the past few days. The [...]

March Browns

Spring is finally here even though it has felt like January the past two weeks.  A couple snowstorms and cold temps have kept the water temps cold.  Today reached 74 degrees so I'm hoping the temps below 50 are done.  Looking forward to green grass, leaves, and flowers from here on out. Trout fishing has [...]

One to Remember

In the world of musky fishing, musky hold all the cards.  They decide who is going to be a hero or a zero. Some clients catch one on their first try, others grind it out till it happens and I believe a lot just give it up.  Musky fly fishing is not for everyone and [...]

Pre Spawn Bite

Virginia went from drought to flood in a snap.  Rain from earlier this month really helped the remaining pre spawn bite for musky.  With flows higher and water clarity being green, musky do not have as much time to think about wether to eat or not.  Over the past five guided trips we have had [...]
