Fishing The Ocean From Shore - Rock Fishing Fro...
Dec 26 2012 Fishing for rock fish from shore is a great way to enjoy a day of fishing at the ocean with very little expense or hassle. Rock fishing from shore usually will yield you a good meal or two of fine tasting fresh fish and some days your shore fishing efforts will amaze you! I have gone fishing for rock fish from the shore one day and caught my limit and gone the next day and caught four. But, seldom has there been a day when my shorefishing efforts didn’t pay off enough for at least dinner. You can try fishing from beaches, but don’t expect much. Rockfishing is where most of the fish are caught except for perch most of the time. The best bait for catching rock fish is also the free kind. We will discuss what kind of bait to use for fishing from the shore of the ocean for rock fish a little later along with where to fish for rock fish from the shore. Also, make sure you read this killer article on catching rock fish and eels with a "poke pole"!

My Poor Ol' Okie Gramma Loved To Fish!...
Dec 28 2012 My gramma loved to fish. Well she did until she died. She was 95 years old when she passed. Gramps was long gone. Something about a fish bone being caught in his throat and gramma not having corn bread on the table that day to swish it out. At least that’s what grampa's girlfriend always claimed. Her favorite fishing was always perch and bluegill fishing with a cane pole (which was all grampa could afford for her).

Salmon Fishing In The Sacramento and Feather Ri...
Dec 29 2012 Fishing for salmon on the Sacramento River in northern California is a fishing hobby that is popular among many of the state’s fishermen. Catching salmon in the Sacramento River, or it tributaries such as the Feather River, is a fall activity with the season running usually from the middle of August until the middle of December. How to catch salmon in the Sacramento River depends on whether you have a boat or not, for the most part, as well as what type of salmon fishing you enjoy. For instance, my brother likes casting a Mepps lure and letting it “roll” on the gravel on the bottom, my dad was old and he liked sitting behind a flatfish in a boat or off the bank, and I like back trolling flat fish, jigging, and I really enjoy casting a Glo-bug off of the shore using a method my friends and I call “long-lining”. Any of the below is a good way to catch salmon in the Sacramento River.
How to Dig Clams, Clam Digging Tips, Best Way T...
Apr 13 2013 Learning how to dig for clams is pretty simple. Clam digging for horseneck clams, digging for Washington clams, digging soft shell clams, and digging for geoduck clams is very similar. Learning to dig for clams of these varieties is the types of clam digging discussed in this clam digging article. Digging cockle clams and razor clams is done a little different as they live more on the open gravely and sandy beaches, while horse neck clams, geoduck clams, Washington clams, and soft-shell clams are more in the backwater mud flats in bays along the ocean. Digging clams is fun for the whole family and another great thing to do if you are at the ocean abalone diving or fishing. Learning how to dig clams just takes a little practice at finding clams to dig and the right tools, such as a clam pump that you can build yourself, and learning the best way to dig clams. This article on how to dig horseneck clams, and how to dig clams found in the same area as horsenecks, should give you a good clam digging start. If you like clams, you probably would like mussels as well (or want them as bait if your are fishing from the shore) so don't miss the article here on getting mussels.
Using A Trailer Hook When Trolling - How to use...
Dec 29 2012 Using a trailer hook when trolling with night crawlers and using a trailer hook when trolling with minnows is done the same way, at least it is when I use a trailer hook for trolling. In either case, I do not attach the trailer hook to the minnow or nightcrawler. I let it freely dangle just at or behind the end of the minnow or nightcrawler and the movement through the water while trolling takes it back and even makes it have a little action to attract the fish. My dad taught me howto use a trailer hook for trolling with minnows and night crawlers and he always insisted that using a trailer hook that is hooked through the tail of the minnow or worm killed the action of both the bait and the trailer hook. He was one of the best fishermen that ever crapped behind two shoes, or at least that’s what he told me, and he caught a lot of fish trolling so I have to just go with it! Some days we would go trolling with minnows in Lake Oroville in northern California and come back with limits of German Browns, rainbows, and salmon between 2 and 8 pounds. Of those, we would catch 80% of them using his method of using a trailer hook for trolling so who can argue!

Shad Fishing, How To Shad Fish and Shad Fishing...
Apr 22 2013 Shad fishing in the late spring on ultra-light equipment has to be one of the most enjoyable fishing experiences out there. The shad are not that big, usually between about a pound and a half to five pounds, but they fight like they are three times their size! They catch the current with their wide bodies like a schooner captures the wind and your drag has better be set right or you will be up for a re-rig. We all know how those little wide-bodied bluegill fight and shad are like a giant bluegill! The best thing is that a lot of days you catch several per hour and every one is a challenge. By the end of a good shad fishing day, your you-know-what is kicked and your arm is tired and cramped. Of course, you can’t wait to do it all over again the next day! This Picture is of me with the biggest shad out of the thousands I have caught in my life and it is a true lunker! I wish I would have weighed it now as it may have been close to a record.
