Nebraska pike play hard to get

Here’s Wayne Baranczyk with a northern pike taken during the club’s north central Nebraska fishing trip this past weekend. Unfortunately it was the ONLY fish taken. Not sure what happened, but at least no one got bitten.

OK Carter Lake Wednesday

Tom, Don, Dennis and yours truly are planning to pester the Carter Lake trout population starting about 10 a.m. Thursday, not Wednesday as originally scheduled. Wind and other weather permitting (and we’re pretty tough), we’ll meet near the north boat ramp. This is open water fishing at its finest, so leave your augers at home.

Visger doing well after back sugery

Jim is up and around, even going on a short walk Tuesday, according to Merry Rue. He's cut back on pain meds, always a good sign, and getting his appetite back.

Told you to go fishing Tuesday...

Okay, fishing was a bit slow in the morning at River's Edge, but as the morning wore on the bite got better, culminating in Jim Clune's 20-inch rainbow.

Ice and everything else looks good for Nebraska

Norm has been talking with the ranch manager and everything looks green for this weekend’s ice fishing trip for Nebraska northern pike.

The ranch will provide a stove, refrigerator, microwave and other gear, along with bedding and an outdoor grill. Club members are meeting at the McDonalds in Wellington at 6:30 a.m. Friday.

Rich is feeling better

Rich Radies is home and feeling pretty spunky.

International Sportsman's Expos in Denver

A few of us have talked about going to the International Sportsman's Expos in Denver on Thursday January 9th. If you want to ride share, we plan on meeting at Sams parking lot in Loveland and leaving around 11 since the exposition opens at noon. A few may want to leave earlier and have lunch in Denver or somewhere on the way since that's around lunch time.

Discounts for tickets may be available at a few businesses. The Denver Post had some recently that Bill Prater grabbed. They must be getting wise to seniors since the only age discounts are for youths 15 and under!

Um, change in plans for Boyd

One problem with being retired. Is, you kind of lose track of time, even holidays. Linda just asked me, “ Fishing Wednesday? We have to be at the neighbor’s party...” sorry gang, go as planned. If you can, but I’m having to wait till Thursday. Same time and place, 8:30 a.m. in northwest corner of Marina Inlet. Join me if you can.

Let's pound Boyd Wednesday!

The ice is solid, and the Marina Inlet is a zoo today with anglers who must have gotten ice fishing gear for Christmas. Fish are biting. Let's meet at the northwest corner of the inlet about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

If you don't have an annual pass and want to save $9, drop me a note and we can drive in from my house. Click here. I just have a hand auger, which ought to work fine, but gas or electric welcome.
