  1. Back out to the local pond fishing a Muddler Minnow using vintage gear - Southbend Bamboo Fly Rod and Shakespeare Fly Reel. Was a little slow at first but managed to catch several Bass and Bluegill. Water was clear, could sight cast to most of the time. Was frustrating at times as I could see fish look and then turn away from the Muddler Minnow. Overall, the series has been a fun one to do! #fishing #flyfishing #bass
  2. Fishing for Bass aka Green Trout with the old Bamboo Fly Rod. Fish are picky, went with a strike indicator and nymph. Thought the Bluegill would take it. Bass got there first!
  3. Round 3 of the $2 BFS Lure Series. This one has yours truly struggling fishing an imitation Snapbean. After using less line on the reel and tweaking the magnetic breaks, was able to cast the lure well. Just need to pay attention to casting into the wind... may lead to a backlash so be careful. https://youtu.be/YTh9nSxrspc
  4. TBT to a trip to the Lower Mountain Fork River fishing for trout at Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma. Was a fun time with warm temps but cool waters and lots of trout in the River!
  5. Updated the iFishNews site to be a little more user friendly. Check it out when you get a chance!
  6. This $2 Lure Works, and an Inline Spinner | Plus Cool Video of a Bass Chasing a Bluegill! Here is the second in the $2 BFS Lure Series where I fish discount lures using ultralight baitcasting gear. First round, I fished a Crawdad. This time, I fish a hard bait that looks like a Yo-Zuri lure. I started out fishing a Chartreuse one but switched to an Inline Spinner because the pond had lots of greenery fouling the lure. Soon after, a Bass chased a Bluegill into the shallows directly in front of me. Got some cool video of it! That said, I cast the spinner and caught a Bass... may have been the one that was chasing a Bluegill! Afterwards, I lost the spinner to a Tree Fish. I decided to go back to the $2 Lure but went with a White one. I also removed the rear hook and left the front hook on in hopes of fouling the lure less. It did work, caught a Bass and also lost one! I learned a stop and go retrieve works well, and watched a Bass swallow the lure... I set the hook but did not land it. Fun times... to check back, playing around with another $2 Lure... another Yo-Zuri imitation that looks very similar to a Snapbean!
  7. Was out fishing the other day when something splashed in front of me. Was not sure but figured it was a Bass. Checked out the video; it was a Bass chasing a Bluegill.... who won?
  8. Old Abu Garcia Inline Spinner Catches 20+ Fish | Vintage Lure Series - Round 3 Another round of fishing in the ongoing Vintage Lure Series where I find old lures at antique stores and fish them using ultralight casting gear aka Bait Finesse System (BFS) Fishing
  9. Thanks! Yes, the thread wraps and ferrule glue need to be checked.
  10. 50+ Year Old Rapala Floating Minnow Still Catches Bass! Fifty plus years old Rapala Floating Minnow still can catch a Bass or two! Round Two of the Vintage Fishing Lure series gets more Bass. Not the 7+ lbs Bass caught in Round 1 but the lure still rocks in the 21st Century! Round 2

  16. Here is a brief demo of the technique we used fishing for Sand Trout this past week at Galveston Fishing Pier. Slow reel, trout mouths lure, feel pressure (resistance), set hook! Do give it a try... should work for Speckle Trout, too. Let us know if it works for you, too!
  17. Great start to our trip to the Texas Coast, fishing the Galveston Fishing Pier in 2022! Steady action on sand trout, hardheads and gaff top... with a nice 41 inch redfish to spice things up. Even broke out the ultralight baitcaster and the tandem rigged spec rigs for sand trout under the lights. Do stay tuned for more!
  18. Brief livestream with fishing updates on what we have been going recently as well as are plans for next week! Can you say saltwater fishing!
  19. Thanks! The bigger ones are nice.
  20. TBT to an earlier trip this year. Tiny lure on an ultralight baitcaster rocked! See full video at... COAF Field Team.
  21. When rain approaches, I decide to go fishing. After a ling dry spell of no rain, I go for a quick trip with the ultralight baitcaster for bait finesse fishing. In short order, it starts pouring. No worries, the bass were biting!
  22. Past trip to the Blue River fly fishing for trout. Used various flies including this one - the Producer! See full video at COAF Field Team.
  23. TBT to last year kayak fishing at Thunderbird Lake in Oklahoma. Needed bait. ended up catching and releasing a nice size Bass!
