I deal with fishermen every day and one common thread I see is the desire of each and every one of us to locate some special ingredient that will catch more and bigger fish for us. Our competitive nature encourages us to improve our fishing in order to be just a little bit better than everyone else. This can be a personally rewarding and sometimes...

When I speak at fishing clubs I often make a statement that shocks everyone there. I tell them that their teasers will be much more important in catching fish than their favorite lures.

Are you fishing the break? If not, you have been missing out. A “break” can be many different things, but the two types of breaks I am referring to are related to water color and temperature.  Not only will you catch more fish on the break, you will save time and gas looking for the right spot. Color Break The color break ca...
