It's Friday and you need to waste some time to get to your weekend. Well, do we have the video for you. These super-sick bros didn't have the know-how to catch carp on rod and reel and they didn't have the ability to shoot them with archery gear. So, they decided to grab a ground blind and some snorkeling gear and hunt the carp underwater.
Surprisingly, it sort of worked. Even more surprising, no one was killed.
Considering the winter that has plagued—and continues to plague—much of the nation, more than a few outdoorsmen are surely sitting next to a wood stove right now, glancing out the window onto an endless snowscape, and dreaming of shooting long-bearded gobblers and tossing plugs to potbellied largemouths.

It won’t happen because the centuries-old Narail method is almost a thing of the past, due in part to depleting fish stock, human encroachment, and pollution. [ Read Full Post ]

Winning the Pro Am California Tournament Trail Event was pretty sweet for angler Keith Bryan, but even sweeter was the fact that he may have just broken the spotted bass world record, decking a whopping 10.48 pounder. Bryan casted a 5-inch Yamamoto Senko out into a secluded area of New Melonies Reservoir, when the waters erupted around his lure from a crushing hit.
Bryan, a seasoned angler and owner of Powell Fishing Rods, exclaimed, “She came up several times just so you can see the hook in her mouth about 20 yards away, then she would just rip line and go down.” [ Read Full Post ]

What does it mean to "unzip" a walleye, and how do you do it?
It's no secret that walleyes are one of the best-tasting fish on the planet. However, pesky lateral-line bones can turn any fish fry into the sportsman's version of Hell's Kitchen. "Unzipping" is the common term used to describe a simple way of removing that nasty line of bones from your fillets.
