An Afternoon Of Fishing 7-30-2011

After taking a nice walk through the woods with Mike from Troutrageous! this morning, I found myself with a burning desire to catch some fish and eat some food. Mc D’s seemed like a good idea at the time…  Nothing like a burger and fries to replenish any burgers or fries I may have exercised away by this […]

An awe Inspiring Double Rainbow...  And Some Fishing

This Bluegill and the next were caught in a heavily fished part of Skippack creek.  They both fell for a mini-hopper fly.  This mini-hopper is a variation […]

East Branch Perkiomen Creek Fishing Report 7-18-2011

Did a little after work fishing Monday on the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek.  Temperatures were in the upper 80’s and I decided to see if I could find some Smallmouth Bass. I ended up with a few nice little Smallies.  One of the fish actually looked pregnant.  I also caught a nice Rock […]

A Few More Perkiomen Creek Smallmouth 7-12-2011

Went out for a little after work fishing on the Perkiomen Creek last night.  I’m in the process of trying to prove that there are some REALLY big Smallmouth Bass in the creek.  So far I’ve been able to hook into some nice 15″ Smallmouth but not anything much larger than that. Last night the […]

Sunday's Fishing At the Secret Spot 7-10-2011

We had a new Functioning Fishaholics Largemouth Bass record on Sunday from the secret spot.  In addition to the new record, Jeff and I caught a good number of fish.  Here’s some highlights.   Luckily that little turtle wasn’t deeply hooked.  We got him back in the water before he even noticed he was caught. We were […]

What Does A Three Pound Largemouth Bass Look Like?

“Oh yea I caught a few three pounders and a couple fives yesterday on the creek…  It was an alright day of fishing…” STOP:  There is nothing that makes my blood boil more than the statement above or any of the many variations you’ll hear when talking to other anglers in Pennsylvania. It seems that […]
