Functioning Friday - Episode One

Are you ready for something new?  Welcome to Functioning Friday, our first attempt at a weekly (or perhaps monthly) post/feature. Friday nights are always dead traffic wise, so it’s as good a time as any for some bad content.  Someone has to show the boring, weird, and pointless underbelly of the fishing world…  So here we […]

An awe Inspiring Double Rainbow...  And Some Fishing

Made an extremely short trip to Skippack Creek on the way home form work yesterday. Caught a few Bluegill, ran from some lightening, and saw some cool stuff. 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 […]

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 […]

Bass Fishing in Unami Creek 7-4-2011

When we last spoke I was too busy explaining how to stay safe while fishing to show you all of the nice Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass I caught while fishing in Unami Creek. Despite my best efforts at breaking my knee I managed to keep fishing after the accident.  The official fish count for my trip […]

Grub Fly Patterns - Experimental

While I haven’t gotten around to posting the fishing mayham that was last weekend’s outing with my mom, I will tell you we caught a lot of fish.  I’ll also tell you there was a downside to our method…  GRUBS. Last weekend I experienced “Butter Worms” for the first time and these things are nasty! […]

East Branch Perkiomen Creek Fishing Report 5-22-2011

I did some fly fishing on the East Branch of the  Perkiomen Creek this afternoon. Although the weather report was calling for rain, the afternoon remained dry, somewhat warm, and even sunny at times. I decided to try my luck on a new section of the creek that I hadn’t fully explored before.  I tied on a black wooly […]

East Branch Perkiomen Creek Fishing Report 5-3-2011

I made an after work stop to the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek last Tuesday.  It was a warm and fairly sunny May evening.  Sparse clouds were rolling through and other than a few light raindrops, the weather was perfect. I started this trip with my spinning rod and one of the inline spinners […]

Fishing Report Saturday 4-30-2011

Last Saturday was the first day of real fishing this year.  If you’ve been following along you know that so far in 2011 the Functioning Fishaholics haven’t caught many fish.  A few stocked Trout, a nice Smallmouth Bass, and a Bluegill here or there but no serious fishing action.  This past Saturday was the beginning […]

Caught a fish today

Caught a fish today I checked out a new “top secret Trout” hole today.  Although I wasn’t able to catch any Trout I did catch the Bluegill above.  He loved my gold bladed black spinner.  I also had couple more fish on the line but they got off. There were actively feeding trout in the […]
