  • I’m not sure what it is about this time of year that puts me into a mood that my wife refers to as my “Grump Month” but it has happened every year since I spotted my first gray nose hair. It’s not an aging thing, trust me. I’ve accepted that aggravating process with the grace of a moderate...

  • I am going to go out on a very thick limb and declare the silver run at the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon deader than a seniors-only concert featuring Roseanne Barr singing the national anthem after activating her one remaining brain cell. I had heard rumors that there were still some jumpers acco...

  • If Captain Kirk and his gang from the starship Enterprise had popped out of a reverse time warp above the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon over the weekend, they would have stumbled onto a scene that would have spawned serious flashbacks. Only this time around it would have been “The Trouble with Treble...

  • If you haven’t joined the silver stampede yet, just wait. Toward the end of the week there are going to be a series of tides so huge the cohoes could be surging into the area in schools larger than the old Sierra Nevada Comstock Lode. Anyone visiting the Spit during the last few weeks who has the ...

  • My wife and I relearned a lesson over the last week and it wasn’t pretty. Since The Fishing Hole has been handing out silver liked a short-circuited slot machine in Reno, we decide that we’d slip out there and pick up a couple of those beauties for the barbecue. Something went wrong. Way wrong. ...

  • Now that the silvers are starting to enter the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon, it’s time for some of you to pause and try to figure out why you missed more strikes than a blindfolded drunk at a piñata party when the chinooks were kings of The Hole....

  • The Fourth of July celebration was enveloped by such a superb three-day weather forecast that northern worker bees were attracted to our area in impressive swarms buzzing around in everything from overpriced vanity convertibles to motorhomes with optional slide-out lawns....

  • Over the weekend, I took notice of a superfluity of rather unseemly comments concerning the conditions at the cleaning tables adjacent to the Homer Spit’s fishing lagoon.   While trying to fillet their catches, anglers were under siege by a squadron of sky rats with the manners of turkey buzz...

  • As I wander around during the week shooting the breeze with shore anglers, I’m amazed to find that many aren’t carrying a tide book either on them or in their rig. There is a plethora of information squeezed into those little booklets covering everything from how to tie fishing knots to how to o...

  • I just don’t get it. For weeks, information has been bouncing around the Internet and printed media that, for right now, fishermen and fisherettes may only use one unbaited, single-hook, artificial lure on the Anchor River, Deep Creek and Ninilchik River.  Pretty straight forward right? ...
