One Last Time

One door closes, another opens. Or at least that is how it’s supposed to go. In my experience, when an opportunity comes to an end, it is just the means for another to begin. But you better believe I fought to keep that last door open, and for me, that door was collegiate fishing.

One last time, one last tournament to say goodbye to the amazing four years I've been afforded in the collegiate fishing arena. B.A.S.S. And FLW definitely put me through the ringer; from last place in a qualifier to a single bag of fish away from a spot in the Bassmaster Classic. To all those young anglers out there, cherish your team in collegiate fishing. It may be the best four years of your fishing life.

If you don’t mind the use of an old adage, when it comes to using today’s high end electronics, it can sometimes be hard to see the forest for the trees.

20 Years ago, you’d launch the boat, turn your locator on and go fishing.

10 years ago, you’d launch your boat, turn your locator on, make sure your GPS map was up and go fishing.

Now, you launch your boat, turn both your locators on (and possibly your radar), make sure you’ve got the proper mapping software up, make sure you have an SD card in the graph to record, ensure that each graph is reading the correct transducer, make sure they are linking properly to each other, make sure the right tracks and waypoints are showing, and then go fishing.

Fall Crappies: Look for Transitions

Fall crappie fishing would probably be a fine alternative definition of “feast or famine”.

One day you feel like there isn’t a square foot of the lake without a hungry speck occupying it; and the next you’ll come back to the ramp with an empty livewell, a low tank of gas, and even lower self-esteem.

Guide Joel Ballweg of Ballweg’s guide service (www.lakewisconsinfishing.com) has been chasing crappies for years on Lake Wisconsin, one of the premier crappie fisheries in the Midwest. He knows firsthand how difficult it can be to consistently catch fall crappies.

I’m always excited in July of each year to see just what new creations will come to life as a result of this congregation of fishing tackle companies (and the geniuses who own and run them) called ICAST.

And this year, like several in the past, the supreme Guru of plastics, Gary Yamamoto did not disappoint.

Hite's Bites - Make Your Game Day for a Fall Day

E-mail Print PDF


October 15, 2014

I’m a big fan of fall fishing because it’s a best-of-both-worlds scenario. You can fish shallow or deep and expect to catch big fish on many different Yamamoto baits in both extremes.

That’s mainly due to the drastic temperature change we feel. For the last 4-5 months, we’ve been dealing with basically the same weather forecast – hot. In the fall, morning temperatures are cooler, water temperatures start to decline and days grow shorter. All those changes together push the fish out of their summer habits and into fall patterns.
