Cheney WalleyeMay 13, 2015 - Cheney - May 13, 2015 Weds. Walleye fishing has been excellent with many up to 26" and a lot of them. Best year class on big fish for me at this lake. Wipers hard to find. Here is a picture of a small walleye a good sign of small walleye in the lake for up coming years. White bass continue to look good two year straight now. 


Missouri Angler 1Missouri Angler 2May 9, 2015 - Fortuna, Missouri - Rhippyn age 9 caught these last month in Fortuna, Missouri. His goal is to become a professional fisherman.

Louisanna Catfish caught by Jake RussellMy 65-pound Louisiana catfish. I caught him on a small sun purch, gave a great fight! Using 80lbs test line #8 hook doing some tight lining. Just have to be patient and understanding catfish habitats, spawning times, pre  spawning, knowing where there's a good source of food for big cats.
