April 10, 2014 - PRATT – In Kansas trout waters, it’s not uncommon to drop a lure and get a bite after a few minutes, but to drop a lure, get a bite, and reel in a 15.72-pound rainbow trout is almost unheard of. Read Story

June 13, 2015 -McPherson County State Lake - My son and I spent about 3 and half hours fishing from shore on 6/13 in the afternoon. We had a blast. Most notable was my son sweeping the lake. ( caught all species ) Crappie, redear, saugeye, catfish and largemouth bass all on Canadian night crawler. Me, I caught about 10-13 ( I lost count, to tell the truth.) Channels. My mistake was not having a ruler with me. We did catch one that we knew exceeded the length limit a couple of others were iffey so we tossed those back. The cat was hammering chicken liver and the stink bait that mike cook uses.
June 5, 2015 - Wellington - Caught at Wellington on perch. 6/4/15 35 pounds.
June 5, 2015 - Near Madison - Fished on watershed lakes near Madison, Kansas from April 24 - 27. Weather windy &'water dirty & high. Fishing not good, but managed to catch: 1 - 7lb.; 2 - 5 lb; and about 20 smaller ones. Not a good year. I come from San Diego.
May 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.
May 9, 2015 - Fortuna, Missouri - Rhippyn age 9 caught these last month in Fortuna, Missouri. His goal is to become a professional fisherman.
My 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.
April 2015 - Teresa Cook starts the 2015 season with a channel cat that qualifies as a Kansas Master Angler catch.
