Winter Fishing

Winter is right around the corner, it's the time you can bet you're going to catch that trophy Smallmouth or Walleye! Start looking at your calendars to plan a day to get o out and on the river hunting that trophy. The meteorologists are saying we will have an El Nino winter. Which means more precipitation and warmer than average temps. A perfect time to grab some winter gear and get out on the river!

Making a wish come true

When you're client tells you that want to break their PB. The fish must have heard him! He's a Texas guy and they don't have a ton of Smallie action down there. We're still booking September is close at hand which means hungry fish trying to pack on the pounds for the winter lull! 304 283 0815 www.wegofish.com

Fly Fishing at its best

Long time Fly Fishing Client Joel booked us for a last minute solo angler trip. It was a beautiful day and everything felt right about fishing the Shenandoah River. I had been wanting to get Joel out on a stretch that he had only fished once in the 7 or 8 years he's been fishing with me. The day started a little slow but with a few fly changes we began to get into some Smallmouth Bass. When we hoped into the first ledge system the first cast landed a 20.50" 4lb post spawn Smallmouth Bass. Joel's first 20 with me. The water was skinny in the ledges and he did exactly what any seasoned Fly Guy could do to keep the fish off a life time from running into rocks to break him off. With in an hour he had another 20" Shenandoah Smallie in the boat! our was an epic day!

Methodically working it over!

Took my Partner in Slime and another friend down the Shenandoah for a fun trip a bus man's holiday if you will. It was a beautiful day and we boated over 80 fish. The largest came out before lunch time. An area between ledges that we had thrown to many times with flukes, swimbaits and tubes. We pulled a quite a few fish out of this hole but nothing to write home about. I switched up baits putting the tube away and tying on a new to me Deps Cover Scat. Wham Bam Thank you ma'am 21"s and 5lbs of Tug. We had lots of worthy fish and numbers ta boot!

A little rain never hurts!

The Weather Forecast was calling for some rain in the morning. And it did just that starting out light with a few periods of heavier precipitation. the water was stained but not heavy. The game plan was flukes for running and gunning and tubes for when we were set up and stationary. Even though we had rain which eventually turned to a sunny day, we made it happen. And boated more than 40 fish!
