Protect Yourself From the Sun

I can’t tell you how many times guys tell me that they don’t use or don’t want sunscreen. Their argument is often that the scent will be on your hands and get on your lures. With everything we know about skin cancer, this is unacceptable to me. First, we have conventional sunscreen. If you put it on before you start fishing and wash your hands the scent will be gone before you start fishing. This will not get you through an entire day. Second, we have spray on sunscreen. The spray never touches your hands and can be applied several times a day without much effort. Finally, there is UV protective clothing including light weight long sleeved shirts, head and neck covers, and even gloves. In this day and age there is no reason to come over the water sun burnt and in discomfort. Remember to do this in cold weather as well. It is the most common time to get burnt because you can’t tell until it is too late.

Cheap Bobber

wine bottle corkBeing an avid outdoorsman I am constantly trying to find ways to reuse as many everyday items. Something I have found to work quite well is using wine bottle corks as bobbers. Typically, I take the wine bottle cork and cut it in half. my next move is to spray paint the cork whatever color I desire. Sometimes I don’t even bother to paint them, but the kids always like bright colors. Next I take my cordless drill with a 3/32 drill bit and drill the hole centered in the cork from top to bottom. At this point you have a slip bobber and can be used as such. However, I typically take a toothpick and use it as a bobber stop. This system helps the environment and saves money at the same time.

Muddy Creek

This month our featured fishery could be looked at as part of Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park. However we believe that Muddy Creek, the tail waters of the Lake Arthur Dam, deserve to be classified as its own fishery. The tail waters stretch from the Lake Arthur Dam until it runs into Slippery Rock Creek. It can be difficult to fish, but if you can deal with hiking and working to get through brush you can find some really nice areas to fish.

Some of the species that you will find in Muddy Creek include: walleye, crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass, northern pike, and muskellunge. Near the tail waters you will find that there are gizzard shad. These are often the target of the trophy muskellunge. Just because this in not a large fishery don’t assume that the fish are not going to be big. You may not catch a bunch of fish, but you will catch quality fish. Walleye over 20 inches are common and 40 inch muskellunge are common as well.

Time of year should determine how you fish and the size of lures that you use. In the winter the best rig to use is a single hook a small split shot and a medium fathead minnow. This will catch every species swimming in the creek, especially the muskellunge and northern pike. Once the water begins to warm up in the spring larger lures. Spinnerbaits, stick baits, buzzbaits and frogs are all good options. For bass brings you jigs and trailers and you will not be disappointed.

Trailer Bearings

Bearing Buddy Cap

Bearing Buddy Cap

When was the last time you check the trailer bearings? Most guys make sure they keep up with the maintenance on the boat, motor and equipment, but most of the time they overlook their boat trailer. It can be as simple as jacking the trailer up rocking the tires and letting the jack down if all seems good. If your trailer has bearing buddies it is a good idea to pump some grease into the bearings a few times a year depending on how often the trailer in being towed. This simple maintenance can save you from being stuck on the side of the road.
