Lake Lavon Fishing | Juglining Gets a Nice Catfish | iFishNews Fishing Podcast #20!

August 13, 2020

Caught a nice size Catfish while fishing our local lake - Lake Lavon. Caught it on juglines fished in 10 feet of water. Caught other smaller Catfish; the largest went 32 inches! Was fishing from a kayak. Decided it was better to and it at the boat ramp.  For this podcast, we summarize the trip and point out some key lessons learned to take with us on the next trip!

This round we talk about cast nets and catching bait... shad in particular.  Recently, we learned we could freeze shad for use at other lakes. That said, it's has been hit or miss catching them. But, we do have a few bags ready to go for our next fishing trip.

iFishNews Fishing Podcast #16 - Cast Net Repair, GoFish Camera, and Kayak Juglining!

July 14, 2020

This round we provide another update on the Team's fishing activities this past week! Temps are in the 100s but somehow we have made the effort to continue fishing or at least do things related to fishing.

We started out making much needed repairs to our Cast Net, broken braille lines and temp fixes were hindering our abililty to use fresh shad for Stripers, Gar, and Catfish!

Next, the GoFish Camera arrived, have started fish scouting local ponds with some promising results. Hope to twaek our rig to get better action shots and clearer video of the fish.

And then, the Saturday trip to Lake Lavon made for some fun times catching Catfish on juglines for the Beer Batter Fish Fry that evening... plus a nice Gar went for one of our lines; fun time playing with that one before finally releasing it.

Have more things - fishing things, to do this next week. Do check back for another update!

iFishNews Fishing Podcast 12 - Micro Fly Rods and Micro Fly Fishing

iFishNews Fishing Podcast 12 - Micro Fly Rods and Micro Fly Fishing

June 21, 2020

This rounds iFishNews Fishing Podcast we talk about micro fly rods that we use for micro fly fishing on our local ponds. Several DIY rods we have made by converting Pen Rods, repurposing a broken fly rod, and building one with an ice fishing blank and wine corks for the rod handle.

Recently, courtesy of a Viewer's tip to use practice fly rods from Orvis and Redington, we have started mounting 2wt and 4wt fly reels to make a micro fly rod.

Simple zip ties to hold the reels to the rods makes for a quick conversion to fly fishing rod instead of practice rods!

Below is a link that shows how we converted a Pen Rod to a Micro Fly Rod:

Additionally, here is a past video where we caught a nice catfish using the re-purposed broken fly rod: https://youtu.be/I16KkjXkbcI

Also, here are links to Amazon showing the practice fly rods we converted to micro fly rods:

day, temps were in the 90s and the river was flowing while they were generating power. Next day, cold front rolled in, dropping the temps to the 60s. No power generations, minimal water flow... able to observe what a difference a day makes - specifically, the river and the change in water level.
