    Checklist to get your boat ready for fishing season

    This is a good article from the Payson Roundup about getting your boat ready for fishing season. "With the great runoff into Roosevelt, lake levels are on the rise with new structure being added to the water that correlates to great fishing. If you are an angler and have a boat, it has probably been stored in a garage or under a boat cover for much of the last five months. Well, it’s time to...

    Lynx Lake & Willow Springs

    I was hoping someone could help confirm if either of these lakes allow you to run a 9.9 motor above a no wake speed? I know the lakes are quite a bit difference in size but I am trying to pick a first time in a boat fishing trip for my boys. The main reason I want somewhere to run above no wake is this is my first time with a used motor I purchased. Also if anyone has other lake suggestions...

I've used cowbells, spinners, and crickhoppers, sometimes with a worm or some powerbait on the end....

    Help Lost Seat Back Rest

    Hi, last weekend leaving Parker, the seat back rest from my Ranger boat blew out from Running Man gas station to I-10 on 95 or 72. I think it probably came out on 95 but Im not sure. If someone finds it I would sure like to get it back and would pay a reward/finders fee and shipping to get it back to Tucson. It is light silver with red and grey trim. If someone needs a photo I can text or...

    What's the best place to go to catch a walleye in Arizona? I've seen a few lakes including Powell but catch rates are low.

    Future of bait fishing in AZ from AZGFD

    Good article from azgfd about possibly using the native Sonora sucker for bait fishing on a large scale. I personally only ever used minnows for crappie fishing, other than that, I took the bait fish from the lake, mostly bluegills for flatheads. "In recent decades, using live baitfish was the best way to catch your dinner. But with more and more people practicing catch and release,...

    Video: Striper fishing at Lake Pleasant

    This trip at Lake Pleasant we got into a better school of 2 - 4 pound stripers and also got one nice crappie. These stripers are super fun to catch and will put and bend in your rod and make your drag sing on light line. [MEDIA]
