    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...

    Best lake in AZ for walleye?

    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.

    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...

    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]

    Pics of boat taken out by waves at Lake Pleasant

    Saw this post on the az striper fishing fb page. "Just a reminder that some of these ARIZONA lakes like lake Pleasant are no joke. Lake Pleasant had 45 - 50 mph winds today. This poor guy had to leave his boat behind with 5 foot wipe caps. Be careful be smart. "

    I would like to remind our anglers when asked to make sure to say ‘yes, we are fishing for trout

    More pushing of the trout. Similar thread here about why so much effort is going into Trout vs any other species of fishing in AZ lakes and rivers. New Article from Mohave Valley News below. A few hardy anglers have braved the cold (well, cold for Bullhead City, anyway) weather in their quest for rainbow trout. “The rainbow trout are in,” said Rusty Braun, proprietor of Riviera Marina in...

    Why so much effort stocking trout at desert lakes and rivers?

    Maybe I'm the only one that thinks this but it seems like the game and fish department is pushing trout fishing too much. Was just reading this article that says "According to the state Game and Fish Department (AZGF), Colorado River stakeholders have expressed interest in reducing bag limits for the region’s trout because of an increase in the fish’s popularity among Arizona and Nevada...

    Thai fishing traps

    Saw these cool fishing traps for sale in Thailand. Looks like a good diy project if you have some old nets and water bottles. Basically you cut the tops off the water bottles, glue them to each side of the trap, and leave enough net at the top to close it off and reopen it when you catch some shad. [ATTACH]

    Anyone been out to the black river near where it meets the white river and fished for smallmouth bass? They were pretty small last time I went out but I caught a ton of them.

    Video Tubing the Salt River and Fishing at the same time.

    Just fyi, if you haven't though of it, you can go to the lower Salt River and get the bus and bring your own tube and pole and fish + get drunk with the rest of the tuber. This was a few years back, I brought my own tube I picked up at Big5. If was still pretty cold in spring. [MEDIA]
