Catch More Trout With the Magic Marshmallow


By: Terry Wiest Fishing marshmallows for trout is nothing new. Forty some years ago they were the “in” thing. Back then many different manufacturers launched several flavors and colors. My favorites were always cheese or garlic. Meanwhile, since I like to experiment with different baits and techniques I found a different way to trout fish [...]

Oroville Salmon Showing in Good Numbers


By: Chris Shaffer It took us longer to launch the boat on Lake Oroville than it did for us to catch our first salmon. Considering none of us had ever fished the reservoir for Chinook this should tell you the state of the fishery. Oroville’s inland Chinook program is off to a good start this [...]

Last Chance for Feather Stripers


By: Chris Shaffer While not carrying the same buzz it did last year the Northern California striper run is still going on. In fact, we caught a four-man limit and released another dozen fish while filming on the Feather River with Scott Feist of Feisty Fish Guide Service. Action was non-stop even though the run [...]

Jersey’s Lower Musconetcong Loaded with Trout


By: Chris Shaffer They told me an hour was enough. That was one hour to film an entire episode of Pautzke Outdoors on the Lower Musconetcong River in New Jersey. That included time to cover our gear, rigging, intros and catching dozens of trout. Our contacts were wrong. It only took 30 minutes. The trout [...]

Alabama River Crappie Bite Taking Off


By: Eric Cagle It’s crappie time on the Alabama River and the bite is good. The Alabama River holds some of the biggest fish in the state by far. A two-pound crappie here is pretty normal. It’s not uncommon to catch a fish like that. The average fish is probably going to weigh a pound-and-a-quarter [...]
