Well, folks, it’s that time of year again.  Walleye season opens on May 3rd.  As far as I’m concerned, there is no better eating fish in either fresh or salt water.  While I certainly have no problem with catch and release fishing, as many readers know, I also have no problem with catch and eat fishing. This holds especially true when it comes to walleyes.  In fact, I have known people who usually don’t like fish who find walleyes delicious.  Let’s take a look at these tasty, toothy scrappers.

With spring now officially getting underway, I thought it might be fun to open things with a little look at some readily available wild edibles.  A personal favorite of mine is wild onions, and soon will be one of the best times to go after them.  You can find them just about anywhere, often even in your own backyard.  Often, you can smell them before you see them.

Well, folks, the moment so many of us have been eagerly awaiting has finally  come.  It’s Spring!!!

Well, I think the time has finally arrived.  Winter is over.  True, we may get some more snow, but the worst is, I think, behind us.  As i write this, the weather outside is bitterly cold, but it is supposed to last for only one day.

It’s that time of year for those of us of the angling persuasion start to blow the winter’s dust off our fishing tackle. In our eagerness to wet a line, many of us will head out after the not-so-elusive sucker. Anglers will be popping up along the banks of area rivers and streams before very long now, and, if all goes as planned, I’ll be among them.

I know that you are probably tired of hearing this, but what a brutal winter we’re having!  As I sit at the computer writing this, it’s snowing like mad out there.  This is, by the way, contrary to what we were told by the various television weather gurus.

Well, as we all know, we have had a brutal winter, and, as of this writing, it is still going on.  Those of us of the fishing persuasion can only look forward to sucker fishing, as soon as the ice goes out on the Allegheny.  As a realist, I know that there is probably a lot more to come.  But, since I am fishing minded, I hope that at least some kind of fishing comes along soon.
This week, let’s look a bit at an early opportunity to wet a line.

Let’s start things off this week with a little news story. The Clarion County Bassmasters are holding a Kids’ Fishing Seminar on Saturday, March 15th, from 10 AM - 5 PM at the Parker Fire Hall.  It is all free, and will feature education on fishing for different species, conservation and safety. There is also a free hot dog lunch, too! This is an excellent  chance to introduce kids to the fun of fishing, with no cost. For more information, contact Tom Jackson at 724-290-3900.

As many of us are painfully aware, it’s been really cold lately, which could spell some decent ice fishing. Since one of my New Year’s resolutions was to try to go ice fishing at least once, let’s look a bit at this somewhat brutal (on the angler) sport. I did it for many years in my younger days, but I haven’t gone ice fishing in many years now.
