The Nebraska Chapter of Trout Unlimited is having their banquet this Saturday, Jan. 30.  The event will be held at Anthony’s Steakhouse in Omaha.  You never know who might show up, I am looking forward to being there and sharing fish stories with folks!

If you are interested in attending you can find information here, .

I have been on the ice a couple of times in the past week, fished small ponds both times.  Ice conditions are still good although last weekend it was sloppy with all the snow melt on top of the ice.  Right now be careful of the slick ice as all that melt water has re-frozen as slick as ever–where your creepers.

My experience is the fish are still a little bit challenging right now.  I was able to tempt some bluegills and one nice crappie into biting, but watched a lot more bluegills on the depth-finder come in for a look, but then swim away.  Of course the small bass always seem willing to bite.  Things should pick up here as February rolls around.  Once we get some nicer weather and thawing the fishing will get better again.

I did slip out onto some bigger water for a little while.  Got one big fish to come up for a Chubby Darter; released him after the battle.

You’re scaring me D.B.! Tell everybody at Trout Unlimited “hello” for me. I’ll be at the Nebraska Big Buck Classic shopping around and perhaps sneaking in the Nebraska Travel & Tourism booth. Have a good one!
