Zell Rowland's Best Topwater Fishing Advice

December 31, 2011

It’s my job as a professional fisherman to know every bait, and there’s not one we’ve made that I haven’t had the hooks off. I put larger hooks on, smaller hooks on, I’ll fish it on four or five line sizes to see how that affects the action. You need to really get familiar with a bait to know its potential.


Time for Taneycomo Trout

December 22, 2011

The winter months are hard on anglers. Even on the “nice” days the prospect of slow fishing and cold toes is enough to keep a lot of folks inside. But it’s amazing how you forget your feet when the fish are biting, and the best option for most of us is to forget about bass, crappie and catfish and tackle a trout instead. They thrive in cold water all year long and the action can be fast and furious using fast-paced techniques like twitching a jerkbait or cranking a Teeny Wee Crawfish crankbait.


New Arizona State Record Striped Bass Caught on Heddon Spook!

December 10, 2011

Below is a press release the Arizona Game & Fish Department on a new state record striper caught Monday on one of the best topwater baits of all time, the Heddon Super Spook. I received no answer when I phoned angler John Davis this morning but left a message asking him to return my call so I can provide more details on this great day on the water. And yes, that's John and his fish in the photo.

I didn’t plan those fishing days, but most of us figure the best time to go fishing is when you’ve got the chance. So we gave it our best shot. Three days of hard work to catch just a few fish. To say it was poor fishing would be an understatement, especially when you’ve got an Ace in the hole like Zell Rowland manning the trolling motor.
