Summer Trico Fishing on the Missouri River

Check out this video of Mike Kuhnert getting it done on the Missouri River. We took a little morning float trip yesterday just for fun.

This was my first effort at a pod sipping tricos. I have to say, if you put it on them, they will eat it.

This season has kind of come to a screeching halt and I'm not really sure why. I know it's been hot and smoky but the fishing is still really good. Especially in the mornings. Tricos are going off and fish are happy eating them. Yes, you have to get it over them and yes, you have to get a drift but it's a great way of honing some skills. And in the afternoon, what's more fun than seeing big browns chowing hoppers?

And if you don't like fishing in the afternoon heat, take advantage of the half day specials most of us are offering. Get on, catch a bunch of fish and get off before it gets too hot. There are plenty of fish to be had and there are no boats! Yeah, the river is wide open if you venture a little down stream.

Keep 'em where they live...
