Buying live sonar? Here’s what to know about rigging it on your boat

Chances are good that you have heard of forward-facing (or “live”) sonar.
Perhaps you may have already bought the relatively new fish-finding technology. Maybe you’re trying to determine if it’s for you. Live sonar is a big consideration for many, and once you’ve decided to add it to your fishing boat, you’ll face another big question: how you want it rigged.

Vic Attardo: Use this clever technique to hook the powerful Delaware River shad

You’ll never see a shad cut into a school of minnows and grab one – their mouths are too small for that.
And you won’t see a shad bust against shoreline to grab a frog or bluegill. Again, their mouths are too small, and that’s just not the way they operate. Also, I’ve never see a shad surface-splash into rising mayflies. I doubt they know how.
But hook into a significant size shad and you’re quickly introduced to its power and glory.

Commentary: Understanding what’s happening with the northern Wisconsin deer herd

In 1992 we started to buy land 20 miles north of Ladysmith, Wis. By 2000 we had about 3,000 acres in one block and over that time we added 120 acres of food plots. We planted every crop imaginable, but our staples were soybeans, corn, alfalfa, kale and clover.
We had a live camera system (32 cameras) installed where we could watch many of the fields and crossings and they recorded video on motion.

Crows are squawking on your right. He must be getting closer. He’s looking for you and you’re looking for him. The intensity of this hunt is in high-gear.
Now, don’t make a mistake.

Paddlefish, rainbow trout part of ‘interesting’ catches by researchers at Mississippi River Lock and Dam 19

Fishermen and fish scientists have very different motivations and purposes when they arrive at a river or lake. But both are equally fascinated when something odd or interesting shows up – or swims by.
The 35-pound paddlefish captured at Mississippi River Lock and Dam 19 earlier this month is a perfect example, as was the impressive rainbow trout that easily could have topped the scale at more than 4 pounds.
