Daily AMFisH blog post – what you need to dropshot.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  It’s a cool spring and the dropshot technique is a great presentation to target fish with this cool damp spring weather. It’s a pretty simple rig, a hook dropshot weight and a soft plastic or live bait, that’s it! Best part of this presentation is it almost works by itself!  Very little action is needed and a few easy twitches can go a long way. Experiment with the length of line between the sinker and hook, as the bait will need to remain above the fish

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – use trailers on your baits to increase you odds.

Hi AMFisHers!    This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about using trailers on your baits to increase your odds of catching fish: Baits work as they are outside of the packages BUT there are always ways to increase your chances of catching more fish! Once key thing I do is use soft plastic trailers on my spinnerbaits and bucktails, WHY well it’s simple as AMFisHers we need as much of an advantage as we can get getting those fish to strike and by adding a soft plastic to a bait yo

Today’s AMFisH fishing blog post – tips for spooling line on a baitcasting reel.

Hi AMFisHers!   Spring fishing is almost here and I thought I would share a post with some tips in it for spooling line on to your baitcasting reels. First fishing line does not last for many years and it ages quicker is left in direct lights so keep your spools tucked away in a dark place.  Depending on how often you fish it is a good idea to get into the practice of changing it every season, mono and fluorocarbon for sure, with braid you can usually get away with cutting of

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – The AMFisH creation story, video #100!

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  This is a very special AMFisH fishing vlog that is going live this week, as it is the AMFisH creation story vlog as well as my 100th video that has gone live on my YouTube channel! AMFisH goes back many years to the time when I was in the mid teens and thinking of what wanted to do for a living or what I wanted to be part of as a career, a very confusion time for me as I knew fishing was what I wanted to do but had not idea how I would get to doing it.

AMFisH daily blog post – spring fishing bait tips!

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   Spring is just around the corner and there are some key spring fishing strategies when it comes to what baits to use. Bait fish are their smallest in the very early months so throwing a huge bait does not make for a good choice.   You will want to stick to smaller baits, in the 3.5″ and shorter range, as well as slimmer profile baits with not too much body bulk. Spring is the time of year when everything is rejuvenating itself, small fry bait fish are s

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – my biggest Canadian largemouth bass catch, a 7lb monster!

AMFisHers!   This week s AMFisH fishing vlog is a short video of my biggest Canadian largemouth bass caught to date, 7lb monster! I was fishing a well known spot on a lake I fish a lot on and it was very close to sunset, when I decided to end the day fishing that spot.  I saw a huge breech and new something big was in the area on a feed so I continued to circle this massive weed/rock filled structure, using my go to bait double Colorado chartreuse spinnerbait with a twin boog

AMFisH daily blog post – specific baits for specific lakes.

Hi AMFisHers, This AMFisH daily blog post is about specific baits for specific lakes.   Over the years I have learned to have specific baits organized in individual tackle trays that I use on certain lakes. This is quite a unique strategy as you have baits in the trays that have worked well on a specific lake you fish and continue to add to that tray after each outing.   You success rate increases by a good 85%, simply due to the fact that you are using baits that have worked

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – what colour baits to use in stained and clear waters.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about what colour bait to use in stained and clear waters: I have been asked on numerous occasions while fishing as to what colour to use and if colour makes a big difference.  Well it was time I shot a video on this topic as there are many variables that come into play. The rule of thumb is when the sun is out go to a bright bait that will be visible to the fish and catch lots of flash.    On the flip side during an ove

AMFisH daily blog post – polarized glasses for fishing.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  This AMFisH daily blog post is about polarized glasses for fishing. Polarized sunglasses not only protect your eyes from harmful rays of the sun, but they allow you to block out glare which in turn provides a clear detailed view of the water, structure, baitfish, fish, casting areas and much more. You can start off with a inexpensive pair like I did many years ago in the range of $12 to $18 and once you realize  how much you can benefit from them you can

Daily AMFisH blog post – rigging worm baits to be even more weedless

Hi AMFisHers !  This AMFisH blog post is about how you can rig your worms baits to be even more weedless. When you think of a weedless worm first thing that comes to mind is a Texas rigged worm, which is extremely weedless.  This blog is about adding another element of weedless to your worm. You will need a small willow blade, an O ring, swivel(optional) and a screw in worm spring.   You put the blade on the O ring, then slide the O ring o to the worm spring, from here you gr

AMFisH daily blog post – engage in fishing chats on social media and forums!

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   This AMFisH daily blog post is about engaging in fishing chats.   Fishing chats with fellow fishing people are a great way to spend some of your time!

Snapped this beautiful shot early Saturday morning when I arrived at the lake. Clouds looked amazing and the light was just right making for a nice picture. Ended up being a very windy day made for tough fishing, missed a few really big bass as I was focused on not getting knocked off the boat by the strong winds. None the less a good enjoyable day on the water! The AMFisH guy… www.amfish.ca www.facebook.com/amfish14 #clouds #fish #fishing #lake

This picture blows my mind, once again taken by my long time friend Dave at our fishing trip on the Ottawa River.   The night before we experienced a storm and woke up to a chilly fog filled morning, decided to head out for a morning fish and this was the view……..I will it is “GORGEOUS” for now because I don’t think a word exists that allows me to describe this any better… The AMFisH guy… www.amfish.ca #fishing #fog #rivers #sunshine #clouds #mountains

This is a picture of one side of the lake I was fishing this weekend, it was still like glass for hours, not good for fishing but definitely great for relaxing as it was like looking at a series of postcards wherever you looked !   Crazy thing is it was windy and the water was just dead flat, figured a storm was going to roll in at some point, sure did as soon as we got off the water the sky turned black and down came the cold intense rain… The AMFisH guy… amfish.ca #clouds #

A nickname that I have had most of my life is “MR. SAFETY”, I seem to have this protective nature in me which comes out when it comes to keeping my self and others around me safe.   Thought it was time I shared this side of me with other people who fish around the world, as I have had my share of incidents on the water where others needed help in bad weather or situations. Took this picture about a week ago while fishing, weather forecast called for nasty storms but the weath
