NEW STATE RECORD RAINBOW TROUT TIPS SCALES AT 15.72 POUNDSAngler Josh McCullough caught the behemoth trout from Kill Creek Park Lake in Johnson County

April 10, 2014 - PRATT – In Kansas trout waters, it’s not uncommon to drop a lure and get a bite after a few minutes, but to drop a lure, get a bite, and reel in a 15.72-pound rainbow trout is almost unheard of. Read Story

June 13, 2015 -McPherson County State Lake - My son and I spent about 3 and half hours fishing from shore on 6/13 in the afternoon.  We had a blast.  Most notable was my son sweeping the lake. ( caught all species )  Crappie, redear, saugeye, catfish and largemouth bass all on Canadian night crawler.  Me, I caught about 10-13 ( I lost count, to tell the truth.) Channels.  My mistake was not having a ruler with me.  We did catch one that we knew exceeded the length limit a couple of others were iffey so we tossed those back.  The cat was hammering chicken liver and the stink bait that mike cook uses.

Wellington FlatheadJune 5, 2015 - Wellington - Caught at Wellington on perch. 6/4/15 35 pounds.


June 5, 2015 - Near Madison - Fished on watershed lakes near Madison, Kansas from April 24 - 27.  Weather windy &'water dirty & high.  Fishing not good, but managed to catch:  1 - 7lb.; 2 - 5 lb; and about 20 smaller ones.  Not a good year.  I come from San Diego.

Cheney WalleyeMay 13, 2015 - Cheney - May 13, 2015 Weds. Walleye fishing has been excellent with many up to 26" and a lot of them. Best year class on big fish for me at this lake. Wipers hard to find. Here is a picture of a small walleye a good sign of small walleye in the lake for up coming years. White bass continue to look good two year straight now. 


Missouri Angler 1Missouri Angler 2May 9, 2015 - Fortuna, Missouri - Rhippyn age 9 caught these last month in Fortuna, Missouri. His goal is to become a professional fisherman.

Louisanna Catfish caught by Jake RussellMy 65-pound Louisiana catfish. I caught him on a small sun purch, gave a great fight! Using 80lbs test line #8 hook doing some tight lining. Just have to be patient and understanding catfish habitats, spawning times, pre  spawning, knowing where there's a good source of food for big cats.

Teresa CookApril 2015 - Teresa Cook starts the 2015 season with a channel cat that qualifies as a Kansas Master Angler catch.
