Jigs and Bigs Fishing Report: 01/21/22

I might be a day late, but I DO have some news on the hard water front!  I was able to make it out two Sundays ago where I fished on a small secluded pond in the hill towns. There was about 5 to 6 inches of ice. I was fishing more shallow water, 6-7Continue reading “Jigs and Bigs Fishing Report: 01/21/22”

Leave it in the Woods

I think that women are often criticized for making things too emotional. In these male-dominated sports tho, I think we try to hide or mask our emotions. I know I do. We are so afraid of not looking “tough enough” or “capable enough” but I think this hinders us more than it helps. We areContinue reading “Leave it in the Woods”

The Pressure

I stopped in the middle of the trail as the last bit of daylight hung in the air. The darkness seemed to roll in faster now that I had noticed its looming presence. I stopped in the middle of the trail and tried to hold back the tears. For over two weeks I had beenContinue reading “The Pressure”

Wild Woman Spotlight – December

Here’s to 2021. I started Wild Women in the beginning of the year, and although it has grown significantly I will be the first to admit it has been neglected a bit since the 2021 hunting season opened and I was fully wrapped up being in the field. My biggest goals for 2022 are toContinue reading “Wild Woman Spotlight – December”

Wild Woman Spotlight – October

Heather Hazelbaker added a new member post on one of my favorite female hunting pages back in August, along with some gorgeous pictures. Tara, who was featured in last month’s WWS, tagged me and said “we definitely need to read that, woman!” I absolutely LOVE that this network of women who share these passions isContinue reading “Wild Woman Spotlight – October”

Get Out of the Bubble

It’s no secret that I dislike change, but if you’ve been following my posts you may remember that I have been trying to break out of my comfort zone over the last few months, despite my ever growing list of “what ifs” and fears. I had been planning on spending the long weekend Way UpContinue reading “Get Out of the Bubble”

Jigs and Bigs Fishing Report: 09/30/21

I cannot believe that it’s the last day of September; it feels like I was just planning for my long Memorial Day weekend. I have still been preoccupied with getting ready for deer and pheasant season, but I am hoping to get out on my way home a bit over the next week and fish.Continue reading “Jigs and Bigs Fishing Report: 09/30/21”

Wild Woman Spotlight – September

It was April when I reached out to Tara to see if she would be interested in participating in my spotlight post. She had posted on one of the women’s fishing pages about how fishing had saved her life by keeping her active and by giving her some new perspectives in life.  When I reachedContinue reading “Wild Woman Spotlight – September”

Jigs and Bigs Fishing Report: 09/23/21

The first Thursday of fall is here, can you believe it? I have been in full archery season preparation mode, but the Jig Heads are still out on the water!  Andy is out in Oklahoma fishing spending a bunch of time golfing with his son but they went fishing a bunch too! A low pressureContinue reading “Jigs and Bigs Fishing Report: 09/23/21”
