Jigs and Bigs Fishing Report: 10/13/22

Here we are folks, it’s Thursday once again and that means the weekly fishing report!  Personally, I haven’t even looked at a fishing pole since my last saltwater excursion since it’s bow season in Vermont.

Everyone Needs a Cheefu

When I was young I couldn’t pronounce Christopher, so my cousin become Cheefu. To this day, that’s his contact name in my phone.  A few weeks ago I did something I rarely EVER do, I upgraded some gear with a “new to me” bow. I had been shooting the same bow since I was 16Continue reading “Everyone Needs a Cheefu”
