    Kayak fishing is one of the fastest-growing segments of the fishing community, and this angler knows why.

    Dwayne Walley could have said it was the unique angle it gives him in the marsh to spot tailing redfish.

    He also could have pointed out how exciting it is to see a big bass blow up on a frog from not much higher than water level.

    There might be less vegetation in Aliceville Lake these days, but there are plenty of bass to be had on this Tenn-Tom Waterway border lake. Here’s how to get those big bites.

    Dense fog smothered the Aliceville Pool of the Tenn-Tom at sunrise, giving an eerie glow to the running lights of the boats stuck in the harbor awaiting safe running conditions.

    Many were participants in a local tournament, antsy to get to their honey holes and start catching bass.

    When fish transition to their summer haunts, jumbo worms can be the key to convincing big fish to feed. Here’s how the pros use them to build limits.

    He’s not the fastest guy on the court, nor is he the flashiest. The center, the big man in the middle, has certain responsibilities, and when called on for particular duties, that size and strength play to his advantage.

    It’s never too early to start planning — or planting — for deer-hunting success. Here are some thoughts on prepping for the coming season.

    Did the headline of this story have you thinking, “Dude, are you kidding? It’s just June, way too early to be contemplating fall wildlife food plots.” 

    Quite the contrary now is the perfect time to start planning what you want to do this fall, especially if the results you got last year on your wildlife plots were not exactly what you had hoped to see. 

    Tippah County Lake might be less than 200 acres in size, but don’t let that diminutive size fool you — whether you’re looking for monster redears or quality bass, this MDWFP lake has it all.

    To the Chickasaw Indians, “Tippah” was a word meaning “cut off,” and was a fitting name for a creek between ridges in extreme North Mississippi because it “cut off” the east and west sides of the region before emptying into the Tallahatchie River.

    Head to little Tippah County Lake and Aliceville for some great fishing this month, but don’t forget that coastal action also kicks into high gear this month.
