    Panoptix: Ahead of the game

    When Garmin released its much-anticipated Pantoptix sonar a couple of years ago, it garnered the attention of many anglers in all walks of the fishing world. It was touted as being the future of fishing sonar in an industry that already has side-scan, down-scan, and nearly lifelike imagery.

    Tailor your D-I-Y tackle to fit your needs

    Making your own fishing tackle can be a rewarding hobby, while at the same time allowing the crappie angler to tailor his baits to what the fish want or to better catch fish.

    Snapper season to end Friday

    Mississippi’s recreational fishing season for red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico will end at 11:59 p.m. on Friday (Aug. 17), which, as expected, means fishermen will reach the annual quota — 135,149 pounds — prior to the scheduled season closure of Sept. 3.

    Head to the Tombigbee River for August bass

    I like to fish rivers for bass in August, because they always have some current moving, and fish like that. The Tombigbee River that divides Alabama and Mississippi is one of my favorite rivers for August bassing. I’ll start fishing at the Columbus pool and also fish the Aliceville pool.

Although we will have to contend with this unwanted invader for a long time to come, some new information suggests zebra mussels may benefit fisheries as well as harm them.

    Hot weather, fish high water

    Temperatures soar over the peak summer months across the southeast, with daytime temperatures in the 90s almost every day. Anglers looking to fish during the best conditions should look at tide charts and be ready to take advantage of rising water if they want to bust a limit of inshore targets.
