    Just found an interesting article on fishing lakes, written by Tyler Laurenti.

    Some good advice for the folks just testing the waters for the first time.

    This site just keeps getting better and better.

    Good info the article.

    I'm almost ashamed to admit this-
    I think I can attribute a lot of my success on stillwaters (mediocre at best) to two fishing shows I watched as a kid. The shows were Fishing with Roland Martin and The Orlando Wilson Fish Show (thanks to TBS). Almost every episode was fishing for bass, but I still use a lot of what I learned watching those shows, fishing for trout in lakes (reading structure, lake and wind currents, fish travel lanes, ambush points...)
    Son!

    Whatever happened to Tyler? I know he moved east because of work. He does have some special intel I'd like to get updated.

    Sorry to say, I do not know the Gentleman. I ran across the article by doing a Google search that brought me right back here to our forum and his article. Like I said, this is a great resource. More knowlege in these pages than the average bear will find.

    Maybe I should take up his mission. I am certain that I would not be capable of filling his waders.

    You would be off the beaten path as some of the waters he fished are walk in only.

    I agree Paul! Even though I hate bass with a passion the bass pro's take it to another level. When it comes to braking a lake down and the sonar and GPS map usage I pay very close attention!

    My knew fish finder with good sonar and GPS paid for itself last year!

    Tyler moved to New Mexico I believe. He fished with me here on my local lakes once while he was writing the article. I met him in the Seeps at one point where he showed me how to solve the mystery of those desert lakes. He certainly knew his stuff. I don't know if he ever published his spiny ray report or not. I hope so. We fished Shiner Lake in late spring one year and must have caught 100 bluegills apiece on flies right at the surface. Some of the older guys here knew him well and fished with him often.

    I just ran across another report he made over on WashingtonLakes. com. He must be a heck of a fisherman. Lots of good info.

    Now I am getting the fevor again. Might have to go stand in the rain tomorrow.
