The heat of summer can lead to some great fishing, but it can also make things miserable out on the water.
I had a wild time fishing last week across Topeka.
I decided to start out by walking along Shunga Creek, hoping to see some bass in the deeper spots after the rains we’ve been having.
During the early season before the spawn, crappie and panfish bites can be difficult to detect at times with traditional methods.

I received a cool email from Rick Towers recently regarding the Shunga Creek.
As you may recall, I wrote a column earlier this year about my experience fishing on the Shunga — and my surprise when I actually caught some decent bass on it.
