After getting mostly skunked last week while trout fishing at Lake Shawnee, I was determined to come back this week and get a nice one.
Review: Aqua-Vu fishing cameras great for locating, identifying groups of suspending fish near structure
When anglers sit out on the water, they tend to do a lot of guesswork about what’s going on below.
Sonar equipment takes a lot of that guesswork out of the equation, but if you’re not on a bass boat then you’re probably not using it unless you buy a handheld fish finder like the iBobber or Deeper, which have received somewhat mixed reviews from anglers for their accuracy.

You may remember a brief note in my column last week about a rare badger spotted by Mike and Karen Lietz near Meriden. This week, their daughter-in-law, Debby, submitted several photos to corroborate the story.
For quite some time, I had been posting submitted photographs of deer, turkeys and other animals captured on trail cameras to my Rouse Outdoors blog on CJOnline.
I’ve come to the realization that they are more likely to be seen by outdoors enthusiasts if they are listed in the actual Outdoors section of our website, so I’m going to be running them as regular columns from now on with the header ”Trail Camera Trophies.” I’ll likely post some of the photographs in the print section, as well, so keep your eyes peeled for some great, candid shots of nature’s delights.
