This video features Jacob and Hannah Bretthorst of Harker Heights, TX, on a S.K.I.F.F. fishing trip while their dad serves in Afghanistan.

This video, filmed partly on the water and partly at my home, explains how the S.K.I.F.F. program works.

This video features a bit of downrigging and some livebait fishing with Austin from Copperas Cove, TX, while his dad served in Afghanistan.

This video taken in February of 2012 features brothers Tyler and Mason fishing for white bass and largemouth using slab spoons jigged vertically in cold water.

This video was taken during the Spring of 2009 as the white bass in Stillhouse Hollow began to stage heavily for the forthcoming spawn.
