Our Recommended Links and Fishing Information

At Luck O' The Irish, we want our customers to be the most informed about what's out there when it comes to fishing. Our recommended list of fishing sites gives you a wide array of local and national exposure to the things you need to make your next fishing experience the best it can be. We will continue to expand our review information in order to make sure you have the best information that out there.

I have been a professional fishing guide for 14 years now and I have seen a lot of products come and go that were just a flash in the pan. I have also seen products that are an innovation that forever changes my line of work. Examples of these products are side imaging sonar and the Minn Kota i-Pilot trolling motor. Now there are Amphibia sunglasses to add to that list of innovations.

The clarity of the lenses and the patented coatings make my day on the water much easier in several ways. One way is the lack of fatigue my eyes experience and another is my ability to see deeper in the water with much more definition. The ability to see spawning fish and watch fish come to the net is greatly enhanced by Amphibia sunglasses!

No matter if you are on the water 6 days a week or just the weekends, Amphibia sunglasses will make your time on the water more enjoyable and productive.

I have been fishing since I was 5 years old and now at 51 that means I have been fishing for 46 years. I have fished with all types of rods during that time from inexpensive ones to rods costing in the hundreds of dollars.

None of those rods compares to a TFO for several reason. TFO rods are strong, light and sensitive beyond their reassonable pricing and then there is the warranty. I have never found a manufacturer of any product that so believes in their product as to offer the warranty that TFO does.

No fishing rods "catches" fish, but TFO rod s give you the edge when it come to strength and sensitivity. If fishing is about enjoying the experience and I know it is, then TFO fishing/fly rods greatly add to that experience.

Lead Babies Slabs
I am a professional fishing guide so I rely on tackle manufacturer's to supply my clients and I with lures that work. Lead Babies slabs work!!! My clients and I have caught many fish, including double-digit fish on Lead Babies slabs.

I fish almost exclusively with slabs year round and the wide selection of Lead Babies slabs make it easy to find a slab to fish in any condition. Whether I am fishing in the spring with a small shad imitation or mid summer with a perch colored slab, Lead Babies has the color pattern I need. Lead Babies slabs come in a wide array of sizes as well, so it is easy to "match the hatch". The average heavy weight of Lead Babies smallest slabs makes fishing them easy, even in high wind conditions.

So, if you are a novice or a professional fisherman and you use slabs - don't leave the dock without Lead Babies slabs in your tackle box.

Jigum Jigs
I really appreciate Matthew putting me on his Pro-Staff recently. He and I collaborated on a weightless jig on a #3 O'Shaunghnessy hook for a Tag-A-Long above a slab.

I have used tube jigs and they work okay but they get destroyed pretty quick and I've used regular flies and the same thing happens to them. The way Matthew make these Tag-A-Longs though they last forever! He makes them tough and being a fisherman he puts some great colors together.
