I think there’s something wrong with this bass but cain’t put my finger on it. You see anything?
Dude said he was fishing worms….
– Former Elitist Charlie Hartley talkin‘ ’bout bein’ a bassin’ fan as much as bein’ an Elite angler. He’s bummed he unqualified for the Elites…but Little Sweet’ll make it better:
This is a 10.51 — look how healthy that fish is:
> Derek Mong has been on an astounding run at Toledo Bend in about the last month. His five best bass weighed-in at a hefty 47.23 lbs. And he’s doing all of his damage almost exclusively with [the swimbait].
> The five best bass Mong has taken on Toledo Bend…since Oct. 30 weighed 10.51 lbs, 9.74 lbs, 9.14 lbs, 9.10 lbs and an 8.74-lber.
> …targeting areas between the Indian Mounds and Six Mile for big fish. “The big fish in these locations are known to target bluegills. At this time of the year when the gizzard shad go deeper, the bream will be shallower and that’s what these fish want.”
This is making me want to run out and throw one right now….
First of all, this dude needs a bigger house…not. Second, I love this stuff:
Young dude was a big bassin’ fan, many bassin’ folks followed his progress and prayed for him. RIP bassin’ brother.
#1 in views. Zell has a lot of fans, paid a lot of entry fees over the years, but didn’t requalify. Not sure what the right answer is there.
…on Bassmaster.com. Cool, he’s one of the best.
That’s a big ol’ pond yo.
Wish my graph looked like that…once….
He doesn’t have 25 sponsors anymore but does have 25 hunting dogs….
7. Strike King gets two FLWers.
Good to read. Says he’s going to get more focused on the FLWs.
Dang it Overstreet you told me my dog ran away! I want him back man! lol
Lake O’ the Pines, Cedar Springs Ramp, Sunday Dec 13. Please help the family if you can.
Doesn’t say much. Was it at the Sealy derby in Oct? Not sure.
Not scheduled but sounds like might be the only solution.
Probly cuz no one’s ever heard of Yamamoto baits out west….
Drawing for all TrophyCatch entrants, which is like TX’s ShareLunker program.
Not really a review but a good bait:
> Once a fish eats the bait, they seldom throw the hook….
Git it here on TackleWarehouse.com.
…fishing the B.A.S.S. Team Champeenship. Love it. That’s who we are mang!
Still lookin’ fer:
If you can help, just reply to this-here email or hit me up on Facebook:
1. Someone who KNOWS Kentucky Lake, what’s hot/not bait- and bass-wise. Someone who’s on top of it and can tell that story fast in words.
2. Same for California.
3. What’s the best bass fishing forum in your state? Let me know.
4. Awesome bassin’ memes. Got an idea? Make it and send it — no retreads! If I dig it and it gets on the Blaster, you get a few baits. Don’t ask me what — I’ll just raid my stash of unopened stuff. I got a lot — too much!
Tip of the Day
Tidbits from his Bassmaster.com column:
> Another way I like to fish my jig is to cast at the wall and bring it straight out towards the boat. I drop it right up against the wall and bring it out so that it stops on every ledge or shelf. And I make sure it drops off of every one as well. I do this until my jig is out in the deepest water there is around. I call that letting it fall off into the abyss.
> A lot of times you’ll find wood on bluff walls. You can’t always see it, but I assure you it’s there. When you run into it make sure you fish it all, regardless of what bait you’re using. Bass will hold on the wood. It’s different, much like a transition.
> It doesn’t take much wood, either. Just a couple of small, spindly limbs will often be enough. And remember, the walls are somewhat vertical. A tree or big limb will stick way out if the big end catches on the wall and swings out towards open water. Don’t push in too close.
Quote of the Day
…some big name power-fishermen have been off their game. The field is getting more and more effective at covering water, and the finesse guys are having better showings on a consistent basis.
– Elitist Russ Lane talkin‘ ’bout the Elites. Interesting observation. Not sure it’s true, but interesting.
