3. KVD got a new hair deal?
Makes your hair come back, looks like it works great:
Hahaha! Dang man I WISH I had that hair…back….
4. FLWer Josh Douglas used an ice fishing rod at Champlain.
Guess that’s what happens when your head accidentally gets run over by a wheelbarrow?
He was fishin’ TRDs, and that whole leanin’ over the boat deal was part of how he was fishing. If this is the start of a new trend — micro rods and baits — I’m gonna fill half my basement with Twinkies and nail myself in. You are welcome to join me.
5. FL: TN vet got a boat overhaulin’ at ICAST.
Courtesy of Minny Kota/Humminbird — pretty dang cool:
> “I don’t know that I feel worthy but I feel awfully blessed,” said David Lowrie. “The stuff that was on my boat was a lot older — I had coveted a Spot-Lock for a long time, and you know, it just wasn’t in the budget because I focus on other things.
> “I focus on the kids and the state program — I don’t focus on me that much. I’m going to be able to take the kids out on an improved boat and improve their chances of catching fish. It’s an unbelievable blessing.”
Looks like Zaldain took him out and showed him how to use all the stuff. Little tussle when he got on the fish and wouldn’t let David on the trolling motor…lol just kiddin’:
6. Here’s the MLF/BPTer Redcrest Champeenship field.
MS River outta La Crosse, WI, Aug 21-25. Top 30 dudes in the points, only one TOTAL surprise in there….
HAHAHA just messin’ with ya BPTers!
Randy Howell was the first man out:
> …I probably would have pushed a little harder if I knew that it was going to come down to one more fish at the end of the season.
Word is after Randy said that he had to sleep on the couch for a week…. 🙂
7. MO: Sounds like Bass Feeshn HOF induction will be Oct 3.
8. AL kayaker got flesh-eating bacteria in freshwater.
Seems to be a growing salty thing, which is a little scary, but if it gets into fresh that’s even scarier.
9. How Airrus Rods let the world know its feelings about Mike Long.
In that Airrus post it says the company had Mike Long signature rods, which it then donated to a kids fishing program. More on Airrus feelin’s in this article.
10. Bassmaster vid crew won some awards.
Wasn’t gonna include it cuz of the hype, but want to say a big congrats especially to Z and Mercer for each getting a moose…which gives me an excuse to show a Canadian Uber:
Hahaha much love fellers!
11. Rapala’s a new sponsor of the ACA college trail.
Rapala, VMC and Sufix brands. Get some action!
12. TX: Vexus Boats will be at the Dallas Boat Expo THIS WEEKEND.
Even if you’re not in the market, go there, get a tour and get your mind blown. The VX is all that plus your own KFC franchise, if you know what I mean….
13. Check the new Skeeter FXR 20.
More pics on its Facebook. Comes in white/red, red/white or white/red. Kidding….
Don’t think I see it on the Skeeter website?? Little more info here — not much but says it comes in a 21 too. Boats supposed to be at dealers in Aug.
> Iowa anglers fished 10.50 million days in 2018 according to a recent survey conducted by Responsive Management, compared to 8.30 million days in 2007.
??? That means the 10,000 peeps livin’ in IA fished 1,050 days each?? Maybe IA pheasants fish too? HAHAHA IA bass-heads!
15. Great Lakes water levels finally coming down?
Record highs in June for Superior, St. Clair, Erie and Ontario.
16. AL boating deaths way up this year.
Dang take care folks:
> “In my 24 years of doing this, I’ve never seen anything like it,'” said Capt. Gary Buchanan, the commander of the AL Law Enforcement Agency’s Marine Patrol. “Some have happened at night, some during the day, some have involved one boat, some two boats and alcohol has been a factor in some. It’s all over the spectrum.”
McClelland Was Rarely In The Right Place
Kinda funny-soundin’ but also tough…and honest. Here’s Mike talkin’ ’bout the ups and downs of his career in a new ReelFaith vid:
“Bass often get stressed by being in a fisherman’s livewell too long without getting sufficient air.”
– From a post talking a little about delayed mortality. Not an expert, but believe that “too long” should 100% not be “the” factor. Water temp, boat rides/weather, release areas (water quality, water temp, depth, time of day, etc) have a lot to do with safe release of bass…which was invented by Al Gore AND Boyd Duckett…hahaha Boyd!
Any bass in Lake Placid? If so, anyone know any guides there? Gonna be there for a lacrosse deal for my son, hopin’ to find some dumb fish…. If you know anyone pls hit me back….
