Late fall; the road back

Sep 23, 2010

Depending upon what part of our country you're fishing, the late fall bite is just around the corner or it's still a few weeks away. Regardless, now's the time to start thinking about it.

Match the fall hatch

Sep 16, 2010

Let me say right up front that there are a lot of lures that'll catch bass in the fall. Spinnerbaits, jigs and plastics all have their place when the leaves start to turn. But for me there's no better bass lure at this time of the year than a plug.

The early fall transition

Sep 9, 2010

Let's catch some fall and early winter bass over the next few weeks. We'll start with the early fall transition. I define that concept as the movement of bass from their summer haunts into their fall feeding areas.

Big & bad

Sep 2, 2010

Hey guys, it's the Friday before Labor Day and all is quiet on the fishing front ... for the most part anyway. Next week we're going to turn our attention to the early fall transition, and the week after that we'll talk about which baits you should be throwing to catch those early transition bass.

The truth

Aug 26, 2010

Abu Garcia introduced a new line of fishing rods this year at ICAST. They're named Veritas, after the Latin word for "truth." The name was chosen because we wanted to cut through all the hype and the bull and offer a rod that actually performed at or above its advertising. We wanted to tell the truth.

The Jersey Shore

No, I'm not talking about the MTV reality TV show. I'm talking about our family vacation this summer. It was one of the best ever. We really had a good time.

The BASS postseason

Aug 15, 2010

I've been asked about my thoughts on the new postseason format that BASS is using to determine the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year. I'm going to do that, but before I do, I'm going to ask you to read my entire response; not just a part of it; before you form an opinion about what I think.

A wild week

Jul 22, 2010

Last week was a wild one. We (Becky and I) went to Las Vegas and to ICAST for my sponsors and so we could enjoy a short vacation. This week was all about work, though.

Tough going

Jul 10, 2010

My practice has been tough. Basically Monday and Tuesday were a waste. I didn't develop anything that will help me when the competition starts. Kentucky Lake is a great fishery, but that greatness has a drawback.

Think deep!

Jul 8, 2010

During the summer months, there are always some bass deep. They go there for a number of reasons including food, comfort and oxygen. No matter the reason, you can rest assured that when you find them deep they'll be active and feeding.
