It’s been a crazy year. For the first time in my 49 years, I’ve seen Dogwood and Redbuds blooming at the same time.
A couple of groups of guys have been coming in the store the past few weeks talking about a new technique they’ve been using to catch the bigger smallmouth, two at a time. I’ve never heard of it before, and it sounds crazy, but they claim it works.
Right out of the package, a lot of spinnerbaits are good, but few are as good as they could be for your waters, your conditions and your bass. Make the changes that lead to success.
Forget the calendar, Mother Nature is telling the smallmouths that spring is here.
Nature has certain cues that are nearly infallible when it comes to signalling the seasons.
Every time I write something about what’s happening things change. If I write about cold weather, it turns warm. That kind of fast weather change can make for tough fishing.
Because of the mild winter, it looks like it’s going to be an early spring. That means we’d better change our tactics if we expect to catch them.
Let's talk about the bass binge that happens around the country the first few times warm rainwater rushes into the lakes and rivers.
In the last two columns, we talked about how to deal with fronts when you’re picking your lures. So, it only makes sense in this final column to talk about how to find specific spots as the smallmouth move back and forth.
The weather is a little closer to normal (cold) than it was last week. I should have known that it would turn cold as soon as I wrote something about warm weather and warm water.
