It’s Christmas Day. I hope Santa Clause was good to everyone, and to those you care about. That’s important, you know. And, I hope everyone takes a minute or two — actually, we should all take a lot more time than that — to reflect of the real meaning of Christmas.
Volunteers from Mohawk Valley Bassmasters and others in the Connecticut B.A.S.S. Federation Nation collected $6,000 worth of toys so local children would have presents to open this weekend.
Bass anglers are pretty specific with their wish list for Santa Claus. Loved ones, beware: Many anglers are dreaming of some pretty big presents under the tree.
You may not know it, but right now is a great time to catch a giant smallmouth bass. My friend, the late Billy Westmoreland — the best smallmouth angler who ever lived — hooked the biggest smallmouth of his life on Christmas Day in the early 1970s.
