Bassmaster's dedicated fans submit photos of their 'Lunkers.'
I'm continually surprised at how aggressive bass are in cold water.I know bass will hit crankbaits and spinnerbaits when the water is in the mid to lower 40s.
It's funny how anglers can get so geeked up about an upcoming fishing trip that we play it out in our minds as to how we're going to catch them. When I'm headed out on a fun fishing trip to a place I haven't been for awhile, I have an idea of how I think — and hope — I'm going to catch them. But it doesn't always work out that way.

Twelve years ago, the Federal government finally reacted to concerns from anglers and fish farmers and implemented control measures for the double-crested cormorant.
Preliminary findings suggest that Largemouth Bass Virus (LMBV) once again has damaged a bass fishery, this time at Kerr Lake/Buggs Island on the Virginia-North Carolina border.
This is a special week for me. It's time to go smallmouth fishing in northern Michigan. I feel sorry for my bass fishing buddies who live in the South and don't get to experience what we enjoy every fall. Let me put it in perspective: Michigan's fall smallmouth fishing is like the first day of deer season, the opening of the NFL and your birthday all wrapped in one. It's that extraordinary.
Now they're even. Last year, Nicholas shot his first deer with a gun before Jackson. Both boys got deer during gun season, but Nicholas was first. Well, last weekend, Jackson shot his first buck with a bow before Nicholas. Don't get me wrong. We don't promote competition between the boys, but there's always a little razzing and one-upmanship that goes on between brothers, especially 13-year-old twins.

Today's bass boats are extremely well built, but they need attention to keep them looking good and functioning properly.
