It seems like every year lately — three to be exact — I find myself writing a column about how I’m up against it, fighting for a spot in next year’s GEICO Bassmaster Classic.
Bass fishing in Central Park is not new to me. I’ve fished the ponds and lakes there several times over the years.
BASSfest is a real chance to get some good information about bass fishing and the outdoors lifestyle.
There are three basic styles of grubs — curly-tail, boot-tail and straight-tail.
A grub will catch any predator that swims. That includes stripers, wipers, crappie, bluegill and flatheads.

Barometric pressure is important, but it’s also complicated.
I’d like to suggest some things that will always be helpful regardless of when you go fishing or what conditions you face when you do go.
Mike found good fish in practice but conditions changed. He tried to change with them and was successful for three days, but then things didn’t work out on Sunday.
