I‘m a liberal leaning outdoorsman attempting to open the minds of right wingers to the idea that libs fish too. Anglers come from all walks of life, left, right, and center. Not everyone who fishes for bass is a redneck fond of Nascar, country music, and religiosity. Expect posts about largemouth bass fishing, techniques, reviews of lures and other products, but not any condemnable conservative rants. I hope to inspire the online angler community to dial down rhetoric which will do more harm than good to our sport.

Getting Around:

If you are looking for something in particular, use the Labels below, the Blog Archive, or the search box at the top to find what you need. When using the search box, simple search terms will get the best results. One word is often better than three. Searching for "Pflueger" will give you more results than "Pflueger baitcasting reel." Use these three features to your advantage.

Labels are relevant tags or keywords. Click on a label to view other related posts organized by date. For example, clicking on the label spinnerbaits will take you to all the other posts with the tag spinnerbaits and the label largemouth bass denotes any fishing report where I caught a bass. Labels are listed below, first by frequency and then in alphabetical order. Labels are also tagged below each individual post. When viewing by Label, 20 results are listed per page. Click "Older Posts" to see more posts with that Label. In addition, some entries may also have a list of related posts at the bottom you might also find useful.

Anyone can comment, so go ahead and post. I'd like to hear what you think. There is a "Post a Comment" link below every single entry. Comments are still moderated for approval. Anything inappropriate will be rejected. This also helps cut down on spam.

• Cross Lake Report 10/12/2007

Cross Lake. Shreveport, Louisiana

Started fishing around 1:30pm. I had planned on fishing off a point on the north side that has a slight drop off, but chose to hit wind blown banks instead. I found a spot with leaning trees and cat tails, dropped anchor, and threw a spinnerbait and a red rattle trap. First fish was in the slot and came on a rattle trap in about 2-4ft of water. A few casts later, another bass followed the rattle trap up to the boat, but turned away. I moved on down the bank avoiding trees with bee's nests working a spinnerbait and following up with a Lake Fork craw dragged slow along the bottom. I had one bite on the craw, but it came loose. Found a pocket I never knew existed and fished the first windy turn into that pocket. Had a small dink hooked on the spinnerbait, but it spit it out in the air. Had another decent bass chase the spinnerbait further back up in the pocket, but I guess the boat spooked it away. Caught my second bass along the pads in the pocket, but it was only a lil one. I did have one break off mid cast with the Gamma Copolymer and tied Yo Zuri on in its place. The only other hit probably came from a gar over on the west end. Water temps hovered around 80 except near where the line broke where there was some shade cooling the water down to about 77. I called it quits around 6:30pm. Looks like the cooler weather is shaking things up.
