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 10/20/2007 & 10/21/2007

Cross Lake. Shreveport, Louisiana

On Saturday, I fished in the evening. I hit the same spot I've been checking out the last few trips and worked my way along the bank heading east. The wind was knocking me around pretty good, so I ducked into that little pocket I've mentioned in previous posts and was able to catch a small bass off some pads. I left that pocket and headed back north along a less windy bank drifting and casting into the bank. Caught a nice little fat one off a tree. Both bass came on a Strike King mini spinnerbait with a grub trailer. Water temps were in the lower 70s.

On Sunday, I was hoping the wind would not be so bad in the morning. I was wrong. If anything, it was worse. I was bouncing around all over the place out there. I hit the same spots using a rattle trap in the thick of all the waves, but the trolling motor just kept coming up above every wave. I meandered back towards that small pocket again. A fellow angler had actually just popped in there and hammered back out again 10 minutes later. I thought I could pick up something he may have missed and I was right. Instead of heading for the pads to the left where I caught my first bass yesterday, I hit the shadows on the right. The sun was not high enough to hit this spot behind the tree line yet. I worked my new Terminator T-1 spinnerbait in the back corner a few times and had a hard hit take me for a quick ride. I lifted out a 2lb slot fish (about 14 1/2 inches). Had to throw it back. It was a fatty though. I turned back around and cast into the wind along that same line on my way out of the pocket and picked up an under in the trees just on the outer edge of the pocket on the same spinnerbait. The wind was too much for me and I quit around noon. Water temps were 70-71 in most places.
