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.

Thanks for stopping by!

• Protect your boat cover

The windshield on most boats can be on the sharp side. When you tie down your boat cover, the windshield produces tension, pushes up against the cover, and over time can cause significant damage. You could use any number of a variety of things to protect your boat cover from that sharp edge. I'll give you just one that's cheap and simple.

All you need is a simple popular water toy and something to cut it with. I'm talking about those foam sticks kids play with in the pool that are about four or five feet long. Make sure it has a hole in the center of the tube that runs the full length. It's helpful to have for this project. You don't even have to buy one most of the time. People take those toys out on the lake and lose them. The one I found could be cut exactly in half and left a piece just the right length to slide onto the windshield. I gave the other half to my neighbor to use on his boat.

I used my Swiss Army knife saw blade to cut it in half leaving a nice smooth edge. Then I cut a line down the entire length of the foam making sure to cut down into the center hole that also extends the full length of the foam tube. The tube will slide right onto the windshield, bend snugly in place, and protect your boat cover. Just take it off and stow it away somewhere safe when you take the boat out. Here are some pics.
