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!

• Bait Monkey Found Me In Detroit

It all started when I received an email from Bass Pro Shops about the Thanksgiving sales going on. I noticed a rod/reel combo that to me, looked like an awesome deal. I had a feeling it was a location specific item, but since there is a BPS about 30 minutes north of here, I decided to venture out into the horrible rainy weather we're having and try to find this reel. Yes, I'm being hush hush about the combo because I want to make sure I'm able to get one. Once I know it's secure, I'll talk about it. No telling who reads this stuff ya know. Anyway, I found the store and walked over to the reel counter. The guy said they didn't have it. I asked some questions about what additional specs the reel might have and what rod might be comparable to the one in this limited edition combo. He was very helpful, but since the reel wasn't there and I still had time to kill, I started looking around at other things.

I stopped myself before things got out of hand, but I walked out with some 8lb test Pline CXX, a 1/2oz red/black BPS Enticer jig, a 1/4oz black jitterbug, a 3/8oz weedless jitterbug, a spare Plano 3771 stow-away tray for my tackle box, and for my mother, a 1/4oz green/black spotted jitterbug and frog pattern tiny torpedo. Some of those are hard to find back home and you can't beat a 6 percent sales tax compared to 9 percent at home either.

So that means eventually there will be a review on here for Pline CXX and maybe one for the enticer jig. I'll probably add to the jitterbug post once spring rolls around and I can go back to topwater lures. If I can get someone back home to buy the rod/reel combo for me, you'll see a review on that too.
