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!

• One More Day

One more day and I'll be on my way home to warmer weather. I've had fishing on the brain for the last week and a half. Today two of the other med students got me talking about fishing again. The guy was asking me about live bait and it got me started on the drop shot. I went wild and talked about baitcasters, my new rod/reel combo purchase at BPS, and my trip to the BPS here in Detroit. Then he asked me about fishing line and that got me talking even more. While I was talking to him, a commercial had a couple of guys by a pond loading stuff into a pick up and a fishing rod was resting against the back of the truck. Oh that's just torture!

With fishing on my mind over the last week, I've been sprucing up my blog. I've made some changes here and there. Let me know if you like the table of contents. It's easy to use if you click around for a while. Clicking the Labels heading inside it will take you back to the full table of contents list.

I have also been thinking about what I'll be using my new combo for. What do you think I should do with it? A 7' MH rod with a 6.3:1 ratio and 10 bearings can be used for a lot of things. I don't know what line I'll put on it first. I know this rig will serve as another spinnerbait rig, but I'm also ready to use jigs on it. I don't know how it will handle soft plastics yet. It can be my C-rig rod. I'm not sure I'll be doing much topwater this time of year. I'll definitely toss some topwater lures around for my review I'll be writing soon. I'll try it out with a lot of different applications to be thorough.

Don't forget I've also got the new items I bought at the BPS here in Detroit. The 3771 tray is probably going to get filled up with plastics I currently have in an old Wilson bag in their original packages. I probably won't be using the Jitterbugs in the immediate future, but the new 1/2oz jig is worth using this time of year and the 8lb Pline CXX is going to get tested on my Prolite with some finesse techniques.
