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!

• Review: Wave Worms Tiki Sticks

Tiki Sticks are Senko look alikes infused with something the company calls Molopo (motion lotion potion). It smells like anise to me. They come in a variety of colors. These colors are usually what catches the most attention as some are pretty wild. I prefer the bubble gum/yellow and the black/blue flake. They usually come in packs of 10 and are 5" long.

When browsing alternatives for the Senko, many anglers have found the Tiki Stick to be one of their favorite less expensive look alikes. Compared to the Senko the Tiki Sticks are not as soft and in turn have less action. Fall rates are also different, although with the hook I use, they tend to take a nose dive. I've read that the fall rate is actually slower than the Senko. The Tiki Sticks definitely last longer than the Senko, but they still tear up easier than one would hope. I can usually re-rig the hook and get things working right again to make it last a little longer. They also melt a little better than the original Senko, so quick repairs melting any open holes together is always an option. Like the Senko, I can cut the torn section off and make a miniature version that still works for me. The back of the package also has pictures of various ways to rig this worm. I tend to only fish it Texas rigged and weightless. If you're looking for ways to fish this worm, read the Senko Tips post where I discuss that sort of thing with more depth. Most of the time I like to fish the Tiki Stick by casting, letting it drop and sit, waiting for the tap of a strike.

These worms do catch fish though. I've read about anglers switching to this more durable worm when the Senko bite is on. The Big Bite Baits Trick Stick may take their place in my tackle box if they hold up as well and still catch fish. I've had good experiences with both the Tiki Stick and the Trick Stick and typically have both at my disposal.

What happened to the grasshopper color from the swirl series? It's just different enough to be new at most places I fish. It's the first one I used from the Wave Tiki-Moko Lizard swirl series and until my recent order, the only lizard I knew you made. Just saying, I'd like to see it miraclesly re-appear and be sent to me for retrial. Let me know!!!
