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 12/7/2007

Cross Lake. Shreveport, Louisiana

Started fishing around 11am. I got a slow start and had to wait at the launch for another guy to get his boat in. Lots of people parked at the Fleming launch this morning. I guess the crappie bite has been on lately. Water temps out of Fleming were around 53.

Anyway, started fishing out in 8-9ft of water with a c-rigged LFT lizard and a shakey head rigged Renegade worm. I probably spent an hour working around in a circle. I watched the gulls fly in and land on the duck blind frame near me. I also ran a DT-10 around dragging the bottom, but I still couldn't get anything to bite. No blips showed up on the sonar either.

Gave up there and went over to my spot between the islands. Someone was already there. Went back east to that small cove. Somebody was there too. I worked the bank to the left. The water temperature was about 54 degrees. I drifted with what wind I had tossing a spinnerbait at cypress trees and letting it drop before the retrieve. Nothing yet. I drifted towards the bank and noticed hydrilla still alive and well beneath the trolling motor. I tossed the small Strike King Mini King spinnerbait over the top of that stuff and came up with a dink. Did the same thing on the opposite side of the boat in about 4ft of water and hooked two good fish. Switched to the larger Terminator T1 spinnerbait and caught one more. I motored out towards the center and worked the spinnerbait a little more, but decided to turn back for the bank. I trolled the spinnerbait and caught another.

I should have stayed in that spot and fished some more, but the wind came up suddenly and pushed further north. I went with it and kept tossing both spinnerbaits, but didn't get any more bites. I called it quits around 3pm.

Went to Bass Pro this evening and picked up some more Carolina Rig weights.

What worked today?
BPS Prolite, 12lb P-line Halo, 3-4ft of water, 54 degrees, blue/chart Strike King Mini King spinnerbait
