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: BPS Enticer Jigs

I must admit I have only used these jigs consistently over the last couple of months. I cannot compare them to other products because these jigs are really the first I've ever used fishing for bass. I'm fairly new to jig fishing and my confidence in them is still very low. All of the ones I own weigh 1/2oz aside from one 3/8oz in blue. I have them in blue, white/black, and black/red. I use Lake Fork Tackle Pig Claws for trailers which are strongly scented with garlic. A LFT Craw cut short stands up nicely as a jig trailer too. I've also purchased some V&M craw trailers and plan on trying out some Paca Chunks one of these days.

The skirts on the Enticer jigs are 40 strand skirts, but the bands holding them on have broken on every single one except for the newest one. I recommend tying the skirts on before the summer heat gets to the bands and they break on you. Without the band, the action of the skirt is a lot less ordinary in my opinion. The rattles are necessary for some anglers and ineffectual to others. The rattles can break off easy too. The hook is a strong 2X Mustad hook. The only modification I've made has been trimming the weed guard short so that it does not get in the way, but not so much that it is no longer weedless. These jigs do tend to pick up a fair amount of hydrilla anyway. I cannot comment on how these jigs fall. The lake I fish isn't clear enough to do a good visual inspection. The paint on the jig head has yet to chip after being pitched repeatedly against cypress trees.

For $1.99, you can't expect a lot though. I'm sure there are better quality jigs out there, but if you need an inexpensive jig to start out on like I'm doing, I suppose you can't go wrong with the BPS Enticer jig. I have yet to catch my first jig bass. I can't say my diligence is unwavering, but I do try.

Please go here and read that post as I no longer support nor shop at Bass Pro Shops.
