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!

• Cross Lake Report 2/11/2008

Cross Lake. Shreveport, Louisiana

I started fishing around 3:45pm off the pier. I picked two up right away on a Tiki Stick in the same two spots I've caught fish the last few days. After that, I hopped in the little boat and caught two more bass and a channel cat. The last bass I caught weighed 3lbs 3oz. I did cast back to that same tree and hooked up with another bite, perhaps the same fish, although it felt a lot stronger. It threw the hook before I could get a glimpse. I didn't weigh the catfish, but I would guess it went 2lbs easy. Yeah, all of these fish bit a Tiki Stick, even the catfish. I've caught catfish on Senko type baits in the past too. After that catfish, the bite just died. I guess that was around 6pm. The sun had gone down and the wind picked up. I used the same technique that has worked the last few days. Just toss it out there, let it fall, and make small twitches followed by a lift or drag reeling up any slack in the line. You'll feel the fish tap and then wait until it takes the bait before setting the hook, which could be right off the bat or after a few nibbles. Most of the bass I've been catching have had a good gut on them. I think they might be the early spawners. Time to get out there and find some a little bigger.

Those are some awesome pictures! I usually am able to catch beauties like those on my Sevylor when I go in the summer time. I just hate going when it's super hot.
