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 2/19/2008

Cross Lake. Shreveport, Louisiana

I took the boat out around 11:15am and started by fishing trees in the northwest section of the lake. I saw a few other boats out there, but it looked like everybody was having a slow day. Around 1:30pm, I went over to the southwest corner behind the trees and caught two fish. The first was a chain pike that came up next to the boat and attacked the lure just before I was going to take it out of the water. I was able to set the hook and pull, but the pike came loose and went flying through the air into the boat. A while later I caught a 2lb slot bass not far from where I caught the pike. Both came on a Watermelon Baitfish Swimblade. Water temps were 58-59 degrees and the water clarity was pretty dismal. Most of the water I eliminated today was murky, except for the water near where I caught the two fish. Over there the water was somewhat stained, but I could see a lot more. I scared a lot of fish away and had a horrible afternoon casting into tree limbs and stumbling around in the boat. I called it quits around 5:15pm. I'm not going to get many more chances to fish before I leave next week.
