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!

• Rigging A Jig Trailer

Okay, I've noticed my craw jig trailer post getting hits from people searching for how to actually add a trailer to a jig hook. You can either slide the plastic craw trailer on the way I did in that post so the body and arms sit low or rig as pictured below. I tend to run the hook up through the middle of the body (pic #2) so the trailer sits on the bend of the hook higher up and so that it hangs there giving off a little more action. You can also rig a plain round head jig with the trailer Texsposed. If your trailer is a good size, you can even rig it at an angle so the claws stick up (pic #3). I do that with my LFT Pig Claws. What kind of trailer to use is a whole new issue and open to some debate. I like Paca Chunks and Lake Fork Pig Claws for regular jigs and V&M Baby V Chunks for finesse jigs. Pork trailers are beyond my realm of knowledge at this point and there are tips pork enthusiasts can key in on that I cannot begin to explain.
