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!

• Terminator Tiny T

I'm a big fan of the Strike King Mini King spinnerbait. Downsizing to that spinnerbait has been fun. After having such a great experience with the larger Terminator spinnerbaits, I thought I would see if the Tiny T would be able to compete against my Mini King.

The Tiny T I bought weighs 1/8 oz and has a single Oklahoma blade. They are also available in tandem Oklahoma and tandem willow configurations. The Tiny T has the same type of titanium SnapBack wire that keeps from bending so the lure runs true. The skirt is made of silicone and is easily interchangeable (aka Quick Skirt). The hook is a Mustad needle point hook. 

I've already chipped the paint on the head a little. The skirt occasionally lacks rhythm, but the same can be said for its big brother. The blade doesn't always spin, but when it does, you can feel it especially when slow rolling. The Tiny T is easier to slow roll than the Mini King and swims deeper too. I'm not sure if that's due to the style of blade or the wire frame because they both weigh 1/8oz. You can burn the Tiny T, but the blade is more likely to stop turning. Sometimes the whole spinnerbait starts rolling around in circles. That could be from the knot I use.

I've caught crappie, a few bass, and even a chain pickerel on the Tiny T so far. I like it, but I still think the Mini King has it beat. I still need to spend more time on the water using this spinnerbait. If you ever feel like downsizing to a smaller frame spinnerbait, go with either the Tiny T or the Mini King.
