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!

• Thinkin about my gear

I've been thinking about my gear just sitting there in the house. It hasn't been used in two months. I left all that line on the reels and I'm thinking I will have to respool before doing anything. The last time I went without fishing like this, I had to get accustomed to the weight of my rods again. I might also have to buy some more P-Line Halo before I head out. I don't remember how much I've got left on the spool. I also think I'll swap out the 12lb Gamma Copolymer for some 12lb P-Line CXX for a change and see how it goes. The boat also hasn't been used over those two months. It might be time for a tune up. Not good at all. I'll play it by ear.

The other thing on my mind has to do with the Thursday night tourneys taking place on Cross this time of year. The bass have to be feeling the pressure by now. That might make things really tough. There is no telling how tight lipped they'll be. Imagine 70-100 boats hitting spots across an approx. 8500 acre lake almost every Thursday since mid-March. That's not counting all the anglers out there prefishing. Let's see how many nosy jerks I can bump into out there when I get back, eh?

Should I stick to hitting docks this time around? After they sprayed all this hydrilla and killed it off, I would think the cypress trees would be teaming with fish looking for a little cover. We're probably in early post-spawn right now. I have no idea what water temps have been over the last week or two. I can't wait to get back on the water.

Things will be quiet around here for a couple of days. I'll be on the road soon. Don't catch them all. Leave some for me.
