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 Report 4-3-09

Tried fishing off the pier early on. The thing is, the second I grabbed my gear and looked out back, there was a boat fishing along the trees working its way toward the pier. I went ahead and walked out, had a word with him, and gave the subtle hint that I'd like to be able to fish off my own pier. Anyway, I didn't see much going on within casting distance and couldn't get any bites. Dragged in lots of gunk though.

So I loaded the small boat and pitched a finesse jig to trees. Had one good bite. Weighed in just shy of 4lbs at 3lb 15oz. Caught it around 7:20pm. The stain in the water wasn't quite as bad as it's been the past few days probably thanks to the most recent rain. Whenever we get a good downpour, the shallow water stays clear for about two or three days before it changes to a muddy brown color. It should start turning murky again tomorrow. Glad to see some nice fish are on the way up into the skinny water.

Looked like gar were out and about hitting near trees as well. Must still be spawning. Lots of smaller fish hitting the surface too. On my way back in, I noticed a little bit of heat coming off the water. It was easy to sense warmth contrasted against the cool night air, although the difference was very subtle. Won't be long before the topwater bite starts up. That also means the muggy humidity isn't far off either.
