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!

• Caddo Report 7-23-2009...goose egged

It's been a while since I've fished on Caddo Lake. The last time I was out there, the pads had hardly come in at all. Running across the lake today, I discovered most spots are filled with pads and hydrilla. I'm not sure I could even get the boat through with the trolling motor in some spots I've fished in the past. I fished somewhere new today though. Where? Big Cypress Bayou. Didn't catch a thing. First cast was around 7:45am after a long run across boat row C. Water temps were 82-83 early and mid to upper 80's at 11am. Big Cypress has some stain to it.

Motored up to around Cypress Village and fished the north bank of the channel. I mainly tossed weighted 10" worms and a Norman DD22. The person fishing with me was throwing a few things including a swim jig, a 5" swimbait, and a H2O Xpress crankbait in firetiger. He claimed a good bass swam up off the pads behind his white swim jig, but never bit. I had small bumps on the 10" Power Worm, but when I set the hook, nothing was there. That worm hung up on everything along the bank in about 9 feet of water every other cast. Looks like I am good at finding the logs, but not the fish.

I have a few more opportunities to fish coming up, so I'm going to run to the same area again and then fish a spot with a 30 foot hole nearby.
