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.

• Off the pier 1-24-2010

I'm not quite sure what time I started fishing this afternoon. The sky was all blue without a single cloud and the wind was blustery. Clouds started rolling in about 30 minutes after I made my first cast. I'm going to assume that was the leading edge of a front. I missed the weather report.

Caught three. Missed two. Nothing fantastic to speak of. Water temps were 55 degrees and clarity was less stained than what it's been the last couple of days.

Started out throwing a 1/2oz Red Eye Shad because the wind was a bit too much for casting soft plastics. The wind kept catching my line and blowing it into tree limbs. Even with the Red Eye Shad, I was struggling to keep line out of the trees. Didn't have any takers on that. Also pitched a weightless Yo Mama, but as I already said, the wind just didn't want to cooperate.

After the wind died down a bit, I switched off to a shad laminate Wave Worms Tiki Stick. That's what all three fish were caught on. First came a few feet off a cypress tree. Felt like a 1 1/2 to 2lber. I wasn't in the mood to weigh anything today. Second fish came after the sun was setting. Third fish bit a little after the sun went down. That third one surprised me. When I made the cast, a swirl blew up and then I felt him bite down. All three seemed to be near trees, but not right up on them like I expected. The two misses were a little closer to trees. I missed one of them three times in a row. The other one just tapped a couple times and felt too small to even be a bass.

At least I know they are starting to come back up with the warmer water. Not sure what to expect for later this week as colder temperatures will dominate our forecast. Looks like water temps might hit a standstill. I wonder how many are starting to make the move up to bed.
