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!

• Some Red River South Marina Photos

Had a chance to head out to the marina this afternoon to check the water level. Several boats were coming in while I was there. Many more were still out on the water. The entire parking lot was full of empty boat trailers. I can already tell this weigh-in is going to take a while to get through.

The ramp itself is still very usable. The docks are still above water, but the middle walkway is under at one spot. You should be able to see it in one of the photos below. The water on the river is definitely up and muddy, but they call it the "Red" for a reason.

The one thing I didn't get a shot of is the little store there at the marina. In addition to selling food and snacks, they also sell some tackle and boat supplies. You can always find out more at redriversouthmarina.com.

where to obtain the hard plastic keepers for spinnerbaits? the ones that strikeking has on their priemer spinnerbaits.

I'm really not sure how to approach your question. On one hand, you posted it as a comment on the Red River South Marina, so I'd have to assume you meant locally. On the other hand, your English is not so good, so perhaps you're asking a general question. You've posted this comment twice now, so it's obvious you are in need of some assistance. Hopefully you can clarify what you meant on your next visit.

I'm also not sure if you meant to say a trailer hook keeper or a skirt keeper or collar.

I'll preface my response by saying I am not familiar with the hook keepers used on Strike King's Premier Spinnerbaits. Perhaps you can provide a link illustrating them. I am familiar with the keepers that are packaged along with the generic Strike King trailer hooks, however.

I do not think Red River South Marina carries any trailer hook keepers. That being said, locally, we have a Bass Pro in the area, two Academy Sports stores, several Walmart stores which carry Strike King trailer hooks, and several small tackle shops, including Bayou Outdoors, Northwood, and Bacon's. All should carry something in terms of a trailer hook keeper.

I suggest you read my post on trailer hooks.

You don't have to use a particular brand of trailer hook keeper. You can take a hole puncher to a milk jug and use those tabs as keepers. You can go to a hardware store and purchase plastic tubing. Then cut the tubing into smaller pieces and thread one on your hook as a keeper.
