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.

• Cross Report 3-18-2010

Tried fishing last night off the pier. Picked one little dink off towards the very end using a BBB Biobait Trick Stick. I think the worm was longer than the fish. Lots of boats prefishing for the tourney today. Really makes fishing tough on this lake with this much pressure. Seems like they aren't in the biting mood. Used the time outside to recover a fluke that another angler had hung up about 20 feet up in a cypress tree. About 20-30 feet of line dangled from the snagged lure, so I wasn't happy about having line in the way of casting. Used a long stick of bamboo to free the lure and knock it down. Tried pulling, but broke lots of line off. Funny that the person who left the lure couldn't do the same. I was able to break off another ten feet of line easily. Anyway, posted a tweet on Twitter about the mystery fluke and Rich Lindgren was able to identify it as a Lake Fork Tackle Magic Shad. Still had that garlicky smell, even after sitting in a tree for at least a couple of days.

Got out this afternoon a couple of hours before the tournament boats started roaring in. Wanted a decent afternoon of fishing without any interruptions. Turned out there were at least three other boats already fishing. Most of the afternoon was spent complaining about bad casts, working out unruly line, and controlling the small boat being tossed around by the wind. Kind of a miserable outing. Pitched an Eakins finesse jig with a V&M Baby V Chunk trailer at trees all over the place and never found a fish. Did come across one slot limit bass swimming among the trees. Also scared two other fish. Whether or not they were bass, I haven't a clue.

Quit after a while of watching the tournament anglers cruise in. Water temps were 63 to 64 degrees and clarity was still stained, although for this lake, the visibility wasn't half bad. Looks like I had better stick with Caddo Lake until next month rolls around.

And yes, the crappie have been active on Cross over the last week or so.
