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 3-23-2010

In the 20 or so minutes of free time that I had, I was able to pick off two bass fishing off the pier this evening. Having published a post yesterday, I just couldn't get fishing off my mind. Seemed like the perfect distraction. Tossed a BBB Biobait Trick Stick rigged weightless.

First fish was really shallow. Missed the bite a couple times, but finally set the hook on it. That bass was a little bit of a jumper. When I lipped it, I noticed the tail was bloodied up. That told me a lot about what the bass are doing right now. Time to hit 'em shallow.

Second fish came off a tree almost out of casting range. Saw a swirl, so I hit the tree a few times. Had to let the bait sit there a while for the bass to take it. That one was a runner. Came right at me, so I had to frantically take up line to keep the fight on my side. Lipped it just fine. Had a healthy row of teeth, so now I have a very subtle case of bass thumb.


Looks like they are active, but on the apprehensive side.

Bassdem, Are you fishing off the same pier every time? Is it a public fishing pier?

BassFishingDem said...

Yes. Same pier all the time. Private dock. Limited as to where I can fish. Actually impressed at how often I can find fish over such a small area.
