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!

• Bought some jigs

If there were ever a reason to convince fellow anglers to get on Twitter, finding out about deals on products would be it. Many lure companies, both big and small, use Twitter and Facebook to promote their offerings, sometimes ineffectively, but they are there. When people ask me what the point of Twitter is, this example would highlight its usefulness. There is a dialogue which exists that mirrors the same kind of back and forth you might experience at your local tackle shop. Twitter is one gigantic tackle shop where anglers shoot the breeze. You can avoid all the extra clutter and get all the information you want right at your finger tips.

Last night, I saw that Tacklewarehouse posted a tweet that they had Revenge Flip Jigs on sale, reduced by 25 to 30 percent. Of course, if you are someone who frequents the Tacklewarehouse web site anyway, you would have seen the deal posted in the sidebar. Anyone who has read my review of Revenge Flip Jigs knows that they have become my primary large jig, the Eakins jig being my finesse option. Despite these jigs being marketed for flipping, I can fish them in a variety of ways, including swimming them. The lakes I regularly fish seem to cater to fishing this style of jighead, whether I'm working across sticks or around weeds. I know I won't be using them to punch any mats. In my area, I only know one store which sells these jigs. Even that store only carries three to four colors, if they are in stock at all. I splurged on colors I cannot buy locally. I'm thrilled that they were also on sale, but now I know I can get them at Tacklewarehouse if I need more.

Here's what is on the way:
3 Black/Blue 1/2oz
2 Black/Red 1/2oz
3 Bluegill 1/2oz
2 Brown/Black/Amber 1/2oz
2 Chartreuse Shad 3/8oz
2 Craw 1/2oz
3 Chameleon Chartreuse 1/2oz

At this point, many of them are selling out.

Thanx for this post, Bassdem. I was introduced to jigs this last year and haven't found a favorite brand yet. But I like what you pointed out in your review of these. I'll be sure to check them out for next year's season.

That bluegill pattern looks killer! I'd swim the heck out of that one.

I specifically bought the Bluegill and the Chartreuse Shad for that very reason.
