Fishing Report

Competitive bass fishing like every other sport, has its winners and losers. I personally don't know of a more humbling sport. Many anglers like to practice before a big tournament. They're not necessarily trying to hook the fish, instead they're trying to gauge whether or not an area is productive by the numbers of bites they get. Sometimes they can even tell a big fish bite from a small fish bite, or they will fish with barbless hooks, allowing the fish to shake the bait off as they play it towards the boat. To the outsider, practice ...

Fishing Report

Expect the waterways to be crowded if you're planning on heading out, now that the 'summer' season has started. Last year I fished on Sunday and Monday during Memorial Day weekend and surprisingly didn't have to deal with a lot of boat traffic. My secret was to fish very early on both days, while making sure to be off the water around noon. One of the lakes I visited was Lake Pardee. Lake Pardee doesn't allow body contact with the water so there were only fisherman on the lake which made it a nice getaway from the ...
