Fishing Report

This summer so far hasn't turned out the way I planned it several months ago. In a perfect world, I'd be on the water or in a campsite every day until it was time for me to go back to work. Having a growing family makes that nearly impossible as not everyone's schedule is in line with mine. Fortunately I have a window of opportunity coming up for me to get out fishing. It's both exciting and a little difficult to decide where I want to go fishing. My list of destinations has been narrowed down ...

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 ...
