Go The Distance - Premier North West Bass Fishing

Posted July 31, 2014

Northwest Bass Fishing - Go The DistanceOur favorite home waters undeniably have some great Bass lurking in the shadows and waiting for us in our favorite honey holes, but living in the Pacific Northwest puts us in an ideal position to head for waters that are a little more distant. Yes, you can catch some quality fish in Silver Lake, Lacamas Lake, Vancouver Lake, Battleground Lake, the Willamette, backwaters of the Columbia on the Oregon and Washington sides, and some smaller, less notable waters within a short drive, but it is worth it to do some research, pull out some...

Posted June 15, 2014

It’s as simple as picking between braid and monofilament, right? Well, not quite. In recent decades fishing line technology has been leapfrogging itself and with the present varieties of line and their specific uses available, it might pay you to make your spool-up decisions armed with a little more information.In a more primitive day, fisherman could only use gut, hair, silk or string to connect hook to rod. {“Look!

One thing is common to all soft plastic baits: If you rig them properly, you can penetrate deep into ‘snaggy’ cover and present the bait to fish that would never see other categories of baits because they feature treble hooks or exposed hooks.From Left to Right among the...

Tournaments? That’s Just For The Pros, Right?

Posted May 20, 2014

Bob with a brute! Okay admit it: You’ve watched those Bass fishing T.V. shows, and when all those competitors with their fancy boats and gear blasted off to their secret honey holes you thought, ‘I’ll never do anything like that. That’s just for experts and professionals. Besides, fishing is for fun, not frantically casting and trying to make money.’Well it’s true, anything can be taken to an extreme and as far as I’m concerned if you’re not having fun, you’re not really fishing.
