    by Bobby Ivie

    If you want to get serious about bass fishing, it's important that you learn to use all the tools.

      Post Split Shot Bass Sneak Attack

    Split Shot Bass Sneak Attack
    By Craig DeFronzo

    The Split shot rig is a finesse version of a fish finding rig along the lines of but not quite the Carolina Rig. Too many anglers dismiss this method as being too slow or a small fish method. The truth is that it is a deadly finesse method that can cover water as efficiently and as quickly as the Carolina rig. The split shot method also is a great way to catch limits of keeper sized bass. What tournament angler could dispute the success of that?

    Bass Fishing At Lake Gaston
    by Steven Vonbrandt

    Lake Gaston is located in both Virginia and North Carolina. It is a large lake of 20,300 acres. Many professional and amateur tournaments are held here each year, so it receives a good deal of fishing pressure. This is where we competed in the Regional Finals for the Red Man Tournament Trail in 2000. The main species of fish in the lake are largemouth bass, striped bass, and black crappie. Other species include some walleye, chain p

    RALEIGH, N.C. (April 26, 2005)


    Some day in the not-so-distant future, people may drive for hours just to go fishing in Fayetteville. While that may sound a bit far-fetched today, by as early as next summer, it could be a reality. Or at least thatís what officials with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission hope after they announced last month that the Commission will begin construction on a new state-of-the-art fishing education facility in Cumberland County this summer.

      Post Bass Fishing with Tubes: The Texas Twist

    Bass Fishing with Tubes: The Texas Twist
    by Craig DeFronzo

    We all know how effective tubes fished on internal weighted heads can be. The fact is that if you only use them this way, you are seriously hampering the true potential of this bait and its versatility. Iíve discovered, many years ago that fishing a tube in weed choked waters was a great way to catch fish. The problem I encountered was the open hook continuously and unmercifully getting snagged all day long. To combat thi

    How to Build Your Own Cricket Trap
    By Albert McBee

    When I was a kid, my father would choose a weekend for a catfishing trip to Lake Texoma, giving me ample notice to catch lots of trotline bait. The pond I liked to get bait from was full of black perch and bluegill from 3 inches to 3/4 pound each. They liked crickets. Lots of crickets.

    It took me an hour after dark to chase and catch a dozen crickets to fish with the following morning. Then the perch ate them so fast that I ran out wi
