      Post Senko Worm Tactics

    Gary Yamamoto really broke the mold when he invented the Senko Worm. It is brilliant bait and it is widely used. But are we using the Senko to its fullest ability?

    There are fundamental tactics that, to me, are key when fishing the Senko Worm. Oh yes, there are many proven ways to fish the Worm, like ‘dead sticking' or ‘wacky worming' to name a few. All will work in fooling old Bucket and Smallmouth, but consider what a smaller hook and finessing the Senko worm can accomplish! I personally th... [Read More]

      Post Skipping for Bass

    Another good technique for putting Bass in the live well is ‘skipping'. Skipping bait under potential Bass holding cover requires a lot of practice. However, once mastered it reaps excellent rewards!

    Skipping requires two key fundamental elements. A good free spooling reel and accuracy. Accurate casting is a must. Side casting with your rod tip close to the water surface is a good way to start off your skipping technique. As time goes by different types of cover will determine what casting te... [Read More]

      Post Some Great Tips To Help You Catch More Fish While River Fishing

    In my opinion, the most important thing to remember while river fishing is not to spook the water that you're about to fish. I've seen entirely too many anglers do this very thing. For example, they'll wade 1/4 of the way out into the river and begin fishing. Thus leaving themselves standing in the very water they probably should have fished first.

    The first tip is: When river fishing, remember to work the area that you want to fish in "sections". Don't just jump in and start fishing in... [Read More]

      Post Snag Proof Frogs - Baits That Catch Big Bass!

    It was the late 1950s and Harry Ehlers, an avid fisherman and advertising executive at Solo Marx (better known as Totes, makers of rubber rain boots) observed a boot mold being dipped into plastic. He had the idea to create a fishing lure using the same method. As with many fishing lure businesses, Snag Proof started over the kitchen stove. Mr. Ehlers combined his knowledge gleaned from working at Totes Rubber Company with his love for fishing and created a soft, hollow-bodied frog lure for... [Read More]

      Post Smallmouth Bass Fishing In The Fall

    Smallmouth Bass Fishing In The Fall
    By Bobby Ivie

    Fall is by far one of the best times to fish any smallmouth lake. This is a great time to catch your limit of big fish.

    Smallies like to stock up ahead for winter, a time when they are not as likely to get a belly full of shad or whatever baitfish is available in that lake.

    So, the key is to locate baitfish. That's where you will find the smallies.

    Your focus in the fall will not be much different than in the spring. Set your sites o

      Post Smallmouth Bass Fishing In The Winter

    Smallmouth Bass Fishing In The Winter
    By Bobby Ivie

    Unless ice fishing is really your thing, you might do better fishing for southern smallmouth bass in the winter where the fishing can be good year around.

    You will often find smallies suspended over points, humps, next to bluffs and ledges. Look for irregular features. Quick drop-offs with quick access to deeper waters are good prospects.

    As always, if you can find the bait fish, you will find the smallmouths.

      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?
