Right now the Basstrix Paddle Tail Tube is the hottest thing around and hardly anyone can get their hands on any, I have heard they are going for $20 a pack on eBay right now. If you have not seen them, this is what they look like. Some online retailers carry them, but nearly all of them are backordered and are not taking new orders. Show More Summary
The short term forecast for Gadsden, AL is continued downpour of 4lb and bigger bass. To put it simply, the fishing is out of this world right now at Lake Guntersville. The weights are unbelievable!! The top 50 cut sits at 20lbs - 11oz; 20lbs even puts you in 64th place out of 99 anglers. Show More Summary
We were all by ourselves when we got to this little rock point. We fished it hard with topwater. I was able to catch two nice keepers on a Yellow Magic. I then hooked a 3lb plus smallie on a bone colored Barely Legal Vixen, but I horsed it a bit near the boat and he got off. About 5 minutes later.......
Guntersville is one of the all time bass factories that Bassmasters stops at. This time of year, there are a lot of different bites going on. A few fish are still moving up, so staging and sight fish can probably be a part of someone's bags, but most of the fish are wadding up in post spawn areas or looking to gorge on the shad spawn bite that should be in full swing. ...
Since I got a late draw, I knew if anyone was going to go to my starting area there was no way to beat them, so we started on a quick main river rock area for about 15 minutes, caught a 13" smallie on topwater and that was it.
A complete 180 occurred this past Saturday on Pool 2. In short, John Haynes & I were each able to bag a nice limit on the very same body of water that skunked me the weekend before. I personally believe it had to do with location, we fished many of the same lures & techniques, conditions were pretty similar but the scenery had changed....
I was suprised to see in my latest BassProShops catalouge, they were advertising the heck of the Sexy Shad crankbaits in both diving baits and the Wild Eye Shad.
April 2009 Issue - The IMA EMAILER brings you news from IMA pro staff members across the USA and worldwide. Anglers everywhere experience down cycles on their favorite waterways. Maybe a drought or other inclement weather conditions cause the fish population to be less than abundant. Or perhaps a shad die-off or a couple of poor spawns have limited the number of fish that...
Its been a few years since I have fished Coon Lake, but I have had my share of success there. I figured we could run and gun until we got on a pattern and I knew the lake well enough to keep it going from there. I drew Ron Smith, he lives close to the lake, so we met at the landing.

Congratulations to Brad Longerbone from MN, he was the highest scoring member of my Bassin' Blog group for ESPN Fantasy Fishing at the Smith Mtn Lake event. He also won my FLW group, but received a nice Berkley Prize Pack for his efforts, so someone else will win this group prize. Show More Summary
I made the decision to run to Pool 5 and try to hit a home run in some pads. It was a tough call, because I had some other good fish and areas as well. I kind of talked myself into because I was kind of tired of consistent high finishes in money tournaments, but no big wins to show for it.
I just recently ordered and received a big batch of custom swim jigs from Super K. I don't throw a lot of different colors, so I just stocked up on the ones I normally throw. Hard to see from this picture, but I ordered all my jigs with custom red thread to tie the skirts. The two left colors (White Flash & Kizew Gill)...

This past Saturday looked to be one of our last truly semi-warm days here in Minnesota. So my bass fishing pal, Josh Douglas, and I decided to chase some cool water bronzebacks. Josh & I got on the river a little before 10am, it will still plenty cool, probably 45 degree air temps and water temps hovered around 48-49 degrees. Show More Summary
Well let's get right to the point! ...
I could feel myself being getting little unnerved by having two boats there and having trolling motor issues two days in a row. Not to mention one of the boats there was my buddy's 1st partner and asked him if he could go there, my buddy politely told him he rather not, but he went there anyways and the other boats was his son.

ABA recently released an updated Minnesota & Wisconsin 2009 Schedule, they made on change on bodies of water, which I am guessing was due to permits. Also, they moved two tournaments from launching on the MN to WI side, also probably because of permit issues and costs. Show More Summary
Last weekend was busy with birthday parties for my 1 yard old daughter, last night & tonight are all about lawn work and then finally tomorrow, my first real bass fishing trip in my boat. I will probably be up late getting some new line on a few reels, most of them have terribly old line right now, plus i have 3 new reels, so it...
We headed out across the lake and not many of the early boats seem to go the direction we did. We arrived at the first area and I pitched my 1/2oz Black & Blue Jig into he cane grass and as I was letting the trolling motor down, one already had the jig and fish # 1 was in the boat, my 3rd pitch yielded fish #2 as well.
