When I first started fishing halfway seriously, even before I “became” a bass angler, I started keeping a fishing log or diary. I recorded the usual stuff like the weather that day, what I caught and on what, baits used and sizes of any notable catches, even moon phase. When computers came along, companies started making electronic [...]
Been going over some BassGold data for Lake Fork (a popular request), saw in an article on the PAA tourney there in 2008 iwhere Kelly Jordon – who headed the winning team – said this about using 12-pound fluorocarbon to crank Fork’s heavy timber: Any heavier and they wouldn’t bite it. You can still get [...]
Listen Up Central Pro-Am Fishermen! [Posted on the BassGold.com blog, sticking it up here too because you should know about it bassin'heads!] Wow, that was some couple months. At the end of 2011, FishingGold.com had just over 2,000 tournament patterns in the database, which includes almost every B.A.S.S. tourney from the first one in 1967. [...]
Anyone remember the Gene Larew Carolina Chicken? We’ve never heard of it here at the Parade HQ, apparently Gene Larew doesn’t make it anymore and no shots of it online. Asking because we’re going over some FishingGold data, and a 5th-place finisher in a tourney used a Carolina Chicken. We need to classify it as [...]
FishingGold.com now has 57 more patterns in the database, bringing the totals to more than 2,050 winning and placing patterns on 200 waters. We’ve had quite a few requests for Missouri waters, so that’s what we’re focusing on for a bit (not exclusively). This time the uploaded patterns are all from Heartland Trails Elite and [...]
I missed a Dock Talk on Bassin’Fan last week. Found it reeeeeeeeeal interesting. Here it is (abbreviated): David Dudley [has] been fishing Smith Mountain Lake in his home state of Virginia. The lake fishes a lot like Ouachita, he said, so he’s trying to gauge the state of the bite in anticipation for next week’s [...]
Are you freakin’ kiddin’ me?! After the latest upload of winning and placing patterns to the FishingGold.com database, you can now search 2,010 patterns on 200 water bodies! Two…thousand…plus…patterns. That’s pretty dang outstanding, ain’t it!
FYI we just uploaded pattern info from top finishers in all 2006 and 2007 FLW Series events (remember those?), as well as a few patterns from a “Midwest trail that shall remain nameless for now” – we’ll make an announcement when we upload more patterns from it. Here are the lakes covered in the latest [...]
Just a quick FYI that we uploaded 73 more patterns into the FishingGold.com database. These include several Elite Series events which brings B.A.S.S. events up to date (meaning from the ’60s up ’til now), all 2011 FLW Tour events to date, and a few PAA and EverStart finishes. This brings the count to just under [...]

Here’s a quick look at a Wheeler summer Pattern Report using the tourneys currently in the FishingGold.com database. Done in honor of this week’s Elite Series event. Gonna have to turn up the vol a bit, something weird happened saving it to YouTube.
Just a quick FishingGold! update that we uploaded tourney data from the following tourney trails: > Bass Champs 2006 and 2007 – Nearly all tourneys, most multiple places (1st and/or 2nd and/or 3rd) per tourney. > BFLs 2007 – 1st place only, most of the tourneys but not all. > Winners of this year’s 2011 [...]
Best. Pattern. Info. Ever. Seriously. Do yourself a solid and take the time to read this. Here’s the deal: Many of you are missing out on literally the world’s coolest and maybe most informative tool in bassin’: FishingGold.com. Since our little band of merry bassers built it, you’d expect me to say that…but we didn’t [...]
We’ve gotten this question a bunch – what lakes are now in the current FishingGold.com database. We assumed most fishermen would be familiar with the bigger tourney lakes in our great country, but definitely understand wanting to know for sure before shelling out $35 – though that is one reason FishingGold has a 3-day trial! [...]
The Best Pattern Info Ever? Are you ready? Of course you are. Because three words describe you: Die Hard Basser. You love to fish, love to catch even more, hate to lose, must have the latest, greatest, coolest fishing stuff there is. Especially if the stuff ROCKS, as my good buddy Z-Train says FishingGold! does. [...]
