Alright already. Every year around now my wife asks me what I’m thankful for, and gotta admit I don’t think about it much – til we go around the table and it’s my turn. But this year, for some reason, I am. So here’s a list. 1. Bassin’ Folks (You) While back, in the BassFan [...]
Okay, I’m heading out next week for the annual huntin’ excursion, so looking for some folks who want to get rich and famous by posting on this-here blog thingy. Okay, not rich (no pay), but a little famous since Bassin’ Parade is the widest-read blog in all of bassin’. Maybe you want to get something [...]
[Sorry for the delayed announcement here, folks, Jason got distracted by "other things."] The inaugaural season of the BassParade Fantasy league is officially in the books, and we’ve got a little catching up to do. J. Embry, we owe you some tackle!
All the recent tourney talk has centered around the hotly contested race for the Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year (AOY) title. But let’s not forget that BassParaders are paying close attention to an even tighter AOY contest that’s playing out in the virtual world.
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. [...]
(If you missed the “Al” byline up top, Al Smith wrote this!) Have you ever been away from something you really love? You know what I’m talking about. Work gets crazy, the in-laws show up for the weekend and all of a sudden life keeps you off the water for a few weeks. But that [...]
You may have heard this through the grapevine already, but Al Smith is back in bassin’ fishin’. We’re going to be rolling out some cool stuff, so be stayin’ tuned. Here’s some stuff from the official-type pressin’ release: > Today Jay Kumar announced that Al Smith is once again part of the team. > Al [...]
Listen up all you fantasy fishing nerds, it’s time to put up or shut up! Bass Parade has started our very own B.A.S.S. fantasy fishing league and we’d love for you to sign up and take this bass-kicking we’re ready to dole out. We’re working on some prizes for those who participate. That is IF you [...]
Are you obsessed with crankbaits, spinnerbaits, jigs, jerkbaits, rods, reels, line, etc. – meaning any ONE of these things? Do you just NEED TO KNOW about the latest and greatest, evaluate whatever it is, and issue an opinion? If so, we need you – maybe. We’re looking for folks who are rabid about
At Bass Parade we tend to talk a lot ABOUT fishing, but for some reason we haven’t actually ‘talked fishing’ that much. Which is a shame, because in addition to being ruggedly handsome [Jason] and smelling like daffodils [Jay], we actually DO know how to fish. Well… Jay can’t catch a bass to save his [...]
Bass Parade is headed to the Classic and we want you to come along with us! Well… sorta’. Here’s the deal. We want YOUR suggestions for interview questions you’d like us to ask the pros while chillin’ in The Big Easy next month. The questions can be serious, silly or somewhere in between. Ask a [...]
Since you’re a diehard BassParader you know we’ve been doing regular posts from the world of SCIENCE. Why? Because some interesting stuff comes from that side of fishing, and you barely hear about it…unless you’re Brian Waldman. Brian – whose made a local-ish name for himself with his blog bigindianabass.com – makes it his bidness [...]
Have you ever wanted to know what Dave Wolak’s favorite barnyard animal is? Or maybe you’ve wondered what the Yamaha pro’s average letter grade was in college? We wish we could tell you. All we learned from our recent interview with Dave Wolak is that the dude is a little off his rocker, and that [...]
We’ve been working on a little sumpin’ sumpin’ that we think you’ll enjoy. Exactly when is this awe-inspiring (yeah right) project going to be released to BassParade readers? Only Jay knows. But for a not-so-subtle hint about what lies ahead, check out the video below.
When we launched BassParade last week we made sure to invite our readers to participate by posting comments. On a personal level, I’m satisfied with it because we’ve yet to receive any comments that begin, “Exactly how much crack have you been smoking?” or “You are wrong on so many levels it is hard to [...]
A GREAT show by the always-good Tournament Fishing Radio (TFR) guys, with BassParade’s own Jay Kumar as the special guest — that’s “special” in the “special ed” sense…. Find it on iTunes here, or directly from the TFR website here.
