Welcome to the BassBlaster, your daily email about all things bassin’. Take a sec to forward this Blaster to a bassin’ bud, willya? *|FACEBOOK:LIKE|* Today’s Top 3 1. Gerald Swindle hid my boat at the last tournament. I think I’ll get him back. – Aaron Martens talking about the Toyota All-Star. Pretty funny. Yep, pranks [...]
Found the Toyota All-Star tourney pretty durn interesting, here’s why: Everyone fished shallow. Every one of the 12 guys – including Aaron Martens – fished shallow. Shelbyville, I’m talking about, which had shallow and deep fish, not the Decatur bowl which was shallow only. It was only 12 guys and seems like they all “defaulted” [...]
Bass fishing can be a real drag. I’m not talking “bummer-like” drag – bass fishing is way too cool for that. Nor am I speaking to the drag on your reel. It’s important, it’s a drag, but no cigar. Here’s a hint: The “drag” I am referring to happens to some degree every time you make a [...]
It’s officially 2011 and the Bassmaster Classic is less than 60 days away. That means from now ’til late February you can expect to be swamped in a deluge of Classic-related posts, stories, blogs and other tidbits from your favorite fishing websites.

If there were a college curriculum designed specifically to prepare aspiring professional anglers for life at the tour level, what would it look like? That’s the question that popped into my head after coming across this Q&A posted at BassEast.com earlier this week.
Have you ever studied a hot technique and said to yourself, “that can’t be worth it–if I have to mess with all that then I just won’t catch them!”? Bo knows the feeling…there is just so much work a sane man is willing to do, especially when the clock is ticking, you are out blowing [...]
Lost in the BASS Post Season/Skeet Reese AOY controversy was the fact that Aaron Martens lost the Lake Jordan tournament by a mere 3 ounces. That is, he lost by 3 ounces AFTER he accumulated 24 ounces in penalties due to four dead fish. (Ouch!) The narrow loss adds yet another 2nd place finish to [...]
This story should make Skeet Reese feel better (if misery loves company, that is). Here’s the gist : Team enters expensive fishing tournament. Team catches giant fish and wins $999,453. Tournament Director discovers one team mate fished without a license. Team watches $999,453 slip away!
