The Bassin’master Classic is the ultimate fishing show. The Greatest Free Show on Earth, I call it. And since it’s a show, it’s gotta have some showmanship, right? So here are a couple quick tips to help out the Classic anglers. 1. Classic, Terminator-like quote. Hit us with something like “I’ll be bahk.” Far as [...]
…for bassin’. Just like it sounds: you speak, software transcribes…sorta. Bassin’ lingo ain’t exactly normal. Check out what it typed, guess what I said: Winner fished Jean Leroux salt craws around docks and I drill a. Also fished a spinner but.
Funny stuff from Dave Wolak’s Facebook page this morning.
If there were a performance enhancing drug for fishing, what would it do? That’s the question Bass Parade asked a handful of Elite Series pros while hanging out at the Bassmaster Classic in New Orleans, La. The answers we got ranged from a potion that would enable you to see through water, to a pill [...]
Did you know there’s junk floating around everywhere in space? And I don’t mean stars and asteroids and stuff.
If the mind-numbingly intelligent conversation featured in part 1 of our Not Your Average Q&A installment with Dave Mercer left you blowing drool bubbles and grunting like a caveman, hold on to your MENSA card because we’re blowing the doors off this taco stand in part 2! No underwear talk this time. Promise!
If you’re anything like me, you woke up this morning and said to yourself: “You know, I’d really like to read an article on a bass fishing website that talks about Trip Weldon’s underwear.” I’ve got you covered, bro! In this edition of Not Your Average Q&A, bass fishing’s latest overnight sensation [you'll have to [...]

War, peace, drugs and rock and roll. The 1960s were packed full of all sorts of social and political movements. In this period of marked social change, B.A.S.S. figured young men had two options: Fish or turn into one of those God-forsaken, limp-wristed, long-haired hippie types.
Just when I’d thought I’d seen every Bill Dance-related video on the web, I ran across this little gem. In this old-school commercial, Bill touts the virtues of Natural Light, “the beer with a taste for food.” Was Natty Light really so bad back then that they had to market it as an ingredient in [...]
After watching this Lake Amistad bass get “fizzed”, I’m trying to figure out how to perform a similar technique on humans. I could really use something like this after a big mexican food dinner. Alka Seltzer and Pepto ain’t got nothin’ on the fizz! You’ve probably heard of fizzing, but if you haven’t, it’s basically [...]
So, maybe I missed the big announcement a while back. But did you know Mike Iaconelli’s wife, Becky, is preggers? Becky recently filled in for Mike as a guest-blogger on the “Going Ike” feature at BassInsider.com and says she’s approaching “big as a barn” status with three months left to go in the pregnancy. Congrats, [...]
Dang! Just read through Bo’s 8-parter (yes 8) about the Karen Savik DQ and related issues, which Bo is rightly calling “Cullgate.” Good work, you’ll enjoy it. You’ll read them all next week, starting Monday, but in the meantime here’s a little video-driven preview:
Nobody throws ‘normal-sized’ worms anymore. All the cool kids know that if you’re gonna sling plastic, you better be chuckin’ a worm that’s at least 10-inches long—12-inches, even better. But, if you really want to step your game up, you’ll forego that cliche hand-poured plastic altogether and pull out the big gum… I mean, gun.
Recently read about a new fly fishing hat, pretty funny, and I quote: Imperial Headwear announced today the release of a new cap designed specifically for fly fishermen…. The cap features an industry-first worsted felt panel across the visor to conveniently hold fishing lures and flies [does anyone really do this?]. It also features an [...]
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.
