Jeremy Starks used a fishing method called “strolling” or “long-lining” to win the Douglas Lake Elite last weekend. This is where you basically cast out your bait, then get on the small motor and move away from the bait until most or all of the line is off the reel, then begin your retrieve. This [...]
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 [...]
What were you doing on July 9? On the morning of July 9, 1955, David Hayes of Leitchfield, Ky. began trolling in the Phillips Bend area of Dale Hollow Lake. Just as he cleared the point near what’s now Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park, his rod bent like he snagged a piano. But…not a [...]

Would you be able to fish all day, multiple days, in the pouring rain, freeze your tail off and concentrate on every cast like it was life or death? I’m sure some of you can, and we all know the legends of this sport have done/can do that. But not everyone. TN writer Bob Hodge [...]
Wesley Strader’s niiiiiiiiiice 6-07 spotted bass is now an official Tennessee state record. He caught the fish back in July, from the Ocoee River in Polk County. (He also released it – just kidding – check out the lively eye of that fish….) His new record handily defeats the former state record of 5-14, held [...]
Due to the mind-numbing, puke-causing, overwhelming coverage of the elections yesterday, you may not have heard that voters in Tennessee, Arkansas and South Carolina overwhelmingly approved amendments to protect hunting and fishing as constitutional rights – except in Arizona. In Tennessee, 90 percent of voters supported the amendment, while similar measures received 89 and 82 [...]
Did you know that 10 states currently guarantee the right to hunt and fish in their constitutions?
